    2.7 out of 5 stars. Gave 2 weeks notice and quit. Start-up company feel is becoming super corporate. It's getting bad.

    I worked at Tesla Motors part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    +Smart coworkers
    +Efficient and non-overbearing store managers
    +Overall friendly environment

    Highly encourage young, smart people going to university and looking for a part-time job to apply, esp if you are an engineer or environmental science major. Great opportunity! Tips: If you interview, look clean-cut, wear glasses if you need them (majority of my co-workers wear glasses) and have a square, corporate vibe about you like a pressed, white collared shirt. Plus, speak very intellectually, articulately and with enthusiasm. The super corporate nerd is loved here!

    Cons

    -Transitioning to become super corporate
    -The part-time job will be expected to be your number one priority
    -Corporate/district managers see you as a easily replaceable, systematic number.
    -Moving up the corporate ladder is very tight (expect to put in one year of part time before being considered for a full time position).

    When I first got hired, Tesla had more of a start-up company vibe to it. Things are rapidly becoming super corporate and the way things are run, seems very systematic and machine-like. Before, it was more about overall customer experience. Now, it's be efficient, get their info, pass on the lead to make a sale.

    Also, if you want to become full-time at Tesla, be aware that you start part-time 30hrs a week at $13/hr, no commission, for about a year before you will be considered for a promotion, even if your work performance is solid. Salary for a full-timer in sales is about $40,000 annually. Commission is $60-$70 for every car you sell. This is factual information. Yes, I do find it a bit strange that you get $60 dollars for every $100,000 car you sell, BUT on the bright side, you still get your $40,000. (Note: Sales and delivery positions count for 90-95% of the company's jobs)

    Recently, they have been increasing entry-level position, part-time workers and decreasing the number of full-time workers because from a corporate standpoint, you do not have to pay healthcare, benefits, etc., less money to be put out. The goal is to have more part-time workers to do a full-time worker jobs for less benefits and less company expenses for the benefit of the corporation, as well as top shareholders. I think this model is a fantastic idea to follow if you own a big corporation. If I ever own a corporation, I want to follow this example to increase my wealth. Very smart idea!

    Tesla Motors, though, is a good company, esp with the technology and innovative machines they are creating. I really hope they strive to help mother earth in 2-3 years with their $30,000-$50,000 vehicle to positively preserve the environment for the better of the every man. Realistically, how it's going, I think it'll be more towards the $40,000-$50,000 range vs. $30,000 because it has to make company profit.

    Overall though, I hope that Tesla can positively impact the world and really help people in polluted cities and make the world a healthier and happier place to live in (while keeping it at an affordable price for the majority of people to buy for the sake of the environment)!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are not just a number in the system. They are people and are part of your team! Positively encourage your employees vs forcing out numbers and they'll work even harder for you.
