    I have been working at Tesla Motors (Less than a year)


    Tesla has fostered a culture of teamwork. Everyone is here working toward the same goal, and that makes it feel like a horizontally structured company. Even though the company is growing quickly, it still functions as a startup. This means that there isn't a lot of training or "perks" but there is no where else I'd rather be working. The friendly atmosphere and "work hard, play hard" mentality makes this a great place to work.


    Because Tesla still functions as a startup, there isn't any detailed training for new hires which can make the first couple weeks feel overwhelming. But this is a welcomed challenge for most.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Tesla Motors in August 2015.


    First interview was fairly straightforward. I talked with a university recruiter on the phone. Talked about experiences on your resume and your work ethic. Emphasized hands-on experience. We discussed the work culture and what is expected of Tesla interns. Afterwards, she asked about what interested me the most so she can fit me into a group. She contacted one of her partners to find a best fit for me and that is where I am at right now. Will post an update as the process goes along.
