    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Tesla (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied Online. It took more than 3+ months. I was interviewed for information security intern by a manager and the team via phone. First the screening interview by a technical recruiter. After the recruiter, the manager and team were interested in interviewing me and he found me suitable for the position (was a 40 minute interview purely technical) The team gave me a security challenge where I impressed them greatly (At least the HR said me that the team want me to move forward). After passing through this phase, the HR said your candidature will be reviewed by executives (asked for concise points about me). After few followups, the recruiter said that my application is escalated to CTO. No reply even after many followups after this. I seriously do not know what has happened. I lost hope of hearing back.

    Interview

    The interview was a standard interview process, asked about past experiences, skills and some behavior questions. There were indeed some technical questions regarding the position I applied to, but it was not very difficult

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Tesla in December 2016.

    Interview

    First round was a phone call with the HR who went over my resume asking various questions based on it.
    The second round was a phone interview with one of the hiring managers. The questions were from my resume and also included a couple of programming questions which I had to do in a shared screen environment.
    The third round was with another hiring manager and this round too was similar to the previous round with a programming question to finish it off.
    After these rounds, I was informed by the HR that I was selected for a summer internship and that his next call with me would be to discuss the package. A week later, the HR informed me that the team wants to conduct another interview. This was conducted by another hiring manager from a different team. This involved a coding round. After this round, the HR informed me that they cannot offer me the internship though I did manage to answer all the questions except for one.
