3 rounds of questions based on your resume and different types of scenarios thrown at you. Overall good experience. Not a lot of behavioral questions but definitely more of a conversation style interview.

McKinsey & Company

Many of us gained net worth in 2020 by having a stable job and investing in the stock market (some gained a lot by investing in Tesla, ARK etc.). In the meantime, millions of people lost jobs and could not afford rent (and these same people are unlikely to have benefited from the stock market). How do you feel about it? I’m not expecting any “correct answer” as I don’t think there is one correct answer. Just how people actually feel about it

I applied online. I interviewed at Tesla (Dallas, TX)

Interview

Phone interview. Technical questions based off of prior knowledge from industry. Lots of technical jargon and abbreviations which were hard to follow at times. Knew some of them but some seemed Tesla specific.

It starts with the HR recruiter understanding the fit of an individual to the role and excitement for the same. The next interview is with the hiring manager having 1-1 interview. If he/she likes it is then followed by a panel interview typically comprised of 5 people.

Interview

Tesla's Engineering department obtains an EXTREMELY intense recruiting process. You'll deal with two internal recruiters and do a total of 5 - 6 different interviews with people ranging from senior engineer to senior engineering manager. I originally applied for Vehicle Test Engineer. An internal recruiter reached out to me expressing interest in my skillset and wanted to conduct a phone screening to find out if I am suitable for the Component Test Engineer position.. and thus, the process began.

Interview Questions
  • Interview 1: Phone Screening -Resume Questions - Why do you want to work at Tesla
  • Interview 2: Behavioral Questions & Resume Questions - Tell me about yourself, why do you want to leave current situation? - Elaborate on XYZ on resume.
  • Interview 3: Technical Questions/ Situational Questions - What is difference between while loop and for loop? - What is your experience with Analog to Digital Converters? - If you where tasked to design a fixture to test XYZ, how would you conduct it?
  • Interview 4: Engineering Fundamental Exam
  • Interview 5: 2nd Phone Screening - Exam results - Preparation for Panel - Discuss Potential Salary range
  • Interview 6: Presentation to Panel/ 5 Breakout Rooms -Present to the panel about a problem you've previously solved pertaining to the role you're pursuing. - 5 individual interviews with each member of the panel discussing a combination of behavioral, technical, situational questions.

I applied online. I interviewed at Tesla (Singapore) in Sep 2021

Interview

An online interview was conducted by the HR/Recruitment team of Tesla. The whole experience was mundane and this is the first time I went for an interview with an interviewer who sounded like a robot and provided answers with little words. Utterly disgusted with the attitude and unprofessional.

Interview Questions
  • Difficult situations ever faced and how do you deal with them

Interview

Lengthy interview process. There is upfront no clear clarity what the process looks like exactly and in how many interview rounds you expect to be anticipating. My way or the Highway approach. Signs of a toxic work environment...

Interview Questions
  • Quite generic questions such as why do you want to work at Tesla and what can you bring to the company.
