    Customer Experience Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Walnut Creek, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tesla (Walnut Creek, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    This was easily the best experience I've had interviewing for a company. I'm used to a process that's is months long, with no transparency as far as when you'll be hearing back about next steps, and no indication of what your status is. Tesla was just the opposite. About 2 weeks after I applied, I got an email from the recruiter inviting me to schedule a phone interview for the same week. The interview went well, and she was clear about job expectations and expected salary. At the end of the interview, she said that I would receive an email early the next week to schedule an in-person interview at the Tesla showroom, which would be my final interview. I got the email in the time that she said, and once again scheduled an interview for the same week with the store's manager and assistant manager. At the end of my in person interview, the two interviewers said that they would speak with the recruiter about their thoughts and let me know soon. The following Monday, I got an email from the recruiter initiating a background check, and scheduling a final call later in the week. I was offered the job during the final phone call.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Tesla.

    Interview

    2 stages: First one was HR employee screening the interviewee to see if they are suitable to work at the company. Second one was speaking with the manager of the team to see if my technical/behavioral skills fit within the company

    I managed to receive an offer, the HR employee forgot to relay a commitment I had during summer (planned a trip with family for about 2 weeks) and that ended up having the offer rescinded.

    Got an email couple days after i applied. Asking to set up a date for an phone interview. During the phone interview general questions where asked about how should an associate behave at work. Passed the phone interview and was asked to Schedule a face to face interview. Two days later went for my face to face remember STUDY about tesla and the CEO. They will not ask you what's tesla dream just tell them. After the face to face was asked to perform a drug test and background. Got an email I passed and can move forward to setup a phsyical. Went to the phsyical they tested pretty much if your body can withstand the job your applying for. After the physical i was asked to do one more face to face interview with an supivoser now this is the person you need to impress be your self and knock it out the park and you are guaranteed to be hired. Remember tesla needs a lot of employees to reach there production goal so they need you. The hole process was about 2 months.
