    The Tesla recruiter never called for the phone screen, than emailed me to reschedule. When rescheduling, the time was at the recruiters convenience not mine. It felt like a quick process to just get me off the phone. She didn’t even seem enthusiastic.

    Delivery Experience Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Tesla (Pittsburgh, PA) in August 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was horrendous. The first interview was over the phone. It went smoothly. The second interview was over the phone. They said this was an interview to be a customer experience specialist. I tried correcting them and they told me that it is basically the same job. Wrong. The third interview was a video call. Their connection was bad and it was just another phone call. They asked me all of these questions about my skills. They said I was more than qualified, and Ill be hearing back from them in a few days. Three weeks later I got an e-mail. "We don't think you qualify for the position". The position in the e-mail was "Service advisor". Very disorganized. Very unprofessional. Very disappointed.

    Power Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lafayette, IN
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Tesla (Lafayette, IN) in August 2018.

    Interview

    One phone interview for 45min. The guy directly jumped into the resume with lots of technical questions. I'm in heat transfer and fluid areas so some general theory questions like: What is Reynolds number? What's the physical meaning of Reynolds number? How do you describe Reynolds number to someone with no fluid mechanics background. For heat transfer it was heat conduction equation, like what material properties do you need to solve a steady-state heat conduction equation? What if it is not a steady-state process?

    Interview Questions

    • Purely technical questions based on the resume.
      Nothing general.

    Firmware Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tesla.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter on LinkedIn. After initial chat, was sent a test to do online. The test was really well written, and was a lot of fun to solve. Following that, the recruiter scheduled two technical interviews spaced over 2-3 days. The interviews were standard coding challenges. Nothing specific to firmware really. Recruiter had the courtesy to let me know that I was rejected, including what I did well and where I was expected to have dome better.
