    Supplier Industrialization Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Tesla.

    Interview

    Recruiter found me on LinkedIn. a few phone interviews and then onsite interview. They trip that was booked for me was horrible, just to keep it cheap I guess. On interview day the interview panel was not prepared at all. Some of them hadn't looked at my resume before hand and were asking me if I have a bachelor or not!! one of them was late and when he came in, he put a piece of paper in front of me and asked me to solve a question and when i did he said ok thanks and left the room!! Everything was so chaotic and unprofessional, I could not wait to get out of the interview
