Exciting! Met with a lot of great face of Tesla through the process. Met in the showroom, at a conference table in the back with the store manager. Also met with an OA. Super friendly!

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Tesla in February 2016.

    Interview

    Very short, and a bit unprofessional.

    I had a pleasant enough experience with the recruiter in California. When I reached the store manager in Texas via video chat it was clear from the first second she already had a decision in mind. The entire interview lasted less than 5 minutes, and thats only because I asked questions. She had a total of three questions for me before indicating she was finished with the interview.

    Based on my experience with the store leadership, I wouldn't have accepted a offer from Tesla (not that one was extended). The process left a sour taste in my mouth about Tesla in general.

    Interview with the store manager, fairly fun process. Manager was very nice and asked great questions. Very fun process and felt welcomed by everyone in the store. Went in to learn about the company first before the interview.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Tesla (Austin, TX) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The only way to get an interview is to go through a recruiter first and it helps to know someone. You will go through about 4 interviews which are very spaced out. Very slow process and doesn’t seem organized.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Tesla.

    Interview

    Simple process of speaking with the store manager and then, if approved, speaking with the Regional Sales Mgr. The store mgr was focused on sales experience and expertise about the products and specifically looking for a good personality fit with the rest of the team. The RSM was only concerned with which hours you were willing to work and whether you had retail experience.

    Negotiation

    there is no negotiation. Everyone in a given geography and role makes the same amount of base pay. The rest is up to you to perform.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Tesla in January 2016.

    Interview

    Very easy - one interview with the district manager regarding prior experience and overall contribution to prior firm. They hosted one more informal interview, then extended a job offer. The position is very high turnover and there is limited training which was not made clear at the start.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Tesla (New York, NY) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Arrived 15 minutes early only to wait until 10 min after to be seen late. My interview was slotted for a half an hour. The questions were simple but I was mislead. I was told that I would be interviewing with 2 not 3 people. Probably should've walked out when they were late but I figured I would give them a chance. My interview was abruptly cut short by 10 min and one interviewer in particular was rude and cold. You dont whisper behind someones back when they are still in ears range walking out. Super unprofessional and disturbing. Luckily I am coming in with a job, a great life and family. I shudder to think how someone down on their luck or dealing with a recent tragedy would have felt walking out. For shame. A total waste of my precious time.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Tesla in July 2018.

    Interview

    Typical phone interview to go over past experiences etc. once you are picked to move onto a second interview, you are sent an NDA, and a link to reserve a time for an on-site interview. I showed up early to the interview and it didn’t seem as though the manager was prepared to speak with me. They finally were ready 20 minutes after my initial meeting was supposed to start. After a few minutes in the second interview, I was told by the manager that I was speaking to that they were brand new and had no previous experience in the automotive industry. They also told me that they weren’t sure what they were even looking for in a candidate. We went over salary and commissions, which was WAY LOWER than market average for “Luxury” brands, despite my nearly 8 years of experience, including experience in Automotive and tech industries. I was cut off and ignored for most of the interview as the person interviewing me was reading from a notebook and not listening to what I was saying. Felt like this interview was a total waste of time. Got an email a couple days later that they were going a different direction. If you’re looking for a rewarding career, I’d look elsewhere.

Talked about work ethic. Was told I will be recommended for next steps and I excepted to move on to next steps. Very exciting.
