    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Tesla (San Jose, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    A very nice recruiter contacted me through LinkedIn then requested a phone interview. During the phone a few questions were asked (overall was just trying to get to know me). Then asked what locations or store floors I would like to work in. At the end of the call the recruiter asked that I email my resume and and cover letter. After this I did not receive a response, neither to offer nor say hey we've moved forward with someone else. Overall the experience was positive.

    Interview Questions

    • I feel the interviewer ask questions based on my work history. So it's hard to judge or put out the type of questions they ask because it's always based on your particular background.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Tesla in December 2009.

    Interview

    I spoke with 8 different people from different departments within the Sales and Marketing division and had 3 formal meetings. In almost all communications, I was told that the work would be very challenging, difficult with grueling hours. That was an understatement. I think Tesla is great, but you have to really have a passion. There are much easier jobs out there but few quite as fulfilling.

    Negotiation

    I was unable to negotiate and have later learned that those that do almost always get passed on for someone else.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tesla.

    Interview

    The process was really very messy and unclear. I felt like they didn't really know what they were doing nor know what kind of candidate they were looking for. They weren't good with giving feedback either.

    First interview was fairly straightforward. I talked with a university recruiter on the phone. Talked about experiences on your resume and your work ethic. Emphasized hands-on experience. We discussed the work culture and what is expected of Tesla interns.

      First interview was fairly straightforward. I talked with a university recruiter on the phone. Talked about experiences on your resume and your work ethic. Emphasized hands-on experience. We discussed the work culture and what is expected of Tesla interns. Afterwards, she asked about what interested me the most so she can fit me into a group. She contacted one of her partners to find a best fit for me and that is where I am at right now. Will post an update as the process goes along.   Answer Question
