    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Tesla (Fremont, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Large group of applicants brought in to test basic measurement skill and attention to direction. Then each applicant interviewed by one of a group of recruiters. If the applicant was then asked to remain at the facility in the lobby they were then interviewed by second recruiter and we're likely hired pending a backgroynd check. The job offer came about 2 weeks later.

    Interview

    Awful experience. After phone a phone interview I was scheduled to meet in shop. This was the first issue. The recruiter never said when, he just said he'd call me back. Well a week goes by and i get an email saying I'm scheduled for the NEXT DAY! Well guess what, i already had another interview. So to be accommodating i try to make it work, well bad move. Road work caused me to be late, which obviously sets me up for a horrible first impression. I know i'm ultimately responsible, i just wish i knew when the interview was being scheduled so i could've gave myself more than enough time.

    As for the interview, well it was maybe the worst ever. I was in this room the size of a closet with 3 other people with laptops on their laps. They all seemed to ask the same 10 questions 5 different ways. They really didn't seem interested either. It was all around an awful experience.

    online application, then call from a recruiter months later. I've been frustrated with getting hired by this company for years because I don't know what they require to be hired.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Tesla (Costa Mesa, CA) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Ridiculously long process multiple phone screens, multiple in person interviews concluded with a 3 person panel interview by seemingly uninterested managers. Multiple recruiters responsible for sending emails and interview confirmations makes communication aggravating. Throughout my process I met and interviewed with 5 different managers across 3 departments, all the same with the exception of two who were far more down to earth and less egotistical. Little to know interest in my background or skills attained through my previous careers, all 3 interviewers displayed cynical expressions at times during my responses to questions. My perception was they couldn't appreciate that I could relate to what they called "challenges" for their respected departments. They pushed the start up mentality and the challenges that come with that but didn't seem to care that my last occupation was with a fast growing start up. Overall this leaves me with some disdain for Tesla, all my interactions with employees via phone or in person at Tesla locations everyone comes across very average but managers will tell you otherwise. During my tour of a service center I saw technicians eating donuts while working on cars, service concierge conversing in groups huddled around cell phones and service advisors scrolling the internet between customers who are more than willing to point you in the right direction and never leave their chair.
