    Customer Experience Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Walnut Creek, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tesla (Walnut Creek, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    This was easily the best experience I've had interviewing for a company. I'm used to a process that's is months long, with no transparency as far as when you'll be hearing back about next steps, and no indication of what your status is. Tesla was just the opposite. About 2 weeks after I applied, I got an email from the recruiter inviting me to schedule a phone interview for the same week. The interview went well, and she was clear about job expectations and expected salary. At the end of the interview, she said that I would receive an email early the next week to schedule an in-person interview at the Tesla showroom, which would be my final interview. I got the email in the time that she said, and once again scheduled an interview for the same week with the store's manager and assistant manager. At the end of my in person interview, the two interviewers said that they would speak with the recruiter about their thoughts and let me know soon. The following Monday, I got an email from the recruiter initiating a background check, and scheduling a final call later in the week. I was offered the job during the final phone call.
