It ranges widely from what you do and if you travel. I would say on average it is about 10 hours a day 5 days a week.

Depends on the position your applying for.

Most of the production related jobs are 12 hour shifts at a minimum of 4 days. The supervisors and above will "persuade" you to work 5-6 days instead. If you actually want to work those kind of days and hours management is more than happy for you and the amount of overtime you can get is ridiculous from what I hear so you get real fat checks at the end of all those hours. However, with that many hour put in you may feel like you have no life or you social life may suffer terribly. During one of my job interviews with Tesla the supervisor that interviewed me told me that he had a few days where he had to work 20 hours.

Report answer

The working hours are long. In my team (autopilot), the expectation was to be at the office every day from 9 to 6:30. In addition, engineers were expected to be driving engineering vehicles during the week-end and filing bug reports.
