Great company with awesome benefits but horrible management
Production Associate (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – August 18, 2017
Tesla is a great place to work if you dont mind dealing with management. Its has improved over the years but still has a long way to go. Depending where you go you might have a great team or a team that does not feel like a team. Some managers act like dictators & you have to agree with them or it could have negative consequences.

Obviously, this is one of the most cutting edge companies out there. I love the overall vision of the company. There are a lot of challenges that haven't been ironed out yet as this large company acts like a start up in many surprising ways. Overall the company is great, just be ready to roll with the punches as processes are tweaked and adjusted.
Material Planner (Current Employee) – Fremont, CA – August 13, 2017
Tesla is a very chaotic environment. Management is weak and does not support your goals or ambitions with career growth. In this role, you are on call 24/7 and the job is very demanding at 15+ hours per day. Would not recommend if you want a life and growth opportunity.
Regional Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Portland, OR – August 11, 2017
I work in the newly acquired solar division and let me tell you, DON'T get panels from solarcity or Tesla. Poor quality, poor upper level management. The only person who cares is the Portland install manager and he is constantly having his job threatened. Don't work here

I loved it, I loved the job and I loved the atmosphere. It was like getting to go to college... It had its challenges as far as the work because sometimes it wasnt easy to navigate different situations that would come up. So basically, like any job, it had its ups and downs.
free snacks and cereal and drinks and pretty good pay, opportunities for advancement

my area atleast we still working 12 hours a day no weekends atleast unless its pre scheduled management is slowly getting better pay is alright when you start to level up (level up depends on management if they like you or not) good benefits receives stocks every 7-9 months
Forklift Driver (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – August 6, 2017
A typical day would start of with a meeting in the break room and seeing what bays we would be placed in for the day and do safety checks on the equipment and surrounding areas. The most important thing they teach you is safety you only get a few mistakes or they will pull you off the line or by your working in. Managing the work week would inquire 6 days of 12 hour work it was hard at first but easy as time went on, there wasn't any major hard things on the job other than being aware of your surroundings and not making any mistakes other than that they had the best food and employees you can ask for, everyone is super respectful and really was a nice job.
PRODUCTION QUALITY INSPECTOR 111 (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – August 5, 2017
Everyday most likely different. I'm working in production as quality control so sometime I can see things that is not in my checklist. Working at my previous company help me grow as a person and intellectually we had monthly training and reviews on our job description. For me its not hard but challenging we have to talk to Production Eng. regarding our concern and help or talk to production people their lapses in quality. I enjoy working with my previous job in because I like to be with people and challenge myself that I can also do what production line is doing and exchange ideas and opinions.
Quality Control Specialist (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – August 2, 2017
Company made me resign as I was out for 4 days due to illness (under doctors orders and I had a medical note). What type of company treats employees with suck disregard? I worked there for 2 months and was promoted 2 twice, until my illness, then your gone. Worked 6 days a week, with 1 day off.
Production Lead (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – August 2, 2017
Company wants to make a positive impact on the environment. The product is beautiful. The work is fast paced and physically demanding with long hours. The starting pay is fair but the structure of leveling up, raises and promotions needs to be better implemented. The management teams need to be more in touch with their groups/associates. The majority of the associates work well together.
Decent Benefit package
Long hours, physically demanding, weak policy structure
