I have not worked for Tesla yet, but came here to see what people had to say. After reading the comments, please understand that long hours are standard in the automotive industry. I’ve rarely worked less than five 11’s in the six years I’ve been an ASM for Honda, Toyota twice and Mercedes Benz. Yes compared to other careers, this is a lot, but it’s every service department, in every dealership in America’s working hours.

For sales reps low base Salary w lower then market commissions required to work 6 days per week and be available 8:00am to 8:00pm plus manage projects do day off is spent working as well
This has created a culture of fatigued people which lends to a poor customer experience

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.
