It's just like every article in the news. They get tons of applicants and they handpick their teammates. Not like any other dealership experience. Lots to learn and lots of support.It's really up to you on how the experience will be. Need to be open to changes and adapt quickly.
Clean environment, benefits, stock, culture, team environment, tools provided, lots of space, the mission is clear
Parking on site. Very minimal stuff. Nothing really to complain about.
I had an interview there last mouth and it took them 3 weeks to tell me I'm not qualified to wash a car even tho I work there before it was a temporary job. With all honesty the guys who interview me were very respectful and professional and I was very nervous and didn't live up to my expectations to answer the questions very well. I have anxiety and depression and very bad mood swings. I tried my best to remind calm but oh well
Do you enjoy working at your company?
Every work experience is unique. Tell us about yours. Rate your employer.
Tesla is a product that I believe in 100%. Going green/electric is the future and Tesla does it the best. Unfortunately the company doesnt know how to cherish their hard working staff. During my year at Tesla I witnessed 3 Major layoffs. That wasn't great for the morale of the remaining employees. The DGM that I worked for was cold and not personable. The managers were cryptic and erratic.
Good benefits, good commission
Massive Layoffs, clique like environment.
It can get stressful with the constant changes but with a good team and an even better Manager, you can definitely get through it. Everyone is always hands on with helping and you are never fully alone.....BUT YOU MUST BE READY TO WORK!!!! You are on that Sales floor like Soldiers on the front lines! Sometimes its even hard to take a break. Make sure if you apply that you have a sales mentality, "Go hard or go home" attitude and most importantly.....YOU BELIEVE IN THE VISION!!! If you have these things, you may even enjoy the work.
too much to count
better vehicular deals for emploees
The company did a great job of paving the way for other companies in the solar industry however, was not perfect. Kind of a moot point now though, as SolarCity no longer exists.
Wide Range of Service and Sustainable Alternatives

Jobs at Tesla
I joined Tesla 2 years ago. Its very cool being apart of the electric car movement! To start off with the management at Tesla across the board is terrible. They are not from the automotive industry and they do not know how the industry operate. The cars break way to much for a car that is promised to not need service as much as an ICE vehicle. They do not care about the employees whatsoever. The service center moral is always low and depressing. I'm still with the company so I'm an a disgruntled employee. I speak for all Tesla employees. Tesla treat there all employees like slaves. They make all employee work open to close if management fails. There is no structure at this company. Tesla is an automotive manufacture with a tech industry mind set which does not work. Tesla builds vehicles that people need to depend on to get them to and from work, home and destinations safely. These cars break down way to much. I do not recommend working for this company!!
I worked here for 3.5 years. I was walked all over by the carpet jockeys in the office as in you aren't rewarded for working hard and submitting to their standards. Work here if you like a cut throat management and no job security. They promote people that kiss a55 before hard workers. I had a horrible experience working here.
Cheap health insurance
Less than 40 hours of work a week
The organizational goals are great and quality of product was top notch - the work day was full of movement and interaction - however, since it was customer facing and commission based, it's easy to get worn out.
Mission, Product, Culture
Organizational Structure, Fluctuating Sales Tactics
I could never relax, I was always worried about not making my monthly quotas. They are not forgiving of market slumps. It was a roller coaster. Fun while it lasted, but definitely not a sustainable work/life balance. The people who thrived in this position were single and no responsibilities outside of work.
Too much was required of me when I was not clocked in. Hi-stress with quotas and deadlines. Base pay is better than fair (considering similar positions) - with commission bonus the sales/lead generation positions could pay well. If you are a go getter you can advance here but you will need to make good relationships with higher up's 1st.
elon musk, brand, pay, growth potential
stressful deadlines & quotas, poor communication, constant changes
It is a sales environment that is extremely micro managed, to the point it's makes customers uncomfortable, because of the aggressive nature of the mandated sales process.
Better products in pipeline that are advertised however not available.
It's a very rewarding job with great people and great management. It has opportunities for everyone in an enormous company that's now owned by Tesla. From operations, design, logistics, to graphics, and IT, there's a role for everyone. Though safety requirements conflict with company incentive bonus programs, the company is diligent about ensuring worker safety in the field. On the sales side, the company works to both encourage our numbers at the same time as making sure we're happy with our jobs. Sales is tough because there's so much objection and rejection during each day but the rewards are fulfilling.
