Internship Interview Timeline @Tesla

Nov 7 11 Comments

Hello Tesla folks! Just out of curiosity, for Spring internship roles....
1)What is the general interview timeline? (Like when did you got to know that you have a confirmed interview Or when does the team reach out....Oct/Nov/Dec)
2) How many interviews do we have to go through both technical and non-technical?
3) Did you had any specific strategies or plans in securing interview?
4) What kind of personality attributes are they looking for especially in interns?

I am currently interested to work with electronics system and aero/thermal teams and would like to know your thoughts about the hiring process.

    I passed my resume to a famous tesla recruiter on Linkedin and she organized a phone interview with a hiring manager within a week in October of last year. Phone interview was very casual and the guy seemed disinterested, asked me a couple of questions about my CV thats it. I was offered the position the next day of phone interview. I dont think they fly u out for internships. (maybe atleast my department materials/quality)

      Hey! I was looking into Tesla internships, and I'm also interested in materials/quality. Would you by any chance be able to tell me who this recruiter was? Also, it was really only one phone interview to get your offer?

      @EV-Intern to clarify, a week max after getting initial interview. Hearing a response (if any) after initially submitting can be a while

      I see that! I believe it depends on the teams priority to fill the interns, i guess! But yet again thanks for the update!
