Internship Interview Timeline @Tesla

Nov 7, 2019 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!
