Tesla Motors and newly added Tesla Energy is a wonderful job. I enjoy working with a company that is both innovative, and community driven. The goal has been set and we all work hard to push the dream. To be part of the movement geared towards bettering our environment through technology is a big deal. Another great part about working with Tesla is that it appeals to so many people. Most think that Tesla is just cars but we do so much more. It opens the conversation to how they can be a part of the solution to better our world.

Tesla was a wonderful company to work for in today's world. They are truly changing the world, and as an employee, I was able to be a part of that! It is some of the hardest work you will ever do, but it is incredibly rewarding.
Currently a production lead. Days are long but the work schedule is nice, when you actually get the schedule you're supposed to. Mandatory overtime happens occasionally (my first few month working there were mandatory 60 hour weeks at minimum) but the pay is competitive and the benefits are swell. However, Giga 1 in NV is located along a very dangerous highway, with an extremely high death rate per capita. Sometimes you'll be stuck in traffic four hours because of an accident. Actually it's quite often.
