Working for Tesla there is a motto...
Vehicle Technician (Former Employee) – Toronto, On – 25 October 2015
That motto is T E S L A, Takes Every Single Love Affair.
The hours are very long, the pay is very low for a company that is touted as a premium brand and there is no such thing as a work life balance. The mandate for a technician is that every vehicle must be back on the road within a 24 hour time period. Tesla has a metric measuring one day turnaround. This is great for the customer. Terrible for a shop, what if parts supply falls short, what if tools break, what if my shift ends. Tesla doesn't like people working overtime because it raises overhead. This applies to raises as well, a one percent raise is not even cost of living increase. Giving shares that require 4 years of vesting is given. However that is taken away from you if you quit or are let go as they haven't vested yet, regardless of the fact that those were your bonus.
Amazing people to work with in the shop
