Pre-employment assessment at Tesla

Pre-employment assessment at Tesla

Hey guys I don’t know if this is the right place to post, but I’m really worried. I applied for production associate/material handler at the Fremont Tesla factory almost a month ago. I passed all the interviews and the drug test. I did my Physical assessment almost two weeks ago and as far as I know, I passed everything. Tesla said they would contacting me after my physical results are cleared in 1-2 weeks. It’s been almost 2 weeks now and I haven’t recieved any email or phone call. I emailed one of the recruiters yesterday and I’ve gotten no response. I’m really worried and I feel like I might’ve been ghosted. Am I overreacting? Or should I just wait for any word back.

Are you sure you want to work where they've laid off 9% of workers last year, and now 7% more?

Someone who does not have the confidence that he/she will be top 90% of the entire workforce should not go work there.

I’m guessing the majority of people who use this form never applied for a job at Tesla, so it’s probably not the best place to ask.

I hope you didn't write the word "received" in any part of your resume or application.

@dtodd, are you casting a spell on OP's writing skill? ;-)

Also with the latest changes, new hires may have been put on hold. Worse, it's possible the person at Tesla you were working with could have been laid off. Other than waiting perhaps another week or two, l'm not sure there is much more you can do. Good luck and I hope it works out for you.

You assume that the layoffs are based upon merit? They could fire the most junior staff, or they could get rid of the most expensive staff. There are lots of ways to downsize that have nothing to do with whether or not the OP has confidence in their ability to be in the top 90% of the workforce.
