Despite Layoffs, Tesla Is Hiring
Tesla made the news a few times this month and last month over the layoffs brought up in an email from Elon Musk. Tesla also submitted a WARN notice and laid off 229 Autopilot employees.
And Tesla’s head of AI, Andrej Karpathy recently announced that he was leaving after a sabbatical. Despite all of this, Tesla is hiring workers, especially for manufacturing.
Tesla Needs Manufacturing Workers
In my own interview with Elon Musk, he told me that manufacturing was underrated.
“In general, I think manufacturing is underrated. Manufacturing used to be really cool in the U.S. and then for some reason, I think, kind of uncool for quite a long time.”
“And a lot of talented people went in other directions. But I sure hope a lot more talented people get into manufacturing because that’s where you’re making the products that people use and enjoy.”
