There's a reason they keep getting sued for discirmination

2.0
Production Associate (Denied promotions due to gender) - Sparks, NV - June 30, 2022
If you're not male, white or Indian (from India), lacking any physical disabilities, or not heterosexual, don't work here. I have a 15 page report documenting all sorts of discrimination that I can send to anyone who wants it. Tesla fired me because apparently I'm a jerk for thinking my qualifications should matter more than my gender, or that people of color shouldn't be harassed, or that trans people should be respected. They will even dismiss faulty robots that can cause injury or have caused injury if your demographic is not acceptable enough to report a problem.

Sparks, NV - June 12, 2022
Intriguing to learn how the engine is made. The first few months is learning. My shift was the Wednesday/Thursday to Sunday 6pm-6am It became boring and standing that amount time in the same spot is painful. My prior careers required 12-15 hour shifts but I was constantly moving. My manager was a young man and in my opinion wasn’t a knowledgeable nor attentive manager.

Inventory specialist - Lathrop, CA - December 22, 2021
I started off as a material handler back in 2017 in receiving department . I was promoted to invenory specialist one year later. The position is a combination of knowing inbound receiving and outbound shipping and picking parts.I did not recieve a pay increase only a title change. They terminated and recycled the supervisors and manager who would give you a pay increase. As i started with the first group of ten individuals when this site opened in lathrop I was denied lead and supervisor positions once the company expanded and reached over 1000 employees for the lathrop location. Instead they choose to pick their leader from individuals with no experience or know nothing of inbound or picking parts at tesla. Everyone from that group of ten eventually resiegned including myself. If you dont mind training new employees or tesla employees from different city locations on how to be your boss then this job is for you.
