It is understood that the recruitment meeting interview size of about 500 people. Although I do not know the specific number of people hired by Tesla, but the fierce degree of competition is comparable to the public service examination. At present, the interviewees have received oral employment notices one after another, and Tesla asked these employees to be hired orally "as much as KuaiBao to the better."

This recruitment, Tesla did not set up a re-examination link, after the interview within a week notice, July 29 will begin training. This means that Tesla's recruitment of front-line staff, as soon as July.

In July 2018, Tesla announced an agreement with the Shanghai government to build a wholly owned local factory. And Tesla acquired 210 acres of Gigafactory 3 land in China. In January 2019, Tesla held a grand groundbreaking ceremony, marking the official start of the construction of Tesla's Shanghai super factory, which is scheduled to be completed this summer.

Recently, it has been reported that Tesla is setting up a Gigafactory 3 electric vehicle factory in Shanghai at an astonishing speed. The building is almost completed and production equipment is currently being installed. Gigafactory 3 is Tesla's first manufacturing plant in China and the first wholly foreign-owned electric vehicle factory in China. Tesla has been rapidly preparing for Gigafactory 3.

At a series of provincial (regional and municipal) press conferences held by the Information Office of the State Council on July 2, Ma Chunlei, deputy secretary general of the Shanghai government and director of the Development and Reform Commission, also said that the Tesla Shanghai super factory will be put into production by the end of this year.

Ma Chunlei said that the Tesla super factory project has invested 14 billion yuan in the first phase and has reached production capacity of 150000 Model3 pure electric new energy passenger cars. The factory's production capacity will gradually climb to a production capacity of about 3, 000 vehicles a week. It is expected that by the end of this year and early next year, you may see or buy Tesla Model3's new energy vehicles made in Shanghai, China. In the future, the Shanghai plant will produce entry-level Model 3 and Model Y for Greater China, with a first phase scale of 250000 vehicles per year and a total production capacity of 500000 vehicles per year. Domestic Tesla industry chain is expected to continue to benefit.

It is reported that at present, the construction progress of the Tesla Shanghai factory has exceeded conventional expectations, and will have the ability to get off the line by the end of this year.

With the unexpected construction of the Tesla Shanghai plant and the confidence that the plant will be put into production by the end of the year, Tesla's tight supply situation will ease after the Shanghai plant goes into production, coupled with the efficient output of the Chinese factory. Tesla is expected to do well in the Chinese market.
