Tesla readies production boost, flags return to hiring mode
Tesla is poised to increase production at its California car plant and is back in hiring mode, according to an internal email sent days after the company wrapped up a record quarter of deliveries.
The electric-car maker is “making preparations” to raise output at its factory in Fremont, Jerome Guillen, Tesla’s automotive president, wrote Tuesday to employees: «While we can’t be too specific in this email, I know you will be delighted with the upcoming developments»
After several rounds of job cuts announced by Ceo Elon Musk over the past year, Guillen also told employees that Tesla is hiring: «As we continue to ramp up production, please tell your friends and neighbors that we have lots of exciting new positions open, both in Fremont and at Giga” he wrote, referring to the company’s battery factory near Reno in Nevada.
Guillen ended his newsletter with a reminder to employees that they should refrain from leaking internal communications to the public. «Do not share company information through email, Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. Leave that to Elon. Once that information is public, feel free [to] retweet your heart out, share on IG or FB» he wrote.
