Tesla has continued its online recruiting plans in China and announced more, although Tesla CEO Elon Musk said last week that he would reduce employment at Tesla because some departments had too many employees.
Tesla plans to provide jobs online today to recruit staff for the department “Smart Manufacturing”.
In China, there are 224 openings for managers and engineers in the intelligent manufacturing department to oversee the operation of a 6,000-ton die casting machine called the Giga Press.
Tesla’s revenue in China more than doubled in 2021 from 2020, accounting for 25% of Tesla’s total revenue.
Tesla’s Shanghai factory, which makes the Model 3 and Model Y for domestic sales and exports, produced more than half of all cars last year, and Tesla plans to expand the factory.
However, production at the factories was severely affected by the two-month coronavirus lockdown in Shanghai, which led to a production standstill.
Tesla previously planned to increase factory production to 22,000 vehicles a week by mid-May.
Last Friday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that he is concerned about the outlook for global economic growth and plans to reduce Tesla’s workforce by 10%.
