    Very strangely worded first post, heartsme. I'm fairly sure you're the only person to make that statement. Also, if you look on any job posting forums, there are hundreds of job posting for Tesla, many of which have been posted recently.

    No.

    Tesla just doubled in size last year

    (ps - over 1000 jobs available at Tesla and their factory parking lot is full)

    Is it true that any thread whose title begins with "Is it true that..." (or "Is that true...") is akin to a very large sign on one's back saying "Hit Me?"

    If you read it from a post on TMC - why not respond to that post in the thread that it was already in instead of making a new thread that confuses people because we don't know what post you're referring to?

    I know people that were hired in the last couple of weeks, so clearly there is no blanket hiring freeze.

    That said, they just had a quarterly report where they didn't hit their numbers, and they have a lot of growth to manage. It is entirely possible that there are/were temporary hiring freezes in some areas. Not uncommon in a rapidly growing company.

    Yes, I just replied on its original thread. I don't know if it is an insider's information.

    He did - see How Tesla lost a brand advocate through poor recruiting practices - Page 6
    And yes, that statement was posted in that thread and the original poster repeated it a few times, claiming inside sources

    /D

    "evidence" might be a bit strong of a term here.
    You found one poster making this statement in a different thread. And when he was pushed to give more evidence he stated:

    I wouldn't call that evidence.

    Ordinarily I would merge this back into the original thread, but it's off topic for that thread, so... I'll just leave it here with a request not to post the same question in multiple threads.
