    Does anyone know if Tesla factory (production) is working 5, 6, or 7 days a week? Does anyone know how many hours per day production line is in operation?

    Wouldn't you need 4 shifts to run 24/7? There are 168 hours in a week. More than 40 hours a week and you have to pay overtime.

    I think shifts typically speak towards the number in the day. Example: Day, Swing, Night.

    Unless there are shut down times for maintenance or catch-up?

    The three shifts are 8 hours each. Day, evening, night. 7 days per week

    The concept is you have 3, eight hour shifts per day, seven days a week. To achieve that you would have four (or more) work groups working 35 - 40 hours each, during that period. Line workers will be working 5 days a week but some of those 5 days might be Sat/Sun. I owned retail stores that were open 10 hours a day, 6 days a week, but my employees worked 40 hours, 5 days a week. There were overlapping shifts. However, I worked >72 hours per week sometimes.........even slept at the stores when called for! ;)
