From July 2021, around 7,000 to 8,000 people are to work in a three-shift system at Tesla in Grünheide near Berlin. By 2022, it should be 12,000 people, said Jochem Freyer, head of the employment agency in Frankfurt (Oder), the Berliner Zeitung. The agencies and job centres in Berlin and Brandenburg researched suitable job seekers and worked well with Tesla. In addition to specialists and managers, they were also looking for career changers and clerical staff.

The pay in the lower wage groups is good, said Freyer. Tesla offered 2,700 euros gross as a starting wage, including a shift bonus in the lowest pay level. This applies to unskilled or semi-skilled workers. For people with completed vocational training, the starting salary would start at about 3,500 euros. However, willingness to work shifts and Saturdays is required

For engineers, a university degree is required, for employees in the simple segment Tesla degrees are less important than recruitment or work experience. Managers do not need to speak Polish. However, production employees must be fluent in German, and managers must also speak English. Previous reports have stated that Tesla primarily targets Polish workers and managers must therefore be able to speak Polish.
