And suggests in 2021, Tesla received 100 applications per job opening. This is an incredible advantage for Tesla and the EV maker has its CEO, Elon Musk to thank. Musk, unlike most company founders, is less motivated by financial reward but more by solving fundamental societal problems that will positively affect humanity at large. So, what do you think? Surprised Tesla received 3 million applications to work at the EV maker in a single year? Also, if Elon Musk wasn’t in, do you think Tesla could maintain this much interest?
In the last few days, a Tesla owner posted a funny video of sentry mode on Reddit, the video shows a bear walking up to a parked car’s door, rising itself up, standing almost straight to peek inside and then trying to see if it was unlocked, then the bear probably realized it’s been locked, after that the bear just left leisurely. Then the owner added below that bears are actually incredibly smart and will test door handles to see if they are unlocked, he thought there was probably food in that car, or at least a curious smell. INSIDEEVs also commented who would have thought you can use your Tesla as a mobile wildlife monitoring station. Have you ever recorded funny moment with your Tesla sentry mode?
