    The most horrifying thing about Tesla is buried in this already horrifying article:

    The employee training the company offers is “woefully inadequate,” Reveal reported in its investigation. Turley told me she was never taught how to do her job and only shown videos that included a history of the plant and information about Tesla, but nothing about the work she would be doing. “You pretty much have to learn from the people that’s in there,” she said. Cleon Waters also said in his filing that he was never given any training for his job assembling parts of car motors. California safety regulators cited Tesla eight times for deficient training between 2013 and 2018.

    Teslas are being built by people with no training. Never get in one.

      And yet CA still let’s them make 2-ton death machines even though their employees are mostly untrained.

        Manual developers, training coordinators and anything even remotely resembling onboarding is so DIY nowadays. Either the new hire is literally day in front of a computer and made to read SOP after SOP or the person stuck with that day of orientation DIYd their slides and it’s not even remotely coherent let alone contiguous/consistent with any other material.

        Is all overhead.
