Tesla sellers say morality has fallen drastically when stores close

Tesla shocked employees last week when it was announced that it would switch to an online-only sales model and close "many" of its stores. A salesman, away from his assigned store in California at that time, later discovered that night after reading news reports about the plan. "Every time there are layoffs, we are notified of that fact," the employee told, on condition of anonymity, Business Insider. "It's a blow to the face. We should have been notified first, we are the ones who build the empire.

Tesla shocked employees last week when it was announced that it would switch to an online-only sales model and close “many” of its stores.

A salesman, away from his assigned store in California at that time, later discovered that night after reading news reports about the plan.

“Every time there are layoffs, we are notified of that fact,” the employee told, on condition of anonymity, Business Insider. “It’s a blow to the face. We should have been notified first, we are the ones who build the empire.

It is just one example that Tesla’s employees are exposed to concern, many of whom say that they have been left in the dark for major business decisions that affect their ability to sell cars and energy systems.

Tesla advisers, whom the company calls its sellers, were taken by separate energy and car focused last year amidst the company’s efforts for to give profit in the third and fourth quarter. Former energy vendors told Business Insider that bonuses drastically changed last year so that individual bonuses were linked to team performance in the stores.

“It’s empty here right now,” another employee, assuming anonymity, said about his assigned store. “This is usually a positive place to work, but now it feels like a morning.”

“You can try driving a car for seven days, but sun is a full blown construction project,” the worker said.

But even car salesmen say they are still necessary for Tesla to continue to grow.

“Electric cars are for new of a concept not to have a sales force,” said a previous customer experience specialist, who left this week. “The worst feeling was to open a store and three months later closed the doors. I’ve never been divorced, but that’s probably the best way to describe what I felt like happening.”

Overall, workers love working for Tesla, even frustrated workers are quick to say.

“We really worked very hard because we did it for something above us,” said a current salesman. “We did it for Tesla and for the mission.”

Workers are not only invested morally in Tesla’s mission – some have moved thousands of miles to Tesla’s job – but also financially. Large fractions of many employees’ wages are in the form of restricted shares, which are shares that are given to employees on a predetermined earning plan. The final value of the shares depends on the price at which the company’s share trading is at the due date.

“You have people who work with their one —- in jobs that they were not even employed to do,” said the worker about salesmen who came in to deliver cars to customers last year. “And Tesla doesn’t give one’s —.”

Tesla refused to comment.
