Former Mechanical Engineer, Energy Products at Tesla

There's no fixed working hours so you would get to work whenever. There's free Cereal, Coffee, OJ and all the breakfast stuff in the cafe. Once you're settled in, you dive straight in to work. You'll be assigned project/s (yes, multiple and yes, at the same time) at the begining of your internship and you'll just be working through it day after day to get it done. Usually, there'll be a lot of learning/research to do and there will be deadlines. Sometimes, you might be asked to assist another senior engineer with emergency firefighting type situations. You'll be a part of your projects daily stand-ups. All in all, you'll be working in an ultra fast paced work environment (the kind where your manager would want things to be done yesterday) and your schedule will be packed. Be ready for a roller coaster ride!
