Tesla China cancels three hiring events in June, hinting at overstaffed areas

Tesla China has canceled three online hiring events scheduled for June. Cancellations indicate which areas Elon Musk called overstaffed.

On Thursday, June 9, Tesla China held an online hiring event, looking for workers to fill “smart manufacturing” jobs. Positions included managers and employees who would run Giga Shanghai’s 6,000-ton Giga press for Model Y front and rear underbody castings.

The recent online hiring event left the media puzzled, as Elon Musk had previously said some areas of the company were overstaffed. However, with the cancellation of three online recruiting events, it is clear which areas have become overstaffed.

Tesla China has canceled online hiring events scheduled for June 16, 23 and 30, according to messages on WeChat sent late Thursday. The recruitment event was supposed to hire workers for Giga Shanghai’s sales, R&D and supply chain, reported Bloomberg.

The canceled hiring events suggest that Giga Shanghai is trying hard to fill manufacturing jobs, which makes sense. It aims to produce 71,000 vehicles in June. The factory wants to regain momentum before the COVID-19 outbreak in Shanghai.

Additionally, Tesla last month announced plans to double production capacity at Giga Shanghai by adding a new building to the site. Tesla China wants to produce 450,000 additional vehicles per year with the new factory.

Giga Shanghai looks set to get its groove back, given recent developments. Tesla has already started taking Model Y orders in Australia, Japan, New Zealand and Singapore, hinting that Tesla China production is back up and running.

Workers will be allowed to return home after sleeping in the factory and other makeshift accommodation under the city’s closed-loop system. Tesla China factory workers will be allowed to return home on Friday, June 10, at the end of their shift.
