July 24 (UPI) — Electric car maker Tesla is in good shape, delivering more than 90,000 electric vehicles to consumers in the second quarter, earning more than $6 billion, for the fourth consecutive quarter of earnings, after more than a month of shutdowns at its Fremont plant, according tomedia reports.
The results are on the rise, as Tesla’s plants are expanding, with their Superplants in Shanghai starting large-scale construction this year and Berlin’s super plants starting this year, with model Y, both of which are scheduled to begin delivery next year.
Tesla also has more demand for employees as the plant expands, and a vice president at the second-quarter earnings question-and-answer session revealed that they need more staff.
Drew Baglino, Tesla’s vice president of power systems and energy engineering, told the conference that they need more, but they can’t find enough.
Baglino also said at the meeting that Tesla could offer them a job for people interested in designing new production lines and interested in trying different things, and that Tesla now has jobs in many places.
When it comes to hiring new employees, Tesla CEO Musk has previously said that education is not a factor in their past decision sorority to hire, a view he still stands by.
