Tesla is looking for workers for its Buffalo factory
Tesla Inc. is moving forward in its efforts to find workers for its Buffalo solar panel factory as it starts installing its new solar roof on customer homes.
The company, which said it started making its new solar roofing tiles in Buffalo at the end of last year, is holding five information sessions over the next month to seek out potential workers for its portion of the South Park Avenue factory.
The information sessions are the most extensive in-person recruitment efforts that Tesla has made since it acquired SolarCity in November 2016, although the company has had more than two dozen different jobs posted online for more than a year.
Tesla currently has 34 different types of jobs posted on its website, ranging from managers and engineers to production assistants. Tesla, like its partner, Panasonic, is setting pay at $14 an hour for entry-level production jobs. ( I think I might reconsider... nevermind lol)
The information sessions will be held:
April 12 at 1 p.m. at the Sheridan Parkside Community Building, 169 Sheridan Parkside, Town of Tonawanda
April 17 at 10 a.m. at the Belle Center, 103 Maryland St.
April 24 at 1 p.m. at the Erie Community College downtown campus, Room 420, 21 Ellicott St.
April 26 at 10 a.m. at the Delavan Grider Community Center, 877 E. Delavan Ave.
May 4 at 10 a.m. at the Valley Community Center, 93 Leddy St.
