Former Meta Intern Claims Tesla Revoked Her “Full-Time Offer” 72 Hours Before Joining

Tesla began downsizing its workforce last month.

A former Meta intern recently claimed that her “full-time offer” at Elon Musk-led automaker Tesla was canceled just 72 hours before she was supposed to join the company. In a LinkedIn post, Carmen Lee said she received the offer from Tesla after being laid off by her previous employer and after spending three months applying and interviewing for new positions. She said she even turned down another offer and moved to a new state so she could join the systems design team at Tesla. However, Ms Lee claimed that just hours before she arrived at Elon Musk’s company, her offer was rescinded, leaving her “frustrated and heartbroken”.

“This afternoon my offer at Tesla was canceled 72 hours before my departure due to a company reorganization,” Carmen Lee wrote. “After being laid off from my previous employer in December, I spent three grueling months applying and interviewing for new positions. I even turned down another offer and moved to a new state in order to to be able to join the systems design team at Tesla,” she said.

Take a look at the post below:

“Frustrated and heartbroken can’t even describe how I feel, and I know I share the same feeling with anyone who has had the unfortunate experience of experiencing a layoff and/or rescinded offer, especially from Tesla over the of the last two weeks,” Ms. Lee wrote in her message.

In the following lines, Ms. Lee shared what the “first layoff” taught her. She even shared more about her qualifications and the type of job she’s looking for.

“That being said, I am once again looking for my next opportunity in product design or UX design. The first layoff I experienced taught me, more than anything, the power of resilience and community, and I’m still eager to find my next great experience, I would greatly appreciate any leads or referrals for opportunities in product design, UX design or design systems,” she said. writing.

In another similar case, a student, who was looking forward to joining Tesla as an intern, shared on LinkedIn that his internship offer was also abruptly retracted three weeks before he started working at Elon Musk’s company.

Joshua Schreiber, a student at the University of Miami, described his disillusionment after receiving an email from Tesla regarding flight arrangements, only to have his internship offer revoked less than three hours later. “Yes, it sucks, my start date was only 3 weeks away. Yes, it sucks, I spent thousands of dollars on housing. Yes, it sucks to go through this in college” , he wrote.

However, despite this setback, Mr. Schreiber expressed optimism and a willingness to explore other opportunities.
