Tesla’s Gigafactory in Sparks, Nevada, isn’t a bad place to work in. For starters, the factory, which some people dub “Gigfactory 1,” is huge. Plus, you get to contribute to making the world a better place by building green batteries and cars. Well, if that sounds like your kind of job, then there might just be an opening for you.
Panasonic is hosting a hiring event on Wednesday, April 5, for people interested in working at the Gigafactory. It’ll be held at the Regional Public Safety Training Center, located at 5190 Spectrum Blvd. in Reno, from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
According to Panasonic, Tesla is looking to hire around 2,000 people to build batteries for its $35,000 Model 3 vehicle. Open positions include material handler, production operator, maintenance technician, and shift lead.
Tesla has slated the Model 3 to be in production by the middle of this year, and parts of it — including the batteries — will be manufactured in the Gigafactory. Apart from bringing in that many jobs, the Model 3 production will also pour an investment of about $350 million into the state of Nevada.
