Many of Tesla’s high-ranking staff recruited by Apple: Elon Musk
Elon musk, CEO of California-based Tesla motors and SpaceX has called Apple the ‘Tesla graveyard’, asserting that the former Tesla employees who couldn't make it at his company have switched to Apple.
Many of Tesla’s high-ranking staff was recruited by Apple, Musk added in the interview with Germany's Handelsblatt newspaper.
Tesla’s head also talked amusingly about the Apple Watch and the company's ambitions at creating an electric car. He said that Apple is moving towards creating electric cars, but making them is a very complicated compared to phones or smartwatches. The invention of an electric car is the next logical thing for Apple, Musk mentioned.
According to reports in September, Apple has 'committed' to make its own car with the name 'Project Titan'. The car could possibly be released in early 2019 and it would compete with Tesla's cars in the electric car market.
Musk proudly reported in a 2012 interview with Autoblog that his employees are expected to work for long and difficult hours.
Tesla’s head asserted, “If you work for Tesla, the minimum is really a 50-hour week and there are times when it'll be 60-to-80 hour weeks”.
Apple has been previously accused of trying to poach Tesla’s staff, said Musk in a February interview with Bloomberg Businessweek. He added, even though Apple had been offering Tesla staff $250,000 signing bonuses and 60% salary increases, they have recruited only few people so far.
