Also, it has been said that Tesla will do considerable training. Also, if you thought Toyota brought in people from across the country to apply for jobs, the Tesla application process will be insane.
Fair enough, but I see a factory of this caliber needing a lot of highly qualified technical/engineering personnel. Tesla's preference will probably be a place (like Dallas or Austin) that already has a large qualified labor pool. Companies (Like Rackspace) seem to continually cite the difficulty of attracting talent to San Antonio as one of the negatives of doing business here. That said, it looks like San Antonio is definitely a contender for this (otherwise those two executives would not have made the trip here). Hopefully we'll hear some more good news soon, but I'm not holding my breath.
