I had fun learning about new models of cars and olds ones tol, but this job was pretty heavy for me.
Auto Alarm Installation (Former Employee) –  Bell Gardens, CAJanuary 10, 2018
This job is for somebody who loves working under the sun, long hours, and has parience with wiring because that’s all it was. Not much to the job, but it was a great experience for me. It taught me to value money.

Great company to develop a Finance career
Controller (Former Employee) –  Dearborn, MIJanuary 7, 2018
Finance careers at Ford Motor Company offer you with a wealth of opportunity and experience. It's rare within one company to be able to get experience in manufacturing, product development, marketing, purchasing, treasury, and a host of other areas. Most financial analyst jobs generally have good content and are fairly well structured. As you work your way up into management, the job content broadens and you get an opportunity to manage teams. However, with such a large company, the bureaucracy can be particularly frustrating at times, as it is difficult to be empowered to make any decisions (even some that may seem more trivial). The culture is one of family and often collaborative. Overall, it is a great place to get a range of finance experiences and broaden your knowledge and skills.
Pros
Breadth of experience, promotional opportunities, benefits, generous vacation and holidays, job content
Cons
Bureaucracy, work life balance (primarily at management level)

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Dearborn, MIJanuary 4, 2018
I really enjoyed working for Ford Motor Company and wish I could go back if it were possible. There were many advancements as far as moving up the Corporate latter. Also they would send you to classes to learn more and come up to where you needed to be in the clerical field or whatever your job title was. Ford Motor Company believe's in teaching you whatever you need to know and willing to listen to any of your advice to better their company.
Pros
During the holidays we would get the best of food.
Cons
Outstanding health insurance
