Not the best place I've worked over the last 30 years.
Catia V5 Designer (Former Employee), Dearborn, MIJune 29, 2015
Pros: Close to my home, flex time, decent pay, not the best but decent.
Cons: Poor management and leadership, two faced backstabbing employees.
A) A typical day at work: Sucks !!!
B) What I learned: There are way better companies out there on the horizon to work for.
C) Management: Mediocre at best. Slave driver managers and leaders. Get laid off or fired at the bosses whim.
D) Your co-workers: Too many two faced backstabbing employees.
E) The hardest part of the job: See D, C. I would get a knot in my stomach when I pulled into the parking lot.
F) Lunch, going home at night, calling in sick.

1) One of the top three WORST employers I've ever worked for.
2) Old worn out buildings in Dearborn over fifty years old an not very well taken care of.

They've Come A Long Way
Field Manager (Former Employee), Detroit, MIJune 27, 2015
Pros: Benefits were wonderful
Cons: Worklife balance can be challenging, along with constant product quality issues
Much needed work has been done on improving the quality and brand image. Great negotiated discounts with many non-automotive industries. Strategy is sometimes short-sighted. Not such a great relationship with their dealers which can make a Field Manager's job difficult

Great pay but terrible work-life balance
Process Coach ---First line Supervisor (Current Employee), Claycomo, MOJune 27, 2015
Ford is a great company to work. However, it's not a place to consider if you require any sense of work life balance. The hours are quite demanding, but you are well compensated for it.

Area Supervisor - Body Shop (Former Employee), Wayne, MIJune 9, 2015
Pros: Great company
Cons: Unions
Worked there 20 years and took the buyout -my only regret.

Ford had mentor that would help you be sucessful whereas the Union would protect lazy, and bad apples. I enjoyed my tenure there and will never forgot my roots!

Great workplace
Cashier/Receptionist/Warranty Administrator (Former Employee), Clermont, FLJune 9, 2015
A typical day involved talking to the service technicians.
Helping customers with their payments for service.
Answering phones and directing the caller to whom they needed or the correct department.
The hardest part of the job was not having the answer that the customer wanted about their vehicle.
The most enjoyable part of the job was helping the customers and having a great work relationship with the technicians.

Material Handler (Former Employee), Livonia, MIJune 1, 2015
Pros: Good working conditions
Cons: Loss of jobs.
Very fast paced production facility. Good equipment and good people to work with.

Hardest part of job was working for a company that wasn't staying in Michigan. So many jobs were outsourced to other countries. Company has been reduced from a major manufacturer to a major assembler of globally made parts. Not so good for the American economy.
