Do you work at Ford Motor? How did you find the job? How did you get that first interview?

Any advice for someone trying to get in?

Over 30 years ago, you may have had a bad expereince at a Plant. It is nothing like that anymore.

For pure entertainment. It's hilarious reading all of the comments from the uninformed and disgruntle people out there. When you are on the outside looking in, you get a different perspective from those of us on the inside. Let's face it, it is not a perfect world that we live in. Every company has its faults. Ford is just beginning to turn teh corner to make a comeback.

Yes, I am still at Ford after 20 years. I graduated in 1978 with a Bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University. When I joined Ford in 1990, I went back to school and earned a Masters degree in Business Administration from Central Michaigan. About 75% of Ford engineers have their Masters or are working on them. Ford pays for you to further your education.

.. Just a thought, Do you think you didn't get hired do to Illiteracy? Or maybe that you cannot properly form a sentence? Simply put, they need competent people. MAYBE you didn't get hired because you couldn't assure them that you were?

Does anyone know the name of the hiring manager at Ford? If they have one at each location, I would be looking for the one in Dearborn.

Thank you,

Randy

I am also an LTS laid off in February, word I get over and over is June/July. Management at Flat Rock should be calling employees based on weeks worked as an LTS. More weeks= a call sooner
