Just hired last week. I took a standard panel urine test at a local LabCorp. Drugs tested were: marijuana, cocaine, opiates, amphetamines (e.g. meth, Adderall), barbiturates, benzodiazepines, methadone, PCP, oxycodone, and propoxyphene.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make Ford Motor Company a better place to work?
I would have meetings where employees had a chance to meet and get to know each other. Friendships among co-workers are important. They care how they treat the product if it is going down the line to their buddy who will build on their buddy's work.
Just took the test March 13th 2019 and the test was quite hard, (the whole test was timed) it was reading comprehension, math, matching, but what got me was the mental assembly, may be easy for most but this was difficult for me...I took a total of 7 test and some were test that had 150 questions and u had only 4-6 min to complete as many as u can....still waiting to see if passed or not...when I left I had a headache and I’m a great test taker so please be ware
Long hours, from 10.7 hours to 11.5. The 11.5 only happens when something breaks down and it take time to repair company will notify you to work a Mandatory 11.5 hours until they see fit that production is caught up and will return to 10.7 hours regular hours
I just received an at-will employment offer from Ford, is it standard for all new hires? Or will I be offered a permanent contract after a certain period of time, say six months/one year?
Show up every single day on time. Work very hard. Pay attention to details. You have to move quick and be in descent shape. I left in 2001 and was making $20.00 an hour. I still regret leaving till this day. The benefits we're excellent. Great paid-vacation. Profit sharing was very nice. I would be making around $30.00 an hour in today's pay.
When I first took the contract job at Ford I was told I could be hired in; 3 years of excellent performance, reviews and awards determined that was a lie. Turns out they rarely hire contract workers in direct (maybe 1 of ever 100-200) and are perfectly happy keeping people in never ending contracts. Contract employees often don’t have the same pay (lower), don’t get paid time off so they have to just eat all the shut down days (and there are a lot), don’t get bonuses and get to watch all the direct employees be excited and run around talking about what they’re going to buy with their bonuses that day. The quality of life for a contract person is starkly different than a direct employee working there. Many constantly worried about losing their jobs as a norm since contract workers are typically the first cut. Contract employees were always made to feel inferior yet you often did the same work side by side with the direct ones in the same cubicles with a Ford email address in the ford building. The other contract employees I talked to felt the same. I consistently won and maxed out on the awards I could get every year for job performance and was often told I did a good job but they would not give me the one thing that I wanted - to be a peer in the company and appropriate compensation.
Also there was no HR available to me as a contract employee. So if you need HR for any reason at all, you’re out of luck as my contract company did not offer this or even a steady rep.
So, no job stability, low compensation, few benefits, no opportunity for advancement, and no HR. I also craved more advanced work than I was given because as an administrative assistant for Ford, most of my duties revolved around scheduling meetings, planning picnics, passing out mail. I went to college to do more than plan parties with a degree in business and felt underutilized. That being said, if they had hired me in direct, I would have probably never left, because the direct employees are very well taken care of.
I really liked my managers and coworkers, and the laid back atmosphere but that didn’t trump the issues. That’s why I left.
As ussally for me all together and once and for all enlope again. Now best Number one boss is in the house. Thanks just thinking of the good bad and what I use to do later agaators. LOL
Hi, I have filled an application, taken the assessment and gotten an email that I passed. but I have not heard anything since then, its approaching 2 weeks since I took the test. Should I be worried? I really want to work for FORD
Hi, I have filled an application, taken the assessment and gotten an email that I passed. The same day I took the assessment, two hours later got an offer of employment. I had 3 days to accept the offer. Was asked to fill out the forms such as background check and so on. Just waiting on the next step. The waiting games is on...
How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at Ford Motor Company? What are the steps along the way?
Applied on indeed about 5 weeks ago for Chicago Assembly Plant. About 1 week later, Ford HR emailed me in August with a couple open day slots for the test at the Marriott hotel in Orland park, IL(10 miles southwest Chicago) Sat -3pm start time...test lasted about 7 hours. Mid August I received a call from HR telling me I have passed the test, and needed to do a physical, and drug test, Note:( they had me fill out background check at clinic paperwork also...They said they were looking to hire really quickly, so be prepared and make sure you got all your stuff together.) About 4 days later got a call from HR telling me I had completed the process, and gave me a couple start days for orientation. Just finished my 4 day orientation yesterday. Next week is my first official week on assembly floor for training. in all the process from start to finish was about 5 weeks.
