"Best job to possibly have with no degree."

"I have worked in IT at Ford for more than 20 years. Ford is not a high-tech company. It has stale IT. It struggles with bureaucracy, many legacy employees retired on the job, it perpetuates cultural problems such as lack of teamwork. Much of the IT work was offshored, though that decision is now being somewhat reversed. Generally the workload is light. You will spend more time waiting on approvals and in meetings than doing work. Generally coworkers are nice and supportive. Many IT people are in jobs for which they do not have the knowledge or skills for, yet are proclaimed Experts. This can be an impediment to accomplishing tasks."

"We stand in the rain in a long line waiting at Ford Highland Park. For work. You know what work is—if you’re old enough to read this you know what work is, although you may not do it. Forget you. This is about waiting, shifting from one foot to another. Feeling the light rain falling like mist into your hair, blurring your vision until you think you see your own brother ahead of you, maybe ten places. You rub your glasses with your fingers, and of course it’s someone else’s brother, narrower across the shoulders than yours but with the same sad slouch, the grin that does not hide the stubbornness, the sad refusal to give in to rain, to the hours of wasted waiting, to the knowledge that somewhere ahead a man is waiting who will say, “No, we’re not hiring today,” for any reason he wants. You love your brother, now suddenly you can hardly stand the love flooding you for your brother, who’s not beside you or behind or ahead because he’s home trying to sleep off a miserable night shift at Cadillac so he can get up before noon to study his German. Works eight hours a night so he can sing Wagner, the opera you hate most, the worst music ever invented. How long has it been since you told him you loved him, held his wide shoulders, opened your eyes wide and said those words, and maybe kissed his cheek? You’ve never done something so simple, so obvious, not because you’re too young or too dumb, not because you’re jealous or even mean or incapable of crying in the presence of another man, no, just because you don’t know what work is."

"Should have heeded the red flags. The GSM clearly hates going to work every day. A smile once in a while could go a very long way. Everyone there just tries to avoid him. No processes in place. Can spend your whole day hunting down information on a vehicle and usually the vehicle too. Forever needing to track down a manager to work a deal. One manager that needs to retire. Makes many costly mistakes effecting both company's bottom line and sales commissions. Very nice man, just think it's a health issue due to aging."

"The job is only part time. The manager is fantastic and the co-workers are fantastic. The guy from corporate is a jerk and tells the employees he has no problem firing everyone of us and fill the sets with better people. He only comes around once a month so that it is good."
