"Where dreams go to die."

What do you like about working at Ford Motor?

"I am pleased to know that my efforts contributed to Ford Motor Co. survival."

What do you like about working at Ford Motor?

"I enjoyed working with the people committed to the product and the challenge of the job in all of the positions that I held with the company. I loved the fact that Management thought enough of me and my work to call me back after leaving the company, to assist with a new product launch."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Be honest, sincere, committed and a people person. Your strength, and success will come from those who work for and support you. Know the names of those who work for you and always say 'Thank You' when a job has been well done. It's easy recognition and costs so little to let people know they are important to what makes it happen."

What don't you like about working at Ford Motor?

"I didn't enjoy working with people not committed to doing their best work. Quality of workmanship, whether in production or in Plant Engineering, in support of production, was and has always been a priority with me. Anything short of that has been reason for concern and root cause analysis."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I am no longer with the Company. Stay the course would be my only suggestion, as they are doing well and are moving in a direction of more empowerment to the employees."

What do you like about working at Ford Motor?

"Working with Indian people. Their corruption knows no limits. Offshoring is so well encouraged and the company does a fantastic job of hiding the fact that it's no longer an American corporation."

"Very high employee turnover, as well as a complete lack of innovation from the IS and IT end of things. Product innovation is solicited from Europe and China."

What suggestions do you have for management?
