Good pay, interesting work with lots of different stations you can switch to, very polite and friendly bosses


Not that much really, it can get boring if you are stuck for too long at one post, but normally you can switch a lot

    I worked at Ford Motor as an intern


    Lots of mentoring available if you seek it


    The company went on a hiring freeze while I was working there, it was a scary experience to see the panic in people's eyes just before Christmas. But I learned some valuable lessons on Leadership.

    I worked at Ford Motor as an intern for less than a year


    -The different plant locations in the area provide different work opportunities
    -Proximity to the headquarters assures company/business updates are recent and relevant
    -Although bad, the economic downturn allows for significant, available project work to be completed as they (hopefully) start rebuilding


    -Determining project work/objectives was challenging through the bureaucracy
    -On-boarding process was confusing, not straight-forward and poorly laid out
    -Was hired under one manager, who was then transferred to Canada, and transition to new manager was stodgy
    -Internally slow and lacking standard procedures for work, analysis, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The internship program should operate as a feeder into the full-time program, which was conferred to us but appears to be significantly lacking in operation. The project(s) were not fully laid out prior to my arrival, we scrambled my first week just trying to pull something together, and I was not given a proper exit interview/opportunity at the end of the summer. For a company that spoke of growing and expanding, that was less-than-evident in the facilities themselves.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
