    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Offers a consistent work schedule. Fair Pay for jobs performed . More than fair raises. Profit sharing.

    Cons

    There is a network of rules and red tape put in place to keep employees from taking advantage of the system to call out of work that sometimes does more harm to employees genuinely needing the time off work.

    What you report here is very disturbing and not a reflection of our values. I will be sharing this review with the appropriate Ford personnel, and would encourage you to contact your local HR representative or our hotline (888.735.6650) to discuss the specifics of this situation. Thank you.

    I worked at Ford Motor Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay. No others. Terrible hours except a crew. If u are lucky to get an easy job then you may be able to keep your job if you want to work as a temp for years if they don't fire you even if you never call in.

    Cons

    Make up reasons to fire temps who excel. Pay off government to perform illegal activities. Allow racism and harassment of employees with no remorse. Jobs are over the top ridiculous .

    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Hard to get fired, lots of employee support legal, medical, etc. I struggled with addiction and the Employee Support Program got me the help I needed. There's a gym in the plant. The Employee Tuition Assistance Program is a plus for anyone looking to pursue schooling. There is also some sort of retirement match program. Lots of benefits for sure.

    Cons

    Hard labor, 'Seniority' mindset where people feel they deserve more not because they work the hardest and smartest but because they've been there longer. Lots of grown cry babies. Culture is non existent at the level of the average hourly laborer, though it seems like there might be some sort of culture existent at the salaried employee's level. Drab negative mindset is consistent throughout the plant. Not for everyone so if you get hired and don't like it, DON'T FORCE IT. It may not be for you so leave before you get too many years in and get caught in the trap that I see way too many hourly Ford employees get caught in!
