    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ford Motor Company (Allen Park, MI) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Ford talent team in allen park is excellent. Been on many interviews including other domestic auto companies and i have never been treated as well as i was at fird. The outlook is much more positive and they make you feel welcomed and that you will becoming part of theteam. If course there is no guarantee of this but it eases your nerves and makes you feel more confident going into the interview. Other places i have interviewed do not make you feel as welcomed and frequently make me feel that i am taking up their time and/or is a confrontational interview in which i am made to feel that i don't belong here and i am not going to get this job but i am somebody they have to interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical situational based questioning and some technical expertise questions.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Ford Motor Company (Allen Park, MI) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied to posting from Monster,com, brief phone interview, then flight, hotel, & transportation covered for in-person interview in Dearborn. The position I applied to was way out of my league, and I was quite surprised that they even called, but maybe they get a commission for the number of people they bring in to interview? I answered a few basic programming questions over the phone and a couple weeks later they asked me to schedule a time to come to Dearborn. Free flight, free limousine service to the Dearborn Inn (which is a sight to see), $25 dinner voucher, then shuttle transportation to the interview center.

    Interview Questions

    • Phone interview was ridiculous; just a secretary recording your answers to basic object-oriented programming questions. In-person interview was me in front of 3 manager-types with 5 situational questions and 5 technical questions.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Dearborn, MI) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Met recruiter at an on campus career fair, talked to them and was signed up for an on campus interview later that week. Received a second round interview for which I traveled to Dearborn, MI. Morning of the interview gathered with other candidates for breakfast. Ford showed us a video of pro-Michigan propaganda and another of pro-Ford propaganda. Not very informational, just all the reasons why Michigan/Ford is the best place on the planet. Toured Ford facilities in Dearborn, Henry Ford's name was only mentioned oh, two or three hundred times on said tour. Interviewed in the afternoon with two sets of engineers.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ford Motor Company (Dearborn, MI) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I started by applying when Ford came to my university and had an info session. I had a 1 on 1 on campus interview with a higher up manager which lasted about 45 minutes. I got a call the next day from the same interviewer asking me to come to Ford's Talent Center for a second interview. The second interview began was a 3 on 1 panel interview which were mostly technical questions and not so much scenario based. The interview lasted about an hour and a half and was followed by an optional bus tour that I chose to go on. There was also a brief info session before the interview began.
