    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Ford Motor Company.

    Interview Details

    Interviews are tough.... Almost like being tested rather than an interview. Most interviews I've had with other companies were more like conversations. Ford was tough situational questions, asking how you should react.

    Ford College Graduate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dearborn, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dearborn, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ford Motor Company in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Went to a recruiting event on campus and had an on-campus interview. Following that they sent me a case study I had to do which seemed weird since my background was design/engineering related and has nothing to do with business but it was very easy and subjectively used during a group interview that was onsite. They fly you out to Dearborn and had an interview with two current engineers and then the group interview. Only a few days later after the flight do you hear back with an answer.

    Interview Questions
    • My case study was: the company is doing well after years of problems and they finally have money again. How should they spend it? Advertising, community initiatives, create off-site working capabilities for people to work at home, or buy other companies? None of these are wrong but you have to pick one and then as a group come to a conclusion on which to choose.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Non-negotiable for salary but their benefits and relocation packages are very good.

    IT Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dearborn, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dearborn, MI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Ford Motor Company in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Overall the process was fairly painless. After applying online I received an email to set up a phone interview. After my phone interview, which was with 3 people, a few weeks passed and I received an offer. The part of the process that takes the longest and is most grueling is the onboarding process. Getting the information about your position and start take a long time but it is very rewarding when you get to see all of your options.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions were behavioral. They were all pretty much "name a time" or "what would you do if" style questions. The one question that stuck out the most and is always challenging for people is "why [insert company name]."   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Did not negotiate.

    Project/Program Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Allen Park, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Allen Park, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Ford Motor Company in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    At Ford HQ in Dearborn Michigan there are many departments that interview for Project/Program Management and the interviews could not be more different. All my interviews have had multiple people interviewing any where from 2 - 6 people. Some interviews asked very open ended questions that you are not sure what they are actually looking for in an answer. For these questions you need to be detailed but yet brief. Others are a little more structured asking specific questions on what type of tools used, types of documents created etc. and sometimes having people just throw questions at you in a ping-pong type arena. Then there is the 3-4 person multi-phased question interview. This one is timed and one person will give you one main question with multiple sub-questions and give you 1 1/2 minutes to respond, with a Q & A session at the end for them to get better clarification if needed. Example: 1) Have you ever created documentation? A) type of documentation, why needed B) tool and methods used to create C) who/what was your target environment D) was it successful, explain -- Take this and do it 2-3 more times with different questions to answer.
