    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Ford Motor Company (UK) (Dagenham, England (UK)) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Submitted online application well before the original deadline. Waited around for some time and then got an email asking for further details about my high school education and how I managed to get into university (despite providing degree transcript showing my Distinction Masters). After sending this information off I waited about a month and was told I had a telephone interview in two days. Did the interview, went well, standard HR questions i.e. why the company, difficult challenge, team work, basically to see if you can give examples to meet their sought after attributes that are listed on the website.

    Waited 3 weeks and got a rejection. So, I went on holiday. A month after my rejection I get an email asking me to go to an assessment centre in 6 days. I had to phone them and see if I could have this moved to after I came back from holiday. No problem.

    The AC was standard - In-tray, role play, interview and group exercise. Nothing unexpected, nothing too difficult. Interview questions were not technical, just make sure you can demonstrate an understanding of the current engineering challenges and propose any ideas for how you see the sector developing in the future.

    Interview Questions

    • In-tray exercise - Hardly any time to do a lot of work. Make sure you practice.   Answer Question

Large interview day with several others being interviewed for different jobs (service adviser/sales associate) takes all day but very relaxed, there are managers from several of the regions stores and they all take the time to meet and chat to people throughout the day. Lunch is provided and you are paid for attending the interview. Very competitive process. One to one interview, very relaxed after other tests designed to test your customer service skills.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Ford Motor Company (UK) (Rainham, London, England (UK)) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Online application form with the usual questions (why ford, examples of leadership etc). If you meet the minimum requirements you are then invited to complete a non-verbal online test, then numerical if successful. Having completed both, you're asked to book yourself a slot for the telephone interview. This is competency based, focusing on ford's key values (all the information needed is in the email). The last stage is an assessment centre. You'll complete a role-play exercise involving a presentation, an in-try writing exercise, group task, and 1-1 interview. The interview is very similar to the telephone one, competency based and motivations for working for ford and the role you have applied to.

    Interview Questions

    • None really. All typical interview questions. Make sure you know about the ONE ford plan and recent developments in the field.   Answer Question
