    Interview Details

    Online application, takes approximately 45 mins, your not timed but you are expected to finish it by a rough time limit. 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.

    IT Graduate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Rainham, London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Ford Motor Company (UK) in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    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

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Ford Motor Company (UK) in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    All jobs are first open to internal canidates before they are avertisied externally. This allows for great progression if you show initiativce and work hard.
    Anyone who submits an application for a role is likely to get an interview if their existing manager approves it. therefore this will always be at your managers discretion. Although this sounds slightly unfair, I have never come across anybosy whos application has bee declined.
    Al mangers have a monthly meetig whereby they discuss the achievements of their staff. therefore other managers are aware of how you are performing. The interview process is basically a one to one interview. You are likely to here if you have passed the interview a few days later
