A Foundation for Success
Ford is dedicated to building great products to strengthen our business and benefit our communities.
Ford is committed to developing great products for customers around the world. In 2014, we introduced 23 new vehicles globally. Ford saw the largest percentage point gain in U.S. market share among automakers in 2013. In addition, Ford F-Series was the best-selling vehicle in the United States for the 32nd year in a row and Ford Focus was the best-selling nameplate in the world. With the freshest car portfolio in the industry and a commitment to deliver continuous improvement for fuel economy, Ford is well positioned in the global marketplace.
Great vehicles are great for drivers everywhere, and that’s the foundation of our business’s strength. To meet demand, Ford is in the midst of its most ambitious manufacturing expansion in 50 years. We’re increasing capacity in the United States and adding plants around the world.
We’re growing without sacrificing profits. In the past year, we’ve continued to fund our employee pension plans worldwide, delivered record profit-sharing contributions to our U.S. hourly employees and doubled our shareholder dividend.
Our work doesn’t stop with our products and our bottom line. An integral part of the Ford team’s DNA is ‘people serving people.’ That’s why our global brand promise is called Go Further – we go further so you can.
We’re helping to solve global challenges linked to economic development, energy security and environmental sustainability. In 2013, for example, Ford globally reduced the amount of water it used to produce each vehicle by 30 percent compared to a 2009 baseline, reaching its goal two years ahead of schedule. Plans are under way to set new long-term goals.
Community service is an important part of Ford’s heritage and always has been. The Ford Volunteer Corps will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2015. Ford Motor Company Fund and Community Services has donated more than $1.5 billion in its 65-year history.
Within our Sustainability report, our Blueprint for Mobility envisions the future of transportation, in which vehicles communicate with each other and the world around them to make driving safer, easier and more efficient. Our Blueprint for Sustainability goes beyond improved fuel economy and reduced CO2 emissions to define sustainability as a business model that creates value by preserving and enhancing environmental, social and financial capital.

Ford's Proud History of Inlcusion
Ford Motor Company has a proud history of supporting the military, dating as far back as 1919, when Henry Ford began to hire disabled veterans returning from World War I. This philosophy of inclusion made the company one of the first to hire people with disabilities, adapting the work environment to their specific needs. Henry Ford also honored these veterans by organizing a caravan of 50 Model Ts to take them to a convention in San Francisco.
During World War II, Ford Motor Company shut down civilian vehicle production to dedicate all of its resources to Allied war efforts. After the war, Henry Ford’s grandson, Henry Ford II, made a practice of integrating returning veterans into the workplace, which is still a vital priority at Ford.
Today, Ford Motor Company continues to support our military, taking special care of those troops whom we employ. Here, veterans have the opportunity to bring their unique skills to such varied automotive industry sectors as information technology, product development, marketing and more.
It’s our privilege to invite veterans to develop their career aspirations to Ford, where we foster an inclusive culture - free of barriers - and all employees are included, respected and appreciated.

I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (More than a year)
Pay and benefits are very competitive. Management is flexible to different working arrangements (flexible scheduling, telecommuting). One can see their work in action is real products.
One must be prepared to drop everything to resolve assembly plant issues. Working in a global team requires extra care and attention to details and timing.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
Helpful (2)No OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Dearborn, MI).
Process took more than 3 months. Was contacted by a recruiter by email originally, and had a phone interview with hiring manager a week later. I was then invited to the company headquarters in Dearborn. The face to face interview was split between a 3 person panel interview, followed by a tour of the company grounds. The panel interviewers were very easy going, and seemed enthusiastic about describing their respective departments. They said decisions would be within 2 weeks, but didn't hear from them until 4 weeks later. Thought the interview went well, but I was not chosen.
