    I worked at Ford Motor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Ford as with the other "Big 3" auto manufacters have great benefits and large amount of vacation time. Pay isn't bad either, higher than most "outside" skilled trades positions.

    Cons

    Very little or no room for advancement. Even though the economy is showing some improvement it's hard not to have a precarious, uneasy feeling about the future of your career in the automotive industry, do inpart because of the economic climate here in the greater Detroit area.

    I have been working at Ford Motor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working for ford its self is a okay company. with good benefits and a nice salary with the chance of bonuses from quarter reviews. great health insurance and a stable company

    Cons

    Well the plant conditions are horrendous they could try more of the moral techniques. long hours worked and the physical and mental strain on the human body is well stretched. they hire just about anyone with any background which sometimes is not the best business decision. you start to feel trapped like you cant move up in the company. plus the union aren't as helpful as you would expect them to be. Overall its a blue collar setting job which leaves the door open for more then you would like expect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice change the setting of the work place to a more calm and stress free atmosphere I bet work production and sale would continue to grow given the fact that your employees are truly satisfied. make ways for the company and union to work better so employees can move up in the company open more doors and change the whole medical system.

    I have been working at Ford Motor as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Representing the Blue Oval is an honor! I drive a 2012 Ford Focus because it was built in Michigan, and I am proud that the company that makes such an awesome ride cares so much for its home.

    Cons

    I have to commute an hour each way. It is a big sacrifice especially with gas prices being as high as they are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please share this scholarship opportunity further! It is such an honor to do great work for Michigan communities. Keep trusting Wayne State University students; we will amaze!
