    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Dearborn, MI) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Had an initial phone screen for 30 min which covered behavioural type questions. Then had an on-site interview which lasted for 1.5 hrs and had similar questions to the phone interview but went in more detail regarding the technical details of the projects on the resume.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Dearborn, MI) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Applied for an interview through university website. Was selected for an on campus interview with two recruiters. Interview consisted of about 5-10 behavioral questions. Ford also asks you to fill out a form to indicate the top 3 engineering departments that you are interested in. Different groups within Ford view this form and your resume to determine whether or not they want to interview you.

    A few weeks later I received an email indicating they would like to fly me up to Dearborn, MI for a final interview. This interview consisted of a brief introductory video to Ford, an interview with a panel of three employees from the group that selected me, lunch, and then a tour of the nearby factory.

    The interview itself consisted of 5 behavioral questions and 5 "technical" questions, where you are asked to reference past technical experience when answering a question.

    The GOOD:
    Interviewers were kind and courteous. Environment was relaxed. Ford rolls out the red carpet for your travel, lodging, and food. Very efficient machine.

    The BAD:
    The group interviewing me was not one of the three I selected on the sheet. I needed to email the recruiter to find out which group was interviewing me, so if they don't tell you initially, email your contact and ask. The interview itself was very (>50%) similar to the interview that I went through on campus, not much new material. Very confused why I needed to fly up to Michigan to conduct essentially an identical interview. There was only about 10 minutes left at the end of the interview for me to ask questions of them. Not nearly enough time if you have more than 3 questions to ask about the company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Kansas City, MO).

    Interview

    Didn't have one. A ton of people had to take a test in order to get the job. Then it was a waiting game. Once they had an opening then someone reached out and called you and you had to stop whatever you were doing and take the job.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company.

    Interview

    Brief. They were more interested in recruiting me, than asking me specific questions (they seemed to already know about my accomplishments). This involved a phone interview, one-on-one and then a group panel interview, all of which took two months.
