    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Initial Ford assessment test then Phone screening by HR, Then a video interview then onsite interview. I applied on the company website in September 2016, Then immediately I received an assessment which contains math and verbal questions after clearing it I got screening call from the recruiter. I cleared it and then recruiter set up a video interview. This position is for Pivotal. Pivotal has contract with ford. I cleared that round and Ford sent me flight tickets prior one month to my onsite interview. But in the last week, the recruiter called me and informed that my interview was canceled. With Ford, I had worst experience. They should not have selected me after Video round. I was preparing for an interview for one month and they irresponsibly rejected me even without evaluating. I never apply for ford again and my suggestion is to keep ford as an optional and try for other companies.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company.

    Interview

    I interviewed at Ford for an internship position at my university. The interview process was quite simple and I was asked about my past technical projects, how I work in a team, what I would do about quality assurance. All very basic questions. I was given an offer and told that I would work as a Software Developer. I was quite excited about this opportunity, however, I had no further contact from Ford until about 2 weeks before I was supposed to relocate to Dearborn. I then received a message that they had placed me in Project Management in charge of turning their plant operations on and off. I ended up rescinding the offer as the position I had originally agreed to was not the one that was given in the end.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Allen Park, MI).

    Interview

    I have worked at Ford through agency for 6 years. And still they won't convert me. So I applied for few direct positions. One position called me for interview. The interview lasted one and half hours. First half was general technical knowledge questions. Absolutely no technical test. Second was mostly behavioral questions. I was extremely professional, and answered question professionally. Few days later, I received rejection email saying there is no clear alignment with the role. Now I came to know that I am ineligible for interview for Ford position for next 12 months. That way Ford will enjoy my work for 12 more months without giving me benefits or bonuses.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral, tell me about the time kind of questions. Other than technical, they are looking at example of when you were team player.   Answer Question

    Ford College Graduate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company.

    Interview

    I applied online my senior year. There was a "skills" quiz you was mostly reading basic pie charts and answering simple questions on them. After that there was a phone interview, then a group interview via WebX. After that interview, two weeks later Ford contacted me and arranged paid airfare for an in-person interview in Michigan, paid for a car to pick me up from the hotel and to take me to the airport afterwards. I must say they have a very well-oiled interview system set up.

    At the in-person interview, we were put in a room with other candidates while a company rep gave us a rundown of Ford's benefits, history, and marketing plan. Then we all went to our interviews. Mine was with three reps from the 3 different sections of the engineering group I'd applied to. The interview lasted about an hour, which seemed to be the average length. After that, we were given a tour of the campus and test track.
