    Great management team - company truly cares about its employees.

    I had a positive experience at Ford - I think it is important to be a more innovative, however, to compete with other car brands, such as Tesla.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Detroit, MI) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Overall, the interview process was lacking and in the end, disappointing. As a senior designer candidate, my first “interview” was a more of a standard “touch-base” with the internal recruiting coordinator where I was initially screened.

    A few weeks later, my first official interview consisted of a video where I rapidly presented relevant work within a 45 minute timeframe. I could have done better had I been set up for success. I feel the internal recruiter suggested I prepare to show one thing while the team interviewing me were requesting items I had had, but not on-hand for the interview. Had I known, I would have included exactly what they were looking for. I left that interview feeling a little defeated as I couldn’t show examples of exactly what they were wanting.

    After about a week, I heard back and was asked to travel on-site for a panel interview. Ford flew me out, paid for food and lodging and took care of all shuttles to/from the site. The interview lasted right at an hour where I sat in a cubicle with three others discussing the role and answering questions. Some of the questions were specific to my role and experience and some were standard/traditional interview questions. Overall I left feeling like I interviewed well, had great answers to all questions and asked some good ones myself.

    Along the entire process, I was good about sending my follow-up emails, expressing gratitude and excitement about the role. I heard at least three times that I would be told one way or another if I did or did not land the job. After a full month I checked in and was told it was both the holidays and the team was out of town but I should hear something the start of the year. After a full 6 weeks after interviewing, I officially recognized they weren’t going to let me know either way. I’m a little upset I didn’t get the job but I’m much more irritated that I never heard back one way or another, after being told I definitely would.

    For a company the size of Ford and the amount of time all parties invested in interviewing me and flying me out to Detroit, I’m a bit surprised and disappointed in the communication and lack of consideration. Not only was I not set up for success during my initial interview, they also didn’t stand by their word and keep me informed of the specifics.
