Interns: The summer internship program provides students with hands-on, career-specific experience through full-time work during summer break (from early-May through the end of August). Students are engaged in networking and educational activities throughout their internship to gain exposure to senior level management and to learn more about Ford, our values and career opportunities.
Most Summer Interns will have just completed their junior year of an undergraduate program or one academic year of a Master's program and are expecting to graduate the following year. Generally, candidates are selected for having top academic standing, as well as exceptional leadership, communication and self-motivation skills.
Ford College Graduates: A great way to go further with Ford is to join the company through the Ford College Graduate (FCG) program. Most departments offer these programs, which provide recent college graduates a variety of rotational job assignments during their first few years with Ford Motor Company.
Through the rotational assignments, the programs’ objective is to strengthen the FCG's business acumen and technical skills through rapid exposure to varied business activities. Upon completion of the program, the FCG “graduates” and is placed within his or her home department to continue building a career at Ford.

Ford is a leader in diversity & inclusion, and both remain key Ford business strategies. You’ll find diversity at every level of the company, from the boardroom to the design studio, from the plant floors to the engineering centers. Ford’s senior executive leadership team fully endorses this model and takes great pride in celebrating our workforce that reflects the society in which we live and work. Our diversity makes us a better company, a stronger company, by bringing in fresh ideas, perspectives, experiences and life responsibilities, and by fostering a truly collaborative workplace.

Ford has demonstrated commitment to both diversity and inclusion by endorsing and leveraging the power of employee resource groups (ERGs). ERG’s are organizations of employees who share similar characteristics or life experiences, and desire to use those similarities to create cross-functional workplace connections, provide professional development and advance business imperatives. For more than two decades, our ERGs have provided support, outreach and development to all employees. Ford's current ERG's inlcude:

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 worked at Ford Motor Company full-time
- Great place to start a career
- Learn a bunch about how to make products
- Learn how to work as a software engineer
- FANTASTIC people you work with
- They do a great job teaching employees valuable skills, but once they are good at what they do they are undercompensated
- Only possible to get raise with counteroffer outside performance review. Then it is too late
Advice to Management
- Get FordLabs more valuable projects/products to work on.
- If you are interested in attracting world class talent, pay accordingly. If you are interested in attracting regional talent, pay what you currently do
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company.
Got selected based only on phone interview
No negotiation, flat rate.
