    I have been working at Ford Motor Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy commute. Good air circulation.

    Cons

    No structure, low pay, overworked, a lot of gossip. Didn't know what my pay was upon hire; been here 3 weeks still no check. Everything find on paper, responsible for way too much

    Advice to Management

    Stop being cheap and compensate your receptionists better. We are basically accounting assistants, tracking all of this money, going through invoices, managing 7 years of invoices and accounting. Most importantly, build some kind of structure. What type of company doesn't have a proper onboarding process?

    I worked at Ford Motor Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good company structure, benefits, that's about it. Pay was low management was poor poor training and onboarding company might be great but it's all about your manager.

    Cons

    If you get a good manager your life might be ok, my manager was terrible, threw me right into fire as a new hire, zero training and was sent to runoffs by myself, way too many acronyms, manager treated me as he was my babysitter telling me he came to meeting just to check on me, etc. says "I was able to pick it up not sure why you can't" you've been here 20 years clown. Very intimating, if you want good talent, treat them like employees, train them and respect them

    Advice to Management

    Don't scare off young talent by not providing training and expecting too much.

    Pros

    There are none in this company

    Cons

    Micromanages, Hiding of Issues, Questionable Ethics, Nepotism in Company, No Explanation of Objectives

    Listen to your employees feedback. Otherwise you'll be heading back to 2006 era where almost everything was on the line.

    Pros

    You make 15.78 per hour.

    Cons

    no job security, basic insurance after 90 days (no dental/vision ect) part time (30 hours per week) very limited union benefits, full union dues. no guarantee to be hired full time. almost no choice on schedule.

    Advice to Management

    When getting hired trainers told us how new workers don't want to stick around, might have something to do with lack of security and opportunity.

    Pros

    Hmmm. Twenty words about this place which says something positive about my experience here. I can't think of ONE word.

    Cons

    In a word - BORING. Two words - BORING, FRUSTRATING. Three words - BORING, FRUSTRATING, CHEAP. Can't believe I stayed this long

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. Be more even handed. Realize people like a career not just a job.

    Pros

    Pay good, profit sharing well deserved by employees, opportunities for low income people that they hire and the felons.

    Cons

    hostile environment, not safe environment going into work, leaving work and working there. felons work next to you without your knowledge. racism rampant against white people.

    Advice to Management

    fix the roof, add air conditioning, better training instead of learn this in 3 minutes, better union, alot less harassment and overall need to teach these supervisors how to treat people who are good workers with respect. women mean nothing there just a piece of meat. some women are there to work. I was one of those women.
