    I have been working at The Ford Agency full-time

    Pros

    The Ford Agency is undoubtedly a tight knit team of hard workers. When you join the company, you truly feel like you're a valuable member of them team. They are patient and stellar at what they do. I learned much more than I initially thought I would while working for them, and couldn't be happier that my first job right out of college was with Ford. As I ventured into the next phase of my career, they were incredibly supportive and helpful. They actually placed me (who better to get me hired, then The Ford Agency, right?)! Amazing company, bright future ahead!

    Cons

    Nothing really comes to mind off the top of my head. If you're looking for a large office, this won't be for you. Good first job!

    I have been working at The Ford Agency full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    After graduating from college in May of 2013, I had not even considered leveraging a Staffing agency as a resource in my job search. After sending out endless applications during the months after graduation, I stumbled upon the Ford Agency for help in my search. I started assisting the Recruiters at The Ford Agency as a temporary Administrative Assistant over a year ago. A few weeks after starting, they offered me a permanent opportunity to work alongside The Ford Agency team; I was thrilled! Ever since I started here, I have continued to learn and no day at work is alike. The Ford Agency maintains a strong emphasis on relationships – both with applicants & clients, and this philosophy is on the forefront of every day. I feel extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to work alongside some of the best in the field and I learn something new every day!

    Cons

    No immediate concerns or cons come to mind when I think about my work experience at The Ford Agency thus far! Their HR policies & Senior Management allow for open communication, which is great.

    I have been working at The Ford Agency full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ford is a great place to work! I work with a terrific team of people who love what they do and take pride in their work. The work life balance is terrific! We have as much fun as we do success. When people come to visit the office I think they can tell that we love what we do. I have never worked in another agency but I get the feeling that we are a lot different. I don't know if I could survive in place that focuses only on cold calls and goals and not on the people (staff and clients).

    Cons

    Nothing is perfect, but Ford comes pretty close. I have had my growing pains as an employee but have always come out on top.

    I worked at The Ford Agency part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I got excited when I got a call from the recruiter, but they were interested in me working on mostly temporary assignment.

    Cons

    They are so judgemental in grilling you and your resume, and they are not really interested in helping you, but helping themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Try to care for the people who have skills and they are between jobs. Some of them are quiet good, with a lot of different skills to offer, they dont have to be lied.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. Being in between jobs is a difficult and emotional time for many people. Temporary work can be a great way to keep busy, meet new people, learn ... More

    Pros

    Great place to work while looking for permanent employment. They are very flexible about allowing you time off for any job interviews or things like that.

    Cons

    Hourly pay was not as high as other temporary agencies. Most of the jobs are pretty much the same, and are not always very exciting.

    Advice to Management

    I enjoyed my time with the Ford Agency, and appreciate everything they did for me during my job search. I would recommend it to anyone looking for temporary employment.


  8. "Research Associate Position"

    Pros

    I applied through the Ford Agency for a Research Position in April, 2016 and worked with Nicole. She was very nice and helpful and the process moved along quickly. She always kept me up to date and even suggested other jobs I could be interested in and would be a good fit. I'm very glad I had the chance to work with them, very helpful and nice company, definitely worth a try if you are looking for jobs in lobbying or law firms

    Cons

    Didn't end up getting an offer, but Nicole was thoughtful and let me know as soon as possible.

    Pros

    I've had opportunity to work at a few different agencies, all different in their own way, and I couldn't be happier at The Ford Agency. The company's values and mission are exactly what I was looking for and the work is exciting and rewarding!

    Cons

    Honestly, nothing comes to mind. I feel that my skills and strengths are valued and I am able to bring new ideas to the table that are accepted and encouraged.
