Ford Motor Company Interview Questions

25 Ford Motor Company Interview Questions
Question 1 of 25
What do you know about Ford Motor Company?
How to Answer
Ford wants to know that you are excited at the prospect of joining them! A few topics worth researching before your interview are the company history, their values, and the latest news. You can find everything you need on their website, but you can also go farther! Investigate employee reviews on Glassdoor or Indeed.

Talk about how you were impressed by their reputation and how they have evolved as a company to meet the needs of a changing economy. If you're interested in the history, you can find an entire timeline starting in 1896 that explains the history of Henry Ford and his inventions. Make a list as you research and then share a few of the most exciting things you found out.

Answer Example
"I know that your company was founded in 1903, by Henry Ford, and you remain one of the biggest automobile brands in the world today. I also found it interesting that Ford owns 8% of Aston Martin, another brand of vehicle that I love so much. I appreciate that your employees stay for a long time and that you invest a lot of funds into your communities."

Talk about a goal that Ford will help you accomplish over the next few years. Perhaps you want to manage a team or be the top salesman in your district. Share the steps you will take over the next five years to reach your goals.

Answer Example
"I aim to work my way into a management position within your production team. I understand there is much to learn when it comes to your immaculate manufacturing process; however, I am eager to invest my time into learning and growing here."

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
