At Ford Motor Company, hourly production hiring is decentralized; it is the responsibility of each individual facility, based on the operational requirements of that location. When hiring needs occur for hourly production workers, manufacturing facilities use the local state employment service (i.e., Michigan Works agency in the state of Michigan) as a source of candidates. Job seekers are encouraged to register at the state employment service office nearest the Ford facilities where they are interested in working. Job seekers also should update their registration periodically.
Note that in accordance with collective bargaining agreement provisions, Ford hourly job opportunities (such as those mentioned in the public media from time to time) must first be presented to current Ford employees – including those on layoff or facing layoff – before external hiring can occur.
If you are interested in being considered for skilled trades openings, we recommend you follow our Facebook and Twitter pages via the links above. All candidates must have completed a bona fide apprenticeship program - or have either eight years of previous experience or a combination of previous work experience and training equivalent to a bona fide apprenticeship program. Qualified job seekers are encouraged to visit the online sources frequently and register at the state employment service office nearest the Ford facilities where they are interested in working.
