Student Intern Testimonials
As an intern, I was surprised to see the dynamism and agility that existed in a legendary company like Ford which has been in business for more than 100 years now. Through my summer and fall internship, it was obvious to me that the reason Ford holds the top spot in Canada is because of its global culture. I was given the freedom and latitude in planning and executing the project without any micromanagement from my supervisor.
I had the privilege of working on a high impact project over the summer to develop an industry forecast model and present it to senior management at the end of summer. The open-door policy and the flex work timings make me dream to have a long-term career with Ford after graduation.
It has been a rewarding experience working at Ford for my first internship. The Ford culture is very welcoming, positive, and supportive. Ford offers a variety of opportunities to learn, grow, and take on challenging assignments. I have had the ability to interact with various stakeholders throughout my work term and this has allowed me to learn about the different skill teams within the company, as well as use the skills that I have learned along the way.
Apart from the workplace, Ford provides their employees with many opportunities to make a difference in the community, meet with fellow colleagues, and participate in social activities, which has helped to shape my professional development in a positive way. Examples of these include the Intern Ride and Drive Event, MLSE Challenge, Sports Tournaments, Town Hall Meetings, and Dress up Week!
Ford is a wonderful company to work for as it gives you unlimited opportunities to grow both professionally and personally. Every day I am constantly challenged to apply my skills to the best of my abilities, allowing them to be constantly developed and refined. In addition, being able to have participated in numerous charitable activities here at Ford constantly shows you how much the company cares about people and the community.
The warming culture of the company makes you feel truly valued and the individuals working here continuously contribute to create an environment that encourages everybody to go further.
Being an intern at Ford has been an incredible experience because we get to take on many of the same projects as our full-time colleagues. Everyone is always willing to lend a hand and take the time to explain things to you because they understand the challenges that come with being in a new company or role.
Ford hires many interns each year, which helps the transition period and the onboarding process since you go through it with others that are in the same situation as you. The events held by Ford or their partners throughout the internship are a great way to get to know your colleagues better and network with people in various departments.
Working at Ford has provided me with countless opportunities to develop both personally and professionally. The culture here encourages you to ask questions and embrace new challenges, allowing you to learn from yourself and your co-workers every day.
In addition to helping to grow your career, Ford offers team-building experiences outside of the office environment. With staff Slow-Pitch tournaments, MLSE Team Up events, and WE day volunteering opportunities, there is no shortage of ways to be involved at Ford. I am extremely grateful to be part of a team which values growth and supports each other’s success.
Interning at Ford is a valuable and rewarding experience. Ford’s positive and supportive corporate culture is something that is noticeable at all levels within the company.
With the help of my co-workers and managers, I have greatly benefited from the knowledge and skills I have developed throughout my internship. It has been a privilege working at Ford and I firmly believe the experience I have gained here will help me for years to come.
