My big question that I can’t seem to get answered is - what if I don’t take the VSSP but am walked out next year? I’m retirement eligible. Will I still get to apply for retirement benefits if I am let go without cause as part of a headcount target? — read more
From Ford Authority. This will leave a painful mark. How can Ford be profitable with this cost and no revenue for 70k trucks? In recent months, a number of partially-built Ford F-150 and Ford Super Duty pickups have been stashed in locations... — read more
Customers will buy Ram and Silverado off the lots instead of waiting MONTHS for a new F-150. Laughable novice and mortal strategy change. For many years now, most automakers have built a host of vehicles, shipped them to dealers, and sold them in... — read more
If not for “other income” of $1.155 Billion, our profit would not be $561 Million, it would be a loss. In Q2, automotive operations lost $1.09 BILLION. Short term automotive interest payments are $926 Million (does not include Ford Credit). Short... — read more
You can’t make this stuff up, listen to the Q2 earnings call, he was reading a script and couldn’t get it right. Sad.
We have Ford employees running their own businesses during office hours, while getting paid by Ford. This is not something that started with WFH, but I am sure there are more people doing it now. That gives you an idea of how much actual work is... — read more
In the financial statements, we’ve stopped breaking out on “other income statement” info the expense for Mobility. Could spending $BILLIONS in expenses to gain $millions in revenue be the reason?
If you weren't already here, would you come to Ford now? I would never do so. Except maybe in case I was desperate. That is why I don't understand those who come here now with great expectations. Do these people do research at all when looking for a... — read more
The beginning of many issues to be “discovered” by customers. The Ford Motor Company serves as the perfect example with the Mustang Mach-E, the all-electric crossover that may discharge the 12-volt battery while plugged in over janky software for... — read more

I've only been here less than a year. Despite the job being very stressful, I'd love to keep it as long as possible. I thought Ford didn’t cut people who have only been here a few months, but I recently heard that it’s not at all unusual here. How... — read more
Meaning how many people took it (full-timer's) as well as how many people got laid off via contracts? Someone posted in another post that the target for VSSP is 1000. Might be a good gauge to predict who might take this years package.
Just got my 2 years in full time and I will be turning 50 by end of this year. I got the offer yesterday and my stomach sank. Would trying to go to another department be recommended that won't be affected by the voluntary offer? At a bare minimum via... — read more
Are they offering buyouts to salary in manufacturing plants or is it just specific areas so far?
I wonder how many people will take the package that Ford is offering? I head they are giving a maximum of 6 months salary for people with more than 20 years of service - which is really disappointing and that is why I do not believe there will be... — read more
Didn’t we just have a Woke fest very recently?
