Not sure how much our CEO can be trusted right now, especially in regards to layoffs being planned by Ford, but he seems to be adamant about layoffs not eclipsing those of GM. Note that he is not saying there will be no layoffs, mid you... read more
Ford downsized Ford Global Technologies, LLC already - happened in November 2018
So many analysts and experts and whatnot are saying that Ford will be laying people off in tens of thousands sometime in the future, creating unnecessary panic without even giving us any time frame of when those layoffs might happen. What's the point... read more
Flat Rock Assembly will be eliminating a production shift. It was noted that the HOURLY employees are safe and will still have jobs which will be available at other Ford facilities.
All contractors being laid off Ford Dunton UK December 2018
I was so close, I am 55 and have nine years with Ford. Funnily enough, I used to work for GM as well once upon a time. While General Motors offered a buyout and now faces layoffs to trim its white-collar ranks, Ford quietly presented salaried... read more
Count on it, this will get worse and worse for years to come.
Personally, I expect 2019 to be an awful year when the company starts to reveal its plans for ‘restructuring’ and then start to implement those plans by way forced and voluntary redundancies. We have openly been told by the company that it needs to... read more
If there will be no Ford Layoffs in 2019 please say so?
Do we have any ideas on when we'll know who is getting laid off? I like working at Ford, I've been here for over a decade now and have enjoyed every day of it. But things have changed so much since the announcement, everybody seems to be on edge... read more
The announcement was not clear and poorly timed. They should have waited until they were ready. Now we have to worry daily and walk on egg shells until we know if we as individuals are being put out on the streets. HOLIDAYS are coming and I'm sure... read more
A promised lifetime employee purchase plan benefit evaporated when I accepted the lump-sum pension payout offer, which Ford's A-Plan system interpreted as my having died.
Stop with lies
We are anxious too - me and my SO work together for Ford, we fear what may happen if the cut is as deep as they predict. With three kids at home, a sick parent and all eggs in one basket (Ford) we are not in the best position. I hope all turns out... read more
Nobody is getting any answers from Hackett until "the time is appropriate". Much like his CEO history with Steelcase. If you read his past and how he made Steelcase a profitable company you would have learned he is a Consolidator. He cut 12,000 jobs... read more

It seems fairly obvious from some threads here that some posters/commentors are FMC employees. Would any of you be able to shed any light on the two U.K. engine plants? Dagenham engine plant in England produces diesel engines and is suffering due to... read more
Well, they say no cuts: https://www.detroitnews.com/story/business/autos/ford/2018/09/07/how-ford-tackling-its-restructuring/1214926002/
Should Flat Rock Assembly be worried with Ford eliminating cars? Has anyone heard talk about moving the Mustang to another facility that builds SUV's?
Hacket is a Hack. He's taking out his failures on the employees. Stock is down with this clueless person at the help. He has no business in automotive...
I'm a PD engineer and I received some information that Hackett wants to reduce PD headcount by 20% in 2019.
Ford will most likely close its Bordeaux plant. To be honest, it's good to see Ford closing a plant in Europe instead of another one here. I'm sorry for those who will lose their jobs, but Ford is an American company and it should focus on saving... read more
If the economy is "Booming!" why are more people defaulting on their car loans than at the worst of the recession? Hint: Because the economy is not booming, despite what the talking head on TV says. A credit bubble is not an economy, and now it's... read more

I work at a dealer, in sales. A successful dealer, up until maybe the last year or so. Sales cratered about a year ago and have continued to fall. We've laid salespeople off, lot boys, cut costs because we had to. Our sales are down far more than... read more
Someone posted not long ago about this and I can confirm it. Ford is now forced to buy back inventory after channel stuffing so bad, way beyond normal, that they had no choice due to dealers threatening legal action. So the next trick is to re-sell... read more
Yeah, sure Ford. Just another low life tactic to try to spin a layoff announcement. It truly amazes me how utterly desperate and slimy big corporations are these days, and the depths they'll go to in an attempt to hide or spin their layoffs... read more
Massive Lay offs at Dearborn Plant and in Kansas also under way in April 2018 !!! Ford buy cars from dealers to create false impression of the car sales, but reality is they buy and resell again to keep numbers up ,tricky ups!?. Leave company before... read more
Car sales collapsing across the board and even truck sales losing their mojo. What did you expect after 6 years of "sub prime lending" to people who make less per year than their car is worth? Defaults are going through the roof right now and for the... read more
