    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Ford Audio-Video Systems gearbeitet (Weniger als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    Guaranteed 40 hours no matter how slow. Paid weekly via direct deposit.

    Kontras

    Management is unorganized. I never knew what I was doing the next week until the previous Thursday or Friday, even if it included out of town tasks. Very corporate and felt micromanaged. You sign in/out of the building just to show management that you're there. You'd think this also works as a time clock, but no. Every hourly employee has to log what they did every single day in 15 minute increments on a timesheet. This is how you're paid! Dated Unix-based system for everything, they're proud of it because the founder wrote the code. It's actually a joke working on it and so much better software on the market. On-boarding literally took months.

    Rat an das Management

    It's not the 1980s anymore. Trust your employees and give them freedom to think for themselves. You may be one of the biggest companies in the industry, but you can be even bigger and more successful with new mentality.

    Pros

    The people, well the nice ones.
    The pay if you don't mess up.

    Kontras

    The rules and policies to suck the life and money out of you.
    Literally any chance they get they will make you pay for almost everything on a job. (i.e. Tools)
    The profit sharing as with the PTO program is a joke.

    Rat an das Management

    Stop just focusing about money and improve your employees work life.

    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Ford Audio-Video Systems gearbeitet (Weniger als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    A lot of great people and great things to learn! The Fords actually working full time for the company create a nice mom and pop business atmosphere.
    Mrs. Ford likes to challenge and bring out the best in her employees and she tries to stay involved in every department. stay honest and work hard and there is potential for growth in some departments.

    Kontras

    Communication. The head of my department was not transparent with owners or teammates, and allowed the constant bullying of other teammates making a very uncomfortable environment. It was no team at all.

    Rat an das Management

    Take care of the people that take care of you by holding leadership accountable.

    Use resources more effeciently and use the saved dollars to fund a 401k matching program for every employee.

    Pros

    Made some really good friends.
    Learned a lot about the industry.

    Kontras

    Low pay
    Never get reviewed for raises or promotions
    No benefits
    You have to pay for all your own tools (even specialty ones) and are 100% responsible for replacing them if stolen/broken
    Horrible communication
    Often times don’t know where you are working
    Sometimes you find out last minute you are traveling out of town for two weeks
    Extreme micro management on every level
    Low pay
    Low pay

    They promise that the low salaries are made up by quarterly “Profit sharing” but they never explain how it is divided amongst everyone and often times “cap” out the amount that people get.
    No benefits
    Low pay (hope you get the point)
    Extremely high turnover rate
    Morale is extremely low

    Rat an das Management

    You could have a solid, stable team of employees if you gave them better reasons to stick around. Stop treating people like they are expendable.

    Pros

    It's a job that has a paycheck attached to it
    There are some really nice people that work here to help make it bearable to show up to work each day
    Looks good on a resume depending on the department

    Kontras

    Micromanagement from the top down
    Company run on an old DOS-based, outdated system
    Have to keep track of every minute of work, tasks, bathroom breaks
    Employees are nothing but numbers to them
    Profit sharing is a joke
    Leadership is in a constant power struggle
    Low pay
    No reviews or raises unless you beg and pester someone for one
    There is either zero communication or 500 emails to take care of one simple task. No in between.
    Heavy favoritism

    Rat an das Management

    There is absolutely no trust in the employees they hire to do the jobs they hired them for. Instead of taking and using the talent that walks in the door, they instead treat everyone like they don't know anything and the only way to complete any task or job is the way they want to pound in to you to do it. Claire Ford and/or Jim Ford literally have their hands on EVERY SINGLE thing that happens in the company...which makes actually getting work done a massive chore. Things that at other companies take hours can take weeks here because Claire is so busy changing commas and periods and directives around that instead of looking at the actual project and trying to get things approved and out the door you spend weeks making changes to this or that until it's back to the original project that was submitted.

    Be sure to actually read the super thick employee handbook they give you...it's an outline for exactly how they will screw you over should you decided to leave the company, need to travel or *gasp* need a day off. You are required to track your time and tasks to the quarter hour and bill it to a charge code. Read an email? Mark it on your time sheet. Talk to a co-worker? Mark it on your timesheet and you might be paid for that 15 minutes. People spend more time each day filling out and keeping track of their timesheets than they do actually getting work done.

    Management spends more time bickering between each other than actually managing anyone.

    There is no trust here. Every piece of furniture has a tracking label on it that you are required to sign your life away for just to use. Down to the trash cans!! And those shirts they hand out...you need to give them back before they will release your last check when you leave the company.

    Oh and don't expect that last check to be anything near what you have calculated it to be. The handbook outlines all the scenarios in which they will be taking your money from you so just expect it. PTO numbers magically change at a whim and never in your favor. And since they are going to be paying you the absolute minimum that they can get away with, it's going to be pennies on the dollar to what you think it should be.

    And please don't believe all the "positive reviews" on here. They tell people in meetings to go online and make positive reviews so they will look good to potential employees.

    Pros

    Room for advancement if you work hard.

    Profit sharing quarterly.

    Looks good on a resume.

    Kontras

    Be careful this is an extremely greedy company. Every company policy is to benefit the company no matter how it effects the employees. They treat their employees like they're disposable. It takes close to 8 years before you get treated like a person. The division manager of Austin will walk right by you, not even look or acknowledge your presence. A simple hello or hand shake would go a long way.

    They have an extremely high turnover rate and it's for good reason.

    If you make a mistake they will take away your profit sharing without warning.

    You are forced to buy tools that are on a mandatory tool list but if they are stolen on a job site they will not reimburse you for them.

    You will travel overnight more than they tell you in you initial interview and have to share a room with another employee. If you bring up the traveling they act like you're lucky to have a job and you knew what you were getting into when you signed the papers.

    Take caution when reading great reviews. I have personally been there when they asked all of their employees to go on this website to boost their ratings.

    Rat an das Management

    Treat your employees like they are valued and you appreciate the hard work that is put in.

    Pros

    -If you perform there is some job security.
    -Opportunities for internal position changes.

    Kontras

    - bottom line is more important than employee retention.
    - micromanagement in every position
    - policies trump common sense
    - uncertain future as owners are old as dirt, have their fingers in every aspect of the business and have no exit strategy.
    - outselling abilities to perform quality work (employees are over worked and underappreciated)
    - compensation is far below similar positions in the industry.

    Rat an das Management

    Reevaluate policies to better match this centuries work environment. Make the Fords retire.
