Controls Engineer

May - August 2018 • Chicago, IL

What I liked

I appreciated the experience they gave me to not only understand the manufacturing process but also taught me the importance of talking to people and connecting with them especially if they aren't salary people. The union people are just as smart as the salary people in their own way. Ford is not only a car business but a peoples business.

What I wish was different

I wish I had a little more guidance however, it taught me to be more independent and look for things to improve rather than wait for management to give me a certain project to do.

Advice

Meet the people of the company from the union line workers to the plant manager. Its a people's business first then a car business
