Questions for Applicants with a Driver License

Note: The majority of our employees are required to have a current driver license. The accident record and conviction record will be a determining factor in obtaining, as well as maintaining, employment with Ford’s. Should the accident/conviction record not meet the on-going standard established by our insurance carrier, employment will not be considered for applicants or continued for current employees. It is the responsibility of the employee to notify the company of any accidents involving motor vehicles as well as any traffic convictions. Failure to do so can result in loss of employment. If properly notified by the employee and an available position is open that does not require a driver’s license, the employee may be considered for that position.
