Brandon Cobb was ready to take the next step in his career when he applied for a process coach position, a position that Cobb believes opens doors for career growth at Ford.
“Investing in my career with Ford is one of my top priorities,” said Cobb. For those looking to advance their career – to team leader, skilled trades, emergency response team, process coach – Ford offers hands-on and in-depth training to prepare employees for the next step.
Cobb, a Port Huron resident, came to Ford with intentions to further his career when he started as an hourly employee in assembly at Dearborn Stamping-East back in 2018. For the last five years, Cobb worked on the press floor there. Today, Cobb works as a process coach on A-crew assembly at Dearborn Stamping-West.
Cobb stays informed about Ford by utilizing different informational platforms. “I enjoy learning as much as I can about the company,” he said. Employees should look to the app BlueOvalNow and the new website dedicated to the U.S. Ford manufacturing team to stay up to date on the latest: Ford | Built Ford Proud.
He was on the lookout for opportunities within the company when he saw the listing for the position on one of the plant monitors. The last 5 years Cobb spent at Dearborn Stamping taught him valuable information and prepared him for the next step in his career. He knew then it was his opportunity for growth.
He submitted his resume and cover letter to the Labor Relations office and soon after became a full–fledged process coach.
