Goin to work for the Blue Oval

Well, If any of ya'll are familiar with Northside ford in Portland, Thats where i'll be workin at next year. All they work on is F250's and up.

Im doing the Ford ASSET program at Mt. hood community college come fall, and part of the deal is we get a quarter in the shop at school, and then a quarter in the dealership working on real world cars/trucks with problems that relate to what I've learned the past quarter.

I'm just curious to see what people's experiance with them is, and if theyre notorious for being bad or good. My other option is either gresham ford (unlikely) or landmark ford (someone there already wants to hire me).

Good for you! I don't know anything about the other two, but I've dealt with Landmark Ford for years, and they are an exceptional dealership. Good luck!

Northside was good to deal with, including the service department, when I bought two large trucks from them.

the company I work for buy's there trucks from Northside Ford and has them serviced there.
Had to haul an 05 E-450 on a lowboy from the coast to Northside to get it fixed right.

I'm not gonna lie, im pretty excited to start working for them. I gotta set up an intervew with the service manager at northside, and maybe landmark. As for as landmark goes, I could walk in there right now and get a job. But im more geared towards the truck side of things when it comes to vehicles.
