    I have been working at Honda as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    There are some very nice, very hard-working people there. Pay is not good, but it's the best around in this lousy economy

    Cons

    1) Ignoring long-term temps and hiring off the street is a pathetic, inexcusable practice.
    2) Management appears to be "willfully stupid".

    I worked at Honda as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    umm...thinking. Plant closed on Christmas and 4th of July is about it.

    Cons

    Mandatory 6 days a week. 10+ hour shifts. Very low pay compared to rest of country. Most people try to get a job there in Lincoln , Al because its the only job around,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire less temps and more perm employees. Give them decent family time. Your employees can only survive on OT.

    I worked at Honda full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good. They make a good product but have manufacturing problems they should have resolved by now. Well known name and quality.

    Cons

    Don't ever work in Accounting. Work area may have Carbon Monoxide contamination. Very strict work conditions and structure. Can't miss much work for any reason the first year or you will get fired. Poor training and management communication. People are overloaded in their jobs. Bad moral. Too much stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to train people so they have a chance. Don't know what you are doing. Upgrade software. Simplify processes.

    I have been working at Honda full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It's a paycheck-average pay, but not worth the insane pace you have to keep up with. The only good reason to work here is for medical benefits.

    Cons

    Insane pace of production line. You literally do not have the time to wipe sweat from your brow, much less get a drink of water-even when the fountain is only 10 feet away. I honestly believe, because of the speed of the line, they dont't care if you live or die. Yet some people have jobs where they spend half their time leaning on car hoods and talking. I see almost half the people on these hectic lines-who are at least 50 years old. And then, they disrupt your family life-by rotating your shift every 2 weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the human factor.

    I worked at Honda as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Good trainings and Japanese working methods. Ichikiwa Diagrams and PDCA's, you have helped me a lot.

    Cons

    Stress working environment and people don't think out of the box and follow paper rules & regulations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please think out of the box and do not sit and not listen to only your opinion. Sometimes lower staffs can have brilliant info's aswell. Listen up!
