    Wish someone had warned me

    Assembly (Current Employee) East Liberty, OH

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

    Cons1) Ignoring long-term temps and hiring off the street is a pathetic, inexcusable practice.
    2) Management appears to be "willfully stupid".

    Advice to Senior ManagementHari Kari.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Terrible Benefits- mostly temp employees NO UNION

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not Good for me.

    Budget Analyst (Former Employee) Greensburg, IN

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Terrible experience

    Engineer (Former Employee) Tallapoosa, GA

    Pros-They clean your laundry for you
    -Honda name looks good on your resume
    -get to smell of ATF everyday
    -Stable job

    Cons-base pay is 20% off of Industry or other OEM's, unless you work ridiculous overtime
    -very strict, not receptive to new ideas (can't even have drinks at the desk!)
    -3-5 years til first promotion, raises are small

    Advice to Senior Management-raise pay
    -promote from within

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Insane.

    Production/Assembly (Current Employee) Greensburg, IN

    ProsIt'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.

    ConsInsane 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 Senior ManagementConsider the human factor.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Terrified

    CRD Executive (Former Employee) Petaling Jaya (Malaysia)

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease 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!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
