I worked at Honda

Pros

Honda R&D has a GREAT co-op program. Well, "had" a great co-op program. Word has it that they've ditched it in this automotive market downturn. I had a great experience there and learned a lot about mechanical engineering.

Cons

The co-op program is now gone. If they reinstate it, I would HIGHLY recommend applying. But the location is terrible. Ohio? C'mon.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring back the co-op program! It's valuable!

    Overall a good place to start off, but the "revolving doors" are an indication that this is not necessarily a place you

    I have been working at Honda

    Pros

    Honda is an amazing company to work for. You can learn a lot from the expertise of those above you, and there is much to learn that you can either use at Honda or at another company to bring real value to their organization. The people are generally very supportive and see each other as "teammates" instead of opponents. This is why such quality product comes from this R&D center.

    Cons

    The pay is pretty marginal (even though they claim that it is competitive). Growth can seem slow if you don't embody exactly what your superiors want, but they don't make what they want very clear necessarily.

    Work can sometimes be very overwhelming, and if it weren't for the paid overtime, the high expectations that are put on the associates could never be met.

    I worked at Honda

    Pros

    You can make decent money selling used cars. New car pricing is very competitive, and most dealers pay a "mini" averaging $100-$150 on new car sales with number bonuses...10 units sold, 15 units sold, etc. You have set hours, but things are usually pretty flexible because you are not punching a clock. If you enjoy selling, and can show true concern for your customers, you can have a good career in auto sales.

    Cons

    Believe it or not, when I started in car sales, there was no internet. No Edmunds,Costco,Consumer Reports websites. These sites make it very easy to price shop and get reliability and ownership feedback on any make or model car. As consumers, we have all become very smart shoppers and want the best price, best interest rate etc. Downside? You will rarely make a decent commission on a new car. You must go over the car completely with the customer, and they will do a survey with the manufacturer. If they didn't like the Finance Manager for instance, it may reflect on you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your salestaff is more important than the customer. Treat them with respect and dignity, and they will do what ever you ask.
