Competitive and hard work

Salesperson (Former Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

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

Prosyou can make a LOT of money very fast if you are willing to work for it. Commission based = the harder you work the better the results in your pocket.

ConsVery competitive which equals to fighting amongst your coworkers for those customers. Hours are very long. Lots of outdoor work. requires a certain personality

Wish someone had warned me

Assembly (Current Employee)
East Liberty, OH

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

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

Quite an "interesting" place to work..

Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Lisle, IL

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

ProsGood compensation in the "busy" months (December and April through August).
Personable coworkers and friendly atmosphere
Excellent customers who will give you referrals if they like you.

ConsLong hours, long days. Some days up to 12 hour shifts with 30 minute break or less
Very little money made in the "slow" months (winter is rough!)
Angry customers every once in a while
No room for growth into a new position - just growth in your own position

Advice to Senior ManagementBe a leader to your employees, not just a boss. Show them where they can improve and let them know what they're doing well at. Only way to grow is with guidance!

Honda has lost it's mojo

Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
Raymond, OH

I have been working at Honda full-time for more than 5 years

ProsVery secured job. Having Honda helps with being on your resume

ConsNo job growth potential, Doesn't give employees a good discount for cars like other car companies. Too many hours.

Advice to Senior ManagementBecome new technology leaders than followers. Get rid of Acura

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

Requires great commitment

Engineering Technician (Current Employee)
Raymond, OH

I have been working at Honda full-time for more than 10 years

Pros-Job security. This company will take care of you in that aspect as long as you take care of it.
-Pay. The pay is good...not great but good. Sure you could make more in Michigan but if you want to stay in central Ohio, the pay is good for this area.

ConsHours. As others have stated the hours can be long and brutal. Also, it is very hard to plan your personal life with these schedules.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou already know what is wrong, have the courage to address it and fix it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
