    Pros

    good place to start off your career. they have hostels where you can stay and have good employment benefits

    Cons

    very very unprofessional
    Makes you wait 3 months to reject!
    They are not clear about what kind of associates they want

    Advice to Management

    be more professional, do not reject candidates just because they do not have the visa to go to china for the final round interview. thats just pathetic!

  3. Very fast paced, lousy work mates. Bad influence of people

    Pros

    None. Ohio engineering center is a jail full of idiots.

    Cons

    Bunch of freshly graduate engineering comunityes, with no understanding of vehicles design. They just blindly follow a process created 15 year ago, that is mo longer valid.
    Expect to work 60 hours in 5 day with 40 hours pay.
    Everithing is by the book . And the book is poorly done.
    Management flexibility is zero.
    Forget about the word Promotion.
    Never ever unless your Japanese from Japan.

    Advice to Management

    Get a look on the outside of the carbord box you're living inn.
    Engineers are not slaves. This is why manny leave in 3 years.

    I worked at Honda

    Pros

    Marysville is a nice place to ride around.

    Cons

    The company has several problems with being respectfully and Honorable. Being picky and revengfull is not Honorable.

    I got a State Job after I left. I got tired of so many inexperienced personnel running drama. So many people pretend to be running something and in the end it means 5th grade.

    You would think people in there were running NASA. In reality they are rude, crude, uneventful dramatic reality stars.

    The treatment toward US Veterens is sad. Honda should know that America has allowed them to do business here. They can leave tomorrow which is where some of the business already has left and stayed.

    Aloha MEXICO. That's the start of the end for Honda. Hyunda is producing better cars at a cheaper rate. Honda recalls are at a record high and not Hot tempered Manager is going to stop them.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to Japan

    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".

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    Consider the human factor.
