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

    Pros

    Steady pay check, stable hours

    Cons

    I worked for Honda for over a year after being there for six months they moved me to another temp service and I never had gotten hired in. After being there for over a year I was let go . No future really no direction or incentive to work harder the pay is not competive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management could try harder to help people instead of using temp services and let them get hired in. I would not recommend this place to a friend

    I worked at Honda full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A great company to be able to move up. There are numerous methods to improve your abilities but you need to find them and work with them.

    Cons

    Normal issues of big companies that treat everyone the same and have the same policies for all levels of employees. Promote just past peoples abilities and never admit that someone got moved to far up.

  7.  

    Good intentions, but slow moving and conservative.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Honda

    Pros

    A genuinely well-intentioned company filled with good people.

    Cons

    Salaries are not competitive. Priorities for hiring are not in line with previous company values. Increasing reliance on contractors. Less focus on retaining core engineering talent, attracting and educating new engineering talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember what made Honda successful. Well engineered product combined with good sales and aftersales support. Exciting product developed by people that care about the product.

    Pros

    The pay is ok. There is a lot of time spent talking to people and fresh air

    Cons

    Having to deal with dishonest people consantly. Managers who are constantly in your pocket. Work crazy hours and don't know if your going to get paid for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the employees more "Spin" programs. Can't just cut invoices on vehicles and expect your good employees to stay

    Current Employee - Production/Assembly in Greensburg, IN

    I have been working at Honda full-time (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.

    Pros

    Money is not too bad and they are flexible with hours.

    Cons

    Not very prefessional, Management is petty and not willing to work with you. Learn on your own kind of environment where they dont know your last name.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take an interest to help employees grow and develop loyalty.
