    Honda of America Mfg., Inc. Assembly Equipment Engineer

    Current Employee - Engineering Staff in East Liberty, OH
    Current Employee - Engineering Staff in East Liberty, OH

    I have been working at Honda of America Mfg. full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best part about working for Honda are the health benefits. Also, it is a good place to work if you are a hands on type of person. The associates are not unionized so there are very little restrictions as far as what you can and cannot do.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges of working in the manufacturing plants at Honda is that production associates are promoted to engineering positions. This is difficult for degreed engineers because these associates are not held to the same standards, but yet they are given the same title and compensation. Also, engineers are treated the same or worse than the production associates. They are required to keep the sleeves of their uniforms rolled down at all times, keep breaks to 10 minutes and lunches to 30, cannot wear coats/jackets inside the facility even if they are company issued, there is little opportunity for advancement, wages are low, engineers are required to work the line when man power is low, vehicle purchase program is a joke (about 10% discount), etc... it goes on and on.

    I worked at Honda of America Mfg. as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Honda actually cares about each one of their workers, the leadership I had in my department was providing me with knowledge outside of just doing my current job but assisting me in acquiring my dreams and goals. Honda employees are very enjoyable and easy to talk to about ideas despite some of them being difficult to implement

    Cons

    A lot of upper management have become accustom to the way things are, instead of fighting against the norm to implement changes that could drastically improve systems! I feel Honda has gotten a bit dull in the design of their cars and are afraid to step outside the box and offer exciting models! Loosing their way in what made Honda Great!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose sight of the core values of Honda! A lot of major issues between Honda's corporations goes unseen, hurting the growth between networks!

    Pros

    Interns/Co-ops get to work on many different projects related to the assembly line. You get a lot of exposure to Honda's manufacturing methods. Coworkers were great.

    Cons

    They had some bad past experiences with co-ops and didn't have very high expectations. You have to prove that you really want to learn something from working there.

    I have been working at Honda of America Mfg. as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay. Up until recently, management had a strong attitude that the front line worker was key to success. They were given the tools they needed, listened to, and respected.

    Cons

    Lately, decision are made secretly and not shared.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what is going on in Japan Operations. It has gotten scary in the last ten months!

    I worked at Honda of America Mfg. as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    The chance for overtime is good, way too much at times.

    Cons

    Dumb management, inadequate equipment, teasing temp workers with quick in hire when the reality is that it takes years to remotely have a chance to be a employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to people who work on the plant floor and actually see the day to day activities. Just because you want to get your buddies in doesn't mean it's right for business.

    Pros

    Plenty of good people working here. Work is fast paced and varied. In present economy there are not many better jobs.

    Cons

    1) Hiring off the street and ignoring long-term temps is a pathetic inexcusable practice.
    2) Plenty of worthless people working here too.
    3) Management is worse than stupid. Worse than stupid? Yes. They do it on purpose!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe try a different profession?

    Pros

    Lots of individual decision making, lots of responsibility and chances to make decisions.

    Cons

    Large office, no much chance for promotion, very manufacturing orientated workplace. Mid level management doesn't do much, more babysitting than actually responsibility, which is passed onto lower level associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More incentives, more reason to do a "better" job, not promoted because of how long you've sat in chair rather how much you've accomplished.
