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

    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 have been working at Honda of America Mfg. as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Honda provides a mentor who thoroughly trains you in a realistic position solving problems and enhancing the company with true deliverables.

    Cons

    Placement is determined by the talent management staff through the co-op program (interns do not apply for a specific assignment).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be flexible with co-ops: when I arrived my mentor realized where my talents were and gave me specific tasks where I could be challenged and find success. A rigid assignment would not have been nearly as beneficial for myself or my team.

    Upper management (SE + AM and above) shuts themselves off to lower staff. Private meetings and secret agendas

    I worked at Honda of America Mfg. full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    lean culture, respect for all employees - uniforms for everyone including CEO.
    good products and strong flexible manufacturing processes. 2 weeks of plant shutdown every year for added vacation time.

    Cons

    all employees must be considered with equal respect which causes some friction with the manufacturing associates versus office associates. work schedule is not flexible, no sick days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to find talent in your team as the jobs (constraints) may not show case all potential talent for individuals.

    Current Employee - Assembly Associate
    Current Employee - Assembly Associate

    I have been working at Honda of America Mfg.

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits. Overtime pay. You always know what your pay will be because everyone makes the same amount of money. Uniforms. No need to ruin your own clothes.

    Cons

    Recently a lot of overtime on weekends. 30 minutes overtime on week days. Equipment breakdowns. Employes who do subpar work make the same amount of money as excellent workers. Whiners get off of the hard jobs and the hard workers have to pick up the slack. Assembly is extremely hot in the summer. Uniforms do not breathe.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people who do the processes before changing the way things are done. All plants should have the same standars. If one plant requires sleeves to be down and snapped, they all should. Get cooler uniforms.
