    Assembly Worker Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Honda of America Mfg. (Columbus, OH) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was hired through a third party (Adecco Agency). Once you tell the agency you are interested, they set you up with a given day and time to come to their office. Their office is located right by the Honda plant. Once you arrive at the office you are put in a small classroom with about 30 other new applicants. Each person is sat down at a computer with a notepad and a pen.

    The staff introduces themselves and begins orientation. At the begining everyone goes through the steps of fill out needed paperwork together for necessary background checks, tax information, and other legal documents. From there the agency then explain what is expected of you for the given job. Then after that, you were then asked to take a monitored and timed exam. The exam was split up in 6 sections which involved math equations, radio dial questions on work behavior, and 3 different factory machine simulations. The overall test was about 2 hours and the interview in total was about 6 hours long. But after this you are quite done.

    Once you were finished with the exam, the agency would send you to the Honda plant's medical center where you take your last exam which consist of a drug test and a series of physical tests to determine if you are healthy enough to preform your job. (The job itself is very physically demanding. You are expected do many small physical tasks in repetition for periods as long as 2 hours, so Honda requires all new hires to take this exam to learn of any pervious injuries you have beforehand and help place you in an area that will prevent irritating any old injury. This is actually incredibly rare to see in any manufacturing plant. Honda is the only manufacturer where they are very focused on your health and well-being. Most manufacturing plants don't even acknowledge these factors and you are thrown directly on the production line with out question or any placement based on you and your abilities! In my personal experience it is a huge deal! So if you have past injuries, tell them! It is for your own benefit!) Many of these small tests consisted of muscle endurance such as bending over and screwing a bolt and a washer together for 2 minutes straight, or flipping small objects over in a certain order under a minute. The most common issue that I saw with all my fellow applicants was blood pressure. (TIP: If you have a high blood pressure, you will be sent home and you will have to retake ALL the tests again AFTER a 90 day waiting period!)

    Overall, all those planning on apply for this job, do not plan anything later that day. Between the orientation, the placement test, and the added physical exam later that day, you will be kept busy the entire day (9-5).

    Supply Chain Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Honda of America Mfg. (Marysville, OH) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Initial contact by Honda recruiter who was extremely professional and candid about low starting salary. In person interview in Marysville by team of three managers who were well prepared, courteous and professional. It was an overall pleasant process. I felt respected and listened to by the hiring manager but the other team members acted skeptical as if I were over selling my experience. The recruiting team at Honda is quite good.

    Interview Questions

    • All interview questions were behavioral based. The interviewers listened closely and took good notes. They asked the follow up question for outcome/results. Example: tell me about a time that you disagreed with your boss.   Answer Question

    Software Engineering Co-op Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Honda of America Mfg. in March 2016.

    Interview

    Essentially, I applied back in October of 2015 and it was a very long process. First you get an email for a pre-screen and they ask basic questions about yourself and a few essay questions. Then you get a few emails saying are you still interested. Later then in March they gave me a phone call to set up an interview over the phone. This phone call was the most awkward interview I ever had and the reason is because it was a conference phone call on speaker with 5 other people asking 7 questions total. All behavioral questions but easy. Then what happened was they forwarded my profile to another department in Ohio which deals with Cyber Security and they told me that they were also interested and so they decided to interview me but never happened. I get an email days later after no reply for having an interview in Ohio for cyber security and instead an offer from Indiana for a CO OP. Originally I applied for an internship. Let me just say that the structure of HR needs to be clear which was very upsetting. They had me thinking the whole time I was going to Ohio. Anyways 7 behavioral/scenario based questions and nothing else with 5 different hiring managers in one interview over the phone.

    Apparently pay is based off of the amount of credits so if you're wondering how much people make at this firm it is very fair in pay for college students because most companies only pay a certain amount to everyone interning. They give you housing and even a car so don't worry about travel and living accommodations.
