I have been working at Honda Aircraft Company full-time (More than a year)
Safe work environment, good clean work environment, friendly work atmosphere, hardworking pays off, PLENTY of room for advancement
A lot of hours for pay! Cold AC! Floor is so clean it's slippery! Long wait list for people who order planes! Excellent benefits that are probably 2nd to none once you get converted to an associate! Work-life is not as life altering as you read from other people. More OT than not is volunteer! Senior Management could use some changes, however, we are building planes and delivering planes to new customers! Just because the Senior Management doesn't run this Company like the hourly employees tell them too, that doesn't mean that we're heading for Bankruptcy! Although Honda has been around for most of our lifetime, Honda Aircraft Company has not! We are a New company that is experiencing growing pains! And most of the hourly employees have never had any experience with any type of management that would make them understand what we're going through. You may read this and think I must be in Management! Well, I'm not! I'm an hourly employee that owned a company for 22 years and I've been through the growing pains. I do love my job there. I work hard everyday and I try to make a difference by trying to make Honda Better. Most are not and Management knows who is and isn't there for the betterment of the Company. You say, I'm not there for Honda, I'm there for myself! If your employed there and you receive a paycheck for your work that YOU AGREED TO, then you should better be there there for the betterment of the company, or we don't want you!!!!
Advice to Management
Lean more on the people actually doing the work and Just as new hires are told "leave your Egos at the door"
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Honda Aircraft Company (Greensboro, NC) in June 2017.
Contacted by recruiter. Hour or so phone panel interview with very pleasant participants HACI handled all travel arrangements. I interviewed on-site a week or so later. It was a true pleasure to see Justin (Recruiting Specialist) and James' (Sr. Manager) tenacious efforts at expediting me through the process, due to my own time constraints. The entire interview team was extremely polite and I felt it went very well. While the position was ultimately filled internally, I greatly appreciated the the level of effort I saw from HACI during the entire process. Many thanks to the entire team for a pleasant experience.
