    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 Management

    Consider the human factor.

    I worked at Honda full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good. They make a good product but have manufacturing problems they should have resolved by now. Well known name and quality.

    Cons

    Don't ever work in Accounting. Work area may have Carbon Monoxide contamination. Very strict work conditions and structure. Can't miss much work for any reason the first year or you will get fired. Poor training and management communication. People are overloaded in their jobs. Bad moral. Too much stress.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to train people so they have a chance. Don't know what you are doing. Upgrade software. Simplify processes.

    I worked at Honda full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    None. Ohio engineering center is a jail full of idiots.

    Cons

    Bunch of freshly graduate engineering comunityes, with no understanding of vehicles design. They just blindly follow a process created 15 year ago, that is mo longer valid.
    Expect to work 60 hours in 5 day with 40 hours pay.
    Everithing is by the book . And the book is poorly done.
    Management flexibility is zero.
    Forget about the word Promotion.
    Never ever unless your Japanese from Japan.

    Advice to Management

    Get a look on the outside of the carbord box you're living inn.
    Engineers are not slaves. This is why manny leave in 3 years.

    Pros

    Great product, good coworkers. Honda makes an excellent car and it's looking better every year, the technology is really nice and the safety is tops.

    Cons

    The challenge is getting paid... you sell a car and your "gross" (comision) gets cut more and more. They expect 1000 and pay for 10.

    Advice to Management

    You expect too much and don't offer any incentives $$$$

    Pros

    For the type of work the pay and benefits are good

    Cons

    The management is a click, the turn over rate is out of sight (40%) and if your hurt you can count on being let go and 10 % of the employees get hurt. Stay away

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Zero good reasons period. Point blank

    Cons

    To many managers not knowing anything. The overall leadership is terrible. Lying to employees, berating them, making them work after hours illegally without pay, managers yelling in a employees face and blaming them for their mistakes they make. Overall need new management

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Stop changing everything. Realize the issues with the dealership, are with management period. And that you need to hire someone new managment.
