    I have been working at Honda of America Mfg. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is great for someone who does not have a college education. There are amazing health benefits provided at a very low cost to the associate. There’s endless opportunity for advancement once your first year is up!

    Cons

    You start on their second shift and cannot change shifts until seniority allows it. There’s no set time on when you will be eligible to work during the day!

    Pros

    Great people, very responsible company policies.

    Cons

    Sort of a cult like mentality. People here love to drink the company Kool-Aid. Hard to explain unless you've been there. Learn to love the phrase "I bleed Honda red" or some variant of this...

    Advice to Management

    Calm down and change w/ the times. If you want to recruit the current generation, you will have to relax a little!
