    I worked at Honda of America Mfg. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice pay even for a temp. Air conditioning in summer. Easy jobs that do not cause strain on your body. Get to rotate jobs every two hours so you are not doing the same job all day.

    Cons

    Hard to get hired in. 30 day lay off after two years of being a temp. Might get called back, might not.

    Advice to Management

    I really never had an issue with managrment. Everyone was nice!

    Honda really cares about all of their associates and strive to prove that on a daily base as well ad all of their customers as well! A great company to work for!

    Cons

    One of the con's are the family's that get broken apart either due to the extra marital affairs or the fact that you are required to work B shift for so many years before ever getting A shift!

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work here is because of the diverse employee network. I was able to meet someone new daily throughout the plant.

    Cons

    A major downside of working here is that you may be placed in an area where you will grow tired of quickly.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to offer because the management was great here at Honda of America Mfg. Although, it was different

    Pros

    If you're a young engineer - especially one without a family - it's a great place to go and work a ton of overtime and get paid for it. They have recently introduced newer technology in both the manufacturing and design areas, which is exciting.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is horrible. Working at Honda is a lifestyle, not a job or career. If you have children in school - be accustomed to missing events and missing holidays with your family.

    Advice to Management

    Try to find a way to better balance work and family life with exempt associates. Often times, the hourly production workers are much better 'taken care of' than management / technical staff. There has recently been a push - especially within HAM - to reduce overhead manpower. That is understandable, but the methods for doing so are leading to a culture where those who you don't want to leave (the younger, more efficient staff) are leaving and those you don't want to stay (the more experienced, more costly, less effective staff) are staying.

    Pros

    Team-focused environment, wearing a uniform every day saves time, saves money, and allows all associates to be treated equally, ample break time

    Cons

    pay structure is very flat, not a lot of advancement opportunities, associates tend to get 'stuck' in certain departments

    Advice to Management

    employees should be promoted based on merit, not only on length of employment, pay structure should not be as flat to encourage associates' performance

    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 Management

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