    I worked at Honda of America Mfg. full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Clean and safe work environment. Bonus pay for Holidays, attendance, and suggestions for improving work place safety.

    Cons

    Temporary employees will get priority to go to first shift, which means bumping you off of first even if your there for 10 + years.

    Advice to Management

    All the employees make the assembly lines work, ensure that they ALL are treated as equals. One department is not more important than the others.

    Pros

    Good pay great benefits. If you do your job and show up to work you won't have any problems. Usually the people that complain don't like to work. Nicest bonuses and family festival usually at cedar point or kings island

    Cons

    Sometimes upper management expects more from associates than what is possible. You have about 50 seconds to complete a process and 55 seconds worth of work. It does eventually get fixed.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your associates about how processes should be run. Maybe say hello every once and awhile also!

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits. Lots of extras (fitness center, car program, etc.). Employees are proud of their products.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be tough. Especially when demand is high.

    Advice to Management

    I understand the management structure being lean but the engineer level could use some more heads. Lots of engineers are working way too many hours.

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

    Pros

    I was positioned at the R&D facility (which has a much better work environment than the plants). The purchasing department here manages suppliers and sourcing strategies. A few hundred Buyers work at the office, along with a few thousand engineers.

    - Decent pay if you take into account you are compensated for OT
    - Nice facilities, including a cafeteria, free onsite gyms, and plenty of parking
    - Work can be very interesting if you like the automotive industry
    - Open office and relaxed work environment
    - A lot of great people; diverse workforce
    - Opportunities for domestic and international travel
    - Plenty of resources if you choose to utilize them
    - Columbus (45 minutes from Marysville) is a great city for both young professionals and families
    - Provided uniforms and laundry make for easy mornings
    - Strong company reputation

    Cons

    Lots of turnover. It's a good place for young professionals to get work experience, but many end up hitting a wall and leaving.

    Some of the processes are tedious and outdated. This means much of your time could be spent doing busy work rather than working on future sourcing strategies.

    Your experience depends a lot on what desk and managers you are assigned to. Some are great, some not so much.

    While the location is peaceful, the commute can be tiring if you want to live in Columbus/Dublin.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your associates, find out why people leave.

    Update processes and systems.

    Improve classroom and hands-on training methods
