customer retention associate (Current Employee) –  Markham, ONJanuary 21, 2016
Honda Canada is like a university campus where you get paid to learn, play and grow. You have a soccer field, basket ball court, regular biking events, ice cream days and what not.
Associates are friendly, generous with their time and helpful.
The company is boasting all-time sales records across the many segments it is involved in.
The management shares open space with their associates which fosters dynamic interaction.
The hardest part of the job is to get your foot in the door. Once you are in, work smart and move upwards one step at a time.
Good luck

The company is fantastic, departmental management not so much
NA (Former Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ONJanuary 21, 2016
Working for Honda as a company has been wonderful. They really treat employees well and offer competitive benefits and perks.
However, I am not alone in my experience with terrible departmental management. HR just seems to look the other way. I don't know if it is true of all departments - but I feel like I hear the same tune in every department.
Pros
Amazing perks and benefits
Cons
Poor departmental management with bully culture

Nice place to work, be prepared to sweat!
AUTOMOTIVE ASSEMBLY LINE WORKER (Former Employee) –  Alliston, ONJanuary 7, 2016
Great place to work but the work is back breaking. Not what you think when you hear factory work, but believe me it is very hard work, not for the weak! Great place though, nice people. Short breaks but paid overtime over 8 hrs so I guess that makes up for it.
Pros
Stability
Cons
Low pay for entry level for the work done

Acts as a consultant (Former Employee) –  Alliston, ONDecember 9, 2015
Shift work in a factory may seem that attractive but Honda treats their associates like family. Getting a full time position is too long of a process, a 4 year contract has to be completed.
Pros
Great pay
Cons
Rotating shift work

Always a smiling place
Administrative/Receptionist (Current Employee) –  Red Deer, ABDecember 8, 2015
The best part of working at Honda, was the people. Everyone was willing to help everyone whether it was other staff, or customers that belonged to other sales. You couldn't go on without a day without having a huge smile on your face, or someone making you laugh.

More resources required
Administration and Resolution Representative (Current Employee) –  Markham, ONDecember 7, 2015
It is not a bad place to work at. There are plenty of activities to make Associates feel at ease and comfortable. However, the pressure can be difficult to bear. Oftentimes, there are not enough resources allocated to worker to do their jobs properly. It seems like some managers prefer to tighten the belts and expect Associates to perform and get better results with less resources. This has been having a big impact on the department I am in. Also, an idea meant to improve processes and procedures can take up to three years to be implement. Too many red tapes to go through.
Pros
Great atmosphere, fun activities
Cons
Too many promotions based on who-you-play-games-with

Bilingual Human Resources Leader (Former Employee) –  Leader, TorontoDecember 1, 2015
Great culture with solid total quality management philosophy. Consistent approach when it comes to deliver team results. Learned a lot about continuous improvement. Since it is a flat organization, there is rotation of management team every 9 months.
Pros
Great continuous improvement culture
Cons
Management rotation is assigned and not discussed.

Bilingual Customer Relations (Former Employee) –  Markham, ONOctober 26, 2015
A great place to work. You will definitely not get board of trying to memorize all the products they have.

They also make Robots... ASIMO, I believe this is the only car company that make robots capable of easily going up stairs and kicking soccer balls and opening doors.

Oh, did I mention that they make some of the most reliable cars!

Violates ESA by keeping employees as Independent Contractors for over 10 years
Application Support (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONJuly 25, 2015
Managers tell employees they will NEVER become one of them.
Employees are kept as Independent Contractors with outsourcing companies, they never receive benefits, vacation, pension, overtime, while performing as an employee and not a business, typically African Americans or immigrants are taken advantage of in this way.

Not what is used to be
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Alliston, ONJuly 21, 2015
Everyone starts out as contract and making 17 a hour, but it will take you forever to become full time and then it will take you about another 25 years to get up to full rate. Never enjoyed going to work especially when person beside me was making 33 a hour to do the same job I was the only difference they got in the company before they changed all the guidelines
