More resources required
Administration and Resolution Representative (Current Employee), Markham, ONDecember 7, 2015
Pros: Great atmosphere, fun activities
Cons: Too many promotions based on who-you-play-games-with
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.

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

AUTOMOTIVE ASSEMBLY LINE WORKER (Former Employee), Tottenham, ONJune 22, 2015

Very hard job, will wreck your body due to repetitiveness. Company has started paying less each year, to the point where it is now not worth working there for what they pay. Good stability though, and workers were great with fun atmosphere. Nice clean work environment. Short breaks.

Stable job but no growth oppurtunities
Honda Associate MRO & Machinery (Current Employee), Alliston, ONJune 17, 2015
Pros: Steady job
Cons: Little to no growth
This is a steady job, typical 9-5. You look after almost everything under your accounts with very little or no support from managment. These positions should be called Account Managment with some speciallity; However, the employees are often under rated and is considered an "Associate" with minimum salary and little oppurtunity to grow.

Fun to work the people, but it is not fun to work with the company anymore

Cons: Company not able to keep the talent people, Company used to be listening to valuable opinions but not any more, very slow on job promotion
- handling delinquent accounts through negotiation with customers on payment arrangements
- Customer centric focus kind of collection - to bring customer finance and life style back on track through different financial tools or options.
- Doing skip tracing and arrange repossession
- Colleagues are mostly very opened mind for new implementation and challenges
- Company is changing objective from a #1 profitable company to a #1 company that can serve Canadian
- The hardest part of the job is to compromise with the management system. The management is not able to deliver the new objective of the company. Their newly added implementations are not helping the situation, but they become burden of the operation. In terms of Collections, delinquency level is raising, work is overload but not delivering value, company even cut head counts during this difficult moment. These numbers with full of discrepancy rectified on the system becomes a challenge to workers.
- The most enjoyable part of the job is most of the colleagues are quite supportive and with high spirit.

Bilingual Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Toronto, ONApril 14, 2015
Pros: Great people, dedicated and smart.
Cons: Room for advancement limited.
Typical day was never typical. No day was every the same. What needed to be done was done and there was little micro managing. I learnt and was encouraged to trust my judgment on what needed to be done and to do it. Listening, using common sense and being pre-emptive with what would be needed to help not only the department, company and customers was encouraged.
For a call centre environment the people had access to a huge amount of information and were supported in their decision making abilities. Fun, nice and supportive environment.
The hardest part of the job was was struggling to get all aspects/departments of the company to be in the same page in terms of problems, concerns and solutions. Often felt like we were fighting against each other to achieve the same goal.
