Customer Relations Specialist (Current Employee) – Markham, ON – 8 June 2017
Honda is a great place to work due to the culture. From piers to management, one cane expect friendly smiles and good mornings. Its nice to work for a company that cares for their clients as a typical day at my job is to find ways that Honda Canada can say YES to client vehicle that are OUT OF WARRANTY. - A client calls in with an bill/estimate, and its my job to use all resources to absolve or reduce the client's bill as per their portfolio.
On the other hand, bearing bad news to clients is the hardest part of the job but I have learned to be more personal in my delivery: although warranty is black and white, I do not have to be.
I have nothing bad to say about my role, I still enjoy it to the fullest but job security scares me as per my contract position.
Project Engineer (Current Employee) – Alliston, ON – 21 May 2017
Honda of Canada Mfg is a great place to start your career. The amount of responsibility they give to junior associates is crazy. This is both good and bad. Brings up your experience very rapidly both technically and professionally. Within 2 years of working I was presenting to the president of the company and directing work. By 5 years I had been the project lead for millions of dollars investment. However this destroys your work/life balance. Advancement within the company is difficult due to the politics created by managers just trying to keep their own head above water. Great place for the first bit of your career, but not a place to stay long term.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Alliston, ON – 8 May 2017
Great place for a student contract and for full time employees. I learned a lot about factory life, teamwork and quality. I also learned a lot about time management skills. I was lucky enough to work with a great group of people who took care of me and kept a positive attitude. The hardest part of the job was the repetitiveness and strains it had on the body. I worked in weld and had to Mig weld. The heavy weight of the helmet bad the job difficult to do for a quarter, I found sometimes upper management did not care about the employee's requests, but this is a hard accusation to make since I know they were busy and have a lot of other stuff to deal with. Overall I found my job at HCM to be enjoyable and I would love to work there longer if I could as a student.

Inbound Customer Relations Specialist (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 20 April 2017
Honda Canada was a great work environment but the downside was no benefits. The people I worked with were amazing which made work enjoyable. Management did make sure we had everything we needed but they were not always there and available if we had questions as they were always in meetings.
