Management rotation is assigned and not discussed.

Bilingual Customer Relations (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON26 October 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, ON25 July 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, ON21 July 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, ON22 June 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.
Pros
Stability
Cons
Hard on body, pay

Stable job but no growth oppurtunities
Honda Associate MRO & Machinery (Current Employee) –  Alliston, ON17 June 2015
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.
Pros
Steady job
Cons
Little to no growth

Fun to work the people, but it is not fun to work with the company anymore
Collector (FT) (Current Employee) –  Markham On6 June 2015
- 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.
Pros
Lot of employee appreciation activities ex: free lunch, gift card award, movies, blue jays tickets...etc, Provided career planning, Company able to hired a lot of talent people
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

A fast paced fun atmosphere
Bilingual Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON14 April 2015
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.
Pros
Great people, dedicated and smart.
Cons
Room for advancement limited.

Excellent employer, provided many opportunities for advancement.
Senior Buyer (Former Employee) –  Alliston, ON19 December 2014
The company was very family driven as they expected strong teamwork in return for a good income and strong benefit package. The targets were very demanding but fair. Everyone was treated equally with a one citizen policy, each person in the company wore the same uniform and you were expected to treat all with respect. They had a strong sense of safety and went to extremes to ensure a safe workplace.
Pros
Great benfits, safe workplace, fair salary and good feedback on performance.
Cons
Very large organization, easy to feel lost. Cultural differences sometimes hard to understand.
