More resources required
Administration and Resolution Representative (Current Employee) –  Markham, ON7 December 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

Honda was a very productive place to work for, and taught me a great number of skills.
Contract Labourer (Former Employee) –  Alliston, ON18 January 2017
a typical work day varied from customer request and demands, I was expected to be able to switch different types of jobs from assembly, quality control and job replacement for sick or injured co-workers.

I've learned a number of different things while working with Honda of Canada MFG. I learned a great number of different skills and uses of tools and machines, Time management and Working with a large amount of co-workers and team members.

The management at Honda of Canada MFG. was outstanding, managers were always there to assist me with any questions or concerns I may have had. and were always willing to teach me different jobs and tool use's to help grow the company further and in fulfilling work orders.

The co-workers at Honda were helpful and willing to help me learn the jobs that were required of me. And took the time to make sure that jobs were learned and completed in a timely and professional manner.

The hardest part of my job I would have to say, was to be able to switch jobs at a moments notice and to be able to lift heavy and strenuous parts and supplies for a long period of time.

The most enjoyable part of my job was finishing are large order of vechicles before the requierd time given. And getting recognition in completing a job well done.
Pros
gym memberships, summer BBQ's, holiday parties
Cons
working long hours during the night shift, and required to switch jobs jobs at a moments notice.

Always a smiling place
Administrative/Receptionist (Current Employee) –  Red Deer, AB8 December 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.

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!

Acts as a consultant (Former Employee) –  Alliston, ON9 December 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

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

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
