AUTOMOTIVE ASSEMBLY LINE WORKER (Former Employee) – Alliston, ON – 7 January 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.

Product Engineer, Engine Group (Current Employee) – Alliston, ON – 8 December 2015
Worked in the product engineering department. Simply ut, it is a pretty amazing place to work. Unfortunately, my contract came to an end. Very friendly and smart people. The potential to learn and grow there is boundless.
Good people, learning opportunities
There tend to be a lot of loopholes to get through
Administrative/Receptionist (Current Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 8 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.
Administration and Resolution Representative (Current Employee) – Markham, ON – 7 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.
Great atmosphere, fun activities
Too many promotions based on who-you-play-games-with
Bilingual Human Resources Leader (Former Employee) – Leader, Toronto – 1 December 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.
Great continuous improvement culture
Management rotation is assigned and not discussed.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 22 October 2015
I was always busy I really liked working with the staff and senior management team They hire a lot of temp and contract workers and are very subjective in who they hire full time There was no job security Lack of job opportunities
Violates ESA by keeping employees as Independent Contractors for over 10 years
Application Support (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 25 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.
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Alliston, ON – 21 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, ON – 22 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.
Honda Associate MRO & Machinery (Current Employee) – Alliston, ON – 17 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.
Fun to work the people, but it is not fun to work with the company anymore
Collector (FT) (Current Employee) – Markham On – 6 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.

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
