They will try to own you for 15 bucks an hour. It's hillarious. With that being said, you can imagine the type of people that stuck around long enough to advance in the company and become supervisors... The regular Honda employee's are low class and work like cowards that are scared to lose their jobs. You can tell them to put on an ugly uniform and jump through hoops, like a circus lion, and they'll do it. Although this is amusing to observe, it makes for a poor atmosphere to work in. Ultimately the job is better than nothing but there's greener grass out there...

Unethical and horrible place to work. Lasted a month on b. Uniforms were hardly washed and stunk. The Hard hats were dirty on the inside from unwashed greasy hair. No training and employees subject to verbal abuse by Team leader You learn by getting scolded for not knowing what you weren't told. Lasted a month..Hippie team leader makes racist comments while Supervisor whith booze breath giggles.

Absolutely terrible place to work, team leaders and management are abusive and have no place managing anything, let alone in a factory environment. Management will fail to train you and then make you feel like you are useless when you make a mistake! Team leaders will argue with eachother over who is going to train you which makes you feel unwelcomed and not part of the team. Work is repetitive and you are prone to injury. If you are working on the line you will need to hold it in until break when you can go to the restrooom. An older team leader harasses me every chance he gets aswell as many other people and when the site supervisor is confronted he did nothing to fix the problem. Don’t trust the reviews, i can assure you no associates are writing those and they are clearly being made my management!
Unorganized almost every day, doesn’t wash uniforms

The company does not train you on any job, they do a quick overview and throw you on the floor to figure this out. Every morning they are stressing out trying to give people jobs, the Phoenix office on the floor is so crowded people can’t even get by eachother. They don’t wash or wipe the bump caps, not worrying about the fact there could possibly be lice, dandruff from other people, etc...they hire so many new people but don’t have enough jobs for everyone and end up sending them home without notice. I would advise finding another job.
Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) – Alliston, ON – 12 November 2018
Worked here for nearly two weeks. Incredibly high employee turnover. Everyone leaves. You stand for 10 hours a day inspecting very small car parts. You are treated like you are nothing and you are constantly moved around. Takes nearly a year to get uniforms. Work is easy and pay is good. Boring and tedious.
Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Alliston, ON – 17 September 2018
Great management style. High energy people. Team leaders have extensive experience in the auto and peripheral auto business. Truly committed to solving problems. Good pay and benefits where applicable.
Quality Inspector (Former Employee) – Alliston, ON – 12 June 2018
This company is the absolute worst company to work for. They do not care about health or well being, majority of what they do is illegal. They are a complete joke. The coworkers are great but the team leaders and supervisors (except for 2) are rude and don't care about you at all along with Human resources doesn't care either. AVOID THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS!

Progressive company focus on continuous improvement of processes and use of technology. Opportunity for growth within the company. Exciting platform to be in as they are developing their own software and identifying technologies to streamline workflow and hand this knowledge on to their clients.
Phoenix Quality its looking at the future and shaping the people and services with it. Workers who want to work are growing with the company and it is exciting to see them doing it.
Staff are friendly in this fast paced evolution of quality control.
Progression, Personal Development, Industry leader
Senior Quality Inspector (Former Employee) – Alliston, ON – 13 April 2018
I would say this is a decent company to work for. As far as when I worked there, management was pretty good in the first few months working there but then it deteriorated and was all about micro-management. If you can handle a repetitive job, this is for you. The hours aren't great as it is hard to balance your work and personal life as it is in direct conflict. But you learn to keep your eyes open, be aware of your surroundings, co-ordinate with others in an extremely loud and chaotic environment because it is a factory you are working in. The enjoyable part of the job is probably the co-workers and working as a team.
The hourly wage is decent, management is good in terms of how friendly and approachable they are. Unfortunately a rare few of them due tend to not keep their word and wouldn't hesitate to throw you under the bus if it benefits them. So trust your gut if you find you can't trust them and don't be afraid to look for help in someone else who is also management.
Overall, its not a luxurious job and can be quite rough at times but its decent income and you learn a lot about the importance of quality and many other skills you will eventually acquire as you continue working for this company.
Decent Wage, Good Co-Workers, Learn various skills

Phoenix has a lot of great people working for them through management and team leaders , they often check up on associates to make sure they are okay. The work provided is sometimes slow and the jobs aren't the greatest but they will communicate with you the job and maintain your comfortability in the job environment
Inspector (Former Employee) – Alliston, ON – 19 April 2017
First off I would like to say this is a great place to work.
I found all of my coworkers and supervisors were excellent and helped me with everything I had asked of them and treated me as an equal. I never got the feeling that anyone felt they were better. If you have a problem they are always open to listening.
From the first day I worked I felt very welcomed. I was showed what was needed of me who everyone I would need to report to was and where everything is. The training was very useful as long as you pay attention as anywhere you wont be successful if you don't pay attention yourself you can only be trained as good as you allow yourself to be.
If you do your job great and excel in your job there is a lot of room for growth.
One thing I thought was great was that at most companies you would not see the owner on the floor working like you do here. HARD WORK AND DEDICATION. This company has a big heart.
Overall I would say as the training, communication and welcoming of this company would be five stars.
