    Pros

    The plant is in Marysville

    Cons

    I am taken by the lack of discipline Honda claims nobody has. I can hear cars and people spouting the mouth from where I live. The Airbag recalls were almost the same issue back in 2011. They knew, they had Airbags but it took somebody from their supplier to get them figured out. Honda has had IPAAR on these same issues, yet they stand around talking about who they think is freshly no abiding to the talk, drama, gossip, and nonsense that is going on around them. Over a million people already have defective cars. Next time somebody calls me for an investigation wanting to see documentation I am showing it to them. I and everybody else is tired of putting in hard work to get these issues taken care of, and Honda just comes of like they knew it all along, like it was a grand plan to let all those defective parts get out, and then take care of them, and tell others how freshly right they are. Get a life, and stop these problems the first time for God sake, it doesn't take the news to know that even if you have a supplier that you must account for every part that leaves your door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm bringing my car to the plant next time it messes up. The Honda 3rd Reich is bringing down Americans now.

    I worked at Honda of America Mfg. full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    For the area, you won't find any better compensation. It is a farming area and if anyone works for another factory, it is likely a Honda supplier. Great parking, olympic pool/fitness center with trainers and massage therapists. Very laid back and low expectations. You get a bonus once a month just for showing up to work everyday. Also profit sharing and stock options. No business attire needed for working ANYWHERE at Honda. The CEO wears the same shirt and pants as the man who puts the floor mats in. There is a plethora of inhouse training, from MS Office, to accounting classes and many thing that will heighten your business acumen. However, trying to get into an off-site training that will look good on your resume is difficult.

    Cons

    Most of the facility is run by "good ole boys". The best education you can have is from the local high school. If you have a bachelors or a masters, your opinion will hardly matter and you will be there for the paycheck. Your manager will likely have a high school diploma, have no idea what a pivot table is, and be divorced because they will do anything management says. They stress family values, but that doesn't amount to quality time with family. Just means they will pay you. Most of the japanese who are there left their families in Tokyo and send their paychecks home. Also, you are stuck wherever you are. It is very hard to move to a different position and IMPOSSIBLE to move to another division.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow cross training to improve schedule flexibility and associate freedom. Reward employees with options for vacation or compensation.
