The starting pay could depend if you're going to go through a temp agency or directly through HONDA. Not sure of the start salary now, but I do know the top pay is well worth the effort.

However if you are not ready to work your arse off and be to work ON time. HONDA is not the place for you. Their attendence policy is the strictest I have ever heard of.

I work at honda. Unless you are hiring into a engineer position or a management position you will have to go through a temp. agency. Their starting pay is somewhere around 10 or 11 dollars a hour.If thats what you want, now would be a good time. They are out-sourcing a lot of the departments to temp agencys and putting the honda associates that have been there a long time on the hardest jobs. So, if you were a temporary worker, you would get a easy job.

That would depend on what type of job you are offerred. Production, engineering, maintenance, or clerical, admin. And yes you can get hired off the street into clerical without going through a temp agency. I did

There is a couple of things here to think about. What position are you applying for? Are you being hired full-time through Honda or a Temp service?(Honda does now have their own temp service) Clerical, Line, or Engineer? Let's say you are going to be a temporary. You will start out at 9 for clerical and 10 for line.(depending on what temp service). Full-time at Honda Clerical will be at 12 and line will be 15-16. Depending on what shift you work. For all of you on here saying be prepared to work you butts off if you are on line. BOOHOO. I work at International Paper and work 12 hour shifts at least 3 days aweek. Making way less then you that have robots to do your heavy lifting for you. Glad to hear that Honda is finally starting to get rid of some of their jobs online. Maybe you guys will finally have to work for what you get paid.

DEpends== I have worked at honda IN ASSEMBLY for over 20 years and have never had a robot do any work for me. Only thing we have are lift arms that lift objects over 20lbs. It is obivious that you have never worked the assembly line these people do more walking,twisting, bending, and manual labor in 1 hour than you probably do in a day. These people earn their money. My daughter worked at International paper she worked 12 hour shifts said it was the easist job she ever had. left for better pay and benefits

For all of you thinking that the Honda line workers deserve their pay. They don't. I worked there as a Temp. Let me explain some stuff to you. Full-time associates in certain areas work their butts off. As far as the assembly line, they find the smallest person to fit into the cars. So what you have to put a tire on a car. OMG that's going to really deserve getting paid 25.00 an hour. NOT.

Bottom line all you complainers, there are plenty of people out there that would love to have your job. If you want to keep it then shut the heck up. If the job is to much for you, then step aside and let someone else have it.

for those of you who say temps get the harder jobs your wrong, they are in the same rotation that everyone else is in their area. Everyone in every area does every job in that area unless they have restrictions (temps included). You say so what if you put a tire onm a car. ITS not 1 tire, I slammed tires for 5 years,job is different depending on which side you are on, you put both tires on plus lug bolts and then shhot lug nuts and either set trim and hand brake cables or put spare tire in back. You do this for 2 hours not just 1 car thats 115 cars a quarter adds up to 330 tires, 3,300 lug nuts, 115 trim, 115 handbrakes set and 115 spare tires In just 2 hours. OOHH don't forget the car is not sitting still you have about 52 seconds for your process. So please don't get on here and act like you know what it is like to work there. These people do earn their money. Those who think different are either jeolous of the ones who work yhere or worked there and couldn't handle it.

I worked at Honda for a very short time. I'm only 5 foot 3, and can say it's not easy for short people either. One of my jobs was putting something into the center section of the car. With my height (or lack of) it was sometimes a stuggle to reach parts of the car. I had to virtually crawl in the car for jobs that someone with longer arms could have easily reached. I had to also do something with the back seat belts that required putting your arm through the back window. With my height, plus the car being a little taller I had to stand on tip toe to reach.

On my rotation I also had a job where I had to crawl into the car, because unlike some I couldn't just lean in, or use the floor as a brace. I had to crawl in and out. Which doesn't sound like much, but jumping in a car doing your job, jumping back out, and being ready for the next car is tough in 45-50 seconds per car. After doing those jobs for a couple hours you feel muscles you didn't even know you had.

I am not ashamed to admit, I could not handle the physical demands that working for Honda requires. Those saying Honda employees don't earn their pay either haven't worked there, or don't know anyone who does. I do to both. I envy their pay, but not what is done to their bodies.

A question for you Bosco. Since working for Honda how many job related injuries or surgeries have you had?
