Student engineer

May - August 2018 • Russells Point, OH

What I liked

Very immersive experience, I learned alot about operations planning as well as routine facility maintenance. I got pushed out of my comfort zone often so that i could try new things and improve my abilities.

What I wish was different

I wish there was more one on one time between students and mentors to really learn as much as possible as opposed to focusing on how much work could be completed by the student.

Advice

This co-op is a great look into the automotive field and will really make it clear if the position is right for you or not. Very fast paced, very results driven expectations and high standards. Its really a great time to grow as an individual and prove to your self what yorue capable of.

Auto Warranty Operations Intern

June - August 2019 • Torrance, CA

What I liked

Working at Honda was an amaing experience and I was able to work with people who loved doing what they did. I was able to learn more about how such a large corporation works and network with others who have been working in the automotive industry for a long time. Not only did I gain valuable work experience and knowledge, but I was also able to participate in company activities that showed Honda greatly appreciates it's employees.

What I wish was different

I wish I could've been able to spend more time in this internship because the time truly did fly by.

Advice

My best advice would be to network as much as you can. If you have the opportunity to actually work with individuals in your industry, there is no better way to network. You can establish a personal connection with them and gain valauable insights from others on what would help you to be the most successful in your future endeavors.

Being to learn how to clean cars and learn how to better care for my car with checking tire pressure and overall health of the car.

Advice

Listen to your superiors and if it is not clean do it again because the people selling the car will bring it right back to you.

Customer Service Representative

June - September 2020 • Torrance, CA

What I liked

The staff and management were very friendly and caring. They were willing to help me find a new position when my old department had to relocate

What I wish was different

I wasn’t made aware at that time that my department would relocate and they still expected me to commute an hour away. I wish they would’ve accommodated and not have me come in until I found a different position

Advice

Test Tech Admin

August - December 2021 • Raymond, OH

What I liked

I enjoyed the being able to do computer work as well as hands on mechanical work on the vehicles in the shop. The work was interesting and kept me engaged.

What I wish was different

I wish I was able to work in a team on my project. My main project was very independent which was interesting and new to me but I enjoy collaboration.

Advice

Ask questions. You will have lots of questions that come up in your head and you will think to not ask them. No such thing as a bad question.

Mechanical Engineer Co-op

August - December 2021 • Raymond, OH

What I liked

I was given ample responsibilities. I was trusted with a large individual project, and I never felt micromanaged throughout the process.

What I wish was different

I wish I had gained more exposure to everyday responsibilities of the various test groups. My project had little similarity - though relevant - to other projects occurring.

Advice

Speak up. The size of Honda can be very intimidating, as it was for me, but the more you speak with and build relationships with your coworkers, greater opportunities will come your way.

Tire Technician, Valet, Greeter

June - August 2020 • O'Fallon, IL

What I liked

I enjoyed the ability to safely interact with customers during the pandemic, whether I was driving them or conversing as I did rotation/pressure checks. My coworkers and bosses were all very good.

What I wish was different

While most of my daily tasks were mundane and easy, every so often I was given an unpleasant task that did not seem to fit within my job description...such as cleaning up oil spills from a busted engine or cleaning bathrooms because of a fired janitorial staff.

Advice

I would encourage anyone to take a job like this. While I would not characterize this job as "physical labor", I was always on my feet and active. While some tasks were unpleasant they gave me an appreciation for those workers that do these jobs 40 hours per week or more.

Customer Accounts

May - August 2019 • Elgin, IL

What I liked

I got to work with people I already knew, which made it fun to go into work. They held many competitions amongst the employees for rewards which kept me motivated to perform my best.

What I wish was different

My hours were not the same everyday, and I would’ve liked them to be.

Advice

It is not an easy job. Many came and left within a week. You had to talk on the phone with a lot of angry people, so you have to be able handle people yelling at you.

Engine Line Engineering Co-op

January - July 2019 • Anna, OH

What I liked

I like all the resources the company had to offer. There were suppliers located all over the plant and a large machine shop department that often made the parts I requested.

What I wish was different

I wish things were a little more laid back. Sometimes the seriousness of the company ruined my motivation to complete projects.

Advice

Honda takes their company very seriously. So if you're very passionate about cars and trucks, go for it, if not, you may want to check something else out.
