If you are looking for a good book on Honda manufacturing and suppliers, pick up a copy of "Power by Honda", not a bad read. However, it would be about 4-5 years old now.

Hey, Kid, I think it's really neat that you are here for us! Thanks!

BTW, are you getting the Ridgeline or a different Honda?
I think he said he was getting an S2K if I'm not mistaken!!

Nice color choice !! But hey im partial too :D Thanks Carolina, In my internet searches for a picture of the plant I had come across a LOT of Honda dirty laundry of worker law suits and unsafe conditions. Have to say I was very suprised to see that but then again I wouldnt know as I dont work there. Kid may be able to give a first hand look at what its like.

Way I look at it...with no union to defend the people trying to work the system and getting fired...they try to fight themselves. Very few people ever have any sort of case...and VERY rarely does anyone actually win. I find Honda great to work for...work my time then go home and enjoy the rest of my day :D

I vote for a raise and promotion for the Kid. No matter what he does now, he's a geat ambassador for Honda, from the inside. It takes guts in an online forum to stand up and say "hey, I build those and I'm proud!" And then to give invaluable insights (from someone who actually knows what's really going on).

I haven't read all the Kid's posts, but from what I've seen he's a proud Honda employee, and that in itself speaks volumes (to me).

I'll second that, R3. Either a raise or a heck of a discount on that S2000. I have read all of his posts and he lends credibility to this forum.

Well thanx for all the compliments guys/gals...i'll definitly take you up on that beer :D I am getting a good deal on the s2k...but not any better than anyone else working there can. Wish the people of this forum were my bosses...i'd be able to afford both the s2k and an RL with all the money and discounts i'd be getting. I just have no place for people that will do absolutely to work as little of there 30 years as they can...I have to work it and so should they. Keep in mind I have no problem with people taking time off work if is need be. Keep asking question and I will answer them to the best of my ability ;)

P.S. im turning 22 on Saturday :D We build the mdx,RL, and pilot at my plant and I have worked in both assy and paint :cool:
