    I have been working at Toyota Motor Sales full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Overall decent company. People are nice, associates are willing to help each other to achieve success. Dry cleaning and gym on site.

    Cons

    Not a diverse executive management team. Moving up is next to impossible due to older employees who refuse to retire. Pay is less than competitive position in other companies. Management is no longer transparent about the future. The company is also moving to Dallas, so morale is down and people are looking for ways out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rethink the prospect of all employees leaving. Not having a presence on one of the coasts can be very costly long term. Diversify the executives to better reflect the market.

    On the surface. Lower than average pay, better than average benefits. A lot of silos, cliques and denial.

    Pros

    Better than average benefits, for now. Fun, social and very smart co-workers. Was nearly paradise until 2008...

    Cons

    Moving to location in TX, known for 50 years of lead contamination -from batteries. Yep, used in hybrids. Pay will be frozen. Benefits reduced. Staff cut in half, workload will double. No mandatory overtime pay in TX where companies rule and employees are a tool. Employee Car lease program will end, thanks to TX laws.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gee thanks.

    It was basically a legal pyramid scheme.

    I have been working at Toyota Motor Sales

    Pros

    A good amount of sales experience is built. Large amount of leads.

    Cons

    A $2000.00 draw check had to be paid to the company at the end of every month that was subtracted from paycheck. Unprofessional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the competition in management.

    I worked at Toyota Motor Sales full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    High salary, great benefits and car lease program. Paid training and laid out standards and expectations of working environment.

    Cons

    If you work in a warehouse forget about moving up unless you either have a degree, know someone or are a woman looking to be a "secretary" for an important man. Most of the people I know who still work for the company can't stand their job, they just can't find another which will pay the salary they are at. I was injured at work and they put me through the ringer, had people come to my house to interview me, watched my house and denied my claims until they finally accepted it a year later and fired me on the day of my surgery. I literally got the call the morning of my surgery and they stated I was separated from the company and had three days to turn in my vehicle. That said, they do pay you very well and the benefits are amazing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people like they matter and they will work hard for you. Treat every situation as an individual issue. You hire people for their abilities to contribute and make their work environment better - try listening.

    I have been working at Toyota Motor Sales full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers are good people and there is great camaraderie. Benefits are decent, but no long term care. Staff managers are decent and the work environment is very good. Toyota makes excellent vehicles.

    Cons

    The company doesn't care about it's employees although they preach employees are their "#1 asset". Toyota treats everyone like a "number" and is moving to TX w/o the regard of employees who have worked 20+ years. Toyota will not consider tele-commuting or offer a "buyout" or early retirement to employees who elect not to move..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employees and they will work harder for you. Listen to what employees are saying and talking about and be "in touch" w/them. Review methodologies of companies w/happy employees who have higher production levels.
