    I worked at Toyota full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to work in different areas.

    Cons

    There is a large contractor work force, and the actual employee work force is small in comparison. This means that there is quite a bit of fluidity in the environment, and there are many times where knowledge has not been properly transferred.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure employees have the proper background/training for the function they are performing.

    Former Employee - Warehouse Associate in Cincinnati, OH

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

    Pros

    Good pay, Benefits Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Management doesn't listen to associates if you are by yourself. A lot of brown nosing. When you have a problem they have a person you go to who lives out of town called a 'HRC". This person goes from facility to facility listening to everyone's complaints. Kind of like a union steward with no union. An employee of the company. Who does what the company wants without listening to real facts! And they don't adhere to their non-retaliation policy! You might when your first round, but you will be a marked person after that! Believe me !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The associates are the back bone of your company Act like you belief that. everyone in your management crew are not good managers. Some are real bullies!
