    It was an enjoyable place to work.

    Car Detailer (Former Employee)
    Altus, OK

    ProsI enjoy being around cars, so working at a car dealership felt natural for me. If you enjoy being around cars, then working for Toyota is a great place to be.

    ConsAs a car detailer, I was at the bottom of the totem pole, so I had to take orders from everyone, and it's difficult to satisfy everyone's desires, but that is to be expected in any lower position.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust so long as things are moving forward, there's no reason to try to change anything.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Excellent company to work at

    Skill Maintenance (Current Employee)
    San Antonio, TX

    ProsThis company compensated the hard work of all their employees. There is a lot of overtime available if you want to take it.

    ConsSometimes working rotation shift is hard for people with family

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep recognizing the employees for their hard work

    Challenging

    Skilled Trades (Former Employee)
    Georgetown, KY

    ProsOn the Skilled Trades end of things, Toyota is very organized and structured in their Control Network. There are a lot of knowledgeable team members, team leaders, and group leaders who share their knowledge with each other. If a person is looking to learn Six Sigma practices, then Toyota is a great place to take advantage of these concepts. They also cross-train employees which benefits the company and employee. There are lots of opportunity to learn current technology, lean business concepts, and continuous improvement procedures.

    ConsWith the company being so large, sometimes its hard to move to other departments; especially, for an employee with a large clock number. New hires typically have to work on 2nd shift and it takes a long time to make it to 1st or 3rd shift.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't hold someone from going to another department, especially when they are trying to better themselves.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    ProsLots of great challenging experiences. offered to travel and go for supplier visit , great team to work for.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

    Toyota is a great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Torrance, CA

    ProsToyota cares about their associates. They always have events to show their appreciation of their employees. That is why they have a high retention rate.

    ConsDue to the fact that no one really leaves the company it is difficult to get promoted. Many associates started with the company right out of school and have been there for over 30 years.

    Great Company, Great Managers

    Energy and Environmental Research (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsThe people are great to work with and talented. Managers cultivate a great work environment where the expectations are high but the rewards for meeting them are well represented.

    ConsHard to come up with cons, but as with most places, you may encounter one or two individuals that may not fit in with the rest of the company, but even they are manageable. Any sort of con with Toyota in America may be a result of interacting with certain managers from Toyota departments in Japan that can make decisions difficult. But in the end, Toyota delivers high results while maintaining a great relationship with its employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep promoting from within, it has built a great working environment. As part of the US progression, keep integrating more Americans into the management structure.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ConsI haven't experienced any cons during my time working here. However, everyone is different and will have different experiences.
