    Former Employee - Mechanical Engineering

    I worked at Toyota as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    After career fair and applying online, I received a call for setting up a phone interview. It was very straight forward and simple S. T. A. R. format interview. No technical questions were asked

    Cons

    To be very honest I did not have any issues, concerns or problems with the hiring policies. Everything was very clearly stated and setup very professionally. After my interview they offered me a job and gave me a week or two to give back a response.

    Current Employee - Co-Op in Long Beach, CA

    I have been working at Toyota as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to develop real life engineering skills and be given design product and teams to lead. Allowed opportunity to learn as a follower as well as gain experience as a leader

    Cons

    Experience is largely dependent on department that you are assigned to. Would have loved to have more projects and gain more experience in other departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow Co-Op to work with other Co-Op Engineers, as well as schedule meetings with them at work as well as away with the workplace. Felt isolated and not part of the team for first couple months. Introductions would have been ideal.

    Former Employee - Car Detailer in Altus, OK

    I worked at Toyota full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    As 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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Sometimes working rotation shift is hard for people with family

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep recognizing the employees for their hard work

    Former Employee - Skilled Trades in Georgetown, KY

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

    Pros

    On 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.

    Cons

    With 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 ManagementAdvice

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