Great Company just watch your back

Warehouse Associate (Former Employee)
Cincinnati, OH

I worked at Toyota full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGood pay, Benefits Good work life balance.

ConsManagement 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 Senior ManagementThe 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!

I have worked for several Toyota dealerships for over 30 years as Fleet Manager/Director.

Fleet Director (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

I have been working at Toyota full-time for more than 10 years

ProsQuality products, our consumers are generally happy with purchases. Many repeat buyers and referrals. Because vehicles basically sell themselves, we are always busy. Training is available from the factory, mandatory if you wish to succeed.

ConsToo many hours, never a weekend off, no bonuses and commissions about the same as they were 30 years ago. Minimum commission is same $100 as it was in 1980. it takes working 6-7 days a week to make a six figure income.

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

Toyota is a great place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Torrance, CA

I have been working at Toyota full-time for more than 10 years

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.
