    Overall a nice productive environment.

    Co-Op (Former Employee) Princeton, IL

    ProsNice people, great chance to see innovative technologies. Lots of different factors go into making a car that most people are never aware of. Nice mix of people .The work is incredibly varied. Easy to find different elements you're drawn to.

    ConsOvertime occasionally. Sometimes the project you currently need to work on takes more than the usual 8 hours. And if the deadline is looming, you have to stay over to finish it. Good thing is they pay you overtime. Still, being in the office all day gets tiring.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave clear projects defined for interns and co-ops. Sometimes after I would finish my current project there wouldn't really be anything for me to do any more.

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

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

    Fleet Director (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    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.

    Great Company just watch your back

    Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    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!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
