    Good experience for coop

    Product Engineer - Co-op (Current Employee)

    ProsLots of opportunity to see different part of the plant and get involved with projects. Friendly coworkers that are willing to help

    ConsSometimes you have to work for long hours or weird shifts, other than that, it was a good experience for me.

    Not good for a Finance Co-op

    Finance Co-Op (Former Employee) Cambridge, ON (Canada)

    ProsGood working environment and friendly staff to assist you in your work. Pay increases with experience level and if there is work then ample opportunity to get paid overtime

    ConsNot the ideal place for a finance co-op, work is scarce and there are long rigid working hours involved.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEngage co-ops more in projects especially finance departments ones who do not have enough projects to last the duration of the term.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Hard demoralizing workplace.

    QCRI Team Member (Former Employee) Cambridge, ON (Canada)

    ProsGood pay for manual labor at one point though that's on decline.

    ConsBosses & managers that behave like dictators promoting they're buddies and family members despite incompetence, and do not reward good workers.

    Workers on contract are on 3 month review now have to be there for min 5+ years to be hired full time. Pay dropped to $24/hr from around 28 when I was there, as were benefits and medical.

    People working online can hope to last 10 years without serious injury if strong, if not ur pretty much lost, and will never recover to work properly anywhere else manually.

    Other employees there under contractors are constantly intimidated and verbally abused.

    Production must go on no matter what, a while back when corolla engines were still being made there, the air compressor robot that cleans engine blocks broke and I personally saw the supervisor tell people to put the dirty engine blocks on line to be built, 6 months later 33000 engines were recalled. Quality is getting worse there every year, as cost cutting penny pinching and worker fatique sets in.

    Toyota never has a layoff, it only has a end of contract.

    Pray u don't buy a Friday/ Saturday OT or Monday car as people there are pissed off that they have another hard week ahead of them. Anyone who has worked there knows and has seen the death stares at north plant cafeteria on a Monday morning.

    People working there get into stupor and to comfortable and get them self's into trouble by getting cars and mortgage they can barely afford and then get stuck working there since no other labor job can sustain that lifestyle.

    If you are young stay there 5-6 years if u can, and save as much as possible, then go to school or start ur own bussiness , that way in will have job security in the future.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet ur heads out of our own asses. Start treating people with respect.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Too late to start over

    Team Member (Current Employee) Cambridge, ON (Canada)

    ProsOne day i might get a pension, if i make it...12 years left

    Consmismanaged, disrespectful, detrimental to personal life, high rate of injury, and very much an adversarial environment.

    Advice to Senior Managementsay what you mean and mean what you say.
    follow your own policies
    appreciate the workers who have won the awards that you take the credit for.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
