    I have been working at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits remain very strong at the KY location. In general, Toyota is a safe place to work.

    Cons

    The demand on Production personnel is becoming overwhelming. The work is difficult and not much attention is being given to an aging work force.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on team!! Don't let the almighty pursuit of KPI accomplishment cloud your view of people. We are you most important asset.

    I worked at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The pay was good, and some of the people were nice. The work-life balance was good for factory workers.

    Cons

    The management would make fun of employees because they were pretty much untouchable. Complaints to HR made you a "cry baby" and then you would be moved to a terrible position to be made a lesson of. The company is full of bullies and they hold a bully mentality

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look in to Fred Muller and his mannerisms towards temp employees.

    I have been working at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Job security is a Pro. Toyota does have a great proclaimed values, ethics, and guideline system to follow by.

    Cons

    Continuous cuts in pay and benefits. Management and HR department make decisions based off of what is easiest or cheapest option for them, and negatively affects Team members. HR and Management do not admit or correct their mistakes. Proper movement and opportunity for transfer has been neglected. Desperate for promotions, promoting new hires to leadership positions with no experience. TMMK does not follow by Toyota's guidelines and principals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make decisions based off Toyota's guidelines principals and ethics, to truly improve our workplace. Don't make decisions based off of what will to make you look good because you saved the company some money by taking away from TM's, but decide to improve the conditions and atmosphere at TMMK.

    I have been working at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Toyota takes care of their employees. This is a very Paternalistic company that will often go above and beyond to take care of their team members. The benefits are great and employment, once you are hired is stable.

    Cons

    The consensus thinking can drive you crazy, if you consider yourself an independent thinker. If you are looking to grow, this is probably not the place, as growth is very slow. Development opportunities available are always available to provide a challenge to those who seek them out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate group think, there are many ideas that come from outside of the automotive industry. Stop disregarding ideas and thoughts that do not align with your own and be open to different thoughts and ideas. Many of your t/ms just grow tired of offering ideas for kaizen and move on to other companies that are more open.

    Former Employee - Production Team Member in Georgetown, KY

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

    Pros

    Salary, Vacations, Health Insurance, Employee Purchase Program

    Cons

    Debilitating Work, Clueless Management, Politics, Bad Work Environment, Shady Suck Ups. When you get injured on the job, and it is when, not if, you will soon find yourself on the short list of people the company wants to get rid of, because you are now a liability to them. And they will get rid of you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue and at least pretend to care.

    Pros

    Pay is great. Benefits are even better. Toyota continues to stay atop of the automotive industry. Toyota has many added amenities on its property. Such as, fitness center, multiple cafeterias, doctors, childcare and more.

    Cons

    Seems as though once an employee gets hurt the company doesn't care about you anymore, move on to next employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on programs to help employees prevent work related injuries. After about ten years its not if you will get hurt, its when.
