    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.

    A good place to work.

    I worked at Toyota

    Pros

    The people that work for Toyota were all very friendly and helpful. I never had a problem working with anyone. This he;p[ed to provide an atmosphere that was easy to work in and be productive.

    Cons

    It seemed like i went to a lot of meeting where information was repeated and time was wasted.
    Too much time was spend on trying to get to the root cause of small problem, when a simple solution could have fixed the problem in a lot less time.

    I worked at Toyota full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Toyota offers good pay and benefits (varies between divisions). 13 paid holiday a year, start out accruing a little over 6 hours of vacation per month, 5 paid sick days and 3 paid personal day per year. Good medical/dental/vision.

    Cons

    There are a lot of politics one must deal with working with this company. Poor communication between corporate and facility, between management and supervision, and between supervision and hourly associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They won't take it, lol.

    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.
