    Pros

    The people you work with, the people you meet

    Cons

    Lousy sales training, tons of hours expected to work at straight commission. You lose your days off if you don't sell 7 cars by the 20th of the month, this goes for new people too.

    Advice to Management

    Better, slower,training. You would keep more new people if you didn't jam 20 pounds of carp in a five pound bag.

    Pros

    This company compensated the hard work of all their employees. There is a lot of overtime available if you want to take it.

    Cons

    Sometimes working rotation shift is hard for people with family

    Advice to Management

    Keep recognizing the employees for their hard work

    Pros

    The most important things I learned at Toyota were the ability to negotiate and how to pick up on customer nuances. Selling automobiles is one of the most difficult sales you'll ever make so to do it well, repeatedly, makes a way for your selling muscles to flex.

    Cons

    Not doing well and getting blown out for lack of production. Being intimidated by others in the sales force. Not making enough money to pay your bills because you have yet to succeed as being a closer.

    Advice to Management

    Train your people well and they will in turn serve to make life easy for you.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to work in different areas.

    Cons

    There is a large contractor work force, and the actual employee work force is small in comparison. This means that there is quite a bit of fluidity in the environment, and there are many times where knowledge has not been properly transferred.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure employees have the proper background/training for the function they are performing.

    Pros

    Managers know what they are doing. There is a ton of training and no one is uptight like I've experienced at other shops. I've wanted to go back just for the people. The environment is always friendly and never stressed. If you mess up, they help you instead of blame you. Just don't do it more than 3 times

    Cons

    Pay is too low. Lot's of construction always going on and you have to get there 30 min early just to park a half mile down the road and wait for a shuttle in muddy water. Not my favorite

    Advice to Management

    Pay me more so I can come back to work for you

    Pros

    Stable work. Health insurance is offered.

    Cons

    Pay keeps going down every year because they don't keep up with inflation with 10 cent increases.

    Advice to Management

    Share some of the successes with the team members financially like ford and gm always have

    Pros

    On the Skilled Trades end of things, Toyota is very organized and structured in their Control Network. There are a lot of knowledgeable team members, team leaders, and group leaders who share their knowledge with each other. If a person is looking to learn Six Sigma practices, then Toyota is a great place to take advantage of these concepts. They also cross-train employees which benefits the company and employee. There are lots of opportunity to learn current technology, lean business concepts, and continuous improvement procedures.

    Cons

    With the company being so large, sometimes its hard to move to other departments; especially, for an employee with a large clock number. New hires typically have to work on 2nd shift and it takes a long time to make it to 1st or 3rd shift.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hold someone from going to another department, especially when they are trying to better themselves.
