I worked at Toyota Motor Corporation full-time
Great people, many talented, generally well managed.
Old school managers are tolerated, and even promoted, and even called leaders. Many failed attempts to replace key systems.
Advice to Management
Don't just rely on surveys, but go in and dig down to really understand the perspectives from all levels.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Toyota Motor Corporation (Chandler, AZ) in July 2017.
Online Application, Assessment, 20 minute phone screening, and then an in-person interview. BEWARE I interviewed and was told that I would hear back in 2-3 days. 1 week later I followed up and was dismissed with the words that "they are still reviewing the candidates". Another week later I followed up again. The start date was August 11th and I had to contact the recruiter to get any information. Even a decline letter. I have a bachelor's of science degree, previous customer service experience 9+ years, and a tenured employee at TFS' referral. I don't know what you have to do to get in with this company, but the interview was overly formal and awkward and everyone I interacted with was cold and unhelpful. Very confusing process. Hiring process is usually indicative of a company's health and this is not a positive indication.
