    Pros

    TMMK is Toyota's largest North American plant and can be an excellent place to gain experience in high speed manufacturing. The pay is often above average and Toyota is well respected global company. Toyota is also known for being highly selective and just being hired by them is a plus on your resume.

    Cons

    Few opportunities for advancement exist. While I was there, they hired almost exclusively through temporary services and I personally worked with other temps who had be there for up to 7 years. For nearly 3 years, they hired no one at all. I can say with almost absolute certainty if you are hired as a temporary, you have almost no chance of becoming full-time.

     If you are able to survive the hiring process which includes working a minimum of 2 years as a temp with no benefits what so ever or days off other than plant shut downs to get hired, you'll have to start over at the bottom of the seniority ladder. Keep in mind that vacation time is assigned by clock number and TMMK has over 6,000 employees. In other words, you wouldn't get first pick of a day off for nearly a decade if then.

    TMMK's senior management seemed disconnected and on occasion unprofessional. I can recall several meetings with senior management in which managers stopped the meeting to take cell phone calls--often personal ones. Many long time employees lamented the departure of the Japanese management. Most said the current management was out of touch and uncommunicative.

    Advice to Management

    Scrap the temporary services and hire directly.

    Pros

    The car industry is an exciting place to work - and Toyota arguably is one of the best at it. Toyota invented the JIT system, and you get to learn it from the experts. Looks great on a resume - and you get a pretty good discount on Lexus/Toyota/Scion cars as well. The daily work can be really interesting - depending on your manager, and the specific role you walk into. Best thing to do is work here for 1-2 years, then leverage this into a better opportunity elsewhere.

    Cons

    Culture. Management is severely disconnected, pay is barely adequate, hours are long, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees. You don't right now.
