    I have been working at Toyo Tire North America (More than a year)

    Pros

    The job was challenging and very fulfilling.

    Cons

    Half of the month had a very tight and stressful working schedule. The Pay was very low for the type of work and responsibility. The company would not give cost of living raise so it becomes harder and harder to move forward from year to year.

    Advice to Management

    A competitive pay would be beneficial for everyone at the company. This will keep you from a high turnover rate.

    Pay, benefits, 401k, challenging environment that requires you to work.

    You may get dirty but there are showers in the locker rooms.

    Advice to Management

    Employee appreciation is the key to success.

    I have been working at Toyo Tire North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits. Discounted tires.

    Cons

    Understaffed (working 12 hour shifts 5 to 6 days a week. Even though they tell you you'll only work about half the year. don't believe that.) Really hot, known to reach 110 degrees. Its extremely dirty. this would be in the mixing department. The job can get very physically demanding.


  7. "Keep Looking"

    Pros

    Good products, the light truck product is top of the line. Free coffee in the break room. Some company sponsored outings like bowling.

    Cons

    The company has been overtaken by a regime focused on cost cutting to improve profitability. The leader of the regime does not seem to care that most of the employees are miserable and looking for other jobs. He makes decisions unilaterally and dispatches others to deliver the bad news. The people that work with him do as they are told or they will be fired. It used to be a great environment and maybe it will be again when this guy leaves someday. However, he seems pretty entrenched, so we are all looking.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice, I believe the senior staff also has a "I just work here" attitude because of the boss.

    I have been working at Toyo Tire North America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent benefits (absolutely zero perks). There are people who want to improve the atmosphere but they've been driven out or have simply given up.

    Cons

    For a Japanese firm, they are shockingly adverse to technology. Management seems to act on whims rather than logic. Upper management drives company-lease Porsches and BMWs as they rescind perks for lower level employees. Turnover is absolutely insane. Customer Service has seen 4 different managers in less than 1 year. If you aren't Japanese or Asian, your career is already capped. You also cannot get a raise based on merit; the entire company will get the same percentage range (2-5%) regardless of your work ethic. You will get very few American holidays off while the home office in Japan enjoys countless holidays.

    Do not waste your time.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house, starting at the very top. The constant politicking from the 3 corporate officers has driven morale into the ground. Pay people what the position is worth and turnover will improve. Salaries currently lag 10-15% behind similar positions at like-sized companies.

    Pros

    Twelve hour rotating shifts. You only work two weeks a month. Great pay and good benefits.

    Cons

    Management will not day word to the lazy ones who will not work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't keep the lazy people, fire them! Because, the ones that work are getting tired of caring all the load
