    Pros

    They pay very good wages for a job that requires no formal schooling. Most of the people are classy and hardworking individuals.

    Cons

    There is way too much unnecessary overtime. Machines are constantly breaking down and are not properly maintained.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe work on making a maintenence schedule. Set up a certain time every couple of weeks to look at machinery and see that everything is in tip top shape. Less overtime means less stressed out employees and less company costs.

    Pros

    Main reason to work at Toyota Group company was Job stability. That was wrong, jon stability for only Japanese employees not for American or Canadian employees.

    Cons

    No recognition for an excellent work, Individual does not benefits. Manager or group benefits doer or initiator does not get credit or any benefit for his work.

    slow management decisions and bad communications with employees.
    Japanese management takes care of Japanese direction and leaves NA actions on NA management which does not effect Japanese direction without analysis NA effect or long rage effect.
