    I have been working at Toyota Boshoku full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good Benefits in Medical area. Paid shutdowns. 401K plan is good, would be nice to have a larger company contribution match.

    Cons

    No structured advancement plan. No pay increase plan, no bonuses. HR Department is worst I have ever seen, no assistance from anyone here. Considerable amount of finger pointing. High turnover rate. Low Pay

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example, everything is not middle managements fault. Poor hiring plan, when you attract felons and criminals, you will have higher attendance issues and larger turnover rate. Up your pay, pay a bonus for production achievements. Invest in your plant and employees and only hire employees that will contribute to the company's success. It can not continue to only be about the headcount. Looking for changes in 2017 hopefully. Let practice what we preach

    Pros

    Work is very easy. Mostly clean. Friendly staff. Pretty flexible start times. 14 PTO days for salary employees to start.

    Advice to Management

    Better wages/ advancement should be based on knowledge not friendships/ better benefits / break up the management group in prototype all together.
