    I have been working at Toyota North America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've worked for Toyota for 13+ years and absolutely LOVE it, which is why I'm moving to Texas with them. So many opportunities are offered and flexibility has never been as issue for me, even as a single parent - awesome company.

    Cons

    None, other than hard work is expected from each associate. You might not always like who you work for, but getting the job done, as a team, makes it all worth while.

    Advice to Management

    Flexibility, understanding of each associates situation and keep taking care of us as we'll take care of YOU
