    I worked at Toyota North America as a contractor

    Pros

    none, none, none, none, none

    Cons

    management is horrible! talk about you behind your back when you are not in the office, throw you under the bus to save their behinds! if you ask for help you get talked down to and degraded for it. no training. one of the worst jobs i've ever had

    Advice to Management

    hire and promote people who actually know how to manage and not people who talk about their employees behind their backs. and actually listen to you when you have some ideas

    Pros

    Paycheck shows up every two weeks. Financial stability.

    Cons

    All the things that used to make Toyota (and Lexus) fantastic and so much better to work than any other car company are systematically being dismantled under the guise of "harmonizing" all the various Toyota companies into one. Over the last few years (but currently on a more accelerated pace) there have been multiple downgrades in pay, benefits and company perks to where it's no different than Ford or Chevy. Congratulations Toyota, you've successfully benchmarked mediocrity. From forcing all associates to agree to arbitration in HR legal matters to loss of pension, loss of health insurance options, etc., and now they are hinting at coming drastic changes to the average pay scale for various positions, meaning I will not receive another raise for the next 10 years. As I said, it's no different than working anywhere else now. Once prized, our customer's are now just a sales statistic for the marketing team to pat each other on the back about.

    Advice to Management

    They know what's going on because they are engineering it. Newbies won't know any better, but those of us that have been around for a while are indeed sad.

    Pros

    Frequent overtime opportunities, and a diverse work force.

    Cons

    10 years to top out in hourly pay, annual increases in benefit costs, no respect for team members, all promotions result in years of 2nd shift, and a general disregard for ergonomics and team member safety by management.

    Advice to Management

    Accountability should not solely apply to team members, shorter time for the transition from variable work force to full time, and most importantly the ten year top out is completely ridiculous

    Pros

    Good pay and health benefit but money doesn't keep a family together more than time together. Lots of jobs because everyone is looking to leave

    Cons

    Horrible management chain and promotion process
    Management doesn't care about the employee
    Vehicles produced first, quality of vehicle next, safety third
    Employer doesn't try to fix you and keep you from getting hurt again

    Advice to Management

    HR needs to be in charge of hiring and promotions
    If a job is hurting an employee move them to a new job there are plenty out there

    Pros

    I left there. It was the best decision I ever made. I hope those poor WV people wake up soon.

    Cons

    You can't trust anyone in management. Bases your pay on what a car wash production worker would make in that area.

    Advice to Management

    Your suppose to share the wealth and tell the truth.
