A Great Company
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Lewisville15 December 2016
I believe that Toyota is a great Company to work for, in every sense.
I am at the Lewisville Center, in Texas. 98% of co-workers are great, managers are great. You know that your work is appreciated, and that your supervisor is there to support you. The pay is excellent, and the benefits are so much better then a lot of other companies.
I am truly happy at Toyota.
Pros
All
Cons
There are not at the new headquarters yet.

Project Manager/Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON6 December 2016
Culture is slow and male-dominated. Surprisingly tedious and backward processes given that its manufacturing arm is famed for the opposite. Difficult to beat salary, incentive pay and benefits - union avoidance strategy.

Team Member Materials - Woodstock (Current Employee) –  Woodstock, ON12 January 2017
A large corporation focusing on mandatory 48 hr work week, quantity over quality, lack of management's understanding to Team Members needs, ever decreasing benefits.

Horrible house, salary does not make up for the everyday chaos. Not to mention on top of 10 hour shifts you then have to work weekends.
Pros

good money, not great if your are looking for a career
TEAM MEMBER (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON15 February 2017
Working at Toyta is not what it was 8 years ago. It used to be $24.50 to start with, now is $20. It used to be 5 years to reach full rate $33, now its 10 YEARS!, to become full time is 3.5+ years. so no vacation, no dental, no seniority in between. They do shut down the plan for a week in July and week and a half in december, but if you are from out of the country and wanna take 2 weeks to visit your family friends....good luck.

Management is great, very laid back and always trying to make the job easier on you. Advancement opportunities are awful, youd be looking at 7+ years to even qualify for team leader (its all based on seniority)

Great company with excellent benefits
Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, ON22 July 2016
Toyota is a great company that provides excellent benefits, including lots of vacation time and other perks. It is probably one of the cleanest places you will ever work, and the focus on safety and Team Member engagement is high.

Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON19 January 2017
A typical day working at Toyota was exciting, hard working, productive and enjoyable. I was able to learn a lot about the company and what it has to offer. This includes how the vehicles are built as well as the standards that needed to be enforced when reviewing the quality of the finished product. The company has provided a very professional and clean atmosphere for their exceptional management team as well as all staff. The hardest part of the job was working on the concrete flooring for long periods of time. And the most enjoyable part of the job was having the satisfaction of sending out reliable, safe and durable vehicles.
Pros
Long lasting relationships with coworkers
Cons
Concrete floors

a Paycheque
Contract Team Member (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, ON24 August 2016
Based on what department you are placed in, everyday is exactly the same at Toyota. If you are in assembly you basically learn 4 different jobs and complete them every single day sometimes in the same order. The work atmosphere at Toyota is highly depressing, most employees hate it there and make it known constantly. Many people are openly negative about the company and their unhappiness with being there. A lot of people promoted into management are promoted for the wrong reason and have communication issues and should not be in leadership roles. This being said however, there are many good people in management as well. The hardest part of the job is the negative atmosphere and the physical toll doing repetitive work does on your body (repetitive strain injury). The most enjoyable part of the job is the paycheque you receive at the end of the 2 week pay period. This being said there is a huge wage gap at Toyota. Contract Team members begin at 20$ an hour and do not get ANY paid holidays for at least 3.6 yrs. You remain a contract until you get "full-time" which takes about 3.6 yrs. You receive benefits after 3 months of working there but they do not include dental. The full rate of pay at toyota is about 34$ an hour and it takes a whopping 10 YEARS to get to this full rate nowadays. So contract team members who do the exact same jobs as full-time get payed about 15$ less and get no holidays or dental. This helps breed a lot of the negativity in the workplace.

Working at Toyota is a lot like working anywhere else, it is what you make of it, opportunities are there for full-time
  more... team members to advance if they choose to take them. They do a lot more for their Team Members than most employers do.  less
Pros
free lunches, overtime, guaranteed hours
Cons
long hours, negative atmoshpere

Terrible place to work
Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Woodstock, ON10 January 2017
If you like waking up in the morning and being sore this is the job for you! Poor management and co workers are miserable, long hours and repetitive work, management only cares about making parts and not the well being of the employees, people are not welcoming.
Pros
Pay
Cons
It sucks

Painter/Labourer (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON15 June 2016
Overall Toyota is a great place to work as far as pay and benefits go. But factory life is not meant for everybody. And the repetition of the job is very taxing on the body.
Pros
great benefits
Cons
no family life

Dont believe the hype
Team Member (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON23 June 2016
good pay and vacation time, but don't get hurt as toyota's management don't want you back. Finding you a new position due to restrictions placed upon you by your Doctors and specialists just doesn't happen here. They either want you back on your old line or they would rather buy you out and leave you out to dry. The opportunity to move up is hard as it is a boys club there. Its all about who you know and who ya blow for sureManagement can get away with lots of broken rules that would have a regular TM fired and walked out.
Pros
Good pay and vacation time
Cons
long work hours, lots of drama, terrible working conditions(heat), front office personal aren't responsible for anything

Tmmc
Team Member (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON11 January 2016
I was happy with pay/benefits and vacation time with this company. However, I found it difficult to have an opportunity to advance in Trades, and also felt there was a lot of micro managing and very inconsistent rules from silo to silo. The jobs themselves were very fast paced and demanding on a level of physicality and quality assurance. I really enjoyed my time as a crane operator.
The soul reason I left this workplace was to pursue a career in Trades as an Apprentice Electrician.
Pros
Vacation, benefits, pension
Cons
Advancement opportunities, politics

Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Current Employee) –  Woodstock, ON11 February 2016
Too much favourtism, Swing shift with rediculaous start times are very hard on the body and mind. Spend 2-3 years on contract with limited benifits.
Come bonus time as a contract you are only worth the percentage of top rate you are, even after working your butt of for two years. (ie: if the bonus is $1000, the full time guy beside you get the whole thing, but if your only at 65% of top wage you only get $650).
Pros
Can't think of any, TBH
Cons
Not enough space to type them all

Production Associate (Former Employee) –  Woodstock, ON27 April 2016
I enjoyed my time at TMMC. Management and co-workers were all very pleasant to work with/for. I learned a lot about proper training and the importance of being knowledgable when it comes so safety practices. I also acquired a wealth of knowledge in the assembly industry as far as how the entire process works and how every individual process contributes to the final product as well as the efficiency of the product's assembly. The hardest part of the job was most likely switching shifts every 2 weeks, however this element became much easier with some time. The most enjoyable part of the job was most definitely the people I got to work with as well as the sense of accomplishment I got from contributing to the assembly process.
Pros
Co-workers, wage, environment, long hours
Cons
length of contract period

TMMC is a good company for single employees, but you have no chance of advancing a form a career (not in less than 7 years). You have no vacations for 3+ years until you become full time. Wage used to be 24.5 starting 5 years ago, now is 20.21

Team Member (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON7 September 2016
Working at Toyota as a summer student the last few summers was very beneficial everyone that i interacted with was friendly and willing to help the students learn what to do. Management was very accommodating with important student obligations and needing to miss a day throughout the summer. I worked on the assembly line all day building cars the atmosphere was very laid back and enjoyable but was under pressure to build cars under a certain time limit.
