Management needs improvement
VEHICLE LOGISTICS CONSULTANT (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON16 November 2016
Management is more concerned with bottom line and not the employees well being. They do not address bullying or any other concerns the employee brings to them. Training doesn't happen; they expect employees to train themselves..
Pros
free lunches
Cons
bad management

Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON29 October 2016
It is a horrible place to work you are on contract for 3 and a half yeats to 4 years. The new pay structure contracts make 15 dollars an hour less doing the same job as the person beside you. When you're body starts to fail because of the very fast paced repetitive work they don't give two bleeps. For the Christmas lunch they take away 5 minutes of you're break for 3 days to make up for the extra 15 minutes you receive to eat mass made junk. But ....Toyota cares lol my a..
Pros
Free pants.
Cons
The whole place

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.

Great Place to work
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.

Customer Service Associate
Bilingual Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Markham, ON29 August 2016
I am working in a call centre setting taking between 70-100 calls per day. My role is to manage current customer's loan and lease accounts. I enjoy helping people and interacting with colleagues. The hardest part of the job is that the nature of the role is very repetitive and doesn't allow for creativity and learning.
Pros
I am working in a finance capacity
Cons
I do not want to be in customer service

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

Kinesiologist (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, ON8 August 2016
This position is great to start off with because it exposes you to a ton of different aspects of Kinesiology but it is an extremely heavy workload. Very challenging but rewarding position.

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.

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

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

Hard Work, but large pay checks.
Contract Employee (Former Employee) –  Woodstock, ON9 June 2016
Work in a friendly environment. Upper management could have been better. Demanding work with little to no holidays, and a ridiculous amount of time on contract. (3.5-4 years)

Good job opportunity, contract period too long.
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
