VEHICLE LOGISTICS CONSULTANT (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 16 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..
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 29 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..

All they want is for you to work the legal limit of 60 hours per week. If you want to make some serious money than this is the place for you. Keep in mind skilled trades are a cost to them and you will be treated with little respect by everyone else.
Production Assembly Line Team Member (Current Employee) – Woodstock, ON – 7 September 2016
A typical day at work is the employees online doing their own work and chatting about things while trying to keep up with the fast paced environment. I have learned what my physical capabilities are. Management was excellent as far up as I saw, they were extremely concerned with safety. the Hardest part of the job was waking up at 5am and staying awake until 5am. The most enjoyable part of the job was the bond that was made between the team members.
Team Member (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 7 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.
Bilingual Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Markham, ON – 29 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.
Contract Team Member (Current Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 24 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-timemore... team members to advance if they choose to take them. They do a lot more for their Team Members than most employers do.less
