Ok place to work
Team Member (Former Employee) –  Woodstock, ON10 February 2018
No work life balance. Long hours for ok pay. Repetitious work day in and day out. You get treated like a slave to go faster and not to talk. Good benefits. Advancement is possible but you do a ton more work for only an extra dollar.

Dont waste your time
Seat assembky (Former Employee) –  Elmira, ON1 February 2018
The only good thing about working there is the sense of family on the line. The guys to your left and right are always great people.

The management is some of the worst I've seen at any company. Especially the group leaders. The group leaders are given given an obscene amount of discretion in regards to the team members. As a result the amount of favouritism that happens is staggering. If they don't like you. It won't matter if your attendance is good, if your rapport is good, your quality is good. They will find any and all reasons to weed you out. Even going so far as making things up to get rid of you. In order to succeed, do not show initiative, do not show leadership qualities. Just do your job and shut up, and everything will be fine.

Since there is no room for advancement at all. Those upper positions are coveted. The people in those positions will do everything they can to weed out threats. As a result the line is full of passive workers who will not speak up for themselves. If you do, you will be weeded out. They would rather have a line full of snowflakes as opposed to true working professionals.

HR is notorious for their insanely heavy handed responses to the most minor of things. This goes back to the group leaders, who report happenings to HR. Yes you read that right, your bosses will bring YOU to HR in order to weed you out.

Because it is a fast paced, repetitive work environment. Any one that's spent a decent amount of time there will get repetitive motion injuries. DO NOT GET HURT. Or they will weed you out.

DO NOT GET SICK or they will weed
  more... you out.

DO NOT think for yourself or speak for yourself. Or you will be weeded out.

I would not recommend this place to my worst enemy

Fast pace workplace with room to grow
Team Leader (Current Employee) –  Woodstock, ON17 July 2016
Toyota is a fast paced working environment that focuses on teamwork and high quality production. As a Team Leader I have learned effective communication, prioritizing and managing my time effectively. Management are often looking for employees opinions regarding how the organization can further grow and develop. The most challenging aspect of working with Toyota is ensuring the assembly line continues and high quality product is produced when the line is short staffed. This is a challenge as the line runs at a fast pace and is most effective when the entire team is involved. There are many enjoyable aspects of working with Toyota which include positive work environment, team work and a competitive pay.
Pros
competetive pay, team oriented environment
Cons
commute

Decent pay, but they will terminate you for anything.
Production team member (Former Employee) –  Elmira, ON18 November 2015
Good pay, some really good people there training you or working alongside that make it pretty easy going. Don't get hurt, or you'll be terminated. Don't get sick, cause you'll be terminated. Don't breathe wrong, cause you'll be terminated. They treat you like you're disposable and have no empathy for their employees. Horrible place if you have anything short of perfection.
Pros
Decent pay, lots of Overtime
Cons
Long hours, treated poorly, disposable, no feeling of worth

Worked there for years. Good pay, great benefits, but no life.
Manufacturing Team Member (Former Employee) –  Elmira, ON21 December 2014
Good pay 16.50 to 20.50 after 4 years. Great benefits 100 percent for dental, vision medicine, and $500 for massage (the legit kind, no happy endings ,lol). Consistent work, no layoffs. Clean safe work environment.

Hard monotonous work, negative management, overly long work days including weekends, working both sat AND sun. Unrealistic expectations of perfection.
Pros
Ping pong table, free lunch every other month, steady work good safety record.
Cons
Too much mandatory overtime, 10 hour days mon to fri, and 4 to 8 hours on sat and sun. Mangaers treat you like garbage if you make mistakes.

Good money, but requires lots of dedication and sacrifice.
Assembly Line Operator (Former Employee) –  Woodstock, ON18 December 2014
This is a great first job for someone who decided school wasn't for them. I only took this job due to the absolute need for money.

With long hours, meh at best management and only caring about the need of hitting your numbers... this job was something else. I was there for almost two years and my body just couldn't take it anymore.

If you're someone who likes to work long hours and shift work, this is for you, but don't expect recognition on many of the things you do.

Was an interesting ride, and honestly, I learned a lot. I have no ill will against the company now that I'm done, but it'd be a much better job with better management.
Pros
Good pay, overtime, benefits
Cons
Mandatory overtime, management, lots of repetitive movement.
