yet another vitim of the giant bully toyota
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Woodstock, ON20 March 2018
MULTIPLE INJURIES!!!! body broke down very quickly, was made to sweep floors while others were given training, hired to production area same time as myself. I was harassed by full time workers as a joke, perminant injury to legs, back, hands, shoulders, and almost suffered heart attack, that was the last straw. Overtime hours were modified and tampered with, pay was short unless you watched them like a hawk, would not recommend this employer at all, the vehicles are terrible quality as well, it made it morally difficult to assemble this trash and be proud of what you were building, send toyota packing back to Japan do not buy toyota garbage!! Good luck to all desperate enough to try TMMC
Pros
nothing
Cons
injuries, shorted pay, no chance to drink water unless line stopped, few if any washroom breaks, extremely hot, myserable coworkers, preferential promotional egotistical organization

Horrible place to work
Team Member (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON13 March 2018
As long as you are ok with being, talked down to and told by management that they "OWN YOU" and being threatened if you stand up for yourself you will be fine. And the HR Dept. will just turn a blind eye to anything. There attitude is if they didn't see it. It didn't happen.

weld materials (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON8 March 2018
Toyota is a good place to work if you enjoy long hours rotating shifts and some over time mandatory Saturday's. heavy labour, fast paced.

appretiation and communication is missing in the plants as well as frequent changes made that aren't always for the best. you have no life and see the people you work with more then your family.
Pros
great pay and holidays after 10 years.
Cons

production worker (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, ON28 February 2018
If you are a butt kisser, whiner or backstabber you will go far here. If you are an honest hard working employee, they will break your spirit and your body then toss you aside to make room for their next victim.

Worst place ever except for money!!!
Materials (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON23 January 2018
No respect is given to you as a person. They constantly bend the rules so it always benefits them! Keeps people on contract for years with no vacation time. Constantly giving s#*% to tworkers to work faster and quicker to build cars! The only reason people stay is the money!!
Pros
Money, Benefits that’s it!!
Cons
Long hours, Rules bended, disrespect, no family time, stupid hours, mandatory overtime, favortism, long contacts for years before full time. THIS PLACE NEEDS A UNION!!!

Assembler (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, ON20 January 2018
If you find the wage attractive, and you don't mind doing the same or more/ harder tasks for 2/3 the pay of the people making top rate which you won't earn for ten years. If you're okay with being a contract employee for the next three to five years, and the possibility of not being renewed for the next three months- every three months doesn't bother you. If you are okay doing the same elements every minute for 120 mins at a stretch. If you like being sore all over, all the time. If you're good with taking flak for every mistake, but not receiving recognition for catching mistakes. If you're okay with assisting a giant multi-million dollar corporation make another 1/10th of a cent on every unit at the expense of your body/ health. If team member favouritism and preferred jobs for senior tm's doesn't bother you. If you're good with not having a hope of advancing for 7-10 years. If you're good with all the above, apply. PAY ATTENTION at the assessment where you go in and perform the tasks in Cambridge. This is what the job WILL be like. A lot of really great people work here on the floor, there's a handful of great team leads and group leads, I hope you get one. the training to do your tasks is the best I've ever seen- but once you are certified to do a task- good luck to you. Don't be rushed into certifying on a task unless you are confident you can do it- 120 x in a row- without assistance. Be prepared to be assaulted by company propaganda while on shift. There are some perks.
Pros
good pay long term earning potential
Cons
long hours, repetitive tasks, mindless work that requires vigilant attention to detail

Assembler (Former Employee) –  Woodstock, ON1 January 2018
Wish that I could say that TMMC was a fantastic place to work but honestly pretty much everyone who works there are just doing it for the money.
This company has seriously lost the whole aspect of "family" and what people truly mean. They're simply about the cars out the door and they don't care about how they get them out the door.
The hours are brutal and the management/communication is brutal. Although they preach that there is no favoritism there absolutely is, and rules always seem to apply differently to each person.
They don't care about their employees and figure that if they continue to toss little raises at them it'll keep them quiet.

There is little to no recognition of a job well done or if you have gone above and beyond what you should've.
Pros
decent pay
Cons
brutal hours
