Great Group
Finance Director (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB17 May 2018
This is one of the biggest auto groups in Canada and as such has huge advancement opportunities with many of it's senior management coming from internal promotions. Even though they are a big group they always make you feel like family and make sure you have time for your family. I highly recommend working for this group.
Pros
Great people and environment
Cons
Nothing

Intense place to work

This job was extremely fast paced. The management are not concerned about their employees and run everything by numbers only. This kind of management style lead to poor morale and high employee turnover.

Cafeteria is great
Cons
Stressful place to work.

Assembly line worker (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON7 May 2018
You basically do nothing but work. They don't care about your life outside of work they want you to work all the overtime no matter what and if you can't they get mad at you and they will not renew your contract.

Departments are very siloed.

The product is amazing and continuously improving.

Old-school management

SALES AND LEASING CONSULTANT (Former Employee) –  Maple, ON21 March 2018
Develops interpersonal skills, helps build a strong clientele base, very multicultural. Includes great bones for top sales and great rewards for hard work. Learned a lot of individual values and opinion, a typical day would be the end of various calls to clients for and follow ups. Most enjoyable part is the people and the friendly environment.

Very conservative and averse to changes culture
Consultant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON15 March 2018
Very conservative and averse to changes culture. Management avoids taking responsibility for their own mistakes, averse to lead positive changes, apply old-fashioned, stone-age systems for data analysis, data management. Typical approach is why to change if it is still working despite it is already updated and far less efficient which puts a lot of pressure on regular consultants. It is only in words that management says they care about people, in fact a lot of managers care about themselves and keeping their positions, if some mistake happens that is always a fault of regular consultants and the managers have nothing to do with that. There are very good departments though, it really depends on managers, not all are rotten, there are some pretty good ones.
Pros
Subsidized lunches, team buildings, paid overtime, good offers on demo cars and insurance
Cons
Very old and conservative culture, averse to changes and adopting new technologies, many managers are not looking to improve the daily operations efficiency.

High volume production, lean manufacturing system
Key Trainer - Training and Development (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, ON12 March 2018
Toyota used to be THE best company to work for many years ago. There was no shortage of good things to say, however, as the auto industry has changed, so has Toyota.

The compensation package is no longer worth your time, energy and health. (Contracts now start at $18+/hr opposed to $27/hr)
Incredibly long split shift hours (9hr days, 10hr nights) with mandatory weekends as needed.
Incredibly long contract period (4+ years)
Pension only after 10 years
Constant union attempts
Toyota does not abide by Employment Standards reqirements (duty to accommodate)
Injuries are very common and frequent


The "Toyota Way" is a management philosophy, guidelines and adoption in lean production and lean management.
This system works extremely well for business, but, they are missing focus on the most important factor in their system, human capital.
Pros
Over time, free gym facilities, compensation package, no layoffs
Cons
Mandatory over time, repetitiveness, lack of care for employees, no union

Apprentice Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Queensland1 March 2018

I was lucky enough to gain a promotion with close completion time of
My apprenticeship, which gave me more experience in an office environment which I would strive to work in more often!
Pros
Staff bonding and lunches.

Too much internal politics
Vehicle Programs Consultant (Contract) (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON23 February 2018
Full time employees are threatened by contractors and they refuse to progress with new programs. Policies are changed based on favoritism. If you are a contractor, you are reminded every day that you are just that even though contractors are a HUGE reason for Toyota's success. Every ounce of your ambition is diminished by the day
Pros
None
Cons
Full time employees set new people up for failure.

Avoid at all costs
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON (fountain st location)15 February 2018
This is about the division on fountain street in Cambridge ON. Avoid this place at all costs. They make you believe it's such a great place but after you start to work there it becomes quite apparent it's just the opposite. The turn over rate for employees is insane "Here today gone tomorrow". My advice is stay away from here because of the mismanagement, lies and game playing. They like to say they're paying the higher end wage but don't tell you what you have to do or go through to earn it.

The mid level management are a complete joke. These are the people who have been working there so many years (because they couldnt make it anywhere else). These are the types where if you show any initiative or intelligence they feel threatened then do everything in their power to get you pushed out. Certain individuals in the mid management are also the types to be backstabbing the employees and to play the favouritism card.

All in all a very bad place to work for such a small place with such a small staff. AVOID WORKING HERE AT ALL COSTS IF YOU'RE SMART
Pros
None at all other than a few good coworkers
Cons
Far to many to write down

Good money, poor culture
Production Team Member (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON22 January 2018
Tough work, long hours. Poor culture, most people are miserable. Good pay and benefits. Not many opportunities to advance, most Team Members stay Team Members and a select few will become Team Leaders. It was a decent summer job.

Wonderful place to work
Coop Student (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON20 January 2018
This plant is the biggest among the places I worked so far, owns all kinds of machines and equipment a plant can possibly have. The policy is pretty relaxed, open for any new ideas and welcomes all kinds of positive contribution if anyone wants.

Although a little bit of politics found here and there, but apart from that it is a great place to work.
