Main Installer (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – February 13, 2017
I worked here for over three years and can say that it was the strangest organization to work for. Their values that they were trying to portray in there handbook, were not the values implemented. The management was like a turn style and always changing. The hardest part of the job was trying to do your job, with the tools you had and not with what tools you needed. They didn't really seem to care. And the prescription insurance is not good here. The doctor gives you a prescription and they will not fill it or after one, they will cut you off. I never seen a company trying to manage there employee's medicine.
Parts Distribution Picker (Former Employee) – Sealy, TX – June 16, 2016
The normal day at Toyota is going to work around noon going to lunch almost dinner time and than the highlight of the day was going to play basketball. The training they had was top notch the best training i have been through.
This was a job where I loved the work and loved the people. Training was very good. Management was a holder of higher standards. Co-workers had good attitudes and always willing to help when needed. The hardest part of the job was the work load. The most enjoyable part of the job was problem solving.
you received workout points every time you worked out/discount on cars
Manufacturing Team Leader/Shop Floor Manager (Former Employee) – VPC – May 15, 2016
When I started working at GST it was a vibrant and enjoyable place to work. I worked there for 10 years. Hardly anyone of my old colleagues is still employed there. They were systematically removed one by one. I have never witnessed this many salaried associates being let go in my 27 years of experience. It was down right personal. I am not bitter, but relieved that I no longer have to partake in their undoing. Three years ago there was a management change at the very top and that's when the unraveling began. We made millions and millions of dollars for this company, only to lose our jobs eventually. Their modus operandi is to get as much out of you as possible, place you on a Performance Improvement Plan once they feel like they have to replace you and then ultimately let you go. I worked 10 years of my life, basically 10 to 12 hours a day, 6 days a week for this company. Always putting their profits before anything happening in my life. In the end, they said goodbye, without a severance package or compensation of any sort. They ought to be ashamed of themselves for the way they end up treating their salaried associates.
The hourly associates are very caring and good to work with.
Management does not care about anyting other than money.
Great opportunity for those that are motivated to used their talents. GST serves Toyota vehicles to 5 different states with sister enterprises that serve with transportation, warranty, financing, marketing, training and have a network of dealerships that support customers with their needs for a reliable vehicle. Busy segment of the business that works long hours and provided professional installment of add on accessories to the vehicles. The enterprise offers re-qualification of quality of the vehicles and pre- inspections of most of the vehicle shipped. Customer satisfaction focused with the vision that everyone should own this quality product.
Always meeting enterprises expectations that continues growth according to demands.
This is a great company, job is good, benefits and culture is amazing. But as any other production company, demands are high and takes most of your balance of life and work. Work is over 60 hours a week and for Salary personnel that is not a good bargaining.
Lots of overtime, you cant plan any family time, rude management, lot of micromanagers, good for teens

Fun job at first 7 months, then closed my department down (would have retired in that department. bumped to another department. Horrible supervisors, older workers mean and try to throw you under the bus. Coming from another department, we had targets on our backs. kept reprimanding, suspending then firing us 1 by 1. lots of micro management. the jobs are easy, just repetitive. your constantly being rushed. good benefits. you couldn't plan a weekend with family, cause they tell you have mandatory ot. if you don't show up suspension or get fired. managers from hr to supervisors are mean. good place for high school graduates to figure themselves out. got gift cards ever so often and lunches etc.gifts at Christmas and bonus at end of financial year.
this is a place for people who don't have a family life, who are single etc..
driver (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – April 8, 2015
Enter 4 am pick up car of the train, passing through carwash, and parking in parking lot, most from 10 different locations, depending on the need we changed location, parking to warehouse long hours good people
-The days were long but a good days work. -I learned a lot working there. Work-wise its not a bad place to work. -The management isn't the best. The managers don't use their power correctly and the HR is NOT on the side of the employee. -the co-workers were a healthy mix of good and bad. -the hardest part of the job was dealing with the lack of respect and appreciation given the employees from the management team. -The best part was working with my hands and the sense of pride I felt after a long days work.
