Parts and Service Director (Former Employee) – Nicholasville, KY – April 10, 2017
The company is so large that if you have a desire to grow with it, or change positions, there is room for it. It can also feel "too big" at times so that you can just feel like a number as well. You have to have the ability to balance that.
What can I say.... Seriously. This place has afforded me every opportunity to be successful and full grateful for my successes financially and personally. day to day operations would normally require me t work from 9 to 11-12 pm... which is entirely to much for too little ... honestly. hardest part of swallowing that is that the GM did not and does not respect the sacrifice his employees make..
great pace, great people... but they are all leaving with me potentaily..
I feel like i have sacrifice my family and kids specifically for any time all for nothing to show, but experience and seriously lacking opportunity
Marketing Professional (Current Employee) – phiippines – April 5, 2017
Need to work more than the regular hours of work without pay, to give customer satisfactions. I enhance my communication skills. Toyota is a fun place to work with. Hardest part of the job is when i had reservations of units but its not available. enjoyable part of the job is when you see that you make your customers happy and satisfied with your service.
Facilities Manager (Former Employee) – Buford, GA – April 5, 2017
This company, while privately owned from 2000 - 2010 was a great place to work. The owner cared for all of his employees and many associates made a career there. Once bought out by a major corporation - slowly it became the "norm".
Vendor Management Analyst (Former Employee) – Torrance, CA – April 4, 2017
Working with my Toyota co-workers and management was very enlightening. Doing things the Toyota Way was a process. They made every opportunity available for you to learn your job and why things were done a certain way, the history of the company, and what the future may look like. Your input was always requested, and inclusion was second nature. Caring about others and your community are part of this culture. I learned that Toyota was a company that cared about its employees, their community, causes, the Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, teens, the elderly, etc. Toyota also stressed respect for each other, including outside vendors. Respecting others helped me to gain quite a few friends and maintain relationships. This lead to great collaborating sessions.
Administrator (Current Employee) – Plano, TX – April 3, 2017
Toyota used to be a great company to work for. Over the past few years, the leadership operates on politics and nepotism. The wrong people are promoted and since the announcement of the TX move, the engagement level continues to crash.

Mechanical Engineering Specialist Co-op (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – April 3, 2017
Worked as a co-op in the paint dept. as a younger student and was greatly supported by not only the specialists, but also workers on the line who had no obligation to really help me at all. It was a great opportunity for learning about lean operations in a manufacturing setting.
Lead Cashier (Current Employee) – Portland, OR – April 3, 2017
Typically, cashiers help check out every service customer by explaining services, processing payments and miscellanious requests. Though the job itself is pretty basic, the organization and flow is really unthought out. Management rarely listens to employees about ways to make customer service better or concerns about being understaffed. The most enjoyable part is interacting with customers and helping them navigate through a stressful situation.
Customer Relations Intern (Former Employee) – Torrance, CA – April 2, 2017
Overall, I didn't like my experience as a Customer Relations Intern. I felt like they kind of took advantage of the interns in a sense. As interns, we were required to work every Saturday. Also, they timed everything. You had to change tour status from available to whether you were going to lunch, break, or to go use the restroom and they would time you for everything. If you got back a minute late from your break for whatever reason, it would count against you. It could be that this was just in my department and not everywhere else.
