Production Manager (Current Employee) – El Cajon, CA – October 11, 2017
New uneducated management has ruined the place. People that can build good guitars not equal good managers. Managers do not know how to resolve production issues, deal with employees, or communicate so they delicate their responsibilities. BUT then they do not know how to explain with they need done.

Taylor Guitars is a great place to work if you're not necessarily looking to move up in your career. Leads and Supervisors come and go almost as fast as the latest trends.
The benefits are great, the pay is OK, and the atmosphere is awesome. Just don't expect to move up any time soon. There are a lot of people that have worked there for 10+ years, and most people are just fine doing the same repetitive work day after day.
Benefits, casual dress code, great atmosphere
Pay, can be overwhelmed by "projects", some managers don't know what they're doing
Production Worker (Current Employee) – El Cajon, CA – December 5, 2015
I only worked here a year and a half, but by far the best job I've had, I'd keep it if I wasn't moving out of state. 15 minute breaks and a half hour lunch are basic, but if you want to keep active they provide bicycles to ride around on or ping pong tables to play on. They stand for quality and treat their employees superb.
Fun environment, free coffee and espresso machine, ping pong
Productive and fun work envirnoment with great coworkers
Warehouse lead (Former Employee) – El Cajon, CA – July 25, 2015
Spent 7years at Taylor Guitar learning a lot and developing myself as a responsible and educated individual. I learned how to be a leader and delegate tasks. I learned proper email and in-person communication. I developed many spreadsheets for the company so I am excellent at inventory control.

I loved working here but my temping position ended and was not hired on because of my mother position in the company. I learned everything I know related to warehouse work there. I learned how to be a responsible and hard work who is able to get all the things assigned to do in a timely fashion. Everything about the job was enjoyable, even my co-workers.
Body assembly (Former Employee) – El Cajon, CA – September 23, 2013
At first i loved it, the company and owners have great values. Then you start realizing it's a lot like high school. The "cool kids" run the place on the inside. If you don't get involved with their "extra curricular activities" then you're essentially an outcast and therefore your voice is irrelevant. Basically it's their word over yours. A little advice for new employees, play along and keep your head down.
1 week off for july 4th, 2 weeks off for christmas and new years.
poor management, alot of people lying to make themselves look better
