Excellent job security, excellent pay, poor work life balance due to shifts

Worked here for 20yrs, good place to work, good pay at full rate 37/hr +, shifts are no good, working weekends no good, but its a factory so is to be expected. Overall had a great career here. I recommend this to anyone young and starting out in their life.

Pros

Lunches, weekend coffee and juice, great pay, lots of opportunity to advance

Cons

Shift work, line work, weekend work, long hrs

Good pay, at a cost

Yes, they pay is good but it's not worth the toll it takes on your physical and mental well being...you'll hear from most people there to take as much time away from here as possible...listen to them.

Pros

Money

Cons

Physical and mental wellness

Some Departments have good comradiership. (Materials)

Good place for younger people, who wants to make money.The continous development sounds good, but has many set backs in reality, when TMs have to compensate the flaws in the particular process.TLs should help, but they can only do so much.

Pros

Good pay

Cons

No life

Unnecessary shift change

The shift change makes you uncomfortable, and also you have to wait at least three years to be permanent. But the salary is the best in the area, it grows every year.

Cons

Long hours

Your experience matters.

Help out others considering your employer. Rate your employer.

Decent salary, with lots of overtime

Decent salary with lots of overtime. But tough on the work life balance. Good opportunity to move up. Bonus is given every year. Good benefits. I liked working here.

Pros

Good pay

Cons

Long hours
Was this review helpful?

I worked just over 18 years there.

It’s a great company with great pay and vacation. It is also shift work and while there job rotation the jobs are at a hard and steady pace. The contract period is over 2 years to become full time. That is a negative.

Pros

Job security

Cons

Long contract period.

If you have a lazy attitude,this isn’t for you.

It is what it is.Factory work building cars.If you can’t handle that then I’m sure there are other jobs out there.When there are high demands for a particular vehicle then there will be overtime & that goes for any other product that’s being made.Sometimes I tend to wonder about the mindset of certain team members at this plant.You were hired to build cars & the OT & benefits were given to you in your contract which YOU signed.Why sign something & complain about it afterwards? (Unless if you can’t read)All these car companies are about making money/profits,it’s just the nature of majority of businesses.You come to work,do your job,don’t join the “complaining gang”,clock out & head to your home & you should be fine.

Pros

Pay, vacation(FT), benefits

Cons

Too many negative team members just complaining day in, day out.
Was this review helpful?

Fast paced work, paid well for what is expected of you.

They have just changed the grow in schedule from 10 years to make the top rate of a regular team member down to 8 years. The starting rate is now 22.88 per hour, and takes 8 years to get to 36.60. Benefits after 90 days, and dental benefits with defined contribution pension after you are hired as a permanent team member.

Pros

Pretty much as much overtime as you want to work.

Cons

Work life balance at times.

Dead end Job

Toyota Motors Manufacturing Canada (tmmc) or as we called it teaching monkeys making cars.Well it could be a great place to work at.. but due to management its not.. you get paid ok.. but if you look at the fact that you cant have much of a life due to the pay its not worth it.. Everywhere in Ontario you get 10 sick days.. not Toyota or other auto manufacturers.. pretty sure they are down to 6 now.. So cant say not to overtime.. work work .. cant call in sick if you get hurt,well you can but after the 6 days they can fire you.. Management looks at you like your worthless and replaceable. do ur job and dont step on their foot.. or the little boys club will ensure your job is a nightmare there..And if you get assembly.. turn over is so high.. because in most parts of the line.. you dont have a extra sec everything is timed like a robot.. and you better be quick and no mess ups...Yep dead end job.. which will let you pay for a house But ull never be able to spend real time with your family

Pros

Pay is ok, lots of overtime..

Cons

Lots of over time.. almost no sick days.. and treated bad

Good for money. They do take care of you untill

A good place to make good money if your young and single. Favouritism is a huge thing there. If you get hurt they sagerate you and make you feel guilty. They will bully you out.

Pros

Good pay

Cons

Management and mandatory overtime

Be a robot

if your needing a job with no life balance, this is it. Once your full-time you will start to reap the rewards, std, ltd, lots of vacation time, you can start to be lazy and complain like everyone else that works there. HR dont care if you come back, disability benefits company doesnt care about you. So be a robot, dont get hurt, and dont have a life

Pros

Good pay once your full time

Cons

Low pay until your full time, and no vacation time

Treat you well at home and poorly at work.

Toyota gives you great benefits and pay, so when you're not there it's a great company to work for. However, on the job is a different story all together. The work-load is inconsistent between jobs, with some being so overburdened that it is almost impossible to compete them in the allotted time while the person beside you can do their job in half the time. When this issue is brought up, you are asked "what are you going to do about it?", which is encouraging since Toyota does offer you the ability to improve and make changes to your processes. That is completely negated by how difficult it is to get those changes to go through. The process to submit those changes is convoluted, and little to no guidance is available on how to navigate that process. They also provide no time for you to submit those changes, making you do it on your own time, or on paid breaks. On top of that, the culture is "us vs. them", which makes getting buy-off on those changes extremely difficult. Advancement is possible at Toyota, but be prepared to wait a long time. The application and interview process requires you to jump through several hoops, and then wait in a long line to get that promotion. Beyond that, you have to wait until you're hired permanently from your contract before you can begin the process. Someone I know took 3 years to finally get a position. The hiring process is another thing all together. They hire you as a contract worker, and you remain as a contract until you complete a mandatory amount of time as one - which changes, but the shortest wait I've heard recently is -

Used to be good until the 10 year grow-in

The money seems decent at first, but 10 years is a long time. (I was hired before then and made top rate at 4 1/2 years) You will be on "contract" for the first 3 years during which time... Your benefits are limited (no dental or long/short term disability) Your semi-annual bonus is 1/2 of what a full-timer makes. You get 1 week bookable vacation as well as 1 week in mid July and 1 1/2 weeks from Xmas to New Years's. That is the stuff that is "in print". What's not in writing... You are treated like a 2nd class citizen. Veiled threats to your job security are a regular occurrence. You can be moved to any shop or line or plant at any time. You better not get hurt or complain that you hurt, as they will do everything in their power to 'push" you out of there. You better not have any kind of disagreement with any level of management, no matter how justified, as they will "push" you out. Until you are full-time you just work there, you're not an employee. Anything you are promised when first hired can be taken away easily until you are full-time (pension, wage progression, vacation to name a few) Once you are full-time they can still take away whatever they want, whenever they want. I only stay because I make 80-90k/year (which took me less than 5 years) and get 7 weeks of vacation (5 of which I get to choose) If you don't believe me, or if you're OK with what you've read, try it out for a month. You'll at least make a few thousand and get a free pair of work shoes, prescription safety glasses and some clothing.

Very Physically Demanding

As an employee at Toyota I am an employee contract. The work is very physically demanding and what I am paid is not fair to the income of a fulltime employee. There is not enough job rotation and they were not fair when injuries occurred.

Not a fan

Really fast paced. Management out to get you. Blue collar language throughout. Pay was fair. Benefits good. Vacation days given great. All in all a difficult atmosphere to work in

Pros

Pay

Cons

Culture
Was this review helpful?

Just a number

Wasted 15 years of my life here, until injuries took to much of a toll on my body. Management does not want injured workers and will force you out the door if it is chronic. This place pays well once you put in 10 years, but depending on what area you are in, you will be destroyed. You mean nothing to this company. Line work is brutal, some offline jobs are ok, and other areas will take you 20+ years to get into. If you are willing to sell your soul, and not care about anyone around you, management is the way to go. Even then, you are subject to those above you, who will throw you under the bus to advance themselves. This place is not what you think, so I advise all those interested to please reconsider.

Pros

Pay Benefits

Cons

They don't actually care about employees

Talk to people that work here - not for online to be displayed for all to see

Good money, OK benefits, Hard work gets a new meaning here. You plan on holding on to the job? then you should not be sick or late . Your personal life needs have to take a back seat. Work is first . Want to know what it is like for real? Talk to people that work or used to work here.

Pros

Job security - (benefits - wages ?)

Cons

There are couple

Awful management!!

Do not apply here!! Go back to school, and get a career doing something that you would enjoy doing for the rest of your life! The pay and benefits are good, but the chances that you will reach full rate before you get injured Are slim to none!
