What you can expect as a TMMK team member
Joining Toyota's Kentucky team is an outstanding opportunity to build quality automobiles and to discover an exceptional quality of life.
What is TMMK looking for in its work force?
Experience is important for many positions, however; TMMK is not necessarily looking for experience, but rather for candidates with team skills, problem solving ability, education, potential and a desire to learn. Candidates undergo intensive assessment and evaluation to help ensure those hired have the ability and motivation to sustain our tradition of excellence.
Team Member Development
TMMK is committed to training and developing team members to help ensure their success. Training is a continuous process offered through a combination of classroom and on-the-job training. Broad development of the individual is also vital to prepare them for promotional opportunities. Cross-training and job rotation enable team members to become involved with fresh challenges, increasing their flexibility and enhancing professional satisfaction.
A positive, supportive work environment is key if team members are to commit themselves to the success of the company. TMMK wants team members to be free from the concerns many others face in the workplace, such as unfair treatment.
Teamwork is very important to TMMK. This is one reason team members must have excellent interpersonal skills. Everyone including the president wears casual business attire, shares common benefits and works in an open office concept. There are no separate executive parking places or dining areas.
TMMK encourages open, honest communications throughout the organization. Team members are able to share problems and appeal decisions with management without fear of reprisal through a variety of formal and informal processes. In return, management openly shares information to help ensure team members understand our business goals and objectives.
At TMMK, job security is important to morale. We maintain lean staffing levels, focus on good attendance and cross-train team members to make them as flexible as possible. This staffing system is designed to hire only as many team members as needed to help avoid employment fluctuations often found in the auto industry.
TMMK provides competitive wages and ties our total compensation package to the success of the company. We also offer many unique benefits such as an on-site fitness center, credit union and child care facility. Go to Benefits for detailed information.
One overriding characteristic of TMMK is our focus on quality. Every team member knows and understands that our goal is for each vehicle to be perfect. TMMK empowers team members to stop production to ensure that no defects are passed on to the customer.
