A Day in the Life of a Toyota Tundra Factory Employee

While surfing the internet, we came across this video showing a day in the life of a Toyota San Antonio factory employee. Check it out:
There is a lot of use of the word “Texas” and “local” in this video and we wonder if Toyota is getting ready to barrage the local media with this messaging as it relocates their headquarters. escortcity.ch We don’t have anything official on this yet.

What a difference in culture and attitude when compared to the RAM/Dodge workers from a few years back who smoked weed and drank alcohol during their lunch breaks–then got their jobs back!
There’s definitely pride beaming from the Toyota workers. This is the second time I’ve heard of this. A few months back I had some TSB work done to my Tundra. It gave me and the service manager a chance to chat for more than 30 minutes uninterrupted. He told me of his trip to the San Antonio plant for a tour. The one thing that stood out to him the most were the smiles the assemblers had.
It’s a proven fact that happy employees are more productive and produce higher quality work.
One of the best parts is that not one penny of the cost goes into the pockets of UAW management people who don’t build anything. Employees, customers and stock holders what else is needed to build a truck?
Living and working in Texas building trucks, I wonder how many of those Toyota people get up each morning and while driving to work say “If only I was living and building trucks in Detroit”?
Guess I will chime in too LOL
There is no question about it; the Tundra is the best built lasting half ton on the market.
Is it perfect? No it is not. Do the Dealers always do what they are supposed to? No they do not. But as a whole more Toyota dealers do a far better job on service and warranty work than Ford, GM, and Ram. It is not even a close comparison. I have been driving half ton trucks since the early 1960’s. That statement is made based on my 50 year experience with over 14 Ford dealers in Houston, 6 in Dallas, 6 GM dealers in Houston, 5 GM dealers in Dallas and a couple of Ram dealers in each city.
One of the major reasons Toyota dealers do a far better job on service and warranty work than the other three brands is because the Tundra is made much better right out of the “box” than any other brand. It’s that simple. It all goes back to San Antonio.
Thank You San Antonio for making my Tundra!
