We believe that working at TMMC is the “Lexus” of jobs. And we want people who work here to feel the same way. If you're thinking of applying, make sure you can meet the demands of working production – including shift work, manual labour, mobility, and more. If you can, we believe the rewards are second-to-none.
The Recruitment Process
Completing the online application for our Production Team Member opportunities will require approximately 30 minutes of uninterrupted time.
You will answer details about the type of employment you're looking for, your behavioral preferences, and your work experience. These will help us understand a little more about you, your work habits and your qualifications.
The second step is the aptitude test. This test will take place in the computer lab on the campus of one of our local colleges. It takes approximately 2 hours to complete.
The midway point of our recruiting process is the work simulation. It takes place in the Assessment Centre at our Cambridge location. This 4 hour activity will expose you to the physical demands of the job.
The final step prior to a job offer is the interview. Representatives from manufacturing and human resources team will gather additional information about your responses on the application. As well, they will ask you behavioural questions to assess your fit with the TMMC environment.
If you're offered a job, you'll start as a contract Team Member. Contracts can be renewed every 3 months. Twice a year we analyze long-term business needs in order to determine the number of contract Team Members who can be hired as permanent Team Members.
Every job demands different skill sets and our standards are very high. You should know that working production can also be physically and mentally demanding. But, you’ll be part of an incredible, high-performing team exposed to constant improvement and innovation, and that is very rewarding.
“Working as a skilled trade team member with cross functional teams of engineering, production and administration professionals, we use the latest technology and equipment and make significant improvements that help produce better cars and benefit Team Members, such as installing an automated guided vehicle (AGV) to move heavy parts.”
Quality is Not Negotiable
Building in quality means strictly following standardized processes and procedures. This can make production work very repetitive, but a slight deviation can change the overall output, impact timing on the line, or create safety concerns for you or your teammates. You’re counted on to do your job exactly as instructed, but also to point out any defects that you see. Quality is key to your – and our – success.
Production jobs require you to work rotating shifts – days and afternoons. For example, our North plant day shift operates from 6:50 AM to 3:20 PM and afternoons from 5:35 PM until 2:05 AM. When production demands are high, you will also be expected to work overtime and weekends. You are rewarded for these efforts with shift premiums for afternoon shifts and overtime pay.
Be prepared to be mobile. TMMC has three plants: 2 in Cambridge and 1 in Woodstock. You may work in any of these locations depending on production demand.
When you work at TMMC you work with the best. Our plants, our people and the vehicles we build have won many of the industry’s most prestigious awards. When you accept a Contract Production Team Member role, you’ll receive:
- Starting Pay: $20.22 per hour, plus shift premiums and overtime pay (as applicable)
- Semi-annual bonus
- Health Care Benefits, Vacation Pay, and Skills Development opportunities
- Special Equipment, Safety Equipment & Tools
- An allowance for Uniforms
