From an artical I read that I think was posted in the Daily Journal a while back stated that production workers would start out @ $15/hr. and top out was $21/hr. Can any one else confirm this as well? I have friend that works @ the Nissan plant in Canton, Ms and he said that it would definitly be a high paying job Nissan started out the same way as far as pay scale.

Yes, I read the same thing. I believe it was 15.50 starting, to topping out at 21.00 in three years.

Yes it's 15 an hour to start to 21 an hour, the proctor at the computer assessement made the same statement before we watched the video about toyota.

Like many others here (and even not looking here yet) I was seriously interested in working at the plant. I decided to do some research into what to expect. It seems Toyota has been working for a few years on a plan to lower their average wage in the US. It is starting to look like 15 bucks an hour and some over hyped benefits is what to expect. I KNOW how hard the work can be, and someone mentioned "multi-skilled" workers could expect 20 to 25 an hour. I don't think that's totally correct, the "multi-skilled MAINTENANCE" workers could expect that. Which is MUCH different than working on the line and requires a MUCH higher skill set (read the requirements on the applications for said positions). The more companies want to decrease employee pay the more it reminds me why unions were organized in the first place, they may have gone overboard not long ago, but now companies are doing a serious backlash against workers. I can only hope for those that take jobs with Toyota that when they realize they're not getting the dream job and opportunity they expected, that they get the chance to join a union. After all, it's obvious without unions in this country, we'd all be being treated like workers in China (Unions brought the average wage up for everyone, not just members). I've never belonged to a union and never saw their importance until I realized what's happening now. Especially after our tax dollars paid these companies millions of dollars in incentives to build and thus sell here, who's gonna be able to afford to live decent and afford the products? My guess is at 15 bucks an hour, a LOT of people are gonna walk away from these line jobs. I was hoping they'd be paying a bit higher, considering the work involved and lack of a union. Turns out, without a union it's just another shift work job. For now. Not too offend, just my observation. If allowed I'll post links to a few articles so others can be informed and make up their own minds and opinions.
I also did research into Toyota. The multiskilled maintence workers require no higher level of skill then a high school graduate. They will begin at 18 an hour and they top out at 25 an hour. Plus you get full benefits which is health dental and vision insurance. You get 12 paid holidays, vacation depending on how long you been with them, and you can participate in a vechile lease program. As for the jobs that pay 15 an hour, they get the same benefits, but doesn't require you even to have finished high school. Yes they are trying to lower wages, but you have to look at that the UAW is only paying 19 an hour to the workers that have been with them 5 to 10 years. Go to google type in Toyota benefits and you will find a list of the benefits they offer. So if it just 15 an hour, it better then other companies paying only 9 an hour around here.

.The only work simulation site is at ICC-Belden WIN Center. As far as I know that will be the only testing site set up for the day 2 testing.

If you are going for day 2 (work simulation) be ready for a real hard work out. These jobs are not for the weak or faint of heart.
