There was a recall?

Toyota had 0 cars listed in the most recent safety tests. Ford was #1 and for some completely unknown reason, Chrysler, a company that no longer makes its own cars (as close to 100% outsourced production as is possible) had a few models in the list.

Toyota's reason for failing: new testing on the roof of the car in addition to the sides. Rollovers are the 4th most common cause of death in car accidents and Toyota did absolutely nothing of their own volition to provide safety in that regard.

If its not tested then Japanese car companies don't provide safety for it. Seems a bit like the education system here, but unfortunately that's the way it goes. US car companies came away with flying colors after the new tests were implemented. Why? Because they build safe roofs even though the roofs weren't being graded. More cost to produce the car and less profit, but somebody might actually live when one of their cars rolls over.

Come to think of it tmarie, your connection to the company seems to stop at the interview. You claim to have left, but judging by the quality, content and comprehensibility of your posts, I would put my money on Dean Rogers having good people screening the candidates. You probably never got a call back from them. Did you?

tmarie, you sure do have an impressive resume on this man's company and are certainly more qualified to criticize him than you are to teach. I wouldn't let a shrewd man/woman/finger-pointer like you near any of my students. Your bitterness seems contagious and I like to keep my classrooms clean. I do hope you use that 99% bacteria cleaning soap to clean yourself of disdain before typing angry rants.

You've been to the Osaka office once...and you made crystallized and ironclad observation in 30 seconds that gives you some kind of backseat driver's license for the industry. (Pause for impressed whistling sound as I collect myself)

When I was a kid, I once visited the White House as part of a group tour. Does that mean my fifteen second glimpse of the Lincoln bedroom makes me a qualified candidate for president? Or does it simply mean nobody really wants to hear what I have to say, I wasn't elected to any position and I should probably keep my mouth shut and let others who want to produce something go about their business of producing it?

Guest, I like your logic. Stay lurking in the shadows, critical of everything others are trying to do to better their own situation and those who share their industry. Either you know nothing about the industry and are speaking from the perspective of blathering outsider, or you are part of the industry and have given up on trying to make any type of an improvement in your own situation or those surrounding you. Sarcasm, doubt, criticism and loathing have long been the calling cards of great innovators.

Maybe Dean Rogers will make a difference in the industry and maybe he won't. At least he's trying something other than criticism and complaining. Besides, I think this article is directed more at people who are interested in taking action to improve their situations while being willing to work at it, rather than waiting for others to simply give them more. If you deserve better then prove it. If not then at least sulk quietly.
