Toyota is More Selective than Harvard?

63,000 People In San Antonio Seek To Fill 2,000 Jobs At Toyota's New Factory:

A few interesting quotes in this article, which begins with:

“It is much harder to get a production-line job at Toyota than it is to get accepted into Harvard.”

The whole process that Toyota takes prospective employees through is something I've never seen at another company. Does your company have any sort of real screening policy, especially when faced with the challenge of hiring 2000 people?

Having knowledge of lean business and production systems is not high on Toyota's consideration list when selecting new employees, says O'Connell. Knowing the lean concepts “would mean nothing to Toyota because you're going to come in and you're going to learn the Toyota Way.”

The demand for Toyota jobs — does that refute the arguments, made by some, that Toyota is a harsh working environment, or does it say more about the San Antonio economy? What do you think?
