User's Voice

“Impressed by their professionalism!”

Age: 33

Nationality: Chinese

Major: Engineering

Japanese level: Entered a university in Japan.

Experience: 0 years of engineering experience.

Training period:A month

Reasons for choosing us:
Since I decided to change jobs, I wanted to have a solid training system.
Also, I didn't want a company with a lot of overtime, until late at night, and a low salary.

Under such circumstances, I met a top engineering recruiter and my current boss.
I was impressed with the polite response and the high level of human resources that was completely different from my previous company.
For example, I was helped to find a residence, as well as on unclear points about my work. They also carefully talked me through my visa.                                             

“Workplace with many friends”

Age: 29

Nationality: Vietnamese

Major: Graduated from Department of Mechanical Engineering at a local university in Tonam

Japanese level: Only a little, before I arrived!

Experience: 6 years of engineering experience. Engaged in designing engine-related parts at Japanese automakers locally and in Japan.

Training period: A month

Reasons for choosing us:
The point that foreign nationality was actively regarded as valuable -- their attitude was good.
This company has engineers of various nationalities.
I think that it is a good workplace if there are a lot of colleagues who have come to Japan and have had those experiences.
I wanted to work without any discrimination based on nationality like that I experienced in my previous job.

Beside better conditions, such as salary, my new job's colleagues have an understanding of different cultures. This is one of the reasons why I chose this company.
When hiring foreigners, they explained a lot of things that many applicants would be wondering about.
For example, from the time of the interview, I had guidance for the visa procedure, finding a guarantor for my apartment, and handling my skills, experience and future career
                                            

“Comfortable workplace and life”

Age: 35

Nationality: USA

Major: Graduated from a mechanical engineering department at a state university in the United States

Japanese level:None, before I got here.

Experience: 8 years of engineering experience. After working for three and a half years at a local automobile-related manufacturer, I came to Japan to get involved in the development of autonomous driving.

Training period: A month

Reasons for choosing us:
There were a lot of projects I wanted to work on.
I really like Japanese car manufacturers.
I wanted to work on a project at a Japanese automaker someday.
Thanks to you, I was able to achieve it faster than I expected.
I have a few apprehensions about studying Japanese, but I hope that I can overcome that!

The company dormitory was in a really convenient area. Honestly, you can live a comfortable life without a high rent burden in Japan
