Flight benefits. Fairly steady job. No overtime.
Unless your direct manager has his/her own reason to promote you, you'll be stuck in the same position forever. The few locally hired managers are so desperate to secure their own positions and promotions. Most of the key management positions are reserved for the Japanese expats (unless you are a former expat who somehow miraculously manages to secure such a position as a local hire). So staff that have more experience will be passed over for promotions, and find themselves with a new inexperienced Japanese manager every 3 to 5 years or so. If you just want a secure job and steady income and happy to stay in the same position for decades this is the place for you.

Two interviews - fairly standard hiring process. Why this position? What is one of your strengths? Why this company? The questions were all fair, nothing unexpected or out of the ordinary. I got an immediate callback for a second interview the same day. The second day of the interview was basically exactly the same as the first, same questions, just with a higher level of management. There was also a very basic Microsoft Word test. Unfortunately the secretary did not explain the test all that well, but the employer luckily could tell that I still knew how to use the software.

No negotiation. Was presented with a contract, take it or leave it. Really can't negotiate at a Japanese company, not for an entry level position.
