    ProsThe people are amazing; they are always willing to give you a hand and overall are just very kind. Family-like environment.

    ConsI do not see much room for career growth within the company. The company itself is a bit disorganized and people work long hours for low pay. The start salary is the same nationwide and it does not make sense because some areas have a much higher cost of living than others.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be so hierarchical and listen to what the sales reps have to say as they are the ones who experience it all first hand. Taking what they say into account may help the company grow a lot more than just assuming you understand it all.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good first career building company, not for the long term

    Sales Representative (Current Employee)

    Can become familiar with logistics of importing and exporting of food products.
    Will hear many insider information on upcoming restaurants.

    Management does not explain some decisions they make.
    If you cannot speak Japanese, Chinese, or Korean, it will be very difficult.

    Not a place to work for more than a year. Working here until retirement is something you really don't want to do.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsYou don't need good ability to get promoted. All you need is a good "LUCK" and be a real good flatterer.

    ConsNo motivation whatsoever. Drivers, sales, warehouse and office ladies all have 0 motivation. Management class doesn't know how to motivate their employees.
    No future vision.
    The management class cares only about the sales amount of current month!!! Nothing more!!!
    The sales amount will affect management class only, nothing much to the each sales!!!
    The company doesn't have system to provide a good working environment.
    The company has been sued several times for various reasons from employees and also from interviewees!! Search the internet for details!

    Advice to Senior ManagementThink more and take better care of your employees. Hire high school graduates, not undergraduates!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A company only to gain skills and knowledge of the Japanese food market

    Sales Representative (Current Employee) South San Francisco, CA

    ProsThe best reasons to work for Nishimoto Trading is that you can become multi-tasking and efficient, get used to working for long hours, and if you need an H1-B, get a full sponsorship for that. A great step up company if you are hard-working and thinking about working at another company with a good pay but you currently do not have the sufficient skills and knowledge to get qualified.

    ConsThe pay seems so low to you if you work hard. The people do not have a decent command of the English language. So you must be able to speak Japanese.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more to its hard-working employees. Buy a better infrastructure. Make products catalogs. Develop the websites, Do not stay within the very tiny Japanese society in the US. You can do better!!

    Good place for people who need H1B visa.

    Sales Associate (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsProvides Visa for foreign students and pay is decent. The company will pay for visa fees as well. New graduates learn how to communicate, and learn to do business. Counting money, calculating, being punctual, and handling multiple tasks at the same time. You learn the restaurant business inside out, and many sales associate will try to start their own restaurant.

    ConsWork hours are long, and there is no upside for working and doing well here. Work hours are very long. Sales will work from 8:00 to 21:00 on average. Terrible communication with management, and other departments. You need to be Japanese to become top management. Non-Japanese can only go so far.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployee motivation is 0. Management need to learn to motivate employees whether through recognition or bonuses.

     

    supportive atmosphere

    Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)

    Prosco-workers are courteous and friendly
    supervisor is open to innovative plans and suggestions

    Conslittle opportunity of growth
    sometimes instructions and expected job responsibilities could have been more clear

    Advice to Senior Managementrequiring more professional training could be helpful for new employees
