I worked at TS Tech North America full-time
Good Company Culture - Good people, hard working and isn't extremely corporate America, its more corporate Japan
Great Benefits- Considering the current situation with healthcare the benefits are great
Good Place - if entry level, you will get good experience
Japanese Culture- you definitely get exposure to the Japanese culture, respect for suppliers(for the most part), and loyal to its employees- they respect hard work, but within the office they still have a ways to go when it comes to promoting women, and Americans are limited on their upward mobility (especially if you do not speak Japanese)
Laid Back Environment- Not too fast paced, and they wear uniforms
Low Wage- Considering the amount of manual work involved, they do not have good systems
Japanese culture - Deeply rooted which has its good points as stated above, however no upward mobility, Americans can only get so far on the ladder and women are mostly NOT promoted. Some of the Japanese(mostly expats) can be distant and some of the higher ups will not speak to you or acknowledge you. Those who are from Japan stick to the cultural norms, respect people who are higher than you AND do what you are told AND the senior person is always right. Likely some of the Japanese in higher positions are similar to Americans, they have a "big head"
Advice to Management
I think most of the managers do a decent job, I would say that some may need a little training; otherwise, just do your best to engage and develop your employees. Even though they may not have the chance to be promoted, since most are young adults, you can at least ensure they are ready for the next job.
I applied online. I interviewed at TS Tech North America in August 2017.
I applied for the Quality Control Engineer position. After 2 month, recruiter mailed me and asked me for more details. I gave my details and then nothing. Again after a month she contacted me and ask me for a interview with HR Manager and QC Manager.
Worst thing is I applied for Quality Engineer position and during the interview HR manager told me that they are interviewing for Quality Coordinator!!! Then they realize there mistake and from that point on-wards, it was just a formality.
Let us know if we're missing any workplace or industry recognition –
