(Accepting company interview) Yoshida Furniture Store Co., Ltd.

(Accepting company interview) Yoshida Furniture Store Co., Ltd.

Responding to many requests from companies that are considering accepting foreign workers want honest opinions on accepting foreign technical intern trainees. Thanks to Mr. Yoshida, General Manager of the Recruitment consultant Department of Yoshida Furniture Store Co., Ltd., we were able to hear valuable stories. Q. Is there a reason why you wanted to accept technical intern trainees? I was aware of the importance of foreign workers for about five years. When I thought about how to deal with the overwhelming labor shortage that is coming in the future, I came up with the idea that we must aim for a company/organization that can develop human resources. Q. How did you choose the technical intern trainee? We conducted an online interview using Skype. Q. Do you have a special system to accept the technical intern trainee? Although we did not build a system in particular, we tried to provide mental care for existing staff. When this story was raised, the staff was worried, so after deciding to accept technical interns, we coordinated at the monthly conference on interviews, entry into the country, the situation at the training center, etc., and prepared the feelings of our staffs. Q. In the field of nursing care, technical interns have to pass the Japanese Language Test N4. Please give us your frank opinions about the technical intern's communication. It seems that the technical intern understands almost what is told. Perhaps there is a little time lag because she speaks after converting Japanese into her native language but it is not a problem. It has been about a month since she was assigned and her Japanese language skills seem to improve every day. Q. How is the technical intern working? Our users like her and give compliments such as “careful” and “notice well”. Q. Do you have any difficulties in teaching work? The facility has a rule that says "If you don't understand something you have to ask immediately", so if the technical intern hears anything that she doesn't understand she will ask immediately. Also, if there are words that she doesn't understand, she can look for meaning by smartphone immediately, so there is no hardship in teaching work. However, since it seems difficult to write down records (reports) in detail, but I think she will gradually get used to it.

(Accepting company interview) Care Support Yorokobi Co., Ltd.

Responding to many requests from companies that are considering accepting foreign workers want honest opinions on accepting foreign technical intern trainees. Thanks to Mr. Yoshino, Director of Care Support Yorokobi Co., Ltd.,  we were able to hear valuable stories. Q. Is there a reason why you wanted to accept technical intern trainees? Two or three years ago, a supervising organization came and talked about the existence of this training system. At that time there was no nursing care field in this system, so I was thinking lightly, but in the near future the nursing care industry, which is said to be short of about 550,000 people, will have to rely on overseas human resources. Therefore I want to accept technical interns to know-how and pipes by now. Q. Is there any merit of accepting technical intern trainees? I accepted technical interns in the hope that they would be a good stimulus for the existing staff, but our facility was actually revitalized by the stimulus. Q. How did you choose the technical intern trainees? We conducted an online interview using Skype. Q. How was the online interview? I am grateful to be able to interview without worrying about travel expenses. However, there were parts that were difficult to hear because the voice was interrupted and because they were interviews in Japanese, I could not communicate well and half was a bet (laughs) Q. Do you have a special system to accept the technical intern trainee? If I choose only one person to go to Japan, I felt sorry for being left alone, and I decided to accept two people. We are also making efforts to create an environment where employees can receive education and study. Q. In the field of nursing care, technical interns have to pass the Japanese Language Test N4. Please give us your frank opinions about the technical intern's communication. Immediately after the assignment, I was a little worried, but after a month, their Japanese comprehension has become better. Q. How is the technical intern working? They are serious and hard-working. When being taught a task, they always so that they will always remember the next day. The getting used to work was quicker than expected. Q. Do you have any difficulties in teaching work? I don't feel any difference in culture, and since they are trying to learn, I don't feel any difficulty in teaching work. There is a language barrier, but I think it is a matter of time. To be honest, there are other costs such as supervision and rent subsidies in addition to salary, and I have to prepare if something is missing in the dormitory, it's more expensive than hiring a Japanese. But because they are cute (like kids), I want to help them a lot (laughs).  Click here for Care Support Yorokobi website   Click here for the Supervision Association / Chiba Trading Cooperative

(Accepting company interview) Wakatsuki Car Co., Ltd.

In response to the many voices of companies that are considering acceptance of foreign workers using foreigner technical intern program and specific residence status in the automobile maintenance industry, we would like to share an interview with the director and sales managers of Wakatsuki Car Co., Ltd., 6th store - Mr. Muramatsu Jun. Wakatsuki Car Co., Ltd., 6th store Director, Sales Manager Mr. Muramatsu Jun Q.What made you decide to accept technical interns? A.To be honest, I wanted to improve the shortage of human resources (it's really not good but ...) and I hope that I could contribute to society. There was a client that accepted the technical interns, so we went to ask them for advice. After all there were a lot of worries, so we went to see the current situation and got a consultation. I decided there was no problem and give it a try. Q.How did you select technical interns? A.I went to Indonesia and interviewed. Q.Did you have any trouble before the technical interns came to the company after you decided to accept? A.There was nothing in particular. After deciding the apprentice, it took 4 months for the technical interns to enter Japan. It may take up to six months now. After entering Japan, the technical interns came to the company after one month of training. Q.How many technical interns does your company currently have? A.There were 3 people at the first acceptance in 2016. 2 more people in 2017 2 more people in 2018 2 more people in 2019 Currently there are 9 technical interns. As the first three will return home in May of this year, we are continuing with the recently arrived interns. Q.Which country are the technical interns from? A.The first 3 are from Indonesia. The other 6 people are from Philippines. Q.Why did you change the sending agency? Was there a reason? A.Indonesian technical interns were very serious, sincere, and really good people without bad habit. However, they had no knowledge of sheet metal and car maintenance, so they need to be taught from scratch. It took a year to be completly entrusted them with work. The sending agency in Philippines has interns with some knowledge. They could work after one month of guidance. We made such a decide by thinking about the immediate force, but the technical interns from Indonesia are really good and hardworking people, so it is a very good human resource if you are teaching from scratch. Q.Please let us know if you have any support for the technical interns. A.We do not do anything especially as a company. They prepare themselves and go to work. I have them do it themselves. Q.Do you support technical interns in learning Japanese? A.The Indonesian technical interns consulted with the union and hired one teacher to study Japanese. We do not do it in particular as company. Q.In terms of salary, considering the starting salary of graduated Japanese students is about 160,000~180,000 yen, there are voices that the salary for technical interns which is about 180,000~200,000 yen is too much. What do you think? A.We also pay 180,000~200,000 yen for technical interns and union fees. Our way of thinking is the technical interns who came to Japan from foreign countries contribute to the growth in technology. The teamwork of the company has also improved. I feel that the merits are more than the amount of money we pay. Q.Were you thinking of accepting technical intern continuously from the beginning? A.I was thinking of waiting to see how the first technical interns work. Then, I could see that they are really good people, and there are a lot of things that I want to do in the future, so I decided to put in more  interns every year. I talked to our employees and ask them to work together for contributing to society. Q.Are you satisfied with your current union? A.Currently we have technical interns from three unions. The support system is completely different depending on the union. Some unions always visit the company every month to talk to the technical interns and take care of them. But some unions can not come right away due to distance problems so they can only make phone calls. We are especially satisfied with the union who visits and takes care every month. Q.It will be eligible for residence status in the field of automobile maintenance with specific skills in the future. Do you have plan to continue employment of technical interns or to hire personnel with specific skills? A.Of course.
