How many days off per year?
120 days. The work schedule follows the company calendar, but employees get two full days off per week.
Also, employees are granted paid vacation days from the day they join the company, and we encourage employees to take paid vacation time. (The number of paid vacation days depends on the month in which the employee joined the company.)
However, as manufacturing jobs involve shift work, the conditions of paid vacation time may differ.
What is the average age of employees?
The average age is 38.1. Our company is characterized by a workplace in which employees flourish through friendly competition, regardless of seniority.
Are there any foreign employees?
We have many foreign employees. We have employees from countries such as China, Mongolia, Colombia, and Indonesia working not only in manufacturing jobs but also globally in overseas sales, etc. Our recruitment process focuses on the individual and their career rather than nationality or gender.
Can I work remotely?
Rather than “work from home,” we use the term “remote work,” and aim to provide a flexible way of working. These flexible ways of working include “working with people from the same department but at different sites,” “reducing office work as much as possible by developing the online environment,” and “using flex work to fit one’s lifestyle,” etc.
However, manufacturing jobs require working at the factory and thus, remote work is not possible.
Do you offer support for childbirth and childcare?
We hope you work with us for a long time at each life stage.
We strive to create an environment that makes it easy to work for our female employees by offering maternity leave, childcare leave, and reduced working hours for childcare after returning to work.
There is also an increasing number of male employees who take childcare leave.
Is it possible to commute by car? (Shizuoka workers)
Yes. We provide a free parking lot for employees at each of our sites.
Most of our Shizuoka workers commute by private car, and we also offer a gas allowance (with an upper limit).
What is the code of conduct?
The code of conduct outlines in detail “how employees should act and behave” in their daily routine.
By implementing the code of conduct, we aim to establish a corporate culture that allows employees to work with confidence and pride both as an individual and as a team, where all the people who work at Sunsho Pharmaceutical share the same values and continue to grow towards the same high goals, and where we can explore new business opportunities and challenges.
For previous mid-career hires, what kind of professional backgrounds did they have?
Many people have joined us from industries other than the pharmaceutical/health food industry, and have contributed greatly to our business by leveraging their previous experiences. We have hired people with many different professional backgrounds and positions, such as from pharmaceutical companies, financial securities firms, machinery manufacturers, food manufacturers, and IT companies, etc. People who have joined us have successfully achieved at Sunsho Pharmaceutical what they could not achieve at their previous workplace or had hoped to try out.
