your job needs to be your priority when you work there. They usually don't have cleaners and the Japanese standards are very high so you need to do some excessive cleaning that you will not be trained on but expected to do anyway. Managers are very strict and do not really care about your personal life, they just need someone to work, which is understandable but in some cases not ethical. There is not a high chance of progress, some people have been sales associates for more than 5 years. Overall, not the ideal job if you are a student as they do not tend to do less than 24 hours contracts.
