Reviews for Shimano American Corporation

Reviews - What employees say

2.50 Employees say

Company Culture

All supervisors receive the same instructions, so everyone is on the same page.

Support from management

Shimano is proud of the reputation it has earned in the marketplace, and does everything possible to maintain that high image.

Teamwork

Warehouse leadership stays on top of where things get slowed down, and address the slowdown as soon as possible.

Freedom to work independently

Everyone is expected to perform up to company standards, which doesn't leave much room for working independently in the warehouse.

Internal Communication

Lots of emails to track, but other departments don't necessarily understand how the warehouse processes orders, so they frequently have orders that need special attention.

Gender Equality

Everyone is encouraged to work without concern for gender.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I am an older person, and my acquired knowledge was appreciated and utilized when appropriate.

Career Development

There isn't a lot of movement within the warehouse. Once you're settled, you will probably be there for awhile because very few people leave willingly.

Overall compensation for your work

Shimano is not the highest paying employer, but they are competitive within the industry.

Office / Work Environment

It's a warehouse, not a luxury resort.

Environmental Friendliness

Shimano cares about the environment and expects all employees to behave accordingly.

Work-Life Balance

Sometimes, the orders that are received late in the shift require overtime to get them out the same day. There is lots of overtime required.

Company Image

They are the leader in their industry. That has been earned because they make excellent products, and stand behind them.

Job Security

No one has a job for life, except an owner. The company has been around for 97 years. As long as you are performing, and hitting goals, you will have a job with Shimano.

Handicapped Accessibility

It's a warehouse. Persons with disabilities are given opportunities to work, if they can perform their duties up to company standards. Accessibility is not an issue.

Workplace Safety

Very few, if any, safety problems. All are expected and encouraged to work safely.

Challenging Work

There is always something new to learn in order to meet customer expectations. The customer is King!

Inclusive / Diverse

It's a melting pot!

Suggestions for improvement

  • There isn't much to improve.

What I like about the company

If you have an idea about a way to improve something, and you have gained enough knowledge about why things are done the way they are, any operational improvement ideas are given serious thought.

What I dislike about the company

Sometime there is more last-minute overtime than expected.

Racist

Workplace Safety

The building is old and I don't know if it complies with OSHA standard as I work on short term only. They did not provide training unlike my previous job that everytime they change software we are trained.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Trust people that works with the company. Train your employee to be nice and professional. Nobody will last if you scared to lose your job if so don't hire then they don't need back up staff.

What I like about the company

Nothing exciting as I worked for a month

What I dislike about the company

People always talk behind your back and not tell what they want. Not a good place to work. Sorry I felt insulted so rude.
