Pay is ok for some of the work you do. Needs more compensation for other jobs we are told to do. If people are to be cross trained it would be nice to have extra incentives.

If you know anything about fishing equipment or bicycle components, you have heard of Shimano. They are a world-wide supplier of these items because they are the best at what they do. It's great to work for the leader in their industries. Senior management is extremely knowledgeable about their industries and plans the business operations in advance, instead of being reactionary, giving clear direction to middle management in order to set them up for success. They have high achievable standards, and expect all employees to focus on reaching those goals.

When they hire you they don't show you everything they show you the good stuff then once you start working there they let someone else train you and they threw you in the mix you have to work it out it's always a Time factor with them but it's lots of work for one person /6 people then you don't have a set time when you're getting off when the work gets done but then they want you back there early 5 o clock 6 o clock or whatever time they choose for you to come in
Pros
Other employees
Cons
Pay, shift, management

A lot of times you would have nothing to do. Would clean or make boxes most of the time. Very unorganized. Do not pay enough for position. there is no AC throughout the warehouse gets very hot especially where I was working, temps would read up to 93 and that's with fans and portable AC units.
Pros
Free massage
Cons
Short breaks

Supervisors could be better at communicating with their leads and associates. The people that work there are great and great to work with. Choose your poison wisely, one wrong word could turn everything around very quickly.

Shimano is a global corporation with it's headquarters in Japan. It can be difficult to navigate the business because of this. The American subsidiary has little control of what happens in the US. It's difficult to get things done. There are many people in management with far too much tenure and an overall lack of motivation and forward momentum. That being said, working for a place like this is important. It's a place to learn to persevere and to stay cool under immense pressure. The bike culture is great and there are a lot of really great people here. Just know that it's not going to be easy all the time and sometimes you're going to want to bang your head against the wall repetitively.
Pros
Discount, Bike Culture, Resume Job
Cons
Poor management, Very little female employment

Shimano is a supportive environment with great benefits and, particularly if you are a fan of cycling or fishing, a great place to make friends and engage in these past times.

Ever since the last Shimano family member has left the building the soul of the company has changed. It used to be a great company. Employees are not treated with respect and as a result the turnover was high. Leaders do not inspire! They began a monthly rally--- we all thought is was a great idea but the majority of the time its used to tell us where we came up short or to tell us we are not doing what we should.Great products keep the company going.
Pros
Great products to sell and company benefits.
Cons
Poor leadership.
