GOLD ON Hinode-cho Vice Floor Manager    Takashi Hayashi


After 14 years, I was assigned to the store management position. At the start, I was nervous and full of anticipation. Each region has its own characteristics and differing clientele, so management can't be done based on a uniform manual. It becomes a series of trial and error. There is a wide range of business tasks, including monthly management plans, new pachinko machine selections and employee management, and everyday the main focus is how to improve the parlor. In my new position as a store manager, the big difference was the fact that the general manager was no longer there to back me up, and I am responsible to lead operations for every decision I make. I do find it difficult at times for being unable to advance sales as anticipated due to my lack of experience. But, with the increased responsibility, I have been given more decision-making opportunities. This has boosted my motivation even more, and simultaneously, reminds me of the important weight of responsibility to continually run a business 365 days a year. While creating a popular pachinko parlor that can be enjoyed by our customers, I hope to also achieve trust with increased sales results to be considered for future floor manager positions in newly developing stores in the Amusement Division.


Chofu Kaikan Vice Floor Manager    Masatake Hashimoto


While I was working part-time at a parlor, the floor manager at the time gave me the chance to apply for a full time position, and that's how I began my career here. Later, at the 4th parlor where I am presently, I was assigned the position as vice floor manager, and given the opportunity to be in charge of store operations and management. I used to have a self-centered mindset in some decisions, but as my involvement with training younger employees increased, I felt the encouragement that can be gained through working together with colleagues, and I now approach work with a much more humble attitude. As much as I feel the weight of responsibility which comes with the new position, I also feel in about the same proportion, an increased sense of motivation and achievement when decisions I had made were effective in raising the satisfaction index of customers, and we receive positive reactions. I am concurrently involved with real estate related tasks as well as operations at the present parlor, enabling me to engage with the new type of business operations which differ from my previously accumulated experience with a refreshed enthusiasm. While working on real estate information in the nearby area of the parlor and the base of operations, I hope to further my knowledge in information gathering and the real estate business to be able to advance future developments. And, I hope to mature as a valued member of the workforce in real estate operations in the future as well.


GOLD ON Soshigaya Floor Chief    Hiroki Naramoto


Presently, I work at the Gold On Soshigaya Parlor as part of the Amusement Division. I am mainly involved with customer services and sales management at the pachinko parlor, while learning about general store operations and management on a daily basis. Without a seniority system, the company culture of Yunika creates an encouraging workplace environment that motivates me greatly. I have been given the chance to learn from observing various senior employees and my superiors at work. In order to catch up and then surpass them, I endeavor to always consider what is necessary for myself to mature as I work. As a Yunika employee, I first learned about 'what it means to be working member of society' and 'how to be a leader'. As our business involves interaction with customers, it continually requires assessing the situation, considering what the other person needs and what is required to make that happen. So, my way of thinking has changed and I feel that I am gradually being rebuilt part by part into a new type of person. I hope to continue recognizing the parts I lack, envision what kind of person I want to become, and while taking care to fulfill my present role, keep focused and enjoy my work.


GOLD ON Soshigaya Vice Floor Chief    Akane Abe


My work mainly involves customer services at the parlor and the prize exchange counter, as well as store management and operational tasks such as WEB management in updating our parlor website and maintenance of the largest LED vision screen in the Tokyo metropolitan installed in our parlor. 'Efficiency' is my motto. I am conscious of placing a priority order while handling tasks and before starting a new project, to fully understand the objective. If I am unsure of anything, I can ask questions until I am satisfied in knowing what is required of me to carry out my work. I believe this kind of workplace environment is made possible thanks to having considerate superiors. In regards to prize exchange services which I have been involved with since my days as a part-time employee, I was a fumbling rookie at the start, making a series of mistakes. Now, I am involved with the overall process of prize exchange services, such as being in charge of the layout for renewals. Handling not only part of a task but the overall process builds confidence, and it has helped me realize the importance not giving up and to keep focusing efforts into daily tasks. Seeking to better myself and mature as a person, I worked to be promoted as a full-time employee. Everyday, I am grateful for the support by my colleagues, enabling me to slowly but surely improve myself as a person. And in order to keep improving, I aim to put my best efforts into my work.
