What were the challenges working with people of a different culture?
In my experience, I think the most different culture with our colleague is speaking private things with colleague. They like talking about their husbands, that they fight with husband. But in the office, general manager doesn’t like that. Most of them think over 30 still haven’t get married, they think it’s weird. They think you’re old enough. Some people they don’t think they are dirty, they never wash their hands. I saw many times. They sneeze in the office.
I try to avoid to talk about the topic, just talk about the gossip on the TV show. I was the administrative in the office, I have to keep the washroom clean. Sometimes I say that in the meeting, so the chief will tell them to do washing. Half of them are just graduated, around 22,23.
