Hi Terisa, thanks for your question!
Work hours, from what I see, seems to be more cutthroat on average. The gym salespeople work 10-12 hours a day, seven days a week, with 3 days of break a month.
Many shops open until 10 or 11pm, and they open anywhere from 8-10am. The same person opens and closed shop.
Work culture differs depending on industry. A friend I met here says that her job is relaxing and does not go past 8 hour shifts. However, she does not have a set work schedule and often works the graveyard shift. This is in the hotel industry.
Other than meeting people who are in various industries here, I personally don’t deal with any Taiwanese companies.
