Why are you applying for this job?

Actually, I have three reasons.
Firstly, I sympathized with your company's vision.
I felt that your company's interior design items lead to a more comfortable everyday life.
It is a low-priced product that even ordinary people can buy, so more people can enjoy it.
Secondly, It is about the way of working and the way of thinking of the staff.
They don't fall into individualism, and the staff have a sense of solidarity with each other.
I was very interested in the attitude of humbly working, respecting cost awareness and common sense, and communicating in an open manner without hiding.

1. This is an alternative synonym you could use.
That's alright. How well versed are you about our services? Are you able to draw customers to purchase our goods and services?

I think your company's products are simple and cheap, but fashionable, functional, high quality and sustainable design.
Yes, I assert that it is a design that attracts many people.
These are not only to enrich your life, but you may also buy them as gifts for your acquaintances.
For example, various types of postcards and plastic bags with zippers are on sale and are also popular as gifts.
May I talk about the third reason?

1. This is an alternative clearer expression you could use.
You seem to be well versed in our company and have a good understanding of what we sell. Yes, you may continue giving your reasons.

The third is about working hours.
Japanese companies often think that overtime is inevitable.
On the contrary, your company recommends that the staff completes their work during working hours.
By spending private time, they interact with different people and have different experiences.
And by coming up with work ideas, I think they can create a company that will please many customers.
Therefore, I agree that I should try to finish all the work during working hours.

1. We don't start sentences using conjunctions. In this case, "and" is a conjunction that is why I removed it.
Yes, that is true. Our company firmly believes that it is important for our employees to be well-rested to perform at their best on the following day. Are you interested in our sales department?

Yes, I think that it is important it indeed.
No. I interested in your Visual Merchandising department.
I always want to propose a sales floor layout that is easy to see and find from the customer's point of view.
Furthermore, based on the seasons and themes, I would like to plan an exhibition of promotions that convey products attractively.
