A: Google translates it as: I was hired as the first staff of Japan branch

Sorry my Japanese grammar is not good enough to deconstruct the sentence but is sounds like maybe you are trying to say "I was hired as the first staff of the Japan branch."

That said, first staff sound like an odd expression. I am not familiar with its context or heard it used in the manner of the Google translation. A quick Google search shows First Staff to be an employee staffing firm. So maybe you mean "I was hired by First Staff at the Japan Branch."
