Permit Clerk (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI – May 13, 2017
Very laid back atmosphere, no one day is ever the same. Great meeting new people on a daily basis, customer service is number one priority. Reading different building plans, obtaining the correct documents, verifying lots and their dimensions are primary responsibility to this type of position. Slow paced at times but can get very busy and hectic.
Excellent co-workers, but I'm not a good match with my boss
Secretary (Current Employee) – Honolulu County, HI – April 6, 2017
Excellent people to work with, and attention is paid by management to minimizing work stress. I highly recommend the city, I would stay if I were a better personality match with current boss, but not her fault.
Volunteer/Junior Leader (Former Employee) – Mililani Town, HI – January 17, 2017
Throughout the years, I have always been attending the Summer Fun Program every summer. One year, I've decided to volunteer as a junior leader. By doing so, I've connected myself with not only the kids, but with the staff as well. Strengthening my communication skills was a success along with working well with others. I was able to complete tasks on time and successfully as well.
CEO Program (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI – October 11, 2015
Working for the city and county of Honolulu was fun. I learned data entry, and basic clerical work. I became close with my supervisor and my manager, they were excellent at keeping up with things. My co-workers were very polite and helpful, and they would always help me learn new and easy ways to get my job done fast and better. The hardest part of my job was leaving, and the most enjoyable part of it was being able to help troubled youth and help organize activities and fundraisers to better the youth build program.
Engineering Technician V (Current Employee) – Honolulu, HI. – March 22, 2015
Unless you are a highly educated professional, you should pass on working for the City and County of Honolulu. I have been employed there for many years and all you'll get is a lot of stress, have to pay out a lot of money for health care and little to no support from your superiors.
Program Assistant (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI – July 11, 2014
Resolve situations between teens. Plan activities for teens. Be role models to teens. I learn that even teens have problems with homework or not getting along with other teens. Hardest part is when teens use violence for solving their problems and trying to them down. Fun part is interacting with them.

Engineering Support Technician II (Current Employee) – Honolulu, HI – January 14, 2014
Due to the short duration I cant give a great deal of detail however it did open my eyes to almost every part of a contractors work from reviewing plans to installation of flooring, counters, electrical work, site maintenance and equipment maintenance. None of it was hard mentally but physically could be demanding.
Payroll Clerk (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI – August 7, 2013
Answering emails, phone calls. Posting overtime slips. Verify timecards with hours claimed. Handling pay discrepencies for officers. I also took on this job to learn and grow within an accounting environment. My co-workers and management were the best I could hope to lean under. The hardest part was learning military time. All shifts had different pay scales, all on military time. The most enjoyable part was the interaction with my officers and co-workers.
