Efficient, Welcoming, and Warm
Assistant Item Processing Supervisor (Former Employee), Honolulu, HIApril 11, 2013
A typical day at work can be characterized as a structured sprint towards quickly approaching, daily deadlines while keeping the utmost care in accuracy. Everyone (in Items Processing) are assigned specialized tasks but are able to fill in for each other. Also, everyone is knowledgable and willing to help. Management is very adaptive and quick to "put – more... out fires".

I loved the challenge, I loved the responsibility of an entire bank's end of day operations in my hands.

In all honesty, although I was released I do wish to return to First Hawaiian Bank. – less

First Hawaiian Bank is a very nice and caring place to work. My managers are very helpful and always available to assist.
Account Service Representaive (Current Employee), Honolulu, HISeptember 29, 2012
Pros: we do have afford lunches $5 and mini pales at $3.50
Cons: pay raises. economy keeps going up and pay raise stays the same
We do have a Gym in the building with zumba classes, and other classes available to us. My typical day at work is getting thru my audit journals, letters and assisting branches wih some rush orders as requested. We learn somethig new everyday as a new situation occurs. My coworkers are like my second family. The hardest part of my job would be audit – more... deadlines. The most enjoyable part of my job would be making our customer happy and assisting them with a rush request and meeting that deadline. – less

Favoritism plays big role
Part-time Teller (Former Employee), Aiea, HawaiiSeptember 6, 2012
Pros: healthcare, lunches
Cons: management, pay raise, co-workers
I was working here for about 3 years when I felt that people who work hard get no where. Staff was always short so we always had to work harder. Managers never really cared about staff and yearly raises showed so. I felt like I was being treated by management very unfair and always picked on.

I was very happy at First Hawaiian Bank for the 10 years that I was employed there. My day consisted of all phases administrative work. While employed there I learned alot about the financial industry from the inside. I only left First Hawaiian Bank for what I thought was a better opportunity in location and upward financial mobility.
