Attendance Clerk (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI – November 27, 2017
I really enjoyed my time here, really sad to leave. The staff and students were great to work with. The location of the school site and property was very beautiful, we had amazing ocean views from our office. It was a private self funded school.
Flexible with time off, great support with co workers.
If you live in Hawaii, Kamehameha Schools is one of the best place to work.
Counselor (Current Employee) – Kahului, HI – October 13, 2017
It would be really difficult for me to leave my position at Kamehameha Schools. As staff, we are taken care of and valued by our institution. I am looking for another opportunity to move away due to personal reasons and family obligations.
Teacher's Assistant (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI – September 30, 2017
It was amazing opportunity to work for the High school that I attended and the way they treated us as employees were both respectful and helpful. The teachers did a great job helping the students learn more or become interested in the STEM field, and for me personally, it was a very rewarding program to be a part of.
Security Offi (Current Employee) – Honolulu, HI – May 16, 2017
Working at Kamehameha .Schools is a large campus and covers many facilities. You need to know the entire campus and how to respond quickly. Such as, every entrance/exits and where the alarms or emergencies are occurring. Must good report writing skills. Leg with the public, students and staff. Every day is not routine, over 20 plus events and hundreds of people and vehicles come on campus.
Knowing you are providing a safe environment for students, staff and the public.
School Bus Driver (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI – May 4, 2017
No matter who you are, the staff as well as the parents and alumni takes good care of the transportation drivers. Lots of hours to work with equal work given to all drivers. Loved working and meeting students who I built long friendships with as well as their parents.
Cook 3 On Call (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI – February 13, 2017
Very nice facility, very big kitchen, state of the art equipment, very big staff....and always very busy. But it was always centered around one thing ...the students of Kamehameha and the Legacy of Bernice Pauahi Bishop.
Free lunch, preview to all foodservice functions outside of work.

Administrative Coordinator Assistant (Former Employee) – Wailuku, HI – November 4, 2015
I learned a lot about how to effectively teach a young child and how to be a positive role model in their life. Being that we are the first educators they experience, I tried to make learning fun and memorable. Kamehameha Schools really takes care of their employees.
Assistant (Former Employee) – Kailua-Kona, HI – September 24, 2015
I enjoyed working with my co-workers. The work also kept me busy and I learned a lot about the education side of the company. The office was growing and trying to incorporate all different divisions into one was hard at first but it got better
The workers were great, we did have alot of trip to Oahu to the main office on Oahu
Sad what is happening now. Very poor upper management have lost sight of the Princess' vision. No true Aloha. No values. It's all about the $$$$
Manager (Former Employee) – rather not say but on a neighbor island – July 23, 2015
Long, thankless days. Snotty and snooty upper management. (corporate at Kawaiaha'o Plaza. Yes, them! They have no clue what a servant leader does or how to work with human beings. Dee Jay, Sylvia, Lauren...we miss you so much!!!! Now, it's just about the numbers and selfie pats on their own backs. They even hand out little stars for us to put on their goals. Who do they think got them to reaching those goals anyway? Not them! The most enjoyable part of the job is the camaraderie among the other worker bees like me. I'm outta' there. Enough is enough.
Support from my teammates
All the changes and no communication from upper management since Dee Jay, Sylvia and Lauren left. Boo hoo. I'm sad. :(
Summer School Aide (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI – July 2, 2015
I worked for the Summer with children that ranged from the ages 4-5. A typical day at work would be supervising the children playing in the morning, then I would take them to pool and help them swim for 40 minutes at a time. I learned to have a lot of patience during this job. We would rotate the children throughout the day between the different activities. The management I worked for was amazing and very energetic. My coworkers were other students that either graduated from Kamehameha or currently in school. Everyone I worked with were great and were very helpful. The hardest part of the job was trying to gain the trust of the non experience swimmers. I would usually have the group that didn't really know how to swim. This was also the most enjoyable part of the job. It was a great feelings to see them progress, learn and even jump towards me with full confidence. I enjoyed helping the children learn the basics of swimming and it was great to see their excitement grow throughout the summer.
