Bank Teller (Former Employee) –  Princeville, HISeptember 15, 2018
It is a nice place to work. You are exposed to different people which is a good training on how to handle people with different personalities. Sometimes it gets challenging but you just need to pay attention to the task

Universal Banker (Former Employee) –  Kahului, HIJuly 15, 2018
NO SHORT BREAKS, ONLY LUNCH BREAKS. Manager talks about teamwork but not all departments have good teamwork. Lots of work but does not pay well. They should pay their employees with fair share. Other banks pays better.
Pros
Most co-workers were nice and supportive.
Cons
No short breaks, ONLY LUNCH BREAKS. Manager say teamwork but not all departments have good teamwork.

Toxic Work Environment
Mortgage Loan Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Honolulu, HIJune 7, 2018
The bank would rather seek to bring in individuals at their competitors than to promote internally.
There is the clique mentality, similar to what exists in high school, and unless you are part of the popular crowd, you are not considered for advancement.

Plan on working to death. Only the strong survive. Need to have tough skin and a positive mindset to get through each day. Trust no one as management uses blind copy on emails.

Job security is good here knowing that they have been around for years.
Operations Analyst (Former Employee) –  Kapolei, HIMarch 2, 2018
Company is cut throat. Felt that corporate management only treated employees as a body that can always be replaced. If you're looking at getting into the finance/banking industry Bank of Hawaii is a good start.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Schedules may not be flexible as you want it to be.
