Private Wealth Management Investment Specialist (Current Employee) – Honolulu, HI – July 29, 2018
One of the factors that drive the high performance work culture the bank has is the people. The teams that I've worked with during my time here at FHB have all been motivated team players with great attitudes. Everyone embodies the Aloha spirit and cares for eachother as they do for our customers.
Call center representative (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI – July 7, 2018
About 160-180 calls a day. I worked fulltime first and decreased later to a part time job. Since we got slowly ready to a military move again. Daily duties were assisting customers in their banking needs with checking, savings, credit-card accounts, loans, mortgages or online banking. As well as cross selling bank products.
the call center was like a big family, often pot-locks and more
Project Analyst (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI – February 27, 2018
This firm has a culture where energetic self-starter cannot thrive. People lack initiative and operate in a silo. They complain about how the place doesn't change but doesn't really do anything to make difference. Very low employee turn over in a sense that the firm has some people who've worked for 40 years and about to retire.
I worked in an IT department. The executive leadership was good but the mid-managers are frustratingly incompetent. After I quit, more people quit.
No career advancement for young, ambitious people. Like I mentioned, so many people who're over 60 doing absolute minimum til retire. This extremely low turnover works against younger talent. Whatever the job you've started with will be your job in next 5 years.
Help Desk/CSR (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI – February 19, 2018
Being born and raised in Chicago working on an island that is the furthest point away from any other land mass is very different. A lot was learned about the financial industry withing the state and internationally. Many different ethnic cultures intermingle and yet - being a century old organization - the corporate culture still harbors some old ways.
Awesome place to work, and an even better team of people!

Senior Mail Clerk (Current Employee) – Honolulu, HI – November 27, 2017
I have been one of the lucky ones to have started working for First Hawaiian Bank 25 years ago. With each passing year it gets better. I love and enjoy the people that I work with and appreciate them. They are like my continuing family. A typical day at work is on average busy and depending on the time of year it gets pretty hectic. I have learn things here from the bottom up and appreciate the bank lessons AIB. The culture here is very diverse which is a good things because you get to know each other and our backgrounds which makes working and meeting people very uplifting and interesting. The hardest part of the job is when we are busy which is quite often but, I have learned a lot on how to budget my time wisely. The most enjoyable part of the job is the People, I feel the importance of a good work ethics and personalities are essential to getting things done in a productive and timely manner. When we all work together for the same cause it makes things better.
TELLER (Former Employee) – Kapolei, HI – November 9, 2017
Branch location and management was a plus. Loved my supervisors and manager and some of employees. Up beat of amtospehere when no drama going on. Some were to childish for the job I believed. Loved the set Monday thru Friday schedules and half day on some Saturdays. I got to learned a number of bank operations such as personal and business loans. The job responsibilities and duties were not hard as long as you get the hang of it. The hardest part of the job is when your doing all you can to help the customers and they are talking to you like they know your job when in fact they have no clue.
love to work this place. My family relocated to California .
