Kama’aina Kids (Former Employee) – Kahului, HI – December 22, 2018
I think workers should be trained. The boss shouldn’t have a high expectation of the worker to know what to do when the boss really hasn’t trained the worker. I think it’s a good way to teach a lesson to a person though. To try to make it work for themselves but sometimes people aren’t gonna be all naturally at it. Some workers need the time put into training to be good at the job. Other than thatI had a good experience with learning my way to get my kids to listen to me.
Weekend day offs, Work only two hours and a half a day, Child experience
Behavioral Health Specialist IV (Current Employee) – Kaneohe, HI – November 13, 2018
Worked as a BHS. The job is great but little to no advancement. BHS's follow the typical school day. We have all federal holidays off, however, no breaks ( the week-long breaks) However you do get leave. it would be helpful to have a work from home option. Overall Hawaii is very behind.
Clerk III (Former Employee) – Kaneohe, HI – July 30, 2018
I loved working at this school. The Principal and Vice-Principal were most supportive. The office staff was encouraging and the educators at this school are top notch. Dr. Seuss Day was one of my favorite days. The school lunches are the best because the cafeteria staff at this school are awesome!

Teacher (Former Employee) – Kailua, HI – December 29, 2017
The Hawaii Department of Education has issues with monetary waste and favoritism. The school that a person works at makes a huge difference in whether they get support and respect from administration. Teachers do not get paid enough for what they do and struggle to make ends meet. It can be rewarding if your focus is only on students and you do not let the pressures of the system get to you.
Working with kids, professional collaboration, job security, good medical benefits
Not enough pay, poor organization at top levels, too much waste, favoritism
HS Transitions Teacher (Current Employee) – Pukalani, HI – December 29, 2017
It is a great high school to work at and I got the opportunity to meet all of the Freshmen that come through that school. I worked on introducing them to college and career readiness and sometimes they were not ready to hear about it but at least I got the ball rolling.
