Intern Interview

Intern
Honolulu, HI

I applied online and the process took 8 months - interviewed at Bank of Hawaii.

Interview Details – Online application, Phone interview (hr representative) , 3 one-on-one interviews either in person or via video conference, and final interview. During the interview representatives would ask typical resume questions to find out more about interviewee and how he or she will fit to their company's goals and culture. The interviewers had casual and comfortable presence to soothe the interview process.

Interview Question – Explain how you would design a car for a deaf person.   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Trust Interview

Trust
Honolulu, HI

I applied online - interviewed at Bank of Hawaii in July 2012.

Interview Details – 1 in-person interview with 4 different managers. No technical questions nor test. No walk around to meet co-workers & see the work environment(I needed this). About an hour long. No follow up interview. Laid-back questions and patient in waiting for the candidate's answer. Overall, the easiest interview I ever had. It almost felt insufficient and made me wonder whether the interviewees decided "No" quickly. Turned out they could tell who I am easily and it was "Yes".

Customer Care Representative Interview

Customer Care Representative
Kapolei, HI

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Bank of Hawaii in April 2012.

Interview Details – HR Personnel called me probably 3 days after resume submission. Phone interview with HR personnel. I believe HR person schedules next interview with the vp of the call center department. Discuss resume. What is good customer service? How comfortable are you in using computers? Call center personnel did not mention anything about benefits, pay or whatever. However, she toured me around the facility already. After a week HR called to offer the position. Asked me to come in and fill up papers and discuss more about the pay and benefits. It was roughly 3 weeks process before I actually started my orientation.
