I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at First Hawaiian Bank (Honolulu, HI) in July 2015.
First interview with local guy in his 50s. Acted like he knew a lot about computer science, but only surface educated and hobbist-level in my opinion. Did not take kindly to suggestions and ideas I made about the project he envisioned for this job. Was looking for a "yes-man" to do all the coding and receive no credit if the project was a success. Did not keep last person in this position past the probation period. Project was a failure and he needed someone to take the fall. Second interview was better, but I decided the work environment wasn't for me and received offers at other companies.

The process took 3 days. I interviewed at First Hawaiian Bank (Honolulu, HI) in June 2007.
Since I was leaving my job on REALLY good terms my CEO offered a recommendation for me. He made the initial contact for me and all I had to do was follow up. I choose to take the offer at First Hawaiian Bank vs another local bank because of the job description. I had an initial interview with HR and an interview with my CEO's contact and was offered a job the next day.
- I didn't really have any difficult questions. Be prepared to answer questions about how long you expect to live in Hawaii and what brought you there if you aren't local. Answer Question
I was able to negotiate a tiny increase in salary but that was it. I was already starting higher than others. Pay at FHB is bad.
