    I have been working at Hawaiian Telcom full-time

    Pros

    Nice people and goos location on Bishop St. Coming out of bankruptcy, HT is grateful to find workers in their 20s and 30s , who are tech savy and able to grow into a position.

    Cons

    Older generation requires patience to work with. Management is not technologically advanced, they play favorites and will not promote unless you serve 10+ years. Poor vision in management, too focused on the old ways of doing things and maintaining the status quo. No investment in employees as a resource.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more money/ promotions to retain talented workers. Get to know younger generation and help them to feel appreciated. Fire or transfer jaded employees to nonessential areas. Seniority should not be dominate form of compensation increase.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hawaiian Telcom (Honolulu, HI) in November 2014.

    Interview

    4 step interview process, I made it all the way until the 3rd interview which was the 'interrogation room' as I would call it. It's been a while since I've been a stay at home mom, but some of the questions they ask are just ridiculous and make you draw a blank. You have to either have a ton of experience or be a great liar to answer correctly the questions they ask and scenarios they give
