    Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Honolulu, HI
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hawaiian Electric Company (Honolulu, HI).

    Interview

    Standard set of questions, standard set of disclosures. 3 people in a conference room. Feel like the hiring process is a formality and they are just required to interview a few outside candidates so that they can promote within.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Honolulu, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hawaiian Electric Company (Honolulu, NC) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Hiring process took a long time from initial application to date of hire. I was asked to apply directly through the website. Panel interview consisted of a pretty standard line of questioning. Interview panel consisted of the hiring managers and HR representative. It took several weeks before I heard back, so I explored other offers, but ultimately selected this one.

    Designer II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Honolulu, HI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Hawaiian Electric Company (Honolulu, HI) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The questions are not ad lib, they all came from prepared documents from HR including all of the standard disclaimers and the necessities that ensures that they are in full compliance with various labor regulations. Very few questions deviated from the script, and no technical questions were posed for this entry level engineering position. All the qualifications need to be included within the resume, otherwise, the posed interview questions will not help to reveal or extract that information during the interview, even if you wanted to say so.
    The standard review period post-interview is usually 2 weeks, but it took almost 2 months for my results to be conveyed via email, after I had sent a request to the HR department asking about the status of the applied position.

    Fiscal Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hilo, HI
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hawaiian Electric Company (Hilo, HI) in November 2010.

    Interview

    Initially was invited via email. The interview consisted of an HR rep and the Accounting Manager. The questions seemed cordial and easy at first, then became progressively challenging and borderline intrusive. I believe this was a test to see how one responded under controversy and/or pressure. They were definitely looking for a specific type to fit their mold.

    Reasons for Declining

    It would have required a relocation, and not worth the salary. Old, dated offices and equipment. Felt like I was going back in time about 20 years.
