Bank of Hawaii – Why Work For Us?


undefinedBank of Hawaii is the primary subsidiary of Bank of Hawaii Corporation, a regional bank holding company. Bank of Hawaii Corporation through its subsidiaries provides varied financial services to businesses, consumers and governments in Hawaii, American Samoa and the Pacific Islands.

The company is listed on the New York Stock Exchange as “BOH.” In the community, Bank of Hawaii is also affectionately known as “Bankoh.”

undefinedAt Bank of Hawaii, we believe that exceptional people are the foundation of success for our company. The people selected to work at Bank of Hawaii are expected to deliver an exceptional level of customer service, whether in a branch, on the phone, or even as internal service providers, such as a credit analyst or information technologist. Our employees are dedicated to performing well, not because they seek recognition, but because they want to make customers happy, and the company more successful.

Careers at Bank of Hawaii can be rewarding and diverse just like the markets we serve - Hawaii, Guam, Saipan, Palau, and American Samoa. We offer an array of banking products and services starting with the traditional checking and savings accounts, up to corporate banking services, trust and estate planning, as well as investment options. This diversity of services means that it also takes a host of other employees, such as accounting, legal, and marketing professionals, to ensure that the company functions effectively. Because we’re one of the largest employers based in Hawaii, it’s not uncommon for our employees to build two or three different careers, all within Bank of Hawaii. For example, a highly-talented candidate might be selected for a sales position, move to an operations function, and retire as a risk manager. Few companies can offer this kind of career building experience with the stability of working for the same company.

If you think that you’ve got what it takes to make customers happy to bank with Bank of Hawaii, please browse our list of current career opportunities. We look forward to hearing from you and hope that we can help you build a rich, rewarding, and successful career.


Founded in 1897, Bank of Hawaii (BOH) provides a broad range of financial services and products primarily to customers in Hawaii, the West Pacific and American Samoa. BOH offers a full array of banking services, including retail and commercial banking, investment services, wealth management, cash management, credit and debit cards, loans and leasing, estate and financial planning and international banking. Forbes magazine has ranked BOH as one of the top 10 banks in the nation among the 100 largest U.S. financial institutions in each of the past seven years.

With 70 branches and nearly 473 ATMs, BOH’s ATM network is by far the largest and the most convenient in the state, serving more than half of Hawaii’s households.

BOH understands convenience is essential for today’s busy customers. BOH has continued to launch products in 2016 to meet the changing needs of our customers’ preferences, including Samsung Pay and Android Pay. Debit card consumers in Hawaii can add either Samsung Pay or Android Pay to their compatible smartphones to pay for in-store purchases. Additionally, Bank of Hawaii added a new secure feature, called Cardless Cash, to the BOH Mobile Banking app. Bank of Hawaii is the first local bank in the state of Hawaii to offer a service that allows its customers to securely withdraw cash from select Bank of Hawaii ATMs by using their smartphones and the BOH Mobile Banking app. Cardless Cash is the safest way to withdrawal money. It eliminates the need for a plastic card, and it reduces the risk of fraud, such as card skimming and shoulder surfing.

In each of the past six years, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser readers of the “People’s Choice” awards voted Bank of Hawaii “Best Bank” as well as the Small Business Administration’s Lender of the Year award.

Bank of Hawaii has a long tradition of offering employees the opportunities to grow and evolve. If you have dreams of earning your first bachelor’s degree, Bank of Hawaii can help! Our College Assistance Program gives employees access to a college education and tuition reimbursement. For more information and to apply at Bank of Hawaii, please view our video.
