I worked at First Hawaiian Bank full-time (More than a year)
Employees are awesome, they treat you like family. By far, one of the best places I've worked so far.
Wish I was able to stay longer.
Advice to Management
No advice because management is already great.
I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at First Hawaiian Bank (Honolulu, HI) in July 2017.
Awful. I wonder how they are in business. That level of disorganized, void of any courtesy "handling" of a lower-management job application is ridiculing their the employees' skills and ethics.
Applied for the position on July 7;
Was invited for an interview on July 18;
Got an invite for a second interview on July 31 the next day;
Was called back on Aug. 4 and "tasked" with a weekend-homework that "illustrates my ability to organize";
Had to follow-up twice because I never even received a confirmation of receipt;
Was invited on Aug. 10 for a third interview on Aug. 15;
Was told on Aug. 23 that I would get a decision by Sep. 1;
Did not get a decision on Sep. 1 of course... radio silence for 1.5 months;
Was invited on Nov. 6 for a fourth interview on Nov. 14.
Got a call today, Dec. 1, that they selected an "internal candidate".
What-A-Surprise. A job in Hawaii is given to an internal candidate. Who would have thought.
Took them five (5!!!) months, four rounds of interviews, for which I had to take off work, and a homework to find an internal candidate. I wonder if that internal candidate had to do all of that.
The two best parts are that today was the first time I spoke to a person from HR. All the other appointments, tasks, etc. were facilitated by the department(s). But for a negative response, they send the clerk. Embarrassing.
Even graver, they have been using my application data to advertise bank products to me which I am receiving at least twice a month now.
BoH will take their place so fast they cannot even hire a new CEO.
