I worked at Hawaiian Electric Company full-time (More than 3 years)
Salary. Benefits. Job security, many stay at HECO for their career.
Older company. Slow to change. Bureaucratic. Divisions do not necessarily collaborate well as they are interested in protecting their area of responsibilities.
I was unable to find ways to progress my career and did not have the best leadership. (This probably varies depending on area of company.)
Advice to Management
Develop/promote/hire next generation of employees; especially those that show potential.
Years of experience does not necessarily make people the best fit nor qualified to become leaders/managers.
I applied online. I interviewed at Hawaiian Electric Company in January 2017.
Apply online, and if they're interested they will call you and setup a brief phone interview with multiple people. Phone interview was fairly casual. I ultimately declined because the pay is too low, although this isn't the official reason that I gave.They also offered a relocation package which isn't really enough to make the move. I would have accepted if Hawaii Electric offered to pay for a full relocation, and paid above the market rates to reflect cost of living in Hawaii.
