    I worked at American Savings Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Paid Time Off, Medical, Dental, Vision, Prescriptions, starting pay $15.21, One Hour Lunch

    Cons

    Long weeks, no set schedule, must request days off 60 days in advance due to scheduling system, favoritism, inconsistency in practices, high turn over rate, management opening late which makes the week less than 40 hours, overtime is avoided as much as possible, slow growth.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency, punctuality, fairness, understanding, positive work environment, recognize employees for their performance, better work life balance, set schedules should be an option.

    I worked at American Savings Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get your vacation upfront and can take off whenever. Co-workers were nice.

    Cons

    Benefits are good, but since you get paid weekly they take a lot more out of your paycheck than the other banks that pay you bi weekly. Bus pass is supposedly subsidized but its really not, they take the money out of your paycheck. While you do get your vacation upfront, its also sick time so if something happens to you say goodbye to your scheduled vacation. Training was non existent, they want you to just read procedures and if you mess up you will get blamed for it. Management takes no responsibility for their actions and the departments do not communicate with each other. Systems never seem to work, very outdated compared to other banks in Hawaii. Also wanted to move us all to Aala Park area to cut costs on the new building. While there is room for growth, corporate is small, only 600 employees so options are limited.

    Advice to Management

    Make an effort to actually structure the bank. Teach managers/supervisors leadership skills. Fix systems.

    Pros

    has good benefits and paid time off.

    Cons

    Corporation in based off of favoritism. Many branches have poor management, along with management not caring.

    Advice to Management

    if you approve requested time off for an employee follow through with it. Help your staff make their sales goals by assisiting customers when needed instead of waiting for someone else to pick up the slack.

    Pros

    Lots of hands on training, Benefits are Great

    Cons

    Branch Managers who’d been there for a life time have “old” management techniques. Branch Managers and Regional Managers don’t abide by the company policy. The salary or hourly pay is low. Tellers should get paid more. Very high turn over. Your work hours could be from 7:45am to 6:30pm. No such thing as two (2) 15 minute breaks and one (1) hour lunch. You work all those hours with just a one (1) hour lunch.

    Advice to Management

    Management should listening to the little people. Just because a Regional Manager, Branch Manager or Assistant Manager has over 20 years of dedication to the company, experience doesn’t make them good leaders. All listed above have Manager/Supervisor/ Boss techniques. Ask yourself, why there is a high turn over? It always starts from the top! The Managers or staff smell like cigarettes. Be a supporter of Nicotine free! Create a healthy work environment.

    I worked at American Savings Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Paid each Friday! Company has good benefits and compensation for employees who have to travel a fair distance to work. Company reimburses you $60 for parking or bus fare, which helps out. PTO is given up front, however you still have to work X amount of hours for it.

    Cons

    Hard to balance out work and personal life. Most branches are small so it's hard to try and take time off. You are paid to the minute, which isn't terrible but I've worked at other places and had a 3 minute window so if I was running late that was nice to have, or if you're leaving just a couple minutes early you would still be paid for the full hour.
