    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Hawaiian Telcom full-time

    Pros

    If you are complacent and used to living on check to check level of income and working in entry level demeaning type of positions this is a great fit for you.

    Cons

    If you are ambitious about technology, selling and advancing your career and working to your full potential; this place will disappoint and discourage you; depress you. You will be shocked at what it is not. You can move on to somewhere else if you are able to kiss a little butt; keep your head down and agree with everything or be just related to someone and you don't have to know anything about the job. Speaking... your mind and calling things what they are will get you labeled as having a bad attitude. It's not an income that will sustain you in Hawaii and you will need another job in addition to working 40 hrs a week

    Advice to Management

    I don't think there is anything they haven't heard: they are all comfortable and secure in there jobs and skilled at applying all blame of failures to reps and apply incredible pressures and set unrealistic goals...haven't yet realized that people are not motivated by things that seem unattainable and therefore results in low moral but it's that kind of job; it's a call center afterall

    I worked at Hawaiian Telcom for less than a year

    Pros

    Good and reliable team of people to work with.

    Cons

    They used old technology. If you're looking to develop cutting edge tech, look elsewhere.
