      Pros

      It's a good company with great benefits. Majority of the employees are good people and the corporate culture is still evolving, however, still a work in progress. Great place to work if you're open to both corporate/Hawaiian culture.

      Cons

      They very seldom promote from within the company it seems especially, if you are born and raised in Hawaii. They have a history of hiring people from outside of the company/industry for the higher paying positions.

      Bad stay away from this second rate B-class airline. Looks are deceiving!

      Pros

      Flight benefits, insurance, location, good training at Corp level

      Cons

      Was a good job until I came to the floor. Discrimination is a problem and people talk crap. I even had someone mess with my safety wire and then come get me. Looks are deceiving; not really the safest airline. They get away with more because the 717’s come back to Honolulu every night. Otherwise there would be huge safety concerns and maintenance issues. Not all procedures are followed the way most it should be like at major airlines. I was told they have high standards but little regional airlines have better standards. I tried to report some issues and was retaliated against.
