    I worked at Hawaiian Airlines part-time

    Pros

    Good pay and good benefits. Light workload. Helpful coworkers. Easy going passengers. Only 6 flights a day. Some really good chiefs. What really helped me is writing down all the steps to everything we do and organize it by topic(gates,counters, baggage etc). This way you have all the steps to check when you do something complicated or have second doubts.

    Cons

    Management needed more organization. My reviews were mostly opnion based with no substance. Key word was perceptions. I had to request specific situations to see what behavior they were referring too that weren’t technical. Very cliquey environment for the most part.

    I have been working at Hawaiian Airlines full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Great benefits (free travel and cheap healthcare). Good and smart people at all levels. Well respected in the community.

    Cons

    Financial tough times ahead for 2019 and 2020 at least. Less money for training or any form of optional spending. Strong tendency throughout all departments to hire leadership positions from outside rather than from within, resulting in few opportunities after you join. Loss of former CEO Mark Dunkerley was a big detriment. Tech Ops leadership is especially military-centric, creating a less welcoming atmosphere than the...

        For Employee- Standing by should be confirmed instead on a limited or earned basis For Customers- Seniors should not be standing i the same line as others they should have a zip lane so that they are not standing for long periods of time. That might alleviate so many wheel chair persons.
