    I have been working at Hawaiian Airlines full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flying benefits/ Medical plan/ Desirable hours/ Great Work environment

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Please evaluate flight benefits as a perk to years of service or employee incentive for attendance, years of service gifting /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.

    I worked at Hawaiian Airlines full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Mostly cool co-workers; Ability to travel IF you can get a day off OR even get on

    Cons

    Executives suck! Managers suck! Locals are ALL labor workers - none of them have any say in the operations. All mainland people coming in and taking jobs from hard working locals.

    Advice to Management

    Quit treating your employees like trash! You've let go MANY great employees all because "someone" didn't like them. Seriously! You've caused chaos and emotional turmoil for hardworking people who dedicated years to this company only to be blindsided with unethical lies about their job performance.

    Pros

    Flight benefits are great, living in Hawaii is wonderful, and many people are very welcoming

    Cons

    Still some wariness of outsiders, and the company is still experiencing growing pains from the smaller local company that came out of bankruptcy. Pay is also lower in comparison to expectation, especially considering the high cost of living.
