    New payroll system based on being logged into an app is annoying, but I am taking paper checks which I feel is better.

    I worked at University of Hawaii at Manoa part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    People are nice, weather is perfect, and you never get bored in town as there is always plenty of fun to do if you're either an indoor or outdoor person. Living in Hawaii gives you a good chance to meet many internationals and make a lot of long lasting friendships as less than half of Hawaii residents are US white persons.

    Cons

    Well, after a while you get lazy because everything is perfect and nothing changes, even weather, as it was going to be. So, I can say Hawaii is a not a good place for long time living of young people graduated from college and want to work hard. There is not many industrial companies and most of openings are withing government, army and tourism.

    Advice to Management

    Please take more care of renovation and maintenance. It's so true that construction costs are pretty high in Aloha State but everywhere not built recently is very old, from maybe 50's or 60's.
