Bank of Hawaii’s branch of tomorrow concept is a modern, forward-thinking banking experience.
An open concept and a well-lit, modern layout make you feel like you’re at your favorite retail store or hotel—not a bank.
This innovative approach to banking has also changed the role of the Teller. Repetitive tasks are funneled to technology solutions—like next generation ATMs and mobile devices—freeing up yesterday’s Teller to be today's Relationship Banker.
"At Bank of Hawaii there isn’t just one ladder to climb! We are an organization wanting to expand the skillsets of our people, which means exposing our team members to other areas of the bank, promoting from within, and nurturing a culture that embraces change and growth." - Joe L.
Interview with Joe L.
What was special about your onboarding experience?
After being hired at Bank of Hawaii, my onboarding experience confirmed that I had made the right decision! As someone without previous banking experience, I had concerns whether I’d be able to perform at the level of my colleagues. But my manager took time on a daily basis to get to know me, my strengths and areas for improvement, and provided constructive and regular feedback. This facilitated a supportive yet challenging work environment, where I could successfully develop into the best banker I could be.
What makes working at Bank of Hawaii special?
There are multiple ways to answer this question:
a. The Bank of Hawaii family truly feels like ‘Ohana. I’ve worked in multiple areas of the bank, from consumer sales and management to commercial underwriting. The common theme across the board is getting to work with talented, team-oriented people who want to contribute, build-up one another and achieve together.
b. I believe it’s a rare and special thing in the corporate world to encounter the President or a Vice Chair in the halls or elevators, and they know your name and genuinely want to know how things are going.
c. Before Bank of Hawaii, I had always worked for small companies and “hit my ceiling” within a few years. At Bank of Hawaii there isn’t just one ladder to climb! We are an organization wanting to expand the skillsets of our people, which means exposing our team members to other areas of the bank, promoting from within, and nurturing a culture that embraces change and growth.
What opportunities have you been able to take advantage of to advance your career?
The opportunities for career advancement at the bank are plentiful. It is made from the guidance of senior and executive leadership available to you on a daily basis. Every difficult situation I’ve overcome, every tough decision I’ve made and every role change I’ve been through have only come after seeking the input and guidance of senior leadership. And without exception, no matter how high the level, every leader I’ve approached for advice has willingly invested their time and resources into mentoring, coaching and encouraging me through the decisions and challenges I’ve faced.
