Human Resource Coordinator (Former Employee) – Kuwait – 30 August 2017
I have worked for KBR for more than 8 years, it is a gas and construction company to support the American army overseas, and it is very diverse and teaches you different perspectives from different people from around the world, it is long hours though but what makes it bearable is the high professionalism of its employees and their kind background that makes you forget the hours worked, loved every day

Structural Ironworker Apprentice (Former Employee) – Fort Hills, AB – 1 July 2017
camp job. 14/7 shifts money was good but no life outside of work. i would hop on another camp job with this company in the future. management at times were just going back and forth and leading us workers in circles.
Health and Safety Coordinator (Former Employee) – Cigar Lake Mine, SK – 3 June 2017
The camp setting was good great food /people and entertainment.Working with the mining as well as the Surface construction was a great experience. great managers and love working and training the Northerners who were like sponges as they were being taught new ways and ideas.
I then proceed to start my own company(JH Safety Services ltd) and work for Director of Safety at the same site Cigar Lake/ Rabbit Lake.I use to travel a few days a week between sites. The Safety Director was Wayne Anderson from the Saskatoon office . He was also a great Mentor / advisor.Working as Safety Manager/ Coordinator and field advisor.The Cigar lake Project was over 2 billion dollars and we achieved the project without any major Safety Injuries,with sometimes 10-12 different contractors. I have always been on the Construction Management Team for the past 6 years.
Technical Professional Leader (Former Employee) – Multiple on site locations – 3 June 2017
The main priority is safety on every job. No craftsman or manger will last very long in this organization if he or she does not put safety first. Every project has rewards but none so greater than no one getting seriously injured. Quality and production are also highly regarded. Doing the job correctly the first time reduces exposure that could be hazardous in certain situations. Every day on a construction site has changing conditions and challenges to be met. My particular job was working closely with the project engineer writing and resolving RFI's per the engineer's recommendation. Close coordination with the area managers and discipline superintendents in regards to these issues was critical in order to meet schedule requirements. At any rate every challenge is great and stressful at times. You got to love it!
Senior quality assurance (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 21 May 2017
Good company, good job, management was old school and didn't understand all of the responsibilities that the quality department had. Therefore denied getting the manpower required and in turn made themselves look bad.
Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – New Liskeard, ON – 29 April 2017
kbr is a good company to work for the wages are amazing and the employees are treated very well. Only down fall of the great money is the traveling and being away from home most of the time, the company does always try accommodate everyone while being away from home.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 29 April 2017
KBR wabi ltd is a good company to work for, they treat the employees good and they also make sure they have the best available lodging for the employees on jobs. Wages are amazing but you do have to work away from home for long periods of time to get this. Only down fall of working for this company is never home.
