Huge company with pros and cons of large companies
QC Manager - Kokish River Hydro Project (Former Employee) – Port McNeill, BC – 21 February 2017
Kiewit is a large company. It has enormous resources and opportunities for those that fit into that type of environment. Many of the people I worked with had been with the company for decades and seemed satisfied.
They do numerous types of projects all over North America.
Scaffolding Superintendent (Former Employee) – kearl lake – 21 February 2017
In my five years with Kiewit over 3 projects i only have good things to say about this organization. If you want to move up in the company all you need to do is apply your self and work hard and you will get noticed.
Piping Field Engineer (Former Employee) – Long Harbour, NL – 29 January 2017
Management positions were filled with relatively young people that did not leave much space for other people to move up. Stuck in a entry level position doing mindless tasks all day. Benefits were were good at first with rrsp but got reduced at the later part of the project. Raises we very little even with the best performing people. Company spends on district meetings and training rather than increasing their salaries.
Electrician (Former Employee) – Fort Mackay, AB – 29 January 2017
Treated their employers right and made you feel like part of a team. Very good employee benefits packing and being paid accordingly. Long hours but enough time to get the job done right with the right material.

Good company, always great people on the various jobs I've been a part of. Good wages and competitive benefits. Most recently worked at the k+s potash mine in Regina, SK. Had a great camp and the job was full of new challenges. Great experience.
