When your day got started it was very physical,you quickly learn to work as a teamwith a good bunch of workers the hardest part of the job would have to be the conditions that you had to work in to get the job done.The most enjoyable part besides the physical workout is the people you work with and around.

Ballast Control Operator (Current Employee) – Bull Arm, NL – May 11, 2016
The Ballast team work 14 hour days and are situated 50m below sea level where we coordinate and control the stability of the 640,000 tonne floating structure. Frequently butting heads with construction teams where there are compromises to marine and structural integrity issues, a diplomatic and firm stance is required. A substandard ballast system in use means we have to innovate frequently whilst holding back our frustration at the lack of progress to repair and replace items that are supplied by the vendors.
Material Handler (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – April 10, 2016
Working in the material distribution department, gave great exposure to materials used in piping, structural and electrical. Assisting the tool crib gave me greater knowledge in the equipment required for use in this industry.
Organized fast pace environment.
Position is reliant on future projects that may not be rewarded.
Construction/ Project Manager (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – April 7, 2016
Kiewit is a well oiled machine, the people are committed and the process and procedures are second to none. They look after their key people and even when things are slow they look after you. The training programs for staff is exceptional and the advancement opportunities are only restricted to your own desire to advance. The only down side for me with Kiewit is you must be prepared to travel to projects just about anywhere. Some people really enjoy this but not in my forte.
