chief mate (Former Employee) – bull arm nl – 22 June 2017
this was the first time I worked for Kiewit. I found this company to be very safety oriented and provided all employees with all the tools necessary to complete their duties in a safe and timely manner. I found all supervisors to be competent and were very good at treating the workers with respect and guided them whenever needed.
Great place to get a good overall exposure to corporate business

working in the mod yard in Edmonton was great and the guys running it did a great job. Working out of town for them though was a lot different, the organization was terrible and the would layoff people and then tell the they screwed up and hire them back on in the same day
No work life balance. If you are driven and don't care about your home life then this company is for you. Otherwise, it's a good startup company to get your foot in the door for many other great opportunities out there.
