Heavy duty mechanic (Former Employee) – Kearl lake – 19 June 2013
At Kiewit you work hard 14/7 shift 12 hour days (Paid for 11.5) So in return they cut your days off short, don't get you're proper flights, forget to put you in camp & when you return from days off you get to camp around 4pm & start night shift the same day. Terrible foremen, & project managers (on the maintenance side of things) Then after all that you take a flight off to drive home so you can have a vehicle on your days off, the foremen prints you off directions on the quickest way to drive home, you spend 1000$ on gas & bills to get there, and then he calls you when your home & lays you off saying " you don't deserve a reason why". That is Kiewit Kearl Lake maintenance division, I hope this steers a few future maintenance employees away & saves you some head aches.
Camp/Flights - (if they don't cost to much for them)
Over protective (full PPE while riding in pick ups), & no commitment to you

I really enjoy working for Kiewit. They provide the best training for your employees and career advancement is rapid provided you put in the work. You get to build challenging projects with great co-workers.

You were kept busy though out the day as there is always something to do. I like this because the days go faster and you were always learning new things. Safety is always first. A wide variety of job skills as we were in the business of helping construction people get their job done as safely and efficiently as possible. If you needed help, or were not sure of something, then your co-workers/management would help in anyway they could (all you had to do was ask). If and when you needed anything, (tools, materials, help etc.) they supplied it. Kiewit is all about safety and getting home to your family in the same condition you came to site. :) The hardest part, of any job, is when the project is nearing completion and your new friends/family are going on to other things. The best part of working for Kiewit was the respect they insisted that everyone have for their co-workers/job/camp life/environment/other people at the site/ and the human race in general.
Flights/camps/tools/supplies/even some cloths were covered
The pay may have been a little less than others but it was made up for in other areas
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

Journeyman Electrician (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 29 May 2017
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.

Kiewit has been nothing but good to me over the last 10 years. I have been consistently employed and enjoyed every year. They do an excellent job at work/life balance. They also allow a lot of room for advancement.
