Very professional work environment, training and team support
Purchasing Lead (Former Employee) –  St. John's, NL13 September 2017
Working at Kiewit was a great experience because of kind of training, and management. Managers and other employees are so cooperative and reach out to help if so required.

Management is always keen to listen to any issues and resolutions, this not only include work related issues but issues at personal matter.

Kiewit provided environment which is non-discriminatory, equal opportunity for growth, confidentiality and ethical behaviours by all employees and managers.

High pressure, disorganized
Warehouse Superintendent (Former Employee) –  Sherwood Park, AB22 August 2017
When I was there, Management was very disorganized & discouraging. No support from Upper Management to Middle Management. Verbally abusive. Tough to be positive in this environment,

You were well taken care of.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK28 June 2017
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.
Pros
Flights/camps/tools/supplies/even some cloths were covered
Cons
The pay may have been a little less than others but it was made up for in other areas

great company
chief mate (Former Employee) –  bull arm nl22 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.
