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
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.
Great people, good wages, oppurtunity for advancement.

GENERAL SUPERINTENDENT (Current Employee) – Alberta – 8 December 2016
Over my years with Kiewit I have had the opportunity to work with some great people. I have learnt allot about the business and how to professionally conduct myself around the client and coworkers. The Kiewit management group is constantly pushing you to strive to be the best at everything you do and hold you accountable. Some days you ask yourself WHY do I do this to myself and others you are loving it.
