They will drop you like a bad habit
Heavy duty mechanic (Former Employee) –  Kearl lake19 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.
Pros
Camp/Flights - (if they don't cost to much for them)
Cons
Over protective (full PPE while riding in pick ups), & no commitment to you

Was a great place until upper managment change
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON27 November 2017
Once there was a management change in 2016 the office culture and moral decreased significantly. I learned a lot from the company, but that is due to me being great at self-learning and not from training from others.
Pros
Free Lunches
Cons
Long Hours

Difficult workplace environment.
Project Procurement Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB19 November 2017
The expectation is to go above and beyond but there is little appreciation when you do. Poor systems to manage your work. Management would rather lie to you than tell you the truth about the companies future work potential. They are very reluctant to give you the bad news.
Pros
Good work experience to be gained
Cons
Where do I start.
