Construction/ Project Manager (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 7 April 2016
Kiewit is a well oiled machine, the people are committed and the process and procedures are second to none. They look after their key people and even when things are slow they look after you. The training programs for staff is exceptional and the advancement opportunities are only restricted to your own desire to advance. The only down side for me with Kiewit is you must be prepared to travel to projects just about anywhere. Some people really enjoy this but not in my forte.

Working in the material distribution department, gave great exposure to materials used in piping, structural and electrical. Assisting the tool crib gave me greater knowledge in the equipment required for use in this industry.
Organized fast pace environment.

Key Foreman (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 15 February 2016
Working at Kiewit was a great learning experience. I enjoyed the variety of work on the Port Mann Bridge. I was part building the bridge, the demolition of the old bridge and the Marine work. I took care of the barges and worked with tug boat operations. I learned to work with explosives, pile driving, iron working, welding, and all the Marine operations. I got along with the Iron Workers and Tug Boat Operators. Hardest part of the job was working at Camp when the Port Mann bridge was done because I had to be away from my family. But I enjoyed learning how to operate loaders. It was a great learning experience.
Journeyman Red Seal Crane Operator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 28 January 2016
Fun workplace with good camp facilities. Been with the company from 2009 to 2015. Met lot of good people who I worked with. The fun part was when we used to watch movies is the lounge area. Had a lot of travelling to do every fortnight.
Used to get the job done and make sure the work place is safe at all times. Everyday do an inspection of the Crane before going to the job site, and making notes as required on the site.
