Ironworker/Welder (Former Employee) – BC – 16 September 2014
Worked for them this year on a project in British Columbia, I got hurt on the job. Everything was fine, management acted like they were behind me until I filed for compensation through WCB, I later found out they disputed my injury. They went as far as contacting WCB to tell them that they believed I was hurt that morning and that I wasn't feeling well(which was entirely made up)
Would NEVER work for Kiewitt or any CLAC affiliation ever again.
concrete finisher (Current Employee) – mildred lk ab. – 24 April 2014
We are treated like we're just a number. The management is the big problem with this place. Management has a hard time not letting the power they have go to thier heads. If youre hard up for a job than this is the place to go for a filler job. This place is no good for your mental health. Everything you ever learned any where else does not apply here. This is a good place to work if you know nothing about the industry and are just starting out in your career.
decent pay, when they didnt mess it up
having to do things the hard way, not doing things the right way the first time. they like to play, games
Fabrication Lead Planner (Former Employee) – Edmonton – 14 May 2012
Very busy environment but fun at the same time. Without team work success is slower. Lack of communications with upper management Co-workers are excellent! We work hard and still manage to de-stress ourselves. Hardest part of the job is not being recognized for the hard work the team has put in. And only one person gets the credits. Having a good team and seeing that we accomplish our targets is very rewarding.
Employee (Former Employee) – Kearl Lake – 5 February 2015
Good company overall, but some of the management team don't really have a clue. When a construction manager puts on a new hire (Green) hard hat, and partakes in spying on craft workers, you know the system is broken. One bad CM, don't mean there all bad. Just makes for an environment where the employees are afraid for there job. very much a micro managed company, but if you can get passed this fact. Then you will find crews are usually great, compensation and benefit package is very fair.
Nice environment to work and employees are well compensated
Procurement Lead (Former Employee) – Vancouver – 1 September 2015
I like the attitude of the people and how management treat their employees fairly. The company are equipping employees in the right direction to improve the quality of their work, giving them trainings, seminars and taking special coarses. Overall its a fun workplace.
Carpenter Foreman (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 17 June 2014
Typical day at work starts off with writing a Pre Task Instruction (PTI) for the crew. Go over what we are going to do for the day. I then get the guys/girls set up to where they are going to work, then carry out the days tasks.
The Management has been nothing but great to me and the rest of the crew, they are willing to train and answer any questions as required.
The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing a job completed with nobody getting hurt, and making budget
Structural Welder (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 11 September 2013
Safety is a high priority, the crews are small, often working with same people each day in a well-maintained and respectful environment with understanding management (mostly), a great learning opportunity from co-workers and company supplied training. The camp is clean, well-maintained and the food is great, single bedrooms with shared bathrooms and internet available, gym and entertainment rooms also present.
Competitive wages, high quality camp, great working enviroment
Enterprise Content Management (ECM) Coordinator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 1 February 2016
A typical day is busy, but you learn a lot. It was never-ending learning and change, but if you are the type of person who likes that, it was fun! The friendly and amazing coworkers I was lucky enough to work with definitely kept me at Kiewit for 5 years.
Junior Civil Engineer (Former Employee) – Kapuskasing, ON – 5 April 2014
Safety is a never ending topic at Kiewit. They care about their people and invest in you. About 66% of your life is lived surrounded by people from your company, as you live at a camp for some remote work. Everyone is driven to excel in their job, enforcing a positive working environment. Management is more secluded from their people, as the opportunities in Kiewit tend to be larger scale projects.
it was a Great company to work for until the jobs in BC dried out for the Company.
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.
