what a joke
Apprentice Carpenter (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB12 March 2019
the only way to get moved in this company is if you are a drinking buddy with the supervisor and just do what they say no matter if they are right or wrong......... will just leave it at that.

High energy, production based environment.
Engineering Intern (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC11 March 2019
Sink or swim environment. Those who are cut out for the industry are rewarded well and those who are not, realize it quickly. In such a large organization people can fall through the cracks so it is up to you to make yourself useful.
Pros
Professional development
Cons
Unorganized

Choose another place if you have a choice
Construction Worker (Former Employee) –  Alberta10 January 2019
Management will throw you under the bus. If you bring up a legit safety concern, it wont be addressed properly then you will be targeted for other nonesene. I was in a sketchy situation where boom lift had to be in a certain spot for my task and there was a little hill that the lift had to drive over. Cuz it was snowy and icy the lift would would slide making the basket swing/jerk 10 feet towards a pipe resting on wood blocks. They will let u work days on end in a situation like that. But pick on a guy for walking 10 feet without traction aids
Pros
They pay high
Cons
Safety? What safety?

kiewit has the most disturbing management
G3 North Vancouver, welder (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC7 January 2019
they want you to work weekends but they keep changing your hours and your pay rate every week and they are completely incapable of providing pay stubs or tools to there workers. they cant get enough iron workers to work for them so they put there carpenters and laborers through a 2 day iron worker training program. its only a mater of time before some poor person slips through the cracks of there safety system and gets hurt or dies

Worst Management Team
Engineer II (Former Employee) –  Oakville, ON11 December 2018
The shareholders doesn’t mean good project managers. She/he has no idea how to lead the group members and how to shape the team. Senior manager just doesn’t care and do what project managers suggests.
