Expérience enrichissante

J'ai adoré travailler à Kiewit et j'y travaillerais encore si la pandémie n'aurais pas frappé aussi fort en 2020. L'équipe est génial et très drôle, belles activités d'entreprise en tout genre. à par le système informatique utilisé c'est vraiment une belle place à travailler. J'ai adoré mon expérience. Il y a aucune journée typique !

Pros

Belle ambiance, travaille interessant, variété, opportunité.

Cons

diner trop long (1h pour moi c'est trop), intranet est trop pêle mêle

Good management and good projects

Its as simple as that, they build strong teams. The collaborations and the work is rewarding. They are rigid arounds ome things but its because they hire a lot of new grads and the culture is structured to help them suceed. Promotions are possible and are genuinely merit based.

Pros

Good wages

Cons

Rigid structures

Productive and fun place to work.

I enjoyed the work and the people I worked with. Management was well trained to help and keep you safe. I would definitely recommend Kiewit for a career choice if your safety minded and family oriented.

Good experience, hard work was expected of you, well compensated, very generous company.

Split shifts were tough, 3 am start, 8 pm finish, sometimes asked, but never expected, to work all day at other tasks. My only complaint is the lack of sleep and family life. I enjoyed the work and the camaraderie.

Pros

Prizes, overtime

Cons

Split shifts

No set schedule never know what time your done

Snot nosed children management

They say safety, until they need something done then it’s no safety. The dump truck they had me run had a serious issue with air pressure bleeding off to the point of being immobile. Then these petty little children playing at supervisors don’t want to hear it. Safety is a huge short coming with management. They short hours and pay. Never seen any job run so poorly.

Pros

Full stop when it rains

Cons

Field supervisors are a clique with no clue

BEST Company ever and would love to work there again...

The absolute BEST company to work for and the most amazing coworkers. Would LOVE the opportunity to work for Kiewit again. Management was great as well.... ....Worked as Janitorial on the MLMR site and absolutely loved it......

Great living in camp, both myself and my husband worked there, everything being free, Meals were delicious every day, just a great overall experience with flights right to Newfoundland was a bonus

Cons

Can't say I had any cons. Was the best experience ever.

Pros

Sometimes

Cons

Inconsistent company policies.

Terrible management. Inconsistent in discipline. Management is production over safety. Not a safe contractor to work for. Payroll consistently wrong and nobody ever corrected it until the last paycheck. Green engineers in positions of management and superintendents that are completely disingaged.

It was a great learning experience

Great crew I worked with, the painting superintendent was fantastic!!! Mostly an experienced team of painters, they were great at helping the inexperienced people

Poorly managed

From the minute you step out of the orientation you can feel the stress. They talk safety but production is always number. Management is not based on skill but who you know. Superintendents for regulated trades aren’t always knowledgeable in that trade and in some cases are engineers of a different discipline. They hire friends in one door and lay off good workers through another, sometimes the same week or day.

Pros

Safety rodeo’s and swag

Cons

Inconsistency and poor management

Turn around and dont get in because of salary given

Kiewit cares more about management and looking good to the client than the workers.Management treats the workers like dirt , only a select few care. The people that Kiewit puts in supervisory positions is a joke. They have upervisors and foremans with zero experience and who threatened all of our jobs to our face and when anybody dared speak up or say anything they would fired you, like they did with me because of my honest oponion of useless paperwork that nobody reads.When anything goes wrong top management will throw any worker or foreman directly under the bus to cover their own incompetent actions. Kiewit is one of the most toxic companies to work for with a terrible culture and low morale . They cancelled the pension contributions and gave lame excuse.

Pros

pay rates

Cons

all the company

The work place encouraging to acquire more skills and knowledge.

Over all a great place to work with safety culture. Supervisors are helpful with long years experience and trouble shooting. The safety lessons one can imbibe will be a great asset in career.
