Gerant de Bureau Senior (Former Employee) –  Laval, QC3 June 2018
I worked at Kiewit for over 36 years all across Canada and in New York City. The hardest part of the job was to be away from the family most of the time as most projects were remote job site with a rotation schedule (ex: 3 weeks on site and 1 week off).
Pros
Good salary
Cons
Long hours and working at remote job sites for most of my career

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?

Electrician (Former Employee) –  Sherwood Park, AB7 April 2018
A typical day at Kiewit at the Module Yard in Sherwood Park was an adventure from Day one. As an electrician I was given duties that I was able to accomplish as well as challenges. You usually get split up into groups and you may put heat trace on the module or do grounding chores or put in cable tray as needed. It is an Industrial Environment so you have to be ready for anything. The safety culture is good and so is the management team. The hardest part of the job is your going to get dirty sometimes you have to be a welder's helper and even layout part of the Module so the Welder can
weld in C Channel as needed for structural and even Strut for installation of the cable tray. At the end of the day you feel like you have accomplished something. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know everyone going to the Company get together's and getting a Turkey and a safety bonus at the end of the Year.
Pros
Lots of work when things are booming.
Cons
In any Construction business there are layoff's when the work is done.

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.

Nights and Cold
Ironworker (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB1 June 2018
We were on the night shift for most of the schedule although we did work days a few times. The gang was pretty amiable and someone was always cracking jokes. Kiewit is a large world wide conglomerate and has projects around the world. It was winter in Canada at the time so the nights were especially cold. Met some nice guys while there. I thought the management could have been better.
