I would work for them again, I have gained more knowledge overall, and management is available when needed. They give credit where n when its due. Safety and workplace culture was most enjoyable for me as I am always wanting to learn more daily.

Very much satisfied

Joined as pipe fitter and ended up in QC at a very quick time and served them for 1.5 years. Was very comfortable as it was my first job as QC and my superiors and colleagues were very co-operative

Moto of company: Project Managers are the King

Low cost producers… company by the shareholders… for the shareholders.. and to the shareholders… easily can take up-to 10 years to even get to first level of shareholders… good old days are over i guess for them…

Overall good work environment.

People look out for one another and it's good to see. I hope to advance sooner than later and this company will give you that chance. There is work available I'm western and eastern Canada and we need competent safe operators.

decently productive

Hydrovac division being run by inexperienced leaders. good pay. toxic environment, very secretive and shady business and employment practices. No job security. Good for those who can assimilate to old school work practices, red neck conspiracy theorists fit right in. Very money centric, not at all employee centric.

Lots of work, not enough people retention

Company has lots of work if you are happy to travel. Has a hard time retaining good talent due to the nature of the work. This increases the workload and expectations of the employees that stay, but without the promotion and salary that should go with it.

Good people but unapologetic management

Excellent money and interesting projects. Can definitely see the divide and the culture between staff and craft. Flexible on time off and shifts as long as it doesn't interfere with the production

Grande possibilite de developpement, mais la demande en heure est énorme

Beaucoup de bonne expérience et de possibilité de développement de carrière. Par contre, la balance vie personelle et professionnel est très dificil.

Pros

Bon system de REER

Cons

Beaucoup d'heure

Productive and Fun

Excellent reputation, safety culture, and opportunities to train/develop. The projects are typically complex and industry leading. Lots of return hires and I believe the best tier 1 contractor to work with. Lots of really great people in management and in the field

Pros

Training and Development

Cons

Construction Industry

Don’t.

You’re just a number. Zero consideration of work life balance. Get sent anywhere in North America at the drop of the hat. Never worked anywhere with lower morale. Pay is alright though.

Relaxing and a joy to work for

It was the best job I ever had ,I was a heavy equipment operator for kiewit, and still am. But Kiewit is a very good company to work for .I was employed with this company for 19 mths. The job was done , would love to get the opportunity to work for them again some day.

If you’re an operator, AVOID!

Completely disorganized, chaos even. Management leans toward favoritism heavily and if you have your own mind you won’t make it. Operators are used as laborers, and expected to do so daily meanwhile getting minimum seat time and total disrespect for number of years in the industry. Zero interpersonal skills from management side leads to disorganization while forming work crews. Just avoid if you value your mental health

Experience with Kiewit

My career with kiewit was an absolutely amazing experience. I started off operating equipment for a number of years and slowly worked my way up to a foreman/ General foreman. Excellent management that helped me along the way and always had my back. I would still be working with Kiewit but family comes first and after 15+ years working along side and gaining excellent experience with some of the best it was time to watch my kids grow up. I Strongly recommend Kiewit to anyone who wants a career and to be treated more than just a number.
