Marystown Kiewit

I’ve worked here in the recent years, great people good management but no job security, and a bad joke for a union. Basically they get a project about every 4 years, wish they could hook more work here to keep the locals on the Burin Peninsula employed most off the time, the union that they have there is a disaster they do nothing for you but take your dues, the union president is a charge hand over the labor’s and takes the companies side in a dispute every time, if we could over throw the union and that joke off a president then I think that place would be a much more better place to work.

once in a lifetime experience

was an eye-opener. They had a very safety orientated work site including the craft voice in safety (C.V.I.S) program which was well rounded and useful.

Pros

Cons

Gettting skill tradepersons
