Learned a lot, was well paid. The safety culture and training at Kiewit is second to none, they provide all training to complete any job safely. They provided interesting opportunities and ranges of jobs.

Large and impressive company, working on equally large and impressive jobs

Not without its flaws, Kiewit is a pleasure to work for. It is an industrial electrical, with a major focus on safety. Those that complained on site were often unsafe and unintelligent ones.

kiewit has the most disturbing management

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

great learning tools

Teach you the things you need to know to get the job done.. Work life balance is lacking. Young engineers are taken advantage of, and if you are not willing to slit your coworkers throat to get ahead...you'll never get ahead.

Nice environment to work and employees are well compensated

I like the attitude of the people and how management treat their employees fairly. The company are equipping employees in the right direction to improve the quality of their work, giving them trainings, seminars and taking special coarses. Overall its a fun workplace.

Pros

a lot of company benifits

Cons

Non

Fairly easy going work environment and good people.

working at kiewit I started as a rigger for a boom truck and various cranes and then moved to a labourer crew working on different odds and ends for the various trades around the site.My co-workers were very easy going and made the days go by faster. The hardest part about the job was the weather.

Pros

one thng i really like about the job was that it changed frequently.

Cons

the weather

Company that Does Not Care About Employee Safety

Multiple accidents occurred while I was employed there. When you try to report an incident the safety team ignores you. If you get injury compensation you will lose your job.In addition, you are told to keep an eye out for environmental impacts but then ignored if you report them, as well.

Pros

good pay

Cons

employee deaths, injuries
