Good company to work for.

Fair pay for you work. Open to ideas and change. More like a family than an employer. Great people to work with. Supplied tools, good safety culture. Organized

Depends who you are

Mod yard.... excellent place to work. Site work.... is painful, ran like a prison. Write ups around every corner. More white hats then yellow hats. Management can’t even get on the same page. No order to any operation, Big time favoritism, 13 hr days getting paid for 10. This economy sucks. F U Trudeau.

Very Safety Oriented

They are more concerned with your safety while working than the job getting done fast. Finish Strong was the theme, to make sure you went home safe to your family.

Great history, poor showing at Kearl HTI

Was very excited to go work for Kiewit. I heard excellent feed back throughout the years, so when I got an offer I was thrilled. However after a few shifts on the Kearl HTI site i was very unimpressed. Very poor management. Superintendents and field engineers trying to manage a craft that they have bo experience in. Lack of planning, no communication, no material, not enough tools. Apprentices as foreman. Safety seemed to care

Great place to work with good people and good management.Excellent safety policies that were actually enforced. I was an apprentice when I worked there and I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with Kiewit as a red seal journeyman.

If you want a career in the Trades it is an excelent place to be.

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.

Fun and rewarding company to work for

Treated their employers right and made you feel like part of a team. Very good employee benefits packing and being paid accordingly. Long hours but enough time to get the job done right with the right material.

a day at work

basically do our stretches, safety meeting in the morning and write our jha for the day then receive work from our foreman for the day then we would walk down the job and gather tools and information for the task then complete the task. we would record all material used for the day then give it to our foreman at the end of the day. sometimes i would learn stuff sometimes i would not. hardest part of my work days are probally working after breaks or when i got to walk around look for my foreman because im confused or dont know what to do.
