Would work for them again. Good Benefits (pension, RRSP matching, dental, medical). Extensive safety program. Good tools and gear. management was cliquey.

Snot nosed children management

They say safety, until they need something done then it’s no safety. The dump truck they had me run had a serious issue with air pressure bleeding off to the point of being immobile. Then these petty little children playing at supervisors don’t want to hear it. Safety is a huge short coming with management. They short hours and pay. Never seen any job run so poorly.

Pros

Full stop when it rains

Cons

Field supervisors are a clique with no clue

Great place to work

I was hired over the phone as a name hire from a buddy who was the GF I came in as foreman. I have worked for a few of the different big companies over the years. Working for Kiewit was BY FAR the best place to work out of the big places. I really enjoyed my time there and can not wait to be cal when things pick up and hopefully won’t have to move on

it was a Great company to work for until the jobs in BC dried out for the Company.

Working at Kiewit was a great learning experience. I enjoyed the variety of work on the Port Mann Bridge. I was part building the bridge, the demolition of the old bridge and the Marine work. I took care of the barges and worked with tug boat operations. I learned to work with explosives, pile driving, iron working, welding, and all the Marine operations. I got along with the Iron Workers and Tug Boat Operators. Hardest part of the job was working at Camp when the Port Mann bridge was done because I had to be away from my family. But I enjoyed learning how to operate loaders. It was a great learning experience.

Pros

learning a variety of new aspects in construction

Cons

loss of job

kiewit I must say is the best place that I have ever worked to date ,lots of help from upper management

Every day started with a safety meeting and twice a month we had a safety review about the previous two weeks . And the mentoritng that went on was just great ,not only foreman down but also from above ,the whole crew was a well oiled machine which worked for the better of everyone it was great .Again the hardest part of the job was getting new people to buy into safety and the best was the friendship and the everyone watced out for everyone attitude
