Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
working in the mod yard in Edmonton was great and the guys running it did a great job. Working out of town for them though was a lot different, the organization was terrible and the would layoff people and then tell the they screwed up and hire them back on in the same day

Poorly managed

From the minute you step out of the orientation you can feel the stress. They talk safety but production is always number. Management is not based on skill but who you know. Superintendents for regulated trades aren’t always knowledgeable in that trade and in some cases are engineers of a different discipline. They hire friends in one door and lay off good workers through another, sometimes the same week or day.

Pros

Safety rodeo’s and swag

Cons

Inconsistency and poor management

Good company to work for.

Good company to work for. The whole team was grate. Had a good time there made some friends some fake some good. Learnt a lot of stuff. Got a second career as an instrumentation mechanic even though I was hired as a journeyman electrician Will definitely recommend to anyone thinking of working. Because of family reason I would have applied to work for them again.

Pros

Big jobs

Dishonest recruiting process

working for Kiewit was pretty good

Working for Kiewit was pretty good, it was a camp job witch I like a lot. 90% of the guys that I worked were easy to get along with and helpful when you needed help. Management was the same I would definitely work for them again.
