Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I started seven months ago, it has been different kind of place to work. Never worked for a company that has safety first and go home safe. It's been difficult at time and fun place to work.

BEST Company ever and would love to work there again...

The absolute BEST company to work for and the most amazing coworkers. Would LOVE the opportunity to work for Kiewit again. Management was great as well.... ....Worked as Janitorial on the MLMR site and absolutely loved it......

Pros

Great living in camp, both myself and my husband worked there, everything being free, Meals were delicious every day, just a great overall experience with flights right to Newfoundland was a bonus

Cons

Can't say I had any cons. Was the best experience ever.

Again no complaints

I have no complaints about this company either. I loved all the jobs I had here in Newfoundland, I wish I had more opportunities to work in my province.

Loved working with the workers at Kiewit

Really enjoyed working with Kiewit. However I was there only on permit and couldn't get into the labourers union. I tried many times but I guess there was already so many members they couldn't add anymore.

Pros

excellent people to work with

Cons

no advancement & couldn't get into labourers union

Great bunch of guys to work with

There was always fun to be had at work with the crew I was on. Even after I was laid off there was continued contact with the guys on the crew. I really miss working with them. Hope one day we are all back on the same crew on another project

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
