Heavy duty mechanic (Former Employee) – Kearl lake – 19 June 2013
At Kiewit you work hard 14/7 shift 12 hour days (Paid for 11.5) So in return they cut your days off short, don't get you're proper flights, forget to put you in camp & when you return from days off you get to camp around 4pm & start night shift the same day. Terrible foremen, & project managers (on the maintenance side of things) Then after all that you take a flight off to drive home so you can have a vehicle on your days off, the foremen prints you off directions on the quickest way to drive home, you spend 1000$ on gas & bills to get there, and then he calls you when your home & lays you off saying " you don't deserve a reason why". That is Kiewit Kearl Lake maintenance division, I hope this steers a few future maintenance employees away & saves you some head aches.
Camp/Flights - (if they don't cost to much for them)
Over protective (full PPE while riding in pick ups), & no commitment to you
Field Engineer/ Estimator (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 17 April 2018
Expected to always put work first and involves working long hours for low compensation when out on projects away from home. When working locally in the office the pay is fair and hours are acceptable. Good RRSP matching and benefits.
Senior Structural Engineer (contract) (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 10 April 2018
I was working as contractor. Lots of overtime. The leads know there stuff. I recommend this place. I would definitely work there again. Work with some Norwegian for the 1st time and they are very competent. Good sense of humor.
