Pkskiewitsince 1884 Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Kiewit Corporation, based in Omaha, Nebraska. Privately held, it is one of the largest construction and engineering organizations in North America. Recent projects have included several bridge retrofittings in the San Francisco Bay Area, Interstate H-3 project in Hawaii, rebuilding the spillway at Oroville Dam, and building the world's largest geodesic dome at Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha. Along with significant mining and off-shore operations, the company also contracts small grading (dirt moving) projects for residential or commercial development. The company was founded in 1884 as Kiewit Brothers Masonry Contractors by Peter and Andrew Kiewit, who were of Dutch descent.
A current employee talks about the work environment at Kiewit Corporation: ¨Kiewit is a company that requires a lot of time and effort to get the job done. The job requires long hours and lots of weekend work. Overall, the field work can be very interesting at times. I have worked on high profile projects such as the Arlington Memorial Bridge Rehab job and the WMATA 6 Station Rehab where I have worked with lots of different subcontractors and have seen a lot of different scopes of work be completed in a short period of time. The down sides to Kiewit are, there is very little room to move up in the company unless you know someone or are from Omaha where the company headquarters is located. The amount of work expected from you does not correlate with the compensation given.¨
