Kiewit

Field Engineer

July 2017 • Denver, CO

What I liked

- Large corporation w/ countless opportunities - Safety-driven work culture - Focus on employee weeing and training - Competitive pay right out of school

What I wish was different

- Pay raises barely cover inflation - Promotion/change in job role has no impact on pay (no raise w/ promotion) - Company threatens to take away stock stock from employees if they decline an inconvenient/undesirable work assignment

Advice

Great company starting out - the training and experience you receive during your first few years will put you at the forefront of the construction industry and make you a valuable and desirable employee.

Human Resources Intern

May 2018 • Omaha, NE

What I liked

I loved the community first and foremost ! Everyone cares about each other's success and the overall success of the company. I also liked how all of the projects I worked on made a difference for the company, they weren't just menial tasks.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have scheduled myself a bit more time to visit home, but that was my own doing.

Advice

Just always say yes to the opportunities they provide. I had the chance to go on 3 business trips to states I had never been to and I met so many amazing people and it all came about because I decided to take a risk as a freshman, move away from home and enter the adult working life!

Project engineer

June - September 2018 • Redmond, WA

What I liked

They are a big company that owns and operates most of the work on the jobsite. Being in charge of self performed work and getting to determine the means and methods myself was an awesome experience that helped me as a builder.

What I wish was different

I wish i had more training and guidance as i did not have a great mentor so i was on my own to figure things out and learn. Not looking for someone to hold my hand but an experienced mentor would have increased my learning and performance tremendously

Advice

Go after what you want to do. Be persistent. And keep asking if you are not getting what you need

Assistant Field Engineer

May - August 2018 • Jessup, PA

What I liked

The amount of responsibility that I was given throughout my internship. I was not treated like an intern, through out my experience. One of the goals that I made for myself, was to be able to replace my mentor by the time the summer ended. With less than a month remaining in my internship, my mentor was sent to another job site, and I was able to prove that I fulfilled my goal by the end of the summer..

What I wish was different

Advice

Don't be shy when starting the internship, because the sooner you get to know more people, you are able to learn so much more, and get a lot more involved.
