Interns of Kiewit

September 24, 2019 | Kieways 2019 Q3

Each summer, Kiewit hires interns for positions in offices and on projects across North America. They take on a variety of tasks and responsibilities and are important contributors to Kiewit’s business. This year, nearly 1,000 interns joined the company. Here’s what some of them had to say about their experience.

“Working for a company of this size has allowed me to work outside my comfort zone, face new challenges and learn something new every day. As a field engineer, I am part of the grading and soil stabilization team. I have been blessed to have a great team that takes the time and effort to set me up for success and explain the work to me. I have been able to apply what I learned in the classroom here in the field, but I have learned so much more working on this job by interacting with all the different people with different backgrounds. Truly this has been the best experience of my life.”

“I have been so thankful for the company’s trust in my abilities and the overwhelming desire people have had to see me succeed. I am so impressed with not only the technical skills I have been able to apply this summer, but more so with the people I work with. Everything they say about the Kiewit culture is true. I am so grateful for all the people I met and am looking forward to building these great relationships in the future.”

“Working for Kiewit, I have had the opportunity to work on projects from all over the country, from Washington, to Colorado, to New Jersey. My day-to-day responsibilities include structural design and design review of construction systems, such as falsework and formwork, to aid project safety and efficiency. I had the opportunity to travel to Seattle with my fellow interns and tour some of the project sites. It was amazing to see the wide variety of projects that Kiewit works on and to interact with Kiewit employees in various disciplines.”

“I am proud to be a Kiewit intern, working on a project that is going to assist the United States Marine Corps in its training. We are constructing an LHD (landing helicopter dock) Pad and some MV-22 (Osprey) Landing Pads. Coming from a family of veterans and participating in the ROTC, it makes me proud when I can assist our military branches and give back to those who are fighting for our freedom. Since we are working on an airfield, I was able to get trained on how to operate a radio and understand the military lingo to communicate with the airfield control tower.”
