Pros

You will be exposed to various aspects of the business in a short period of time. They will take good care of you if you learn fast and deliver and they will do their best to keep you. Fair compensation plan with some unusual benefits like free breakfast and lunch. In general, good caliber people and pleasant work environment.

Cons

They will not hold your hand forever. You will have to understand and adapt to their ways pretty fast. Also be ready to put extra hours but at least you will compensated for those (unlike many other firms).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Doing a good job. More job site presence will help.

    Pros

    Its a company that carries features of both corporate and small business mentality. In terms of learning about business from different aspects such as cost, field, management etc. they are still acting with small business mentality (in a good way). They move their employees around often to see what their abilities are and find a fit for them. I think this gives employees a wide open learning opportunity which is very good. When it comes to safety and company procedures they are going with the corporate mentality where you have to fill out a form for almost everything you do or plan on doing. Benefits are solid (health, dental, vision, 401k with company match). Also they are very fair and may be beyond fair with compensating your expenses such as food, gas, tolls. On top of all benefits, if you work over 50 hrs a week, they pay you OT (single time based on your wage) on top of your salary. Oh breakfast and lunch is free and very satisfying!

    Cons

    Long hours and tough outdoor conditions but this is an industry specific problem. They can be also tough when insubordination occurs. Hierarchy is strict.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall very fair and innovative people.

    Pros

    It is one of the construction companies that really takes care of their employees. It is like a big family. Their benefits package is great. If you are looking for a long term employment, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    You may have to work long hours, which is very common for construction industry! One good thing about Kiska is that if you work over the weekends, they will reimburse you for those extra days in the form of days added to your vacation days for that year. If you end up not using all your vacation days, they will reimburse you for the left over vacation days at the end of the year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work...
