I worked at Frontier Kemper Constructors full-time for more than a year
Pros – Pay off weekly, good salary, decent benefits.
Cons – Unwillingness to make changes when needed. Unwilling to recognize someone's dedication to what's best for the company if it's an opposing view.
Advice to Senior Management – Build better employee relationships by being more honest and open to all opinions or suggestions.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Pros – 401K, Healthcare, vacation starts at 10 days every year with an additional day added every year you work there.
Cons – Not a lot of upward growth opportunities, how field engineers, electricians, laborers are treated
Advice to Senior Management – Provide some incentive to those engineers, electricians who have to travel for weeks at a time. Stay current with salary levels.

I have been working at Frontier Kemper Constructors full-time
Pros – Very good experience with a variety of mining and civil projects, lots of knowledgeable people to learn from and make good contacts with.
Pay can be pretty good depending on the project and location.
Cons – Pay can be pretty bad depending on the project and location.
Had better benefits before it was bought out by Tutor Perini - the vacation days were reduced, the 401K match was cut by more than half, and the insurance was previously fully covered.
Little chance for upward growth. Headquarters are ran by inside connections and "who knows who".
HQ and field use different sets of rules - for example a vacation "day" is 8 hours so HQ gets one day off for one day used. Many of the field sites use 12 hour shifts, so to get one actual day off you have to use 1.5 vacation days. HQ salary people end up with 10 days off, field salary people get 7.5 days off. Still trying to figure out how this is legal. And no, there aren't any perks like overtime to make up for the loss.
50 hour weeks are considered minimum at some locations. I've logged several 80 hours weeks and managed to get only one attaboy.
Advice to Senior Management – Treat your employees fairly and keep them informed of what is happening. Written rules go a long ways these days.
– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Pros – Good pay and benefits, some of the management team are excellent people. heavy civil construction is interesting, they have a intense background in Tunnel Boring machine work so if you are interested in getting into this type of work this is the place to be.
Great Christmas party, social gatherings and get togethers.
Cons – Not a huge Canadian influence in management. They posted advertising for several jobs, knowing that they wouldnt hire anyone as they already had USA people in mind for the positions. Out of 16 people in a management role only 3 were Canadian! A lot of the managers were "old school" they talked about supporting safety or being safe but didnt do what they say.
Advice to Senior Management – Hire more Canadians, give positive feedback (not just the negative), utilize the experience of the Canadians on staff when dealing with regulatory agencies.
