Two brot15-April-Kiewit-01hers partnered to form Kiewit in 1884 and the company has since grown to become a Fortune 500 company with over $11 billion in annual revenues and notable projects nationwide. Locally, Kiewit has three Hawaii offices to serve the state’s development needs, and it functions as one of the few firms large enough to take on mega projects but agile enough to work on smaller projects too.

A close-knit team of engineers, managers, and administrative professionals work together to handle projects like the Lihue Mill Bridge project, ‘Ilima at Leihano, and Ho‘okeli Elementary. Individual leadership combined with dynamic teamwork are key in making large-scale projects come together smoothly.

“We view our team as an extended ohana and are always looking for ways to support and help each member of our Kiewit family to succeed,” said Corey Yamashita, Hawaii Area Manager. ”We offer our employees many tools to help them develop and enhance their skills through trainings, mentoring sessions, and team building events.”

In addition to high-caliber training opportunities, employees enjoy generous com-pensation packages, and excellent promotion potential. The leadership team spends a good deal of time investing in each employee to make sure they’re de-veloping personally and professionally and that they feel fulfilled in their work.

“Our people are our cornerstone to success. Without the right people with the right work ethic Kiewit would not be where it is today,” said Sharon Thom, Senior Vice President and Hawaii Area Manager. “We are always looking for the brightest and best minds in the industry with the motivation and commitment to join our Kiewit ohana.”
