    I worked at Alcoa


    If you want to work at a place where employees are genuinely cared for and looked after then I would strongly recommend Alcoa. There is a strong visibility of senior management. I was able to meet the plant manager for the site I worked at although I was only an intern. Furthermore, I was able to meet other managers from other sites in other countries.


    Personally, I did not have as much knowledge of the area I was working in before I joined the company. I would have appreciated a little more theoretical training even if only for a few days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend that the leadership of Alcoa keep doing all the good things they are doing and especially to maintain their commitment to environmental responsibility.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Alcoa in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    The initial interview took place on campus and was pretty informal and behavioral. Interviewer asked your typical behavioral questions and questioned several experiences/activities on my resume. Second round interview consisted of 6 short 30 minute interviews with executives in the rotational program. One technical interview that included a basic accounting quiz. Nothing too difficult for the most part.
