    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 in-person. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Alcoa in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    The process began with a phone interview where at the end of the call I was invited out to Whitehall, Mi for a day of interviews about a month after the phone conversation. The day of the interviews I was shown many of the plants that I would potentially be working in and met with about six different people who all reviewed my resume and asked relevant questions. They were also willing to answer any and all questions I had for them about their jobs and the company.
