    I have been working at Alcoa as an intern (less than a year)


    Good experience, good chance to learn about finance in a big business


    Boss wasn't around, didn't give any work to interns. We were left on our own a lot

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of interns

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Alcoa.

    Interview Details

    The interview was held on-site at one of their facilities. Initially, they brought the applicants into a room with engineering leaders and HR representatives and had us rotate between the group, talking to each rep along the way. Afterwards, I was interviewed by an engineering leader who asked mostly behavior style interviews. The interview questions themselves were pretty difficult as some asked about very specific situations.
