    I worked at Alcoa full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits Many knowledgable and experienced professionals Opportunity to push your career and help the company succeed

    Cons

    Poor business decisions are made to improve month end, quarter end results Capital investment goals of the company are to spend as little as possible, facilities suffer

    Advice to Management

    Stop pretending that DI and "productivity improvements" are real - I'm sure even Klaus knows it is a big made up game

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Alcoa (Rochester, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Was invited into the HR manager's office with the the HR Manager and the Quality Manager. The two of them asked the first all important question, "tell me about yourself". After a brief response they started asking questions about my experience and and then they told me about the job opening. They allowed me to ask a question or two and then the interview was over.
