    Long, full day of interviews including a lunch interview. Mostly based on interest and fit. No technical questions. I met with everyone in the team for which I was applying.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Alcoa (Knoxville, TN) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online including a resume and a cover letter. I was set up with a 30 minute phone interview. Interview questions were quite difficult. As far as the technologies and tools the group used, it sounded like they were almost exclusively an Excel shop. I should have spent considerably more time learning about commodities pricing and the aluminum industry as a whole.
