    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Alcoa (Barberton, OH).

    Interview

    Interview and hiring process is completely unrelated to work performed. They run you through a slew of mind-numbing tests so that you are completely disabled to ask relevant questions. Very one sided if you are not expecting this.

    Interview Questions
