    I worked at RTI International Metals full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the guys on the shop floor are hard working, knowledgeable, and friendly. Some of them have weathered the endless turnover and managed to hold things together and keep the place running as a result of dedication and improvisation.

    The shop floor is loud and hot (open to the Texas heat) and most of the equipment generates substantial amounts of their own heat. It takes a special type of resilience to work there - especially in the summer.

    Cons

    High turnover and regime change. The facility that I worked at had roughly ten general managers in as many years. Each new manager would seek to make their staff changes. At times, there were not sufficient technical and maintenance staff to keep things running properly. This all resulted in systemic quality and production issues.

    Advice to Management

    Issue personality tests to prospective managers prior to employment so as to screen out overly contentious individuals.

    Pros

    Their are many opportunities for process, methods, systems and equipment improvement and the benefits of your improvement activities can be significant.

    Cons

    The processes used to document, produce and inspect products are inadequate for the served industries. This creates great reliance on the skills and experience of the employees thus pressures can be very high.

    Advice to Management

    With the acquisition of RTI by Alcoa Aluminum the best hope for improvement is to integrate the systems, processes and expertise of Alcoa to improve the tradition RTI methods.
