    I worked at Alcoa full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great opportunities to learn different aspects of the business.

    Cons

    If you aren't a fresh faced MBA they have no use for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are losing the company knowledge by weeding out the long term employees.

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus recruiting. Was contacted over the phone for an on-campus interview. The interviewer was quite nice and asked very basic behavioral questions. No accounting or finance questions were asked however the interviewer knew I didn't study finance (majored in another quantitative field). If you majored in finance be prepared to be asked some financial questions.
