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


    Great opportunities to learn different aspects of the business.


    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Alcoa in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed at a career fair and the recruiters were very approachable. Within minutes I was set up for an interview. The interview was short and it was less of a structured interview and more of just a conversation of what my goals were and why I was interested in the company.
