Career growth

Alcoa’s greatest asset is its people. Whether behind a crane, in the driver’s seat, at a keyboard or on the plant floor, Alcoa cannot be successful without its employees. It is imperative to not only prepare our people for the roles they have now, but also offer training for the roles they want in the future. While programs are available for Alcoans regardless of seniority, we also provide a variety of opportunities for those who have yet to join the workforce by way of apprenticeships and internships.

Volunteering and community

Alcoa is proud to invest in the communities where it operates. We do so (in part) through location donations or grants and projects supported by the Alcoa Foundation. In addition, our Alcoans often give back to the places we call home and we take great pride in how our care for people value comes to life through volunteerism.

From reading programs to habitat rehabilitation, our employees have the full support of Alcoa while they give back to their community. Not only does the community benefit from the help, but our employees also share the experiences are rewarding as they are able to connect with new people, learn new skills, and discover new perspectives.
