Management is a real drag
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Barberton, OHOctober 17, 2018
This company really does not care about the employees and family like they claim. They will do what they have to to get the production numbers met. No one in management or HR will help you, and the only people in your corner are the other workers. Its in unfortunate after 5+ years at a company to have to leave because I cannot do midnights anymore and they are not willing to put me on 1st, but will hire contractors for it instead.
Pros
Easy way to make money
Cons
No life outside of work, extreme hot and cold, management

Job pays great. Decent advancement if they like you
Skilled Tradesman (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHOctober 12, 2018
Arconic doesn’t mind paying you but you have to put in the time for the money. The company and the UAW union there are EXTREMELY racist towards blacks and try hard to cover it up. Terrible place for minorities to work comfortably.
Pros
Good pay and decent benefits
Cons
No pension and major discrimination against African Americans

OPERATIONS SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) –  LaPorte, INOctober 10, 2018
Compensation and people are great. Micromanaging and not holding people accountable does get old though. Hardest part of the job is balancing the amount of responsibility put on supervisors.

Should be a good place to qork
Forge Operator (Former Employee) –  Midway, GASeptember 9, 2018
Management constantly changes at this facility. Just when progress starts to happen management changes and everything starts over again. Maintenance does not accept responsibility or ownership of the problems with the facility or equipment. HR and EH&S are the worst I have seen in 28 years.
Pros
Don't track breaks if you are a favorite
Cons
No leadership and hourly employees integrity is punished

Wax Injector/ Promotion to teamleader (Former Employee) –  Hampton, VAAugust 22, 2018
The department I was in was fast paced . Co-workers for the most part easy to work with. The company changed all the time you had to be ready to learn something different at any moment. The company used to be good to work for 20 years ago but as time went on it got worse and worse.
Pros
A/C Good parking. Break room close by. Pretty good pay and vacation
Cons
Short breaks, old equipment

Long hours but an interesting environment
Forge/Hammer Helper (Current Employee) –  Fontana, CAAugust 20, 2018
Arconic is a place where you can expect to work long hours and get payed for it. There are opportunities here, but you have to work hard and be on management's side. Other than that it is a good environment to learn about the Forge/Metalworking industry.

The people there were great to work with.
Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) –  Washington, MOAugust 14, 2018
Management is awful, there is no room for advancement. They would rather hire outside the company than to promote qualified employees. There are great people working in this company that never get the chance to excel or move forward. There seems to be a constant power struggle between production and quality. Overtime is crazy and mandatory.
