So...I've heard about cheaters at every factory on here except Alcan. Is this a company full of saints or what?

I've also heard about layoffs, bad employees and horrible supervisors at every factory....is Alcan (Novelis) really that great or are people just afraid to talk?

I doubt if it is any different than any other factory. If someone is going to cheat they will cheat regardless of their employer.
I haven't heard about any layoffs at this one.

Actually we are very different from other factories. i have ben here for a long time and there have only ben a few cases of cheating husbands or wives. but we have a very small work force. and no, we`ve never had a lay off. It is a very good company.

I thank God every day I didn't get the job there! I went through 3 interviews and again I thank God I didn't it! I'm sure some of the safety issues gets swept under the rug just like everywhere else. But I know there are alot of "know it all" workers and supervisors there just like every where else! Alcan is not different from any other factory!

I don't know anything about Alcan. I just wanted to chime in and say it is VERY refreshing to read that someone is proud of their place of employment.

hell??? about halph of the work force has ben there since the doors opened nearly 20 years ago, and we have the lowest turn over of any other place around, like i said its not perfect, but no other place compares.if it was hell we would be hiring all the time instead of one or two people every year or two. im just a team member that works on the floor, but ive worked at sweat shops like tokico and such, nobody leaves the "can" to go to those places. and someone with sence would know there is reason for that..

I heard that tokico and these other places work you ten to 12 hours a shift seven days a week and want event let you take a bathroom break. These factories really need to unionize if there that bad. If all you do is work sleep and eat what good is life plus the 401k's are going broke no retirement systems.Just hope Social Security is still around. I really feel for this generation of young workers. It want be long that temps will be the only one's holding a job. Alcan sounds like the best place to be right now.

we have a few temps, but not many. mostly they do clean up and stuff we dont have time for. but right now, we dont have any temps in the process. we do have have 12 hour shifts, but we only work 3 or 4 days a week. with a built in 8 days in a row off every month. its like getting 12 weeks of vacation a year plus the 184 hours of vacation we get every year.

alcan aka novelis was a good place to work until the hired a real douche named dave pritchard...he has single handedly destroyed the place and all of the moral....the only people there that get anywhere are the ones willing to suck him off...if they had any sense at all they'd fire his ass and try to salvage what's left of the company...and just to let everyone know we are well on our way to becoming a sweat shop just like tokico and we have dave to thank for that to

Seems to me the solution is simple. Corner this Pritchard guy and show him how good you can play the meat flute. Problem solved.
