Process Engineer Intern (Former Employee) – Silsbee, TX – January 14, 2018
Westrock Extruder department was a very interesting time for me as as intern. I was able to soak in all I could and learn from the best. The management worked closely with the employees and they cared so much about them. Safety is the number 1 rule and the company is very proactive regarding that. It felt like home when I worked there and miss the team I worked with.
Enjoyed working in maintenance, knowing that you can have a positive output on the company success. Great group of people who worked there. Preformed mantence on high speed papermachines. Having to apply troubleshooting skills to solve complex problems with complex machines
Converting Area Utility (Former Employee) – Lancaster, OH – January 8, 2018
High worker expectations for unreliable equipment operations. High paced manual labor with very little training/assistance on a regular basis. Employee general attitude is "keep up or get out." Paper cuts daily. Ink....ink everywhere. Pay can be worth it depending on the crew you work with and union benefits were nice. Oh, forced overtime was abundant.
Machine Operator/Floater (Former Employee) – Germantown, WI – January 6, 2018
Fast paced, but not very well supervised. People aren't oriented to their jobs very well before they are required to perform their job duties. Supplies for machines are scattered about and difficult to find.
Hourly Associate (Current Employee) – Low Moor, VA – January 6, 2018
I like a lot of the hourly employees I work with.. We work together for the most part. Now as for the salary members..
Too many chiefs and not enough indians. A lot of the salary members are clueless and cause added stress.
It's good pay but not worth the physical and mental stress on your body.
ALSO a very illegal company as far as how they treat their employees. I've literally been told I couldn't use the restroom because a machine was down.. Not to mention a lot of other actions I've witnessed with other employees.
Just my 2 cents..
Management, Physical Demanding, Relationship at home, No business ethics
Westrock does not perform and practices bait and switch
Sr Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Milpitas, CA – January 2, 2018
Despite excellent sales with Westrock, I found they could not perform. Packaging quality was inconsistent, as were deliveries and fulfillment of the order. Commission structure is bait and switch. Management does not support employees.
Senior Accountant (Current Employee) – Norcross, GA – December 26, 2017
WestRock is a great place to work for stability but not for advancement. They have a very old fashion promotion policy and its very difficult to get a position cross functionally. Nice people. Management is okay depending on your manager. My department manager did not approve the company wide work from home policy until after several weeks of negative feedback from the team.
TRAINING AUDITOR (Current Employee) – Marion, NC – December 22, 2017
Come in check audit trackers for employees audit records. Audit those needing more audits. Check training module for up to date training. Get all employees caught up on training. Create things to improve processes and work enviroments for employees. Hardest part of the job is wanting so much more for the position without any help from management. Seeing positive changes, and feed back about the new training program.
