Printing Specialist (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – December 8, 2017
This is a good company to work for with great benefits and chances to move up. A competitive salary for this type of industry. Safety is number one throughout the company. Management is very interested in their employee's well being.
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – Springfield, Mo – December 7, 2017
Good place to work if you can work 60+ hours every week. Constant power struggle in management gets old but pretty good people all in all. I would recommend it to anyone who is wanting to make good money and doesn't car how many hours and what shift they work.
SQL Developer (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – December 7, 2017
I was hired as a database developer for the Recycling division. After being there for only 2 month, the manager that hired me was fired after 10 years of service. IT in the Recycling division did not follow normal IT procedures. There were no formal documentation, source code control or requirements. The requirements were given by email and always stress the urgency for it. Once you complete the requirement and contact the business to test then there were no urgency. They will test your program months or weeks later. Half the time they will forget what they ask for. The company follows a Good Ol Boy system where kissing the right person's behind will get you ahead. I would not recommend this company unless you plan to have no life and desire to be cut throat. I was given good review when I started and within month they stated all non factual negative criticism about my work ethics.
GA (Former Employee) – Winfield, KS – November 29, 2017
This job was a fun yet productive work environment. I loved going into work everyday knowing that nothing was going to really go wrong. I went into work everyday with a smile on my face ready to get to work.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – North Chicago, IL – November 27, 2017
good place to work at.i learned about machinery.management was very nice.work culture was good and getting to do something different every time.the hard part of the job was to many hours to work. the most enjoyable part of the job was when the machine did not give you any problems.
Shipping, Hogger/Baler (Former Employee) – Athens, AL – November 14, 2017
When hired I was informed that the job is 8 hours a day Monday through Friday occasionally working a weekend. After having worked for this company, I learned that you have to work until the next shift decides to come relieve you from your post (which is not always 8 hours) and you occasionally received a weekend off. Only certain individuals are held accountable for their actions. Example: Some employees can come to work late every single day and no one says anything to them about it. On the other hand another employee shows up late to work on occasions with proof that they could not avoid doing so and be reprimanded for it.
I would not recommend this work place to anyone. this was the worst job I have ever worked. Management was sorry and fellow employees were not out to help you. The turnover rate unreal due to the way this place is run.
Business Resource Manager/Packaging Engineer (Current Employee) – Camillus, NY – November 10, 2017
WestRock is a fun place to work but it really does matter where. I work in the Camillus, NY location and love it because of all the money that the company has put into this location alone. The only negative is age range in employees. There are not many young employees here. Other plants have a much better age difference but then their plant may not have money put into it to make it run better and smoother. If looking for a position at WestRock, I would highly suggest looking at these two things for the exact location you may work at.
