Good starter company, with room to grow.
Process Operator (Current Employee) –  Evadale, TXFebruary 19, 2019
Westrock is a good company with decent benefits. Being close to the major refineries they are a excellent place to start training and gaining experience in process operations. They are also a great company to work for, for the long term to retirement. Unfortunately being a older plant there is a lot of issues with equipment not being kept up to standards due to lack of maintenance personal or budgeting. It truly gives a green operator ways to learn more about the process they work with daily and how to overcome those obstacles.
Pros
Good shift schedules, great place to start.
Cons
Poor maintenance upkeep

Safety Manager (Former Employee) –  Hodge, LAFebruary 17, 2019
Two mill management teams: 1) initial management team was top notch, one bad project and team was dismantled. 2) second management team was all inclusive with the team members they brought from another location. 3) next management team, after my departure... back to a good work situation and environment.

Tough Work but Great Culture
Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAFebruary 14, 2019
I loved the people surrounding me. The job is very stressful because logistics is a stressful industry. You go through about 600 emails a day. A lot of people do not take lunch breaks because of how fast-paced it is. Moving up can be difficult because there is a lot of competition, but that is never a bad thing. Only makes you work harder.

Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXFebruary 11, 2019
Great place to work. All departments interact well together. Good team environment. Though the warehouse can be extremely hot, management and safety are always taking steps to make the employees in those areas safe and as comfortable as possible.

Biased Office Culture
Worker (Current Employee) –  Saint Paul, MNFebruary 8, 2019
Many individuals who have been with the company for over 20 years are allowed poor attitudes and lazy work commitments. This can also be applied to many of the managers at this facility.

Security is poor at this facility, don't leave your belongings anywhere they will be stolen, not by employees but by offenders entering the complex. Many homeless people squat on the complex and it takes an act of God to have security remove them. One can find security sleeping at point in their office.

Don't work here if you like clean! Very little is done in the office to keep it clean. Many people bring their own fridge and microwave.
Pros
Casual dress, free vibrating floor, vintage office furniture
Cons
Change is feared, dirty, cockroaches

Fast pace friendling work enviornment
Palletizer (Former Employee) –  Nicholasville, KYFebruary 6, 2019
A typical day consisted of maintaining 4 robots on the production line. Ensuring all product was sent to shipping with the highest standard of quality.
I learned several things at WestRock, from operating a fork truck to maintaining the operation of the robots.
Because this is a fast pace factory at times it could be exhausting and stressful keeping up with all the lines running.
Overall the most enjoyable part of that job was the work environment. Working such long hours with people you become very close and I felt like they were my second family.
Pros
Friendly atmosphere
Cons
very long hours

Not a good place to work.
Press Operator (Current Employee) –  Clinton, IAFebruary 6, 2019
The Clinton plant used to be a fun and productive place to work. But management has made so many changes without input from the people doing the work, that an employee spends more time doing paperwork and trying to figure out the rules then actually doing the work. Pay has not kept up other plants in the area, making it hard to stay, and hard to find good new employees. Every contract management take away more of the few remaining perks.
So if you want to be treated as a number rather then a person, this is not a terrible place, at least at first.
