This place has got to be the most miserable place to work in Guelph. Co-workers treat you less than garbage when you have to wear their stupid yellow hat while your on your probationary period. Constant humiliation is common place over the radio that you must wear to communicate with co-workers for doing your job, which they rarely use unless its to make derogatory comments about basically everything but work. If you are part of their union you can get away with anything. Supervisors and management are a complete joke and barely give you any training. I worked there for 88 days and two days before I would be hired full time, they terminated me. I would not recommend this place to anyone. If you know someone in management or someone in their union it might be different.
management, terrible union, rotating shifts every week, rude co-workers.
Unemployed (Former Employee) - Winnipeg, MB - 19 February 2020
This is Canada, if you don’t like the laws we have in place here then don’t come open up a business here. Follow the same rules and regulations as the city you’re in. Simple. Nobody wants to work for a bunch of squares.
Being part of the management team at Westrock was challenging and rewarding during my years of employment.
The hardest part of the job was being able to accurately diagnose complex mechanical/electrical problems on high speed production machinery.
i never got the right training. people were lazy. i would not recommend to any one working at westrock. id rather work for government. this was by far the worst job experience i have ever done and i need to delete from my resume asap!
Westrock does not care about their Canadian employees. This US centric company is all about the bottom line and has no compassion for staff who worked for the company for years. After being laid off they promised to place people in jobs but when several of the team called HR in Mississauga Ontario the HR department did not even have the decency to reply.
I got hired through a temp agency and didn't know much about company procedures. They showed me around and the next day I was on the grind. It was a humid environment, lots of grunt work. Our job was to print beer/cold drink boxes and stack them onto pallets along with trash disposal and clean up. Often times the conveyer belt would get jammed, or the copy machines wouldn't print right. Other than that it was pretty repetitive.
Too many Chiefs not enough Indians. Nobody will listen to Good ideas? It's pathetic really bad.Not appreciated for all you do, terrible management, people steal your lunches yeah it's a regular thing lol don't leave your lunch in the fridge it will get stolen
I was impressed with the frequency and thoroughness of weekly team meetings. Topics discussed ranged from safety issues to work anniversaries to production planning. Management was keen to connect with teams to improve processes and encourage safety improvements.
I like working environment, good supervisor, and great team.
The most enjoyable part of the job is to be a part of the team. It was a great experience to work at the cosmetics manufacturing company, to learn about business strategy and product design.
