Poor
Press Assistant (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON10 November 2018
I worked at WestRock Mississauga for two years. The overall experience was horrible, management does not listen to employees on subject matter that they have no idea about. The actual employees besides management is great but they work every one like slaves.

BEWARE-----Workplace Clique-- Etobicoke Division
PROJECT MANAGER (Current Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON31 July 2018
Because of the mean workplace clique at Westrock it cause the company to have a mean hostile work environment. The SAD part is that Management and HR promotes this type of culture. The overall toxicity of the place is just plain gross.

Summer Student
Student Worker (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK31 January 2018
Hard manual labor. Co-workers are mostly nice and breaks are fair. It is a good job to keep you physically active but only for so long before it becomes harmful.
Pros
Long breaks. High starting pay.
Cons
Hot environment. Hard repeating manual labor.

My Review of Westrock.
Operator (Former Employee) –  730 Islington Ave.11 January 2018
Management was more concerned with the politics on the floor then they were with maintaining the machinery and upholding a good relationship with the union and its workers.
