Good work place
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON28 December 2018
Good workplace. I was a fulltime worker there over there and I found nice management and good line leader. Light work and perfect shift (7-3) which was good for me. They never forced to stay for over time.

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.
Pros
Close to home

General Helper (Former Employee) –  Candiac, QC25 July 2018
Not a good place to work overall, the turnover rate is high. Work is super boring and repetitive, 12 hrs of standing. 3 days you work equals to no life. Not worth trying!

Continuous Improvement Required
J&L Folder Gluer Operator (Current Employee) –  Burlington, ON19 March 2013
Working in a fast paced environment, manufacturing corrugated containers. Within the assembly line, employees learn to identify non conformances of before and end product(s). Most employees are fully cross-trained on most machines, so teamwork is always possible. This job requires repetitive movement, standing for seven hours a day, with proper personal protective equipement. If you are an employee who wants to achieve the best, and do what is best for the company and the customer, this job is perfect for you.
Pros
work ethics, overtime, medical benefits
Cons
layoffs due to nature of business

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.

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.
