    I worked at Rock-Tenn full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, hours were long but steady. Co Workers were nice, department leaders were previous production employees and listened well to concerns.

    Cons

    Lack of sufficient training for new employees, alot of old employees were dismissed uncluding my direct supervisor, leaving me with no help when I needed it. They are sometimes too quick to fire people, and do not utilize a fair disciplinary procedure such and 1st, 2nd written warnings, or suspensions. Just straight to the firing. They've lost a considerable amount of dedicated, qualified people that would only need a verbal warning to correct any disciplinary actions.

    Advice to Management

    Train Ops Managers and Human Resource associates to utilize a better structured disciplinary system. It seems folks at WestRock / Rock Tenn feel that people respond better under threat of losing their jobs and livelihood rather than a quick discussion to correct workplace policy violations.
