great career if you want to work , not a good job for someone who wants to just kick back and collect a check

I have been working at LKQ

Pros

awesome benefits, great money , great vacation,and I get along great with my sales manager...plus its very close to my home ...about a 10 minute commute

Cons

other employees that hate their jobs and whine and cry that salesmen make too much money, yet they couldnt survive working a commission job if their lives depended on it.and drivers who damage product and dont get held accountable

Advice to ManagementAdvice

have a policy that if you damage a part and dont report it and it makes it to the customer not matching the description , it comes out of the pay of the last person who scanned it .credits will go down and people will take more pride in the product being sold

    Pros

    401k, PTO was good when they actually remembered to put it on your pay.

    Cons

    Commission pay was always inaccurate, 6 years working & training others and never received a review, promotion or pay increase, management is a joke, no incentives, poor customer service, very poor quality checks on merchandise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least in the aldine westfield location there needs to be major changes regarding "management" if they would like to see some real progress. treat your good employees with the respect that comes with hard work. You get what you pay for, meaning keep hiring inadequate people and keep having the same old problems.

    Pros

    Mon-Fri workweek , that's about it.

    Cons

    Always running, delivering parts. Never knowing when your day will end. No time to think straight.
    They want you to talk and upsell the customers but if you did you would be putting in 14 hour days maybe more. Money compared to hours worked not worth the aggravation.
    STAY AWAY

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue!!! You don't have to work people to death!
