    Pros

    The possibilities are endless. Great benefits. Supportive upper management. Opportunity for growth through online training. Good pay, flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Would like to see more communication from a Corp level out to the facilities. Has been getting better in the last year.

    I have been working at LKQ

    Pros

    Like someone else stated.. There will always be someone needed car parts.. and the Medical Bens are decent.. 401k Decent

    Cons

    Were to start?
    Terrible Vacation... No Sick Time.. No Compensation.. You have to pay for your own staples.. pens.. paper.. If you complain they will terminate you in a heart beat.. No advancement at all..
    They hire outside the company even when they have qualified people to fit the spots. Before terminating employees they post their jobs on Monster to fill. Our location is open 362 days a year.. That means they only have 3 days they are closed!!! Yes 3 days.. The only people that are making money is the Upper Management that drive in with their Cadillac and then tell you that their are NO RAISES!!! Ohhh and don't forget that their kids are going to walk in the door making double what you are making. The list goes on and on and on.. Terrible company to work for.. But until something else opens, I will suck it up, and when something else opens, ill be gone..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop breaking promises.. Don't tell people they are getting a raise if they are not.. Its mean and cruel.. If the CEO really wanted to know how his employees feel about working for the company WHY NOT DO A QUESTIONER Anonymous? They had us fill out surveys and put our names at the top of it... and then terminate people who complain??
