I have been working at LKQ full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Keystone is an easy laid back work environment, with a lot of great people to work with throughout the entire organization.. Before the were purchased by LKQ in 2007 they were a great place to work financially as well.

Cons

When purchased by LKQ it became a good ole boys club, people got positions in the company based on who they knew instead of their qualifications. They also no longer pay their employees well at all. It is only a matter of time before they will start loosing some of those great employees because they will not compensate them appropriately.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Instead of buying up every business you can find begin looking at ways to keep the talent you have.

    LIES LIES LIES, is all u get from them i worked for a personally owned salvageyard and lkq bought us. they told us they where insurance ppl just looking at stuff then all of a sudden lkq owned us. we where told nothing would change. right, everythig has changed, pay, the way cars are dismantled, management, ppl got demoted. i went to comission and i worked my butt for two weeks and made 1900 dollars after taxes and then all of a sudden that wasnt ok so they said i was only getting paid hourly for the last two weeks. CROOKS!!!! so here i am out on 900 dollars

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    figure out your comission rates and how things are going to work before you promise money and not give it
