    Pros

    LKQ can be a good place to start your career. LKQ often will hire those with little experience, so it is a good place for resume building.

    Cons

    They do not value their employees the way that they should. It is very difficult to get a pay increase unless you change roles. The benefits are also not the best. They only offer 2 weeks PTO...total. There is no sick time or vacation time it is all rolled into the 2 weeks PTO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees more and less of them will leave.

    I worked at LKQ full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay is adequate but no increases even when company shows profit each year.

    Cons

    Hard working employees are not given a fair wage even after the company demands they take on more responsibilties. There is no loyalty to employees they are afraid to speak up in fear of losing their jobs. Never recieved an evaluation even after employee requested one, then when company is not making budget they let them go even after being told they are doing a great job no issues at the day of firing. No communication from the managemnet to the working employees. This has got to be one of the worst management teams I have ever dealt with. The favortism runs rampet in this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of current management. Realize your sales guys are just order takers. It's your dismantlers, parts delivery drivers, yard crew and warehouse workers that are the ones that make the management and the company successful. Train them, mentor them, reward them for a solid days work and if the company makes a profit reward those that contributed to the success. Stop worrying so much about your yearly bonuses and stock holders so much. It's the loyal workers that suffer because of your inability to identify the issues and take the correct course of action to get the customers to buy your parts.
