It’s alright place
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Santa Fe Springs, CAFebruary 19, 2019
This place is alright for a first job. Wouldn’t recommend staying here for more than a year. You get treated unfair and pay sucks and you get no raise. Been at LKQ for about 2 years and haven’t gotten a raise. New management is trash and does not care for there employees which results in employment not caring about their work.
Pros
Healthcare, vision care, dental care
Cons
Low pay, no raises, seniority rules, magament

Learn a lot about parts and is a jungle in the warehouse
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Bronx, NYFebruary 12, 2019
First of all is an awesome place to learn about parts. Love working with machine and customer. In every job you have pros and cons. In this warehouse people love pointing finger instead of finding a solution of the problem trying to find the person whos guilty to get him/her fire. Ideas come from workers but they leave it in the air. First of all the warehouse people know it all and see more why they don't ask the employees for ideas. How to serve our customer better or how can we protect ourself from accepting merchandise that's not our. My personal experience is best to work together and give opportunity to others.

Mostly fast paced.
Auto Parts Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Redding, CAFebruary 5, 2019
Mostly fast paced sales environment. I was given a sales area that no one had been able to break into, and though I didnt meet the stated expectations, I brought sales up in that region way above what had been achieved before.

Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Eau Claire, WIJanuary 29, 2019
This job was tough because the actual warehouse was 3 hours away and everything was supposed to be done 3 hours away. If you had a problem to try to get an answer was tough.

Don't waste your time here. Go somewhere else
automotive dismantle (Current Employee) –  York, PAJanuary 28, 2019
Slave drivers. Don't waste your time you won't make anything and they change the rules daily without telling anyone. They won't fix pay issues and have favoritism with a select few employees. Don't expect heat inside in the winter either half the time it don't work.
Pros
No pros run away
Cons
Your just a number they don't care about there employees

Super stressful and they don’t care about you
Keystone delivery (Current Employee) –  Alsip, ILJanuary 26, 2019
Everyone is miserable there

Great place to work if you have no life outside of work...EVER

early start time with no guarantee of an end time even for a doctor/dentist appointment. “You’re done when you’re done”

The work is not rewarding in any way.

Policies and procedures change weekly and you are a horrible person if you do something the way it was done last week
Pros
Pay is somewhat decent with opportunity for bonus and overtime is pretty much guaranteed, Good benefits when you can use them
Cons
Work is mentally and emotionally taxing. See all above. Company is so behind technology wise.

Laid back but physically demanding workplace
Paint Specialist/City Driver (Former Employee) –  Dubuque, IAJanuary 21, 2019
Typically you have a clear and concise workload throughout the day. However it is difficult meeting job requirements with limited staff and product. Upper management does not approve the necessary stock that is needed to operate efficiently. Shipments transfers are handled poorly resulting in many damaged parts. General moral seems to be low, most likely due to compensation, which leads to employees not caring about the quality of work they provide.

Delivery Driver
Driver (Former Employee) –  Dumfries, VAJanuary 18, 2019
I would load my truck with orders. Then deliver the orders. The company was very generous. You get paid leave starting the first day. You get medical insurance after being there for 30 days. They have a 401k that starts day one and they match contributions up to 4%.
Pros
Great Company benefits
Cons
My training was lacking in detail, and the mid-level managers need to improve, but they are nice people.

Monotonous
Data Entry (Current Employee) –  Topeka, KSJanuary 13, 2019
A typical day is very routine. I learned a lot about sales and customer relations. Management is very corporate, and micromanaged. Overall moral is low. The hardest part of the job is lack of stimulation, The most enjoyable, however, is getting to meet some interesting people!
Pros
networking, building contacts
Cons
very strict schedule

Great Family Feel
Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TNJanuary 13, 2019
You will feel as if you're family working here. The pay is not great, but the time you will have with your family is a plus. I only wish that they paid better for certain positions. I could not live off of what I was making with two kids.
Pros
Great schedule and people
Cons
Low pay

Needs work
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  Sumner, WAJanuary 12, 2019
Management is terrible. Breaks my heart to say that, because it used to be a great company. Now the management has become way too inflexible. There is discrimination throughout the warehouse, and accounts of workers being targeted and pushed out the door by managment. If managment could shape up it would be a phenomenal organization. As it stands now, it unfortuatly is a disaster. Dont work here.
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours, abusive managment practices.

A proven leader in the industry
General Manager and Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  TennesseeJanuary 5, 2019
A leader in the industry and a good employer. Depending on the location and job title there is room to advance. If you want to work for a large company in the automotive parts industry then LKQ is your place.
