    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at LA Quinta in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was hired on the spot after 5 minutes conversation because it looked like nobody wanted that position at the place. My suspect was real.
    Usually they hire people with a very low salary even if you have very good skills. They try to milk you by paying a very low wage and they don't care about your experience and skills at all.
    It seemed they were panicked because they were unable to find anybody to do the job.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Orleans, LA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at LA Quinta in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview process started with a phone interview with a recruiter. Next step was another phone interview with the regional sales director. Next was in-erson interview on property with GM and AGM. Next interview took place in Dallas with VP of Sales.

    Interview Questions
    • None that I can think of...pretty typical questions. I did have concerns about how they expected me to run my sales week and the lack of help with paperwork and on-property things. When I would bring up these concerns, I heard over and over "you book it, and operations cooks it" That did not happen. You book it and operations blames you when they drop the ball.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The salary was fair and no negotiation was needed, other than approval for a already-scheduled vacation.
