    House Keeper Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at LA Quinta.

    Interview

    Hardly a process since they rushed me into the job. My guess is with how they treat employees like dirt they can't really keep many of them. They had me stand by and watch one of the other house keepers clean a room to see if I'd still be interested in the job. It didn't look too difficult, but I guess that's because there were two people working on the same room at once. Soon after I was hired it was everyone for themselves.

    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.
