    Maintenance Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Pompano Beach, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pompano Beach, FL
    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 days - interviewed 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.

    Negotiation Details
    No room for negotiation. Take it or leave it was the response of the General Manager. 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.

    Area Director of Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  DFW, TX
    Anonymous Employee in DFW, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 5 days - interviewed at LA Quinta in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by recruiter from La Quinta Corporate HR after being referred by local sales Colleague. Telephone interview lasted 40 minutes and included typical questions re: experience, likes/dislikes, etc. Recruiter was very professional and personable and closed conversation explaining that I would be contacted by Regional DOS for next step. Was contacted approximately 7 days later by Regional DOS via telephone. Was told upon conclusion of interview that I would be contacted by VP of Sales after their annual sales rally, which would take place the following week.

    Reasons for Declining

    I did not pursue further as I did not feel the 2nd interviewer possessed the articulation skills or industry knowledge of someone I would do well reporting to. I also did not want to be part of an organization that place such little importance on filling such a critical position.
