    I have been working at LA Quinta full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company is always seeking to improve, always reaching for excellence. There are plenty of opportunities to grow as a person and develop new skills. La Quinta guests are mostly easy-going. They just want a clean, comfortable room and to be treated with kindness and respect.

    Cons

    The hospitality environment can be chaotic at times. You are expected to take care of the guest in front of you, answer the phone within 3 rings, and do whatever needs to be done to make sure guests have a positive experience at your hotel. It is not uncommon to be juggling several of these activities at once.

    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.
