I worked at LA Quinta part-time (Less than a year)Doesn't RecommendDoesn't Recommend
Varied customer interaction. Lots of different projects to keep busy during the day. Flexible schedule options. Rate discounts for employees.
Being understaffed on high occupancy nights. Not getting sufficient training up front and being thrown into the fray. No real opportunity to advance unless you change locations. Security not always present at night to buildings open to the public.
Advice to Management
Compensate the dedicated trained people you have so they stay on to train other employees. Keep scheduling open to everyone so misunderstandings do not occur. Training should include the basics and procedure manuals available to all for everything else.

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.
