    I worked at LA Quinta part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Steady job with very few surprise hours.

    Cons

    Some locations have very high turn over because you are worked to death. At the front desk, it's just you. Housekeeping and GM usually around from 8am - 5pm (no GM on the weekends) only and FDSR does everything - reservations, guest relations, breakfast, emergency, etc. There is no support but an 800 number you can call if you ever screw up the FD software. Also, there is no such thing as sick days. You have to use either vacation or no pay. No such thing as advancement.

    Advice to Management

    There should be at least 2 people on staff at every location. Tell the GMs to stop being so cheap and exhausting their employees. Be more strict with franchise locations, as some violate corporate standards heavily.
