I worked at LA Quinta

Pros

In this economy it is great to have a job and even though La Quinta isn't perfect the employees make it a great place to work. Management is consistently inconsistent in the way they lead the company but I will be here at least until the economy improves.

Cons

- Low paying job
-Long hours
-Lack of communication with management
-No upward advancement opportunities
-Less than average flexibility in regards to work from home

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give employees the opportunity to advance. Much of the good talent tends to move on to other companies because they either feel under-appreciated or unchallenged.

    I worked at LA Quinta

    Pros

    Slow shift. Quick Audit. Regulars in the morning are nice. Manager was very helping during my employment there. Owners were nice.

    Cons

    There were no locks on the night shift. No video cameras. Pay was horrible. No benefits or holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more benefits to your employees. Make them feel wanted and pay for holidays. Those are important here in America.

    Pros

    The best thing about LQ is the family oriented culture, and work life balance. A lot of the upper management has been there for years and years, and treats it like their baby,

    Cons

    Lots of systems issues, Blackstone owns it and has a tight wallet when it comes to any internal resources for IT, which means its all India sourced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand up to Blackstone - you are the experts!
