    Pros

    Flexible hours, the company takes care of you, it's easy to work full time and keep good grades while in school full time.

    Cons

    Very few. Generally the biggest cons come from drunk and disorderly guests, not from within the company.

    Advice to Management

    There's not much to add. La Quinta is one of the better chains in the business to work for.

    Pros

    The staff is really nice we try our best to satisfy the guests. We all work well together.

    Cons

    The pay is not good for this location. We all work very hard. Other LQ'S pay more. No room for advancement. FDSR II ( Front Desk Supervisor ) is the highest one can go. I worked here for 13 years. Which I am. The pay is only at $12.64. Seems like you have to quit and get rehire to get a decent pay increase at LaQuinta

    Advice to Management

    We have a lot of long term employees at our location. They should do a accurate wage survey on surrounding hotels in the area. If we did not have a very nice manager I'm pretty sure most of us would have left the company for another hotel chain.

  11. Lots of hours - great company
