I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at La Quinta in Jan 2022

Interview

The manager was extremely busy when I arrived. I was 5 minutes early. I waited as she asked. She was very professional and explained the job. I had worked Customer service for 18 years and she seem to think she had to explain that to me. I didn't understand that after she ask me what I did in my CSM jobs. She was friendly, but seemed to be annoyed. I felt like I was bothering her and she needed to be somewhere else.

Interview was typical and the district and general manager indicated there interest in moving forward with the hiring process, as they had states that I was the most qualified candidate they had interviewed until thus far. Follow up emails with the managers and recruiters were ignored and no response as to wether I was considered or not was received.
