    Laundry Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bozeman, MT
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at La Quinta (Bozeman, MT) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Went through a lot of unnecessary psychological questioning as to the importance of being a laundry attendant and what role it plays in the company and also asking a lot of redundant questions about the same topic only using different words they made it seem like I was applying for a job at NASA I mean seriously you basically wait for the dirty laundry to come to you you put it in the washer wait for that put it in the dryer wait for that and then continue to finish the rest of the load by folding and stacking how much psychological intelligence do you need to do something that simple

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at La Quinta (Las Vegas, NV) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I put in my application. My brother worked there so he handed it to the manager. A few days later, I was told to come in and I met with the general manager. He hired me on the spot because they needed someone badly and I had a clean driving record. He asked if I could drive a van and how important customer service was. I started working a couple days later.

    Area Director of Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at La Quinta (Dallas, TX) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Was contacted by recruiter from La Quinta Corporate HR after being referred by local sales Colleague. Telephone interview lasted 40 minutes and included typical questions re: experience, likes/dislikes, etc. Recruiter was very professional and personable and closed conversation explaining that I would be contacted by Regional DOS for next step. Was contacted approximately 7 days later by Regional DOS via telephone. Was told upon conclusion of interview that I would be contacted by VP of Sales after their annual sales rally, which would take place the following week.

    Reasons for Declining

    I did not pursue further as I did not feel the 2nd interviewer possessed the articulation skills or industry knowledge of someone I would do well reporting to. I also did not want to be part of an organization that place such little importance on filling such a critical position.

    Assistant General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I applied on line, the next day I received a call to set up the interview, I was so excited.
    I scheduled the interview by phone, I thought interview went very well. I took the on line screening. Two weeks went by, no phone calls or emails. I then called HR, they said everyone was at the Convention. For me to wait. so I waited another 10 days. So after a total of 4 weeks, I got a voice mail, if I was interested in a personal interview, to call and the local GM would interview me. Sadly I had an ER situation for my family. I was not able to interview.I think I was labeled for life. I kept calling, emailing, I applied four more times, I was told someone else was hired.
    I am so dissapointed, that I thought this was a wonderful national chain, I am well trained as a GM and would have been grateful to be an ASST MGR. with this Company, however, I will never ever be given the chance, because I was at the ER. than one day.
    sad, the position is now open again, and several more. they could have had a great Asst Mgr. who would have helped them rank high, and been loyal to them for years to come.
    But Darn the emergency we had, will haunt me:(.
    Wait, not anymore, I just got the job of my dreams, yesterday :)))
    and it's not La Quinta .
