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

    Pros

    You can learn how to handle stressful situations on your own. You meet people from all over the world. You also see some of the same people and get to know them, too. Formal training was provided. Discounts at other sites if you wanna stay there while traveling. Promotions are possible but will need to be open to moving to another site. This site doesn't allow you to go past 2013 date but I worked there in 2010.

    Cons

    There are only three shifts to choose from so flexible schedule isn't really flexible. Pay isn't the best.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. No favoritism.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at LA Quinta.

    Interview

    I felt like it went well , but also felt my age of 52, is working against me . Even asked if I was over 40 on app. Feels like disrimination.
