I have been working at LA Quinta full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Semi decent pay. Semi decent management. Semi decent benefits. Basically it's an okay company to work for.

Cons

No room for advancement at all. Once you become General Manager, the next spot is either taking a corporate position in Irving, Texas. Or getting to the next position of Regional V.P. Good look with that. They are currently held by a bunch of 50+ year old men who plan on retiring from those posts. If one does open up you have to compete against hundreds of other manager plus whoever they decide to interview from outside the company.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The downtime can be spent reading or doing homework. The coworkers were nice and fun to work with. Sometimes you would get to meet cool and interesting guests.

    Cons

    The owner was very incompetent. The front desk workers had to run the entire hotel so he could go do what he wanted. He refused to hire a manager so it felt very disorganized. If you can't handle angry or belligerent people, you probably won't like this job.

    Advice to Management

    You should hire a manager or promote one of the veteran front desk workers that basically already does it.
