I have been working at LA Quinta full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Nice hotels and great brand presentation. Very friendly clientele that are extremely loyal to the brand which lends itself to stronger connections to those regular guests.

Cons

Very autonomous environment where the company is willing to discredit employee to avoid taking ownership of their decisions that make guest and cooperating companies unhappy

Advice to Management

Stronger policies need to be applied to franchise locations in regards to benefits packages as none are offered in some locations.

    I worked at LA Quinta part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was your basic limited service hotel. You got a taste of being in the hotel industry and the systems that were in place compared to other hotel companies I worked at were actually better integrated.

    Cons

    Management loved to always call 15 minutes before a shift was supposed to start even on a day off and tell me to make it there or I was fired. Both FOM and GM were almost impossible to get ahold of most times. Not enough support for backup for employees when it gets busy.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that to a lot of people in the business this might be their first step into the door of hospitality. If you don't want to have a constant turnover rate stop belittling and treating your employees like they're less than people.
