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

    Pros

    I’ve worked alongside many people who started in housekeeping and are now running their own properties. La Quinta truly supports its mission to develop from within.

    Cons

    Being a midscale brand, you do have to make concessions on the service you offer to your guest due to revenue and budget restrictions.

    I have been working at LA Quinta part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    GREAT benefits: health insurance, PTO, great employee discounts.

    Cons

    First time ever hearing the term "super-part time" position is at this job. Basically they do not want to guarantee you the full-time hours. When I was hired I was told I would never get less than 35 hours, with 40 being the norm. After being hired I started getting about 32 every week. They do NOT want to give anyone overtime so they usually cap someone's hours at 38/week.

    unprofessional management, training is bad, favoritism, turnaround shifts, angry guests.

    Train your employees better, Listen to them when they tell you what is wrong and can be fixed, Know your stuff before you tell someone else what they are doing wrong.

    I have been working at LA Quinta full-time

    Pros

    Had a great culture previously . Wyndham cam through like the plague and axed about 60-70% of the corporate office. The “survivors” have the tell tale mood of people awaiting execution.

    Cons

    C-Suite management making decisions solely to line their pockets.
