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

    Pros

    I loved working with my returning customers and seeing them happy and satisfied.

    Cons

    At the location I was employed, the management was condescending to housekeeping staff. He would not allow employment growth to female employees. He hired only males to work the front desk. I was already a front desk clerk before he came on, but there were none after me. The pay is terrible all around, especially considering the amount of work this job entails. Also, manager insisted that the housekeepers reuse unwrapped bar soap for the laundry. I thought this was disgusting, so I voiced my concerns to corporate, but nothing was done. He is still the manager of this location.

    There are no benefits. You don't even get a discount on a room. There is no insurance and almost impossible to get a raise
