Extremely poor management
Front Desk (Former Employee) –  boiseJune 16, 2019
The management at a property is unbelievable, they want you to take charge, be a leader, and want you to do all the work, but then proceed to punish, talk down to you, and bad mouth with in other associates, it is a unfair and uneven playing field with the company, management holds grudges, does not educate you to improve, and become a better individual with in the workplace, they will over load your work schedule and expect you to do it all, they fail to value the associates, or anyone at that. poor communication, the management only cares about it self and thats it, nothing about or for the associates, its a main task to them to just sit behind a desk and micro manage with out providing guidance for success. its a very low growth rate, or promotion rate job.
Pros
none
Cons
management, poor scheduling, lack of associates, poor housekeeping, lack of attention to property

DESK SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) –  Roswell, NMJune 7, 2019
Even with the pay being at the low end of the spectrum La Quinta is a great place to work. The management team on site were always very friendly and professional. The best part was meeting all the neat people coming through town.

Horrible place to work
Housekeeping (Former Employee) –  Niagara Falls, NYJune 7, 2019
Horrible place to work, they hire anyone. Staff plays nice until things don’t go their way. You’re talked about behind your back on the job. Pillowcases are not changed, neither are the blankets. No cleaner is allowed on the floor. Toilet brushes are used everywhere in the bathroom. Your paycheck will always be late. This place needs to be shut down.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
Very short breaks

When I worked there the people were amazing. Only downside is that some tasks get old really quickly. I would recommend this job to a friend if they were looking for good work.

Front Desk Representative, Night Auditor (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNJune 6, 2019
There is no room for advancement with this company. I've been working for LaQuinta off and on since 2014, it's a easy job but it doesn't matter how much experience you have they are not fair in compensation. There are NO benefits as well. This is a pit stop job until the real thing comes along. LaQuinta offers NO livable wage.
Pros
Flexible schedule
Cons
Very low wages, no benefits

It was okay
Maintenance (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJune 4, 2019
Working maintenance the job was very stressful because job orders would come in sometimes very quickly and you were asked to address those issues probably even if you had other work to do so that was very stressed. Other days it would be extremely slow and you would have to find things to do so there is no even balance in the job.
