I worked in the ghetto region of Colorado and it was not fun at all, the building is filthy, plus rude supervisors and unprofessional coworkers, turnover rate is beyond normal in this place, it is a revolving door for managers, staff and guest. I dealt with a cheap employer and work benefits, and please do not even complain because HR screams out of lungs to intimidate employees. This was a horrible work experience, they have leadership issues! They have changed management too many times in a couple of months, I was stuck in 16 hour shift without breaks because my supervisor refused to cover, and she NEVER has done a night audit after 25 years in the company, even when it is in her job description. This place is so bad that a room costs over $65 in Downtown Denver, yes in Downtown Denver (awkward!). I should have paid attention to the awful TripAdvisor reviews before taking a job here, I would save the headache and humiliating treatment, they are cruel enough to take your job right before Christmas. The District Manager is so mean. Every single GM comes and fires all staff to replace it with Motel 6 or another competitor to get loyalty instead of efficient people. Management is too immature.
I worked for almost a year in this company, Lord! I wished I researched online this location before working in it, It is just a disaster: filthy place, rude supervisors, angry guests, mean co-workers with poor hygiene. Long hours of work, and they cannot keep a General Manager for more than 2 weeks, turnover rate is ridiculous here, every single manager fired people and hired more! They do not care about employee retention and empowerment, they are so evil that they take jobs just right before Christmas. Inhuman treatment.
My management stay at LaQuinta has been rewarding and broadened my skills tremendously. I ultimately resigned due to a failed transfer/relocation by owners after relocating my life at my expense and left without said opportunity. Ownership of the franchise differs in each location least not judge all the same.
