Don't be fooled
INSIDE SALES CONSULTANT (Former Employee) –  Golden, COMay 5, 2016
I worked for Home Advisor back when it was "Service Magic'...hint hint...they changed their name and their brand because Service Magic provided a terrible product and service. During my time there, the Attorney General of California was suing them, if that's not bad advertising I don't know what is. The pay was okay and the benefits were good. The training was medicare and you are constantly reminded that your job is on the line every week if you do not produce. Its a shady company with a bad product. They seem great on the outside, but on the inside they're rotten.
Pros
Casual Dress, Free Soda, Game Rooms
Cons
Back products / services / management is terrible / training is terrible

Can be emotionally draining

Terrible place to work
Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Golden, COApril 27, 2016
McDonalds pays more. Management lies about everything. Workforce includes ex felons. No room for growth. HR lies. Don't believe anything anyone says at HomeAdvisor.
Pros
free soda and beer
Cons
everything else

Marketing Consultant (Current Employee) –  Lenexa, KSMarch 22, 2016
Great culture and a lot of fun to be there. The commission scale is very large but you will have to earn it for sure. outbound calling all day is a must.

Poor training and cut throat
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Golden, COMarch 16, 2016
The training is horrible & although they will tell you you get 6 weeks of it don't be fooled. They will put you on the floor in 3 days expecting that you will know the job.
The training is POOR and rushed.
You will be constantly worried about keeping your job since they remind you over and over again that if you don't meet goals your out.
They will promise you everything to get you in the door and it's not at all what they claim.
They expect you to memorize or read a 4 page script to someone on the phone!
Pros
beer - casual dress code
Cons
constant worry of job security- Pay - training

Cold calling contractors to learn about their company and their needs and wants to grow their company. Explain to them how Home Advisor works. Go through and application with the contractor. Try to get them in our network.

If I could give this company -0 rating I would. Do not work for them. You will end up looking for another position. Not worth your time.

Zero Support and everyone is lying all the time
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COFebruary 10, 2016
This company is an absolute JOKE. Managers do nothing to help you but it is a tele marketer job so what do you expect... They do everything in their power to not pay you your commissions. And could not care a bit about you or if you quit. They just want you to dial ALL DAY, and get whatever you can dig up. They listen in on your calls and mico manage you to death.
Everything promised in this job did not turn out, they lie to get you in. But anyone with a brain in their head will catch on the first day what a scam they are. They also have you lie to the customers as well, I feel so bad whenever I sign up someone.
Pros
One guy who sat next to me was nice
Cons
Forced to dial 300 people everyday

Great Workplace with Pingpong tables
Inside Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Lenexa, KSJanuary 27, 2016
Truly a great place to work. Everyone is always available to help with whatever it is you need. Typically a day would start with your team huddle and recognize all sales from the previous day. There was always a bunch of enthusiasm and energy from the second you stepped into the office until the moment you were leaving. Management was always there for you and helped with training whenever needed. The hardest part of the job was cold calling contractors and them hanging up before you said anything or them cussing you out. Most enjoyable was the people working with you!
Pros
Free Soda
Cons
Sales expectations (wasn't that bad though)

Overall HomeAdvisor was a great place to work during my tenure. The people were great, the incentives were excellent and management was always pumping people up. It was a high energy call center that I miss and hope to find again soon.
Pros
Free pop, great sales incentives

Not many
