Amazing place to work !
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Golden, COFebruary 21, 2017
There isn't anything like HomeAdvisor ! Place is great, fun, exciting and upbeat. Café is good. The pay is PERFECT! Organized!
Mon-Fri ! You do your own work and it pays off. Personal life is balanced. They understand things happen and let you take care of it.
They do rallys and UNBELIEVABLE contests!
Pros
PAY, SCHEDULE, MANAGEMENT, WORK, CULTURE
Cons
JOB SECURITY !

Productive and fun environment to be around
Salesperson (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 17, 2017
Workplace is unbelievable. The office is located directly in times square, with an outdoor patio, ping pong tables and an unbelievable energy. The people and management is great, only flaw is the constant cold-calling consecutively for hours, and just the average stress of sales, but besides that it is a great place to work.

small work out room
Senior Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Golden, COJanuary 10, 2017
Review Spanish e mail and call back customers as needed. Answer inbound calls and trouble shoot problems and one call resolution. Call back customer as needed. Interact with sales rep to approve new accounts. Hardest part is to get in touch with customers. Participate in games within the department to earn extra time off or gift cards.
Pros
free lunches, and breakfasts.
Cons
not easy to follow un on breaks since sometimes phone volume was too high.

Co-workers are great. Everyone looks out for each other, would stay if there was room for advancement.
Customer Care Specialist (Current Employee) –  Golden, COJanuary 7, 2017
Very fast paced. The company is always raising numbers so you constantly have to produce more as the quarters go on. The people are friendly and willing to help. It is difficult to move up or get a higher position once you do well at your existing position you can get stuck there.
Pros
Flexible schedules, Great co-workers
Cons
No annual raises, if you don't go through the sales teams it is hard to move up in the company.

If you want to go back to kindergarten......
Customer Care (Current Employee) –  Golden, CONovember 28, 2016
A lot of millenials. Kindergarten attitude. Music blaring. Favoritism. No raises. Only way to get a raise is to apply for a different (sales related) position. Stupid coloring or search a word contests. Unsupportive management. Training insufficient & lacking. HR makes an employee feel like they are below them & the concerns voiced by the employee are insignificant and not promptly addressed. No ergonomics or noise reducing headsets provided without a doctor's note.
Pros
It's a paycheck
Cons
It's kindergarten.

N/A (Current Employee) –  Colorado Springs, CONovember 15, 2016
I actually love my job, but the pressures can be taxing. You would think after a point there would be some security. Understandably it's sales and with no pressure you don't evolve.
Pros
Great environment
Cons

Great Work Place environment.
Inside Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Olathe, KSNovember 9, 2016
The benefits here were the best of any place i have ever worked. They promote a GREAT workplace environment, as long as you make the sales there is absolutely no micromanagement.

Only downfall is that coming up with the sales is not simple for a lot of people. If you don't hit your minimum of 3 sales per week, you will be terminated. That is why I give 2 stars for job security.
Pros
It is a great place to work, you can take as many breaks as you want as long as you make sales.

fun work enviorment but terrible managing staff
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Golden, COJune 6, 2016
a day to day life at homeadvisor is crazy chaotic and fun all in one office, they do many things like games and prizes for statistics in the every day call center life, we have to meet numbers every day to fall within senior guide to make more pay and are rewarded by those numbers, although the games and fun come easy and are a joy to win, when it comes down to training and how the managers actually make us grow as employees and as a whole for the company they always seem to fall short. No sort of encouragement to do better and be better then a coloring contest and to some it may help, but id rather have a sit down to learn how to improve then a coloring page shoved in my face. the criticism they offer is far from constructive. they put you down instead of building you up and to move up from customer service, overall an ok company to work for.
Pros
fun culture, contests, team attitude
Cons
poor management, unorganized, poor communication.
