Horrible place to work
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Golden, COJanuary 18, 2019
There is a lot of politics. They don't appreciate anyone no even the top producers . They make their rules as they go and treat everyone unequally. People are rude specially management. I would not recommend working here. Ive lasted a while do to the fact that I liked a lot of co workers but that is it.

Job is ok for ages 18-25 yrs old
Project Advisor (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INDecember 20, 2018
Will be an awesome job for 18 to 25 year old with no real responsibilities no kids no family. It started off good and then after that making $11 an hour. How are you supposed to feed a family of three ? Not to mention the benefits so you be bringing home probably 400 every two weeks

Very rude management
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Golden, CODecember 14, 2018
The management will make you feel completely stupid especially during the interview. They ask ridiculous questions then look at you as if they’re harshly judging you if you don’t “answer correctly.” I have exceptional experience and they denied me a position based off of the one interview where they couldn’t even get an actual manager to complete the interview process, and they did have someone take notes of my resolponses and pass them along. It seems like a great company, but the people are shady and rude.

ok place to work
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Mesa, AZDecember 7, 2018
job was good for the most part, you had to really cross sell services to customers. A good place to learn customer service. There are chances to move up in company.
Pros
provide free lunch and snacks at certain times
Cons
if did not meet number of cross sells there may be a write up

Great place to work
Media Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Manhattan, NYDecember 7, 2018
Great work environment and atmosphere. The only thing i had an issue with was the commission plan. They changed the plan a few months after i started working there making it unrealistic to hit commission goals. Job security is not there.
Pros
Great people, free food.
Cons
Lack of job security

Not a fun place
Sales/Marketing Intern (Former Employee) –  Denver, CODecember 4, 2018
The idea that we were told and had to input into our calls every day was a lie. I did not think that I helped my customers at all and felt bad when I would onboard them to the company

Great Place but stressful
SALES CONSULTANT (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, KSNovember 20, 2018
If you love cold calling, SUPER. If you don't, STAY AWAY. The culture is great and the people are even better. The job can be stressful because you spend your day cold calling contractors who usually hang up on you. Hopefully you don't fear rejection.

Good place to work
Admissions Specialist (Current Employee) –  Golden, CONovember 16, 2018
A typical day at was repetitive. You review account after account to have them active in the system, receiving leads. This is required to grow the network. Very detail oriented and not for everyone.

Be Wary
Senior Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 14, 2018
HomeAdvisor has all the flashy perks that make employees think its great. Unfortunately, it is anything but.

The amount of time wasted during meetings is unbelievable.

I constantly saw issues in regards to the integrity of the office.

Too many slaps on the wrist and not enough action.

Employees getting "lunch" on the job....at the bar around the corner, just to come back and get back on the phones. The list goes on.

To their credit, the money isn't terrible if you are alright at the job and they are decent at equipping their employees for the phones. Although 90% of you will leave and say how much you didn't enjoy working there.

Don't plan on retiring
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INNovember 12, 2018
If you're making sales you're the greatest person in there the moment you stop making sales they want you to get out as quick as possible, which is kind of common in sales but in this line of product the customer is unpredictable the response is unpredictable there for your career with them is unpredictable, for business has been around for 10 + years but has no employees around for that amount of time is very scary
Pros
Happy hour, pay
Cons
Positions never secure you can be replaced at any time

Great co-worker
CSR Inbound (Former Employee) –  Golden, CONovember 11, 2018
Everyone will form their own opinions of the company. But at the end of the day you'll always feel a sense of security with your co-works , they become like a second family to you. In my personal opinion they should be more flexible with the shifts and not only have full- time. Amazing food trucks weekly and the best benefits plan.
Pros
food trucks, co-workers
Cons
to many to list

Interviewed
Online Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INOctober 30, 2018
HR very professional. Hiring Manger: We want salespeople to smell blood in the water like Sharks. Wanted short term sales. Not interested in a long term relationship with a customer. Slash and Burn sales. Have seen this in the car business. You can make money at this company, If you have this mentality.
Pros
Pays well.
Cons
Make a sale by all means necessary.

Just OK
Sales (Former Employee) –  Golden, COOctober 23, 2018
The growth this company has achieved has been done through sketchy sales practices and amazing customer service. The product is sold very ambiguously, and it is taught to be sold that way which causes a lot of confusion, frustration and a very upset client base. A typical day in sales is making over 400 cold calls trying to incentivize contractors to buy the leads and the process is very misleading. A typical day in customer service is dealing with a flurry of complaints from aggressive contractors who are angry about bad leads and want their money back which HA does not offer. There are good leads, and this company has helped some, but it has mislead and hurt many more than it has helped. I enjoyed the great people I worked with, and the nights and weekends off.
Pros
Working for a growing company, loose dress code, nice office.
Cons
Lots of hostile daily interactions, poor management, no ethics in the sales department

Nice place, but cold calling is hard to do.
Sales Consultant (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INOctober 18, 2018
If you are great at cold calling you can make amazing money here. 40K base salary. Expect to make 100-150 calls a day calling contractors to join HA. The benefits are amazing (again - if you can make it and stay). Employees are like in a revolving door. Managers, for the most part, stay, but not many can hack it for more than 6 months. They've lowered the sales quotas. If you can get hired in the winter time when contractors are needing HA it's great. The other quarters are much tougher.
Not a long term job for most. Think 6mos to a year. Some make it longer, just not many.
Weekends off unless you want to sell on Saturday to make your quota.
Expect to pay for parking - $60- $120 a month.
Pros
Great atmosphere. Lots of fun diversions for breaks.
Cons
Not a long term job.

The Benefits were Wonderful
Online Sales Marketing (Former Employee) –  Golden, COOctober 11, 2018
I can say for the fast-paced world of marketing they had no problem taking care of their salesmen. I would honestly say they are treated beyond anything you would expect.

Spent a year here
INSIDE SALES CONSULTANT (Former Employee) –  Lenexa, KSOctober 4, 2018
Sales job for aggressive people. Several one call closes and must be quick with replies. Quick sales cycle and will be good for practicing your pitch as an entry level sales rep.

no integrity
Executive Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COSeptember 27, 2018
HomeAdvisor takes advantage of contractors and employees their only concern is upper management bottom line. I would never recommend working for them. They were good once and then they became a corporation now it is a horrible place to work. $
Pros

Lousy Directors no clue what employees do only value money

Wouldn't Work There Again
ONLINE MARKETING CONSULTANT (Former Employee) –  Golden, COSeptember 19, 2018
The people are really nice to work with but the majority of people you're making sales calls to are rude or just hard to work with. People lie to you all day even to the point of coming in on your day off then they miss an appointment, just gets really frustrating. Options on their 401 (k) could be worse but could be a lot better a lot of it goes into funds based around oil which if you're younger seems like it'd crash right around the time you want to retire. There's some question about how well the system works for the contractors.
Pros
Great Coworkers
Cons
Dull, Getting Yelled At Constantly, Difficult People, Not Sure About The Product
