Horrible
Project Advisor-Pod Leader (Current Employee) –  Lincoln, NEApril 8, 2019
The absolute worst place I have ever worked. The bosses are awful and just make you feel bad about yourself, some workers are snobby and dramatic and leadership wouldn’t listen to anybody about ways to make people happy. Do NOT ever work there

Managers should have to take things on as a manager and not out everything on their representatives when they haven't been coached to do something like that.
Pros

Was fun but needs higher pay
Project Advisor (Former Employee) –  Golden, COMarch 30, 2019
The job itself is easy and the people are amazing people. However, the pay is not enough to live off of for the area. The managers are payed very well and other departments as well. They pay less then what a 16-18 year old can get at a fast food restaurant. They are a “party” kind of environment as well, they encourage fun and being yourself.

Good people to work with, micro managing and bad leads
Online Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INMarch 26, 2019
Cold calling bad leads that have been called a thousand times. Too much micro management and high stress for numbers at all cost. Also you don’t get very good and thorough training on the online sales system.
Pros
Mon-Fri, and on-site Fitness center
Cons
Short breaks and poor management

Good for college grads or people who enjoy repetition
Project Advisor (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INMarch 17, 2019
If you want a job where the environment is filled with moldy air, mice dead or alive, and a place that in the winter has people bringing their own space heaters and wearing coats and blankets all day, then you may enjoy this location. Not all locations are like this- this one just happens to be an example. Managers are "some good" "some act like children". There is little to no ability to move upward from this location. If you enjoy mental stimulation- not the place for you. If you enjoy zombie work- repetition- and getting hung up on 200 dials a day- jump in.

Extremely difficult job, if you can make it 6 months, you are the minority.
Online Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INMarch 13, 2019
It was s very high energy, fast paced work environment, however there were many questionable things that went on.
We were held to a very high standard on our metrics daily. (Dials and talk time)
I would not recommend H.A. as a career choice
Pros
Base + commission
Cons
Unrealistic goals, fire for no reason.

good company to work for
Media Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 10, 2019
Good management and benefits (dinner and lunch every day). The day to day is a total grind (expect to make over 200 calls a day to start out) but thankfully the culture helps make it less of a drudgery.
Pros
Free lunch and dinner
Cons
Cold Calling all day

Hard sales job - Not very easy
Phone Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COMarch 8, 2019
The training was almost nil and they based on that it was fighting an up hill battle just to hang on. Management does help you but the leads they provided were terrible and that's being nice.

They expect a lot but do not provide with the leads to really succeed.
They contrators do not want to talk with you, they know you are calling and usually tell you to (explitive) or just hang up. It's a tough job from that standpoint. It seemed that the sales leaders on the team were getting prospected leads and seemed to be a little more successful - then you would get all their old leads to call - not a good formula to get people to sell especially when you are brand new.

Beware - they talk about making the $100,000 but in reality if you make 50-60 yearly you would be doing fantastic. To get to that point it takes a lot of hard work and most people are just hanging on.

To me a 30,000 a year job coupled with how difficult it is and the bad training, bad leads makes for a an unpleasant experience.

I would not reccommend this job!
Pros
High energy atmosphere
Cons
Bad training, bad leads, very high expectations.

Productive fun office with ping pong tables
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Denver, COMarch 6, 2019
Every morning you would meet with your sales team to discuss strengths and weakness's from the day before and have a new plan of attack for the day at hand. No cubicles with loud music playing throughout the day as you cold call over 150 contractors.

Can make very good money
Inside phone sales (Former Employee) –  Lenexa, KSFebruary 12, 2019
Well organized fun place to work. Committed to mission of signing up contractors to Home Advisor membership. Has a saying that a sale a day = 100K.

Different quality of sales managers, they are typically pretty good at supporting you, since their paycheck is based upon team sales. Must be a quality salesman, completely telephone sales to contractors. Company will fire quality salesmen for little reason, lack of production. Has a low hourly wage plus excellent bonus potential. They regulate overtime hours.

High pressure, company reputation makes it hard to sell
Sales Consultant (Current Employee) –  Golden, COFebruary 6, 2019
Overall, it seems the rich just get richer here, and everyone else fights for scraps. If you don't do well, the pressure gets turned way up. When the job goes well, you can make a great paycheck. But it does seem like the people that end up doing well long-term get lucky at first and establish themselves as "closers," but none of these closers are saying or doing anything particularly magical. It seems the top producers get set up with a lot of lay-down closes.
Pros
great benefits

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.
