    Desktop Support Analyst Interview

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Angie's List in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I received the initial call for an interview after applying for the position three separate times. When going in for the interview it was very laid back, not stressful. The interview was with 3 other members of the department where I was interviewing for, everyone was in casual wear and not aggressive. Probably one of the best hiring experiences I have had. A lot of the questions they ask pertain to the field your looking to go into but some questions they just throw in for fun to see how you would answer.

    Member Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Indianapolis, IN
    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Angie's List in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had an online app via an employee referral and knew someone who enjoyed working here, I followed up that week and got a hold of the recruiter (who I found through LinkedIn) who reached out to me later that week for an impromptu phone screen interview. After the phone interview we set up an in person interview with a manager for a week later at the offices. Everyone was super nice/helpful/excited to be there. Very youthful environment. I took a typing test and verified I could type over 40 wpm and we continued on with our interview. It was more of a conversation than it was a question answer. She explained how the process works, how the company works, large focus on payment. Pretty basic understanding of a job. They told me they'd contact me the next week about the position.

    Reasons for Declining

    Angie's List sounds like an enjoyable/easyish job but I just didn't understand the value of the product.

    Member Care Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Indianapolis, IN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Angie's List in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    First it was a phone interview, in which they just ask what you know about the company. Then if that went well, they would schedule a in house interview at their corporate office where they give you a tour of the offices. Then came the actual interview with an Assistant Manager of which ever department you are applying for. It seems to take such a long time to hear anything back once the interview is done, so keep calling to keep your name fresh in the minds of the manager.

    Big Deal Sales Representatdes Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Indianapolis, IN
    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Angie's List.

    Interview Details

    I do not have a college degree. I felt completely degraded by my interviewer when he asked me if I knew how to use a computer. He also asked me how my current job is "sales". My resume states my current job is a commission based sales position. My previous employment was a position in the computer graphics field. He continued to ask me these same 2 questions multiple times. Very disrespectful. If your company doesn't hire someone without a college background, please don't offer them an interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Was asked to do a mock telephone cold-call. The interviewer challenged everything I said. I would prefer, at the very lease, to have been given stipulations or mock descriptions of what the intended mock call was for.   View Answer

    Advertising Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Indianapolis, IN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Angie's List in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. I had an employee referral. I had one interview with the head of advertising sales training and a sales manager. The interview was the shortest I had ever had, less than 20 minutes. They very much play "good cop/bad cop" in the interview. They don't want to know anything about you, just your sales experience and your sales process. They now require a personality/assessment test at the time of application, but this was implemented after I was hired, so I cannot comment on it.

    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. You either accept their payment plan or you do not accept the job.

    Interview Details

    HR needs to tighten up - i interviewed with a executive management and the recruiter wrote to me the day after interview and asked "did you come for the interview"!!!
    Very slow in getting across updates from hiring manager, information was mostly incomplete. If I didn't feel good about the hiring manager I'd wouldn't have accepted the offer.

    Negotiation Details
    Prompt mainly due to the pro activeness of the hiring manager.

    Copywriter Interview

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Angie's List in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    My first contact was with the HR department for a phone interview. It was professionally handled, brief, and the questions were straightforward, such as what is your favorite kind of writing. After I passed that hurdle, I had to do a writing assessment, writing ad copy from scratch, improving poorly written copy, and finding errors in a passage of text with mistakes in it. After I passed that, I was brought on-site for an in-person interview with the hiring manager.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked what I thought of the writing assessment. The manager seemed to be trying to deduce whether I had enjoyed it.   View Answer
