    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at HomeAdvisor.

    Interview

    I always appreciate painless communication. I found the recruiting staff very easy to get in touch with, helpful and personable. They are not particularly quick with this process however. It was quite some time after I submitted my profile and received the request for a phone interview.

    Pretty straight forward interview. Nothing out of the ordinary or particularly challenging. They were pretty upfront with a salary range in early communication.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't think anything really stood out. Their is an excel test at some point in the process.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at HomeAdvisor (Golden, CO) in July 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very typical of a sales role. Started with a phone interview with HR. Then they brought me in for a 2 hour interview. First with HR, then with a sales manager, and if they both like you they will bring in a sales director. Interview was just sales experience questions, and getting to know you. Go in confident and sell yourself, otherwise they will not want you.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lakewood, CO

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at HomeAdvisor (Lakewood, CO) in June 2012.

    Interview

    The initial interview was with corporate recruiter of Servicemagic's Human Resources department. It was approximately 30 minutes long, basically going over my work history, familiarity with certain programs, experience with financial models and the way I handle certain scenarios.

    The second interview was with the director of financial planning & analysis. He described the needs of the department, and the work environment. He described everyone who worked in his department as very analytic and naturally curious.

    Prior to the third interview, I was sent an Excel aptitude test. I thought I was proficient, but I guess I relied too much on pivot tables. This was a test that tested not only your IF statements capabilities, but seeing if you could perform analysis and sorting without pivot tables.

    The third interview was Servicemagic. I met with the director of financial planning analysis (FP&A), a manager in FP&A, three financial analysts, and two vice presidents. The atmosphere on the FP&A department is a sea of dimly lit cubicles. It's very quiet. My interviews with the director of FP&A and the last vice president went poorly. The director really did a thorough job of examining whether or not I was as experienced in analysis as the department needed and gave me several verbal tests, including a probability test. I suck at probability, and I was already feeling down about the Excel test. The interviews in between went well. The vice president brushed me off from the beginning, despite my positive interactions with other members of FP&A.

    It took two weeks for servicemagic to get back to me about their decision to move forward with another candiate. It took approximately one month overall.

    The key to get this job is to be naturally curious and to be very strong at analysis. The environment is perfect for someone who can spend more than 10 hours per day in front of a computer screen, and one who is driven to be better than their peer, versus working in a team. I wasn't a big fan of the office, and am somewhat relieved that this was not my only employment opportunity. Check out everyone's finger nails during your interview. Everyone bites their nails down to a nub. I'm done with stressful environments like that.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at HomeAdvisor (Golden, CO) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Myriad questions regarding closing the sale and handling difficult prospects. Some time management questions. Ask a lot of questions about the compensation plan and your required quota. They change it periodically but when I left the required daily activity was 90 - 100 dials and/or 3 hours talk time.
    As I said get the hiring mgr to explain your commissions. It is somewhat complicated.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing difficult about the interviewing process. It was a bit drawn out. It's a cubeville job so expect the standard questions.   Answer Question
