    Senior Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Golden, CO
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HomeAdvisor (Golden, CO) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online. A recruiter contacted me within a few days. A couple of days after that, I had a call with the hiring manager. Less than a week after that, I was brought onsite for 2.5 hours. For some candidates a phone screen/coding portion is done in advance, but I opted to directly visit the office. The interview process is comparatively short: ~1 hour of coding, 45 minutes or so of OO design, and 45 minutes of team/culture fit. You really get to see the people you might be working with and get a feel for them.

    Contrary to bigger tech companies, HomeAdvisor has a quick decision rate and I was offered the job immediately after my interview. Having that immediate feedback definitely takes an emotional load off, but be prepared to decline or accept within a few days at most.

    The office itself is very positive and everyone I interacted with was pleasant. The recruiter was very attentive and addressed all my needs. I can highly recommend that anyone interview here - I accepted a position elsewhere.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic coding/unit test session, OO design, team culture fit session. If you know how to competently code and debug mistakes you will have no problems.   Answer Question

    Operations Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at HomeAdvisor (Dallas, TX) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The recruiter was late for the call and it felt cold and detached. The job description wasn't as clear as it should have been; otherwise, I would have been more prepared to answer the questions. To be fair, my expertise was working with upper management, not Human Resources so I lacked expertise in that area. But she did follow up as promised on the results of the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe what kind of things you would look for in data that would be important to HR and Sales.   Answer Question

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. I 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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at HomeAdvisor in January 2018.

    Interview

    Standard interview. Asked about my background and why I was looking for a new job. Then she gave a brief on the company. However they never let me know whether i got the job or not. After 5 days I assumed I didn't. I emailed the lady who initially reached out to me but I still have yet to hear anything.

    They contact you super fast and have an answer for you super fast. First is a phone call, then an interview with HR people, managers and directors. They ask you general questions but they aren't looking for a ton of experience or knowledge, they are screening for the best personalities.
