    Interview

    My interview was odd, to say the least. You interview with a hiring manager and then your potential sales manager immediately after. The first part was pretty normal, but the second half was spent with the sales manager telling me I was not qualified for the position. Strange, since the hiring manager said I was a great fit.

    It's basically them rejecting you, as you'll get rejected on the phones, and pitching why you're a solid candidate. It was a very uncomfortable and odd way to do an interview.

    Very positive and thorough.
    They answered all questions and follow up email for face to face interview was very detailed.
    Hopefully the face to face interview goes as well as phone interview!

    Inside Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Spring Hill, KS

    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at HomeAdvisor (Spring Hill, KS) in December 2016.

    Interview

    There was an initial phone interview that lasted about 10-15 minutes. During this interview, an in-person interview was scheduled. The same HR person spoke to me first in a very messy conference room, followed by a gentleman who was either a lead or a manager. I thought both interviews went well. The second person left the room to go get a third person but came back and said he was not available because he was talking to someone else. I was very politely escorted to the door and told that within 24 hours I would be told whether it was a "yes" or a "no". After two more days went by and I hadn't heard anything, I tried to call the HR woman back but realized there was no phone number in her auto signature on her email. I tried calling their main phone number and ended up getting transferred to the HE Manager's voice mail where I left a message and asked for either a call back or an email to let me know if I was still in the running or not. I waited about three more days and then tried emailing the HR person with whom I had interviewed. I still got no reply. I don't think I have ever been treated in such an unprofessional manner by any other company I've interviewed with.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HomeAdvisor (Denver, CO) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Was contacted via job search engine and set an appointment to do an initial phone interview but HR person never followed through nor did she send an email to apologize/reschedule. Bad first impression. Perhaps the company is too busy playing shuffleboard.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at HomeAdvisor (Golden, CO) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Very laid back, informative. Looking for people who are motivated by money cause there is a lot of opportunity for it. You will need to work hard to succeed within the company, but the provide you the tools to do so. I had a phone interview that went well, was asked to come on campus the next day for an in-person, and received an offer by the end of the interview. You will likely first interview with HR, they will ask you typical interview questions, then you will likely speak with your specific manager who is more concerned about your fit within the team and your competitiveness.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at HomeAdvisor (Denver, CO) in September 2016.

    Interview

    First you set up an interview that lasts about 45 minutes. Then I had an in-person interview that was about 30-40 minutes as well. The phone interview was pretty easy and it was with HR but they asked some typical interview questions such as "describe a time when you faced a challenge", but it was pretty straightforward. Then you go to the in-person interview where they give you a tour of the office and ask you different things. They didn't really go over my resume that much with me, but instead jumped right into questions about performance in the office and getting me to prove that I would be competitive in the office.
