    A day in the life of HomeAdvisor's homegrown sales team

    Every morning, the HomeAdvisor sales team huddles together with coffee in hand to discuss the previous day's performance and the new day's goals. After a quick game or exercise to get the mental juices flowing, the team hits the phones, as sales consultant Kevin Jackson puts it, "smiling and dialing until lunch."

  • Out of 43 teams, our 10 reps on Team HomeAdvisor made the second fastest pull of the day, pulling the 24 ton jet 15 feet in only 7.10 seconds! The Pulling For Wishes event raised over $430k for Indiana children with terminal illnesses.

We believe that “Love What You Do" is not just a motivational saying—it’s a career choice. When you choose the right company that aligns with your values, add incredible benefits with awesome colleagues, then you begin to really love what you do!

 

Tribal Culture

There is a collective sense of pride in the work that we do, and this is something that we promote through a fun, energetic work environment. We go above and beyond to put on all kinds of employee appreciation events that keep everyone laughing and enjoying their time at work, as well as offering amazing benefits to keep a great work-life balance. This creates a company comprised of diverse people who respect one another and want everyone in the organization to succeed.

 

A Winning Mindset

If you poll any of the employees at HomeAdvisor, they will NOT say their work is easy, but it is definitely worth the rewards. If you are willing to work hard, we make it easy for you to play hard. Work hard and you could be rewarded with trips to tropical islands, cash prizes, and the opportunity for a 6-figure income.  Plus, enjoy the day-to-day perks, including weekly happy hours, food trucks & social events. Not to mention Summerfest, our annual party that puts the traditional company picnic to shame. Redefining the benchmark of success requires hard work and sometimes long hours. We purposely design our workforce with people who have a winning mindset and reward them for it.

 

Our Work is Personal

Our people understand the power of human connection. We thrive on building meaningful relationships with others and enjoy helping people in the process. Everything we do at HomeAdvisor is personal. Every conversation is tailored to the individual. Ultimately, our job is to connect valued contractors with the homeowners who need them, and we understand that many of our contractor's livelihoods depend on our service.

 

Real People Making a Real Impact

At HomeAdvisor, our employees have the opportunity to contribute ideas and know their ideas will be listened to and valued.  Our teams don’t just succeed with what they are given, but are constantly pursuing new and better ideas and practices. We have a reputation for implementing employees' ideas that have a ripple effect from within our organization to create a positive impact in the community.

You’ll also find a focus on health and wellness and a strong sense of pride and connection with your colleagues.

IN OUR COMMUNITY

In addition to offering employees one paid day off to volunteer for the non-profit of our choice, HomeAdvisor holds several events and charitable drives each year to benefit community organizations. Our parent company, IAC, will also match any donations up to $5000 and double the impact for your favorite charity.

    I have been working at HomeAdvisor full-time

    Pros

    Leadership is the strongest it has ever been! They finally get it. They treat us like adults, and expect us to uphold our end of the bargain and work hard to get paid HUGE COMMISSIONS!
    People ~ Fun/High Energy ~ Comp Structure (100K real potential as a sales consultant) ~ Growing opportunities to move up or within.
    Working with HomeAdvisor has been some of the best years in my sales career. You have a training program that establishes a great foundation for you. Management is some of the best I've ever worked with. They never hesitate to jump on the phones and show you how it's done. Your Directors are up and down the rows high fiving and talking with everyone, even coaching you if needed. I've never felt so excited about the direction of the company, the culture is awesome, and can't say enough about the leadership always going above and beyond to find ways to reengage us with uplifting meetings, words of encouragement, contests, cash spiffs, awards, trophies... the list goes on.
    Hats off to what you all have been able to do! Can't wait to see what's next and be an even bigger part of it as we dominate the industry.

    Cons

    Let's be honest... It's sales... it is a lot of work and a daily grind! Some people that cry around here about HA not being all it's cracked up to be seem to me to be the ones that really don't want to work for it and feel entitled to having an easier way to the top! Sales probably isn't a good fit for them here or anywhere!
    If you commit to working hard every day, and surround yourself with a good support system of people that want to succeed... you're Golden and are well on your way to making 6 figures with HomeAdvisor!

    Advice to Management

    Your energy is appreciated! Keep it up and we will own Angie soon enough!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HomeAdvisor.

    Interview

    The interview was easy. Then they give you some real time project to put together with not a lot of information even though it's document overload. A lot of work for a position I wasn't working and a position that only required a HS diploma. Eventually, the process took way to long with too many loopholes and I took another offer

    Interview Questions

    • Asked to compare and contrast 3 vendors for cubicles in an office space that was being renovated. The documents I was given seemed real time. Lots of information that wasn't super valuable was in the documents.   Answer Question
