    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Homejoy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    +Free Lunch, +Great Coworkers/Friends, sense of involvement from CEO, Monthly Meetings with CEO, Mandatory Cleaning Test (I thought this was very valuable to understand the product), Smart Bright Group of People.

    Cons

    Pay for Client Service Rep started at $15/hr, unattractive work hours (5am - East Coast Time, to reconcile for New York Customers) Disorganized, made poor decisions to allocate less $$ to Cilent Experiences and then it went downhill. Scaled too much to quickly without perfecting product.

    Advice to Management

    I truly enjoyed working with Adora and Aaron, I know they had great intentions and I would work for them again in a heartbeat. I'm sure they learned a lot from Homejoy and will take it to heart in the future.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Homejoy (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online, and they got back to me with an interview to be conducted over the phone. The interview was only for HR/recruiting -- it was not a coding interview, and they asked no technical questions. They got back to me later saying that they chose to move forward with other candidates.
