    "Great company to get started in sales"

    5.0
    Former Employee - Online Sales Consultant in Indianapolis, IN

    I worked at HomeAdvisor full-time

    Pros

    Very legitimate sales cycle, closing experience which is a great place to get your foot in the door in a field where experience is everything

    Cons

    High dial volume & rejection add up, the commission structure makes it all worth it though.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at HomeAdvisor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Getting to work from home because of COVID, excellent health benefits and are affordable, the managers I know are all incredibly helpful. If you put in the effort, they will bend over backwards to try to help you achieve your goals.

    Cons

    Dealing with lame coworkers who just want to whine and complain because they arent good at their job. This job isnt easy, but its not the hardest. Working at Mcdonalds requires more BS than working here. If you actually try and meet daily goals youre golden. In an 8 hour shift we need to have at least 3 hours of talk time. Thats like 20-25 mins an hour. Its not that hard... Not to mention they offer a leadership development program every single quarter, so there is always chances to advance
