    I have been working at HomeAdvisor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay, schedule, environment, culture, management, annual zoo outing, center lunches, free soda, great health benefits, energy, free coffee, in office store, pool table, ping pong table, gym, keg/happy hour....Just to name a few.
    When I started working at HomeAdvisor I had no idea what to expect. What I found was a company who cared about and appreciated it's employees. I had fun at work. I felt like I was important and making a difference. It's a company that gives back what you give and more. HomeAdvisor has made an impact on my life in so many wonderful ways and taking a chance to work there was the best decision I have ever made.

    Cons

    When I say there are no cons, I mean it. This place is everything you will never find anywhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Keep putting people first and making a difference!

    I have been working at HomeAdvisor full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I love it here. I am always excited to come to work every morning and meet my goals. The managers give you all the tools you need to succeed. It’s up to you to use them. I have a feeling that all the negative reviews are written by people who expect to just show up and collect a paycheck without putting in any work. Yes you have to actually try here. That’s the whole point of a job. I love that I am compensated for my hard work and achievements. UNCAPPED COMISSION!!! If you can take direction and do exactly the managers tell you to, you will be successful.

    Cons

    Cold calling can be repetitive and draining at times

    Advice to Management

    The commission structure is confusing.

    Pros

    You can make some decent money if you leave your morals at the door or drink the Kool Aid and pretend it’s the best thing any business could have. When you’re good at it you will get inbound calls. Now it’s harder but possible to make $8k Or more in two weeks.

    Cons

    Outbound calls 200 to 400 a day and a 4 page script will have you convinced that it’s a good product but as the customers and reviews will tell you, it’s not the best way to help your fellow man. If you don’t have any other trade and don’t mind the boiler room with loud teens and music. It’s an ok JOB, but never certain. Every 2 weeks you are campaigning to keep your desk.
    We all have a little evil in us to do what needs to be done. Sorry I like to eat and it’s a pirate ship here.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are genuine pimps. Pimping everyone from
    customers to employees. You got my respect because I know you got the money to harm me. I respectfully thank you for the opportunity to transfer and train.

    nice office, relaxed and fun

    Pros

    Great Base Salary
    Uncapped Commission Structure (Paid Bi-Weekly)
    Relaxed and Fun Environment
    Effective and Sincere Management Personnel
    Effective & Safe HR Environment
    Opportunities for Advancement

    Cons

    You must meet very strict sales goals to graduate from training, and then you must meet goals bi-weekly to keep your job once you graduate from training. If you like cold calling pre-screened list of businesses and you like fast pace sales with one call closing cycles and unlimited commission earning potential then you will love this job. But if you are looking to skate by and collect the base, do not even try it will not happen. You have to perform to get all the perks that they give you at HomeAdvisor.

    Advice to Management

    None. You guys are awesome. Specifically Tiffany B. and Kyle S., you guys are the best management superiors I had ever worked for in my life. Thank you guys for being so helpful and accommodating. Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Work culture is all you could ask for... everyone is always supporting each other which is awesome. Everyone is like a family. There's also catered lunches and weekly happy hours. We're moving to the Merchandise Mart as well.
    - Lots of bonuses/rewards/spiffs
    - $$$$$$ UNCAPPED COMMISSION. If you know what you are doing and have that strong work ethic/positive mental attitude it is almost a guarantee that you will make over 100K in your first year. People have even made 200/300K. $$$$$$ $$$$$ $$$$$
    - Leadership development program will train you for management positions
    - The sales trainer is intense but will get you where you need to be

    Cons

    You need to be open to criticism. "Sales aint for everyone"

    Advice to Management

    We love you guys, keep it up
