What’s the vibe like in the office?

This sales floor creates a fast-paced, energetic, and fun environment which motivates every single rep in the office to do better. The HomeAdvisor culture embodies a team environment where everyone supports and pushes each other to be strong salespeople.

Rachel

Sales Consultant

What are some things you learned at the company?

Since working at HomeAdvisor I have gained more self confidence. I've found myself stepping up as a leader and a role model on the sales floor, something that I wouldn’t have predicted if you had asked me about it two years ago. Now, I am comfortable with stepping up, taking control of a situation and taking initiative in the company's growth.
