    Pros

    Great opportunity to help customers and earn a strong income.

    Cons

    The mid-level management style is picky and non-motivational; same old message 2 to 3 times a week for the past. 9 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It has been said that a fish stinks from the head down. If the body of the fish isn't swimming then the head isn't functioning. Look at the almost complete turnover of your staff every. 2 to 3 years and ask yourself why you're retaining the same management above the field location level for. 9 years.

    I worked at StoneMor full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Received adequate training for the grounds position. The work was fairly structured with good support from the superintendent. I enjoyed the autonomy to perform my duties in a manner that benefited myself and the organization.

    Cons

    It was hard to change the minds of upper management when an idea for improvement presented itself. Working hands-on and listening to our families, we could have adjusted our policies to better fit the staff and the people we service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the ideas of the people who work in the day-to-day sector. Some thoughts are worth pursuing.

    Pros

    Upstanding company policy offsets sometimes shady practices by individual employees. "Family Service Counselors"---read: Salesman. Minimum wage plus commission. It works if you work it. Decent products that genuinely please people. Full disclosure seldom.

    Cons

    Not many married people in the bus. Long hours; weekends. Relocate to advance.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Levittown, PA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Levittown, PA

    I worked at StoneMor

    Pros

    1. Benefits are on par with others and the company absorbed most of the cost
    2. They are very family oriented. During the economic crash, they initiated a fair furlough rather than lay one person off.
    3. Depending on your department, there are opportunities for advancement.
    4. Most management genuinely care about their employees and offer lots of feedback

    Cons

    1. Pay is below for the same job at other companies
    2. Only salaried employees are entitled to yearly bonus, not hourly employees
    3. Depending on the department, there is definite preferential treatment, where employees who are tenured but not qualified receive promotions over those who are qualified.
    4. Lots of back stabbing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rather than continue to purchase properties, you should reward your employees with more than a 3% raise after a 3 year salary freeze and furlough.
