    Interview

    On the interview I was extremely impressed with the layout of the place. I was interview at a location in New Orleans, and the people were very friendly. This was the first part of it. Now that I have been assured the job, I am expecting to enter into training where I will learn the skills to make sales.

    FSC Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Dignity Memorial (Oklahoma City, OK) in March 2014.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of several things being said about the position that just didn't turn out to be true. There also turned out to be just as many omissions about the position, compensation, and schedule. The interview was more them selling the position than it was asking questions. Second interview basically the same but another higher up representative of the company sat in and backed up everything said in the first interview. After being told they intended to hire me it took over 8 weeks for the paperwork to be processed, and I was told to come in twice only to be turned away because of paperwork.

    Interview

    Lies. Fake tears to make you think they actually cared about helping people. Misrepresented pay structure. As I look back this entire experience was an education. Life is not the bottom line$. It is sad to think/know that there are people out there that would so blatantly play on others emotions. Very sad. I learned exactly what kind of person that I would never want myself or my children to be.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Dignity Memorial (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Very slow hiring process. they were reluctant to answer how many people made over a certain figure. I kept being told my questions would be answered in training. I should have seen it as a red flag, but like everyone else I met, they needed a job Management doesnt want people to know how few people are successful.

    Interview

    The Hiring and interview process went very relaxed and casual. I was interviewed by a sales manager who had been in Family Service for a number of years. Even though there is a strong emphasis on meeting sales goals, caring and serving families concerning this difficult time/topic is highly valued.

    Interview Questions

    • I was simply myself; I brought to the table who I was and deeply held values - just the idea of working at a cemetery / funeral home was, at first, quite a hurdle! ;-)   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Dignity Memorial (Dallas, TX) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Job Fair > Interview > Job Offer Individual at job fair was very persuasive. The actual interview went very well, but I did ask him one question I was curious about. "Why are you trying to sell me this job?". It didn't make sense. With all the numbers he was throwing at me. In a cautious move I am not turning them down yet. However, I am not liking what I am seeing on this site!
