    I have been working at Service Corporation International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great management starting from the top down in my division (Hispana). They not only care about servicing the family before, during and after the services but do it with dignity, honesty and respect. I've been in this industry for over 20 years and wish I would have been with them the full duration.

    The other members of management staff, Office Manager, Location Manager, Grounds Superintendent and General Manger are all wonderful individuals that have been with the company for many years. We also have the most caring and experienced Market Director to make it all possible. I'm proud to be part of such a great team. I believe our division and location to be one of SCI's top!

    Cons

    The only con I can think of off hand is that I wish the 401k contribution from the company was a little higher. They match up to 2.25% but I guess I should be thankful they even have 401k because a lot of companies don't.

    Since I manage the Family Service Department I found it disturbing and sad when I read the negative reviews. It sounds like the different divisions are run differently because the division I'm in would never accept the behavior I've read about.

    Now it is true that the pay may be low for some individuals working in the family service department. They pay on performance and if you are a low producer you may not earn much more than minimum wage however, high producers can earn $100k, $150k, $200k and higher. You get out what you put into it. If you treat the families you service like they are your own family you can be very successful in this position.

    Recruiter Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Service Corporation International.

    Interview Details

    Received a call for a face to face interview and was told to reply to the email interview confirmation. Replied right away and asked the recruiter a question as well. For 3 days straight, I followed up on the email since I never received a reply. I came to the conclusion that I would not want to work for a company that couldn't respond to a simple email. I work in recruiting and find this unacceptable. Communication is key. I finally sent them an email informing them that I was declining the interview. I received an email right away confirming my cancelation. Very bad candidate experience.
