SCI is a company aimed at making lives better. The people who work for the company, especially those in the field (ie, funeral homes, cemeteries), are compassionate and provide good feedback on services provided. I didn't realize when I took the job with SCI that I would consistently receive good feedback from my peers and my internal customers (field associates). I also believe my ethics are upheld by this corporation, not only through the company's core values, but through our practice and messaging.
Communication within the company could be improved (ie, structure, resources, etc). I am still a bit confused as to how the field (ie, funeral homes, cemeteries) is structured. The intranet is useful but difficult to use. I don't use most of the links and applications within the intranet because they are not described well on their landing pages and/or I don't know where to find what I am looking for.
Advice to Management
Communicate how the company is structured and what resources are available internally to new hires. Create a guide to the company's intranet that is easily found on the intranet's homepage. Rename markets to better reflect the geographic regions they represent. The arbitrary names are difficult to discern to corporate associates or associates in other markets in other states.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Service Corporation International.
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.
