    Pros

    Large company with alot of affiliates, good benefits, paid vacation for seasoned Sales Agents.

    Cons

    Sales agents required to work under extreme pressure, Funeral Directors rarely recieve pay raises, Maintenance & Drivers treated like second class citizens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your ALL of your employees & SHARE some of the profits by giving bonuses & Holiday gifts to people other than sales!

    Pros

    You can make a lot of money.($100,000 +)

    Safe working conditions

    Cons

    If you are good at what you do, you are paid straight comission. No hourly pay. Well, about 60% of your job is made up of non-money making tasks. Furthermore, there are "sell-a-thon's" when you are expected to work late every night for a week. Again, unless you are horrible at selling and only getting your $7.25 hour base, you get no extra pay.

    Life/Work balance does not exist with this company, unless you put your foot down. And then, you are seen as someone with a "bad attitude".

    As other reviewers have stated, people with true sales talent quit in a short period of time. Others who lack sales skills are poorly trained and starve the first 6 months on the job, if they make it that long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is aware of any advice I'd give. It wouldn't do any good. They don't care.
