    Pros

    They will hire virtually anyone willing to work for minimum wage.

    Cons

    Ridiculously low pay; therefore they have a revolving door of inexperienced people who usually don't care about the industry or the families they're serving since they're just there for a minimum wage paycheck. All the management I worked with were completely out of touch with the community, the competition, the families served and the employees -- and happy to be so. They get rid of anyone who cares enough to object to their debilitating policies and procedures. They took our beautiful cluster of funeral homes in South Florida which were the gold standard nationwide, with an unblemished reputation, and pretty much ruined them. Their answer to anything is to raise prices. Service is very poor. They treat both employees and families with the same disregard. There was not an employee there who didn't come to bitterly regret the takeover of Alderwoods by SCI. Not a good place for true funeral professionals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a backbone and fight for your employees and the families you are serving.

    I worked at Service Corporation International part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get loaded with hours

    Cons

    You are not guaranteed time off, even for school. The pay is ok as an apprentice, but not for any other position, there are so many catty managers, many of the management through the district-regional levels do not understand a single thing about the funeral world. They just have business degrees and that's it. The amount of paperwork is unbelievable and repetitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut down on the paperwork, pay better, and get management in there that knows something about the business.
