Upper management to focus to just hiring to have bodies instead of hiring the right people.

    Pros

    Being able to help families in their time of need. The work itself is very rewarding. I didn't expect to get such a feeling of accomplishment from helping others.

    Cons

    Where do I start....A close relative of mine worked for this particular funeral home before the sold out to a corporation, so I grew up hearing them talk about how good of a place this used to be. When I first started with the company, I was truly excited to come to a place that had a reputation like this place did. Within six months to one year, I was no longer excited. Management only cares about numbers and making their bonuses. There is little to no room for advancement with this company. I have been here for over five years and have not received one raise. Most of my co-workers have not had raises in over 7 years. Since coming to work here, 27 employees have been terminated or transferred out of our market and 24 of those positions have not been filled. My work load has increased five fold and I work so much I can't get a second job without fear of losing this one. I depend heavily on my overtime pay, now that is about to be cut out and my pay will not be adjusted so that I won't be out any money. They have raised prices on the families we serve at least 2-3 yearly, on average. SCI (Dignity) doesn't care about the appearance or condition of their facilities. As long as the managers get their bonuses, everything is fine. I have two college degrees and I am paid what I was making 15 years ago at an entry level part-time position. Look elsewhere for employment. I never leave work happy due to the inter office drama that is constantly stirred up by management.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate your employees. After all, we are the ones that are out earning you your bonuses!
