Pros

Can write your own paycheck is you can keep your manager or other sales rep. from stealing your customers from underneath you.
It is true the best sales people do not necessitate being the best managers.

Cons

Use of threats as motivation coming from VP down to local level management.
Team work is non-existent. Encourage pushy sales and praying on the grief of the families, use of guilt and shame are common techniques. If you are willing to put aside integrity and ethics it would be a great place to work. New acquisitions only concern, not supporting staffing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn management techniques. Remember that people have lives away from work, its not about working 7 days a week,
Advise to board of directors: reinvest in what you already have, the administrative staff, grounds staff, grounds maintenance, fairer commissions.

    Pros

    It is great being able to help those through the grieving process. Most of the staff is pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Impossible making sales when the manager doesn't rotate the sales in a fair manner. They were not upfront about the expectations, in which, those seem to change from day to day. There is no "open door" policy, as others who have complained about this cemetary have been fired. There is so much discourse and mania in this office it makes it impossible to fulfill planned tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need to hire more competant management

    I worked at StoneMor

    Pros

    1. Benefits are on par with others and the company absorbed most of the cost
    2. They are very family oriented. During the economic crash, they initiated a fair furlough rather than lay one person off.
    3. Depending on your department, there are opportunities for advancement.
    4. Most management genuinely care about their employees and offer lots of feedback

    Cons

    1. Pay is below for the same job at other companies
    2. Only salaried employees are entitled to yearly bonus, not hourly employees
    3. Depending on the department, there is definite preferential treatment, where employees who are tenured but not qualified receive promotions over those who are qualified.
    4. Lots of back stabbing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rather than continue to purchase properties, you should reward your employees with more than a 3% raise after a 3 year salary freeze and furlough.
