    Pros

    None!!!! None!!! None!!! None!!! None!!!

    Cons

    This company will always be hiring, because they have no intention of keeping staff!
    Very short training period one week, with one week force to call people out of the telephone book
    to get them to purchase a burial plot. A low wage of 300.00 per week is offered during the training period
    Promise of high commission...then they do everything possible to not give it to you.
    Managers steal commissions from sales reps....
    Slavery would be the best way to descirbe this job I was expected to come to work and not get paid any money but I was required to work over 40 hrs... When my manager's boss found out this was corrected
    but my direct manager does this to all new employees.
    You are expected to work 6 to 7 days a weeking depending on your work location
    After your first two weeks of little to no training you are expected to sell at top levels with little product knowledge...product knowledge was not part of the training.
    Few empyloyees with more than two years of work history! Most quit or are fired within the first three months
    The basic mind set ,,,,, hire a lot of people maybe one out of a thousand will work out for a short period of time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better treatment of employees would result in higher sales and employee retention.... A lot of time is wasted hiring new employees

    Well, the company had just hired a new manager that had little experience, so it was hard learning the system.

    I worked at Midwest Memorial Group

    Pros

    Being able to help customers. This was a cemetery and you were often helping people making final arrangements for their loved ones on the worst day of their life. Very gratifying to help them through this prosess.

    Cons

    You were expected to work too many hours. Promised time off during the week when you worked on the week-end but it never worked out that way. Sprang unplanned "call nights" on us at 3:00 in the afternoon for that evening with no regard for other plans you might have made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more considerate of your employees. Treat them with respect.
