    The Most Unethical Company That I Have Ever Worked For

    Family Service Counsler (Former Employee)

    ProsNone!!!! None!!! None!!! None!!! None!!!

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Disappointing and very demanding of personal time, no respect for work-life balance

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBeing 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.

    ConsYou 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 Senior ManagementBe more considerate of your employees. Treat them with respect.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
