    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Service Corporation International (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Since I began my career at a different office in the same company 23 years ago, My interview when I came to Georgia was very short. They already knew of my experience and let me know what my job duties would entail. We talked about my starting hourly wage and all I would have to do was learn the basic duties at this new office. We settled on an hourly wage and I reported to work that following week.

    Interview Questions

    • Some of the questions were what days of the week I would like to work, it was a 40 hour a week job. They asked how comfortable I was with learning different tasks particular to this new office and could I work some weekends.   Answer Question

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Service Corporation International in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was referred by an agent recruiter to SCI. The interview process took about 2 weeks. The process started out with phone call with an Architect, followed by a face to face with the IT director and the Architect. They made decision to offer/reject decision quickly.

    Interview Questions

    • The phone call interview was much more technical than the face to face interview. The phone interview would ask question ranging from MVC, WCF, and Angular. In contrast, in the face to face round, the questions asked were to explain your experiences in great detail.   Answer Question

    Sales Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Service Corporation International (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Managers look for yes-men who they will be able to control like puppets. They like people who want to drink the corporate kool-aid and never challenge the status quo. Since no one in the company can make a decision for themselves you will likely interview with several people before being hired. No skills are necessary just a warm fuzzy feeling that you will work 50+ hours a week for peanuts and not complain.

    Sales Counselor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Virginia Beach, VA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Service Corporation International (Virginia Beach, VA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Two-part process. First interview was with the sales manager; second with general manager. They are looking for people to go door-to-door to sell memorials; cemetery plots. It sounded like it could be a good job but door to door selling is just not my thing. I don't have any problem cold calling just not comfortable actually knocking on people's door. There is also no real salary while in training -- basically minimum wage. Other companies are offering a generous training salary for seasoned professionals.
