Forest Lawn Memorial-Park Association – Why Work For Us?


undefined

Since 1906, more families have chosen to come to us for their funeral and cremation needs than any other provider in Southern California.  The reason is simple.  We provide a more personal type of attention, a more professional level of service, and a wider range of price options.  Give us a call or drop by at any time and we’d be happy to show you how a little bit of planning can make a big difference.

Our Credo

At Forest Lawn, caring service is our reason for being. We pledge to provide the highest standards of ethical and personal service as well as the finest facilities for our guests and visitors. Our “Spirit of Service” anticipates the needs of those in sorrow and exceeds the expectations of all who enter our gates.

We are seeking dedicated and caring sales representatives to join our Advance Planning team.  Serving all faiths and cultures, our Planning Advisors reach out and develop relationships with families in their communities, and explain to them the many advantages of paying for their funeral, cremation, or cemetery costs in advance.

Planning Advisors are provided with sixteen paid weeks of classroom and field training, superior administrative and management support, results-oriented marketing programs, and a range of events for generating leads and building relationships.

undefinedEstablished in 1906, Forest Lawn has grown to cover all of Southern California including six locations Glendale, Hollywood Hills, Cypress, Covina Hills, Long Beach, and Cathedral City. Since our founding, Forest Lawn has committed itself to providing outstanding service and beautiful environments for family outings, remembering loved ones, and commemorating holidays. Our locations serve all faiths and cultures, and offer a wide range of celebrations and special events.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Forest Lawn Memorial-Park Association (Cypress, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The best interview I have ever had! The advanced planning regional manager conducted the interview and I found him to be insightful, inspirational, personable, and ethical. He would be a great person to work for.
