    I have been working at NorthStar Memorial Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    NorthStar Memorial Group is a great and growing company to work for. A company that cares for the welfare of their staff and rewards them well when earned. It is a great privilege to be able to help assist families after a loss of a loved one and to educate and prepare the living for the future. I am truly grateful to have been given an opportunity to work for NorthStar Memorial Group.

    Cons

    Serving families at one of their worst times in their life may be overwhelming at times. It takes a unique and strong person to be able to overcome these obstacles. If you are not passionate and honest about helping other's in need and not willing to go above and beyond outside your comfort level, NorthStar may not be the right fit for you.

    Advice to Management

    Sales Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NorthStar Memorial Group (Oakland, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by the Sales Manager, introduced to the Facility Manager. Sophomoric interview, easy to ace. Sales Manager proceeded to take three weeks on bring me on board after notifying me I had the job. NOTE: I chose $24K as a number for salary because the form required a number but pay was a draw against commission; there was no salary.

    Interview Questions

    • The Sales Manager focused on the objective of generating sales for a product (burial spaces) that had dwindling sales in certain demographics, and the importance of using one’s social groups to generate sales, e.g., church, your own ethnic group connections.   1 Answer
