    I worked at Service Corporation International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company had generous benefits, good pay scale, and good on the job training. The huge network of other funeral homes was convenient for ship ins and outs. Pay is much better than independent FHs. Set schedule (at least in the Memphis market) with generous time off and sick time.

    Cons

    The company applies a decent amount of pressure on directors to sell packages and lots of stuff not necessary for a basic funeral (which is rewarded fairly), the pricing makes it difficult to help families that are really struggling, often resulting in them going to other FHs. SCI likes a LOT of management, which results in micromanagement (too many chiefs, not enough indians).

    Advice to Management

    Have fewer managers in a market. Close on Sunday. If you offer an incentive program, don't pull the incentive right before the end of the program after several people have qualified.
