    I worked at Carriage Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Best commissions in death care industry for sales counselors

    Cons

    no training staff or marketing support. All decisions made by location GM and your success depending on GM competence in sales ...and most don't have a clue!

    Advice to Management

    more marketing support for sales counselors
    train GM's on basic sales/ marketing fundamentals

    Management is dedicated to seeing all employees succeed in their role. There are opportunities to grow within the company of the long term. Fun and entrepreneurial atmosphere for employees.

    Some Senior Management tends to lead through fear rather than respect.

    I worked at Carriage Services full-time

    Pros

    Autonomy and somewhat competitive base wage.

    Cons

    No real bonus structure available.

    Advice to Management

    Implement bonus structure for the front line to reward increased revenues. Incentives for obtaining greater than average contracts would be appreciated.

    Pros

    If you are lucky enough to work with a good team, you will find a lot of company support and success.

    Cons

    There is a high expectation for performance - not a con but if you are not up to "being the best" you will find it hard to work here.
