I have been working at Dignity Memorial full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Employees work hard and most are very nice and professional

Cons

Horrible organization and processes. The Family Services and Community Counselors income are based on commissions but they are so administratively overwhelmed and dragged down with busy work that other departments have not finished (but the sales team need completed in order to do their job, that it leaves them little if any time to reach out to perspective new clients...translation....working for basically no pay or just the guaranteed minimum wage. In the Seattle market only a minority of the sales staff are making quota to reach a livable wage. Very sad.

Advice to Management

Put your sales staff on salary with bonus incentives. If they are having to spend 70% of their time working on tasks that do not lead to the currently set up commission structure is it any wonder that SCI has such high turnover. You could be so much better and in the long run more productive.

    Sales agents required to work under extreme pressure, Funeral Directors rarely recieve pay raises, Maintenance & Drivers treated like second class citizens.

    Value your ALL of your employees & SHARE some of the profits by giving bonuses & Holiday gifts to people other than sales!
