    Pros

    A Beautiful Funeral Home and Cemetery

    Cons

    The Sales Managers are on commission as well and have to feed their families, so you will be on the back burner to get a sale. Training is hope you catch on type of method!! NO One is available to answer your questions! They are too busy for you!! It could take months before you start making an income to pay the bills. You will not get straight answers during the Interview

    Advice to Management

    Be Ethical and Honest with potential employee interviewers ! YOUR Reputation is at stake! Dallas is large but small and we all know a lot of people Treat each person how you would want your family member treated at work and during an interview. Be Professional!

    I have been working at Restland Funeral Home and Cemetery full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I think Restland is a pretty good funeral home and has a great historical cemetery. Compensation for sales has high potential. Management and staff really cares about customers.

    Cons

    Making sales is hard. No one wants to pay for funerals and cemetery plots even though everyone will need some services at some time. Very difficult to make a living.

    Advice to Management

    Pass out leads more evenly. There is no work life balance and you are expected to work six or seven days a week, every week.

    It was a very satisfying sale knowing you were helping a family in a time of need

    Cons

    There is no good middle management to help the sales counselors.
