    I worked at Service Corporation International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get to meet different people and help

    Cons

    You are a commission employee. You are expected to take on at-need families who just experienced a death, and follow up with them. Most people don't want to pay thousands of dollars to prepay for their own service, after they have already paid thousands for their family member. It makes sense to do so, but people want instant gratification.

    Advice to Management

    none

    Pros

    This company is great, gives you opportunities to grow and better yourself as an employee. I've met some employees that have started of as temporary and are now managers or even higher. We also have paid time off, vacations, sick days, 401K, life insurance, and they offer you medical insurance. Recognition is given when earned and every now and then are sometimes included in the incentives usually offered to sales associates

    Cons

    Like any other company its has some downsides but we as a company are working in making everything better and growing with our input.

    Advice to Management

    Keep taking what we say into account-Love that!
