    Great benefits, bonus system, and supportive staff. Working for a corporate funeral home allows us to be able to meet a families needs, provide top of the line vehicles, caskets, and technology while also working within their budget.

    Cons

    Corporations have higher expectations of sales quotas when compared to family owned funeral homes.

    Pros

    SCI offers a different work environment where you learn so much about many different things outside of your job title.

    Cons

    Sometimes, hours can be long and work can be very busy but is definitely worth it overall. You learn to work in a fast paced environment where timing means everything.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate should learn to appreciate the people in the field a little more.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Service Corporation International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This company offers great benefits, all the training you could ask for, a chain of command, relevance to the customer, professionalism, ethical, empathetic, fair and over all care about their employees. This is truly a place where you can make a difference in someone’s life.

    Cons

    Front line employees work long unscheduled hours due to deaths, pay is substandard for the professional license required, paperwork is overwhelming(but necessary), upper management could listen to their front line a little more since we are technically the ones bringing in the money, on boarding process is a little lengthy still but vastly improved over the last several years, benefits could be a little more flexible and adaptable and should fall inline with mandated government open enrollment.

    Advice to Management

    Being a publicly held company I understand the need for compliance and SOX, but a little more flexibility in overall processes would help.

    Benifits. The local management are great people to work with.

    The weather can sometimes get tough but they bought us proper outdoor work gear.

    Advice to Management

    Could pay a little more
     Without the Grounds people there wouldn't be any mone year made.
