    Pros

    Amazing management that’s always willing to teach and train. Coworkers are easily the most friendly. Company does what it can to remind you that you are valued

    Cons

    A bonus isn’t offered at the staff level. Really no other cons

    Advice to Management

    I worked at SCI for 3 years. This is one of the best places I’ve ever worked in. The financial reporting department is filled with the most intelligent and kind people you will ever encounter. You will learn a great deal and become and amazing accountant by working for the current management in FR.
    As far as management in financial reporting, my advice is CHANGE NOTHING! It’s been a great opportunity to have worked there. And I’m only leaving because I found a opportunity that’s closer to home, and a job was literally tailored to my wants.

    Pros

    Anyone who wants to work hard and succeed will be given the chance to do so with this company in the realm of sales. If you want an easy job with gaurenteed pay, then SCI sales probably won’t be a good fit, neither would any other sales job. If you want a challenging and rewarding career where you can indeed make six figures in about 12 months IF you follow the plans laid out before you on how to do the job and do it successfully, then SCI is a great company to start your career with. The commission structure is indeed aggressive, but if you can sell, and do it consistently than it pays out very very well to those who are willing to do what it takes. SCI gives great benefits( health and 401k) and even discounts on arrangements when the need for their services arises in your family. Because it will happen to all of us one day. I started in an entry level sales job and I can say that with dedication and hard work you can very well make a rewarding career working with SCI. If you read bad reviews about the sales jobs, those were most likely people who would have failed at any job they attempted. It’s not that SCI is a bad company, some people just don’t have what it takes to win and they give up when the times get a little tough. Salesforce is very mainstream with this company, the support you receive for it is outstanding ! Also if you are a top producer, there will always be luxurious trips and vacations you will be attending as well as advanced sales training with the best of the best in this company !

    Cons

    Too much paperwork for serving a client family. It is difficult to train new hires sometimes with all of the paperwork that must be completed.

    Advice to Management

    We appreciate all that you do to support us !

    I worked at Service Corporation International part-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good pay for position, great benefits if you become full time. 401k matching is wonderful.

    Cons

    Aside from the type of business you are in dealing with customers who have just lost loved ones, wearing a dark-colored suit in all weather can sometimes be incredibly uncomfortable (think the heat of summer.)
