    Pros

    Ability to work independantly and travel to different locations. I also enjoyed doing the reports due monthly, accounts payable and receivable. I enjoyed working with our customer base and being involved with the community. I enjoyed setting up events at our locations such as an annual Luminary Memorialization which helped support the Ronald McDonald House. The location was close to my home.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to manage many different Departments and work where a large corporation. It was difficult at times having a direct supervisor located within 100 miles of the facility.

    Advice to Management

    Always treat employees with respect. Sometimes you have to have faith in people and have higher expectations of them. You should offer an Education Benefit to promote advancement within the company.

    I worked at Stewart Enterprises full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This was a great company to work for. The management team was easy to work with and the rest of the Admin Team was very helpful.

    Cons

    In the Merchandise Coordinator position I felt that the lack of training and accountability on the part of the Sales Staff meant that any mistakes fell squarely on my shoulders.

    I also was pulling 10 hour days (while only being paid for 8 hours) due to increased work load. When I brought this to the attention of the management team I was told that I was not managing my time well. This was a fallacy. I had to be the sole person to back up two different departments along with constant interruptions. I also micro-managed myself to the point where I built myself a self-imposed schedule of tasks I needed to finish from day to day.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and offer suggestions rather than admonishments.

    It was busy work, and I love to stay busy.
