Honorable profession. Helping people deal with their grief and loss of a loved one is fulfilling. Compensation plan needs serious overhaul. Especially for the work we do.

Same role
All the things we despise in a work environment. Bullying, harassment, relentless pressure to perform. Managers are past funeral directors with no management skills whatsoever.
Points positifs

Everybody will die but very few are willing to talk about it. Out of the few willing to talk about it, you need to get sales out of it. It's not an easy sales job where your product could sell by itself. A typical day consist of conference calls, weekly meeting, presentation, park tours and phone night.

I learned about the importance of pre-planning and how to become a top sales. The company have many different types of training. And to sell a difficult product such as funeral, you do need a lot of training.


The current management put a lot of stress on making phone calls, getting 2 appointments per day. A lot of time, you just can't get 2 appointments per day especially when you are new. If you can't get 2 appointments per day, you need to keep going back to the office to make phone calls. A lot of management stress. It's almost like a tele-marketing job.


The hardest part of the job is actually to make sales. For experience people, they have a large customer base and referral. But when you are brand new, it's extremely difficult. Lucky, they pay base salary to cover your basic. However, if you are not able to make sales, this position will become a minimum wage job. Depending on the months and your luck, even experience sales could end up zero sale for the month.


The most enjoyable part of the job is learning how to present funeral and cemetery to people. It's a difficult subject and it take a lot of skills to present and motivating people to buy.
Points positifs
Trainning, High Commission, Based Pay Protection
Points négatifs
Stress from management, Difficult to make sales, Need effort to meet new people daily

I had to wait 6 months to be paid.
Very poor IT support. 90's Laptops at the office for entering leads, appointment and processing sales. Have to buy your own electronic device to do your sale work. Lack of training: limited to memorize a script and reading of non updated documents. High pressure for sale to your family and friends. No support at all for regular expenses needed for pre-sales and sell. Office: dirty, dusty, only one washroom m/f together for 52 peoples (Forest Lawn) and small (1.2 m wide) cubicle, stinky kitchen, just to say the less.

Imposible to reach sale bar. Even if you make your job properly, and for any reason your client contact the company for asking discount, you lose your sale. Totally crazy. They are not what they say they are. The most expensive funeral services and cemetery properties in the country, hard to sale because lower prices of competitors.
Points positifs
Coworkers
Points négatifs
Tricky hiring contract, low quality training, Low payment, No benefit for sale team, Stinky office, Tiny dirty old cubicle, you have to buy your own electronic device, All at your own risk, Laptops from 90s have to wait 30 to 40 mins for start up, 1 washroom for 52 persons.
