Productive and busy workplace
The people I work with directly on my team are some the most amazing women and men I have ever met. These people are kind, hard working and serve our families well. Management is willing to listen to your ideas or concerns, whether they can act on your comments or not. The hardest part would be having to work long days and some weekends through the year.

Records Information Specialist
American based staff will scrutinize every part of your job. They will run you through the cheese-grater if you don't follow their every rule.

Think about the view at a cemetery office; the surroundings are not nice; you see grief from families on an everyday basis.
Points positifs
Free lunches from time-to-time
Points négatifs
Long hours, lifting heavy boxes, sitting all day long, bending and stooping constantly, extremely close working stations.

It is definitely not for everyone - it takes a very specific person to do this work
I was in funeral service for 16 years and had some good memories and loved serving the public and families going through loss and grief.
The company I was working for got bought out by SCI so initially, I had no choice. It is a corporation and has shareholders needing to make a profit.

When working with them in a driving capacity I was greatly underutilized.

There can be positives to working in a corporation I suppose but sometimes the lazy and incompetent thrive.

Certainly, there are lots more life-enhancing choices out there for work.

Fair and approachable management.
Provided you want to learn and grow, this is an EXCELLENT company. They don't have time for slackers, and really appreciate a hard-working, dedicated employee. The management team is fair and approachable. The staff is diverse, kind, and knowledgeable.

At need service
Not a great place to work if you have no skills in terms of sales. This place relies heavily on prospecting.

Sales people finds ways to take your sales and it is up to the management to make the decision who gets the commission.


Google a CBC segment on funeral sales and the story is pretty accurate.


Turnover is high and unless you don’t have big bills responsibilities, don’t do this job.

Just a Toxic Workplace to Avoid
Toxic workplace with bullying/racism from management & all staff from your co-worker to the very top
Pay is low considering the type of job your doing dressed in a monkey suit

Don't work here cause you will be used and abused daily

High turnover workplace

It's Not All That It Seems To Be
A typical day at work is busy from the get-go and busy to the very end.
I've learned that there's more to life than micro-managers, extremely long days, watching the clock tick-tock, listening to salespeople banter about how much they make from commissions, and some less than ideal administration staff to work alongside.


The workplace culture seems to be leaning to one ethnic society more than a multicultural environment; some people have mentioned that there may be workplace ethics that should be considered.


Every job takes getting used to. There are American and Canadian based staff at some cemetery locations. Local staff seem to be unionized, and the American staff don't seem to be unionized (and frankly don't care), so it gets to be stale.


The most enjoyable part of the job is leaving on a Friday evening, and hopefully spending time with friends on the weekends. I'm young and I just know that there are better suited jobs out there without having to wear black all day long.


Dealing with grieving families can put a damper on your personal life. Sure, you get used to it, but it's a tough job in this service area.
Points positifs
Getting over the probation period. Few good managers.
Points négatifs
Hourly rates are low in some job positions. Lack of respect.

Great Place to work
I learned lots, had fun, and met lots of dedicated people. Each person working there were a wealth of information, and more than willing to teach me the ropes.
There was one person that took her title more seriously than realizing she was part of a strong team, and team is better than title.
Points positifs
Fun people to work with
Points négatifs
They do not do anything about bullies.

if you want to live and breathe death, this is a job for you.
Dealing with people who have lost someone and now they are forced to spend a pile of money on frivolous things the funeral industry has created and made traditional to use, fancy expensive caskets and more...
Points positifs
discount if you die while you work there
Points négatifs
dealing with death day in and day out

There is a great team atmosphere here.
I would recommend this company for any experienced sales professional with a fairly large network.
