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.
Getting over the probation period. Few good managers.
Hourly rates are low in some job positions. Lack of respect.
