Poor Corporate Support
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Beverly Hills, MIMarch 16, 2019
The Management doesn't provide the tools and environment necessary to make the sales quotas they set. They expect Sales Associates to perform but don't provide support and don't want to spend any money to provide a better atmosphere (shabby, dirty offices) or to provide sales staff with fair compensation.

Horrible place to work if you have bills to pay
Advanced Planning Counselor (Current Employee) –  MichiganJuly 25, 2018
As a sales rep you get minimum wage OR commission, NO PTO, NO mileage for sales calls, NO expense account, NO cell reimbursement, NO holiday pay. They don’t tell you in the interview process that you are REQUIRED to make two hours of cold calls EVERY SINGLE DAY. If I had known that I was going to be a telemarketer, I would NEVER have taken this job. It financially compromised me, can’t wait to find a new job!!!
Pros
None!
Cons
Everything, run as far away as you can

High stress high pressure sales environment
Family Service Counselor (Former Employee) –  Beverly Hills, MIJuly 19, 2018
This job is not for everyone. The company does provide 2 weeks of paid training and the materials and knowledge to succeed. However, it requires a lot of time, work and dedication to perfecting one's skills. You have to enjoy this kind of high pressure (potentially high reward) environment. You won't have much of a life if you work here.
Pros
Paid training and sales experience opportunity
Cons
High stress, low pay and poor work/life balance

Work at your own pace; create your own salary.
Family Service Counselor (Former Employee) –  Saginaw, MIJanuary 3, 2018
Typical work days revolve around a 900a-430p schedule, with some night and weekend hours, as decided by management.

Help assist families in opening the discussion for end-of-life decisions, and allowing them to pre-purchase these options as they wish. Ensure that all information regarding these choices is given and communicated clearly, and thoroughly, so that no decision is left to be made at an emotional time.

The staff is friendly and helpful, but can also be competitive. Ensure your drive to succeed is greater than your drive to slow down the person next to you.

Telephone, sales and customer service skills are a must. Should be outgoing, and friendly.
Pros
Dinner provided by management on late nights.
Cons
Working late nights and weekends.

OK place to work
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Plymouth, MIAugust 21, 2017
Was an average place to work considering it was a cemetery. Was a good position, a great deal of paperwork as I processed all burials, prepared the deeds and certificates of ownership for burial spaces and burial vaults. Good regular business hours. Most difficult part of the job was learning all the burial plot locations and maps. Management was generally pleasant overall. I learned a great deal about how to treat grieving families.
Pros
Meeting grieving families
Cons
Interments

It's ok!
Administration/Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Beverly Hills, MIAugust 17, 2017
Most of the people you work with are amazing! Some of them could use some work. You get to meet some of the best families on the worst day of their lives and try to make it a little better. I really enjoyed this job.

The new ownership, however, very lacking.

Working from Home
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Lutz, FLAugust 11, 2017
I enjoyed this job as it allowed me to work from home and still balance work and family. I basically did follow up calls for funeral services. If you work there be prepared to listen to the individual that you are talking with. Sometimes you just have to be an ear for them to vent to. Overall it is a great place to work for.

depends on what kind of person you are...
Advanced Planning Counselor (Former Employee) –  Royal Oak, MIDecember 5, 2016
After you learn the script for your script for presentations, you're basically ready to con people into purchasing the plots for their demise. That's if you can get them to listen to you long enough!
Pros
Hard work pays off
Cons
Management is money hungry!

Horrible Company
Commissioned Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Clinton, MDJuly 1, 2016
Do not waste your time with their new employment sales pitch. Its all a big farce. Worst company to work for. They expect you to work for free as you will be digging your own grave trying to make a living there. They have no respect for human beings. Its all about sales. They kept my final commission check telling me they had to hold it for a year before they could pay me. Downright dirty scumbags.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
This company in a nutshell
