Company Culture

Could be better. Corporate changing policy to meet their needs continually.

Support from management

Not at all

Teamwork

Depends on which person you go to

Freedom to work independently

Yes

Internal Communication

No

Gender Equality

See above comment

Attitude towards older colleagues

Again if you can put up with teenage gossip, this could be the job for you

Office / Work Environment

Very noisy when a grieving family comes in. Crying can be heard up the stairs. Sales area not closed off, open to all people and staff walking thru.

Work-Life Balance

I was continually asked to work hours but scolded if I put my time in. Required call nights.

Handicapped Accessibility

Not allowed to go thru certain doors

Workplace Safety

No trianning for accidents

Challenging Work

Challenging in the degree of no support from upper management. No training

Inclusive / Diverse

They say they do, but don't stand by what they say. Much high school gossip among management.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Change current Cemetery Admin
  • Have training

What I like about the company

Helping people with preplanning

What I dislike about the company

Everything they do. Management spends more time talking about employees instead of trying to help them be successful.

Company Culture

This company is full of managers who work against one another.

Support from management

There is no leadership possibly text book to read.

Teamwork

There is always a struggle to work together it's more like a competion. You have an admionistrator who delegates who gets which family on occasions.

Freedom to work independently

See above note.

Internal Communication

There is no communication only hearsay and back door gossip. Managers all have their doors literly closed and check facebook and their e-mails regulary. There is no help from cemetary admin. No training only asking why contracts are done all wrong. No help.

Gender Equality

It doesnt matter what color, or sex you are you will be treated the same --unfarily.

Attitude towards older colleagues

They hire and go thru employess like water. Due to the administrator.

Career Development

No training, no advancement

Overall compensation for your work

Monies are not always paid out farily, admin will keep a portion for herself. Benefits are good.

Office / Work Environment

One computer that can be used by sales staff. All updated equipment in Admins office that is all off limits due to behind closed door and not able to use eqipment in that room. Old room with windows that has cold breeze comin g thru or swetering hot in summer. Noise is horrendous when a greving family is downstaiors. The crys and wails carry right up the stairs to sales staff left in open area withno door to close like rest of staff. Lighting is adequte.

Work-Life Balance

There is presure to work eve. to call on familes. Hours are 40 plus but company doesnt want to pay for you to stay.

Company Image

No all of the employees talk about the director, the other employees, the regional and national. I have never worked for such a Peyton Place non supportive company as this.

Job Security

Yes as more people move to cremation this is not a stable work postion. If you stay long the admin will destroy you.

Workplace Safety

Wiring is very unstable

Challenging Work

Proud of how I took care of familes untill cemetary admin. would say I handled it all wrong and do things over. Admin. would refuse to give help when questions.

Inclusive / Diverse

Any suggestions are shot down by administration

Suggestions for improvement

  • Replace cemetary admin. Look how many employess have quit or filed complaints and fix the problem. Have suffiencent training.Do not have a brand new employee meeting with an at need family.

What I like about the company

It is a beautiful cemetary.

What I dislike about the company

No support, No team, Constant turmoil, Upredicible Admin, No informitive in formation shared

Workplace Safety

There is NO training possibly a hand book to read. How do you deal with death when never having any prior experience? Administrator sabotoges all contracts and offers no help when brand new. Meeting with families un der stressful situations and trying to do a contract with no help or told you have done this all wrong and not to process thus repeat visits to the grieving family is a disservice to all involved.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Have training, and more trianing. Look at why there is such a high turnover of associates with the same adminstrator there.

What I like about the company

A beautiful Cemetary

What I dislike about the company

Interference from adminstrator on the cemetary side of house.
