They don't pay what they offer. Products and services extremely expensive compared to competitors makes SCI hard to sell
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Vancouver BC Canada21 March 2017
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.
Pros
Coworkers
Cons
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.

Pleasant workplace with nice work culture
Executive Assistant of Financial Officer (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC24 November 2015
The company is globally set as a big family where people interact for the achievement of the same global objective.
Work spirit and culture interesting with good collaboration between colleagues.
Management very supportive and encourages self development, encourages less supervision thus more decision making of my own.

Funeral chapel is in good decor accordingly and easy access, good location.
Sales Representative/ Family Service Counsellor (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, Mb.5 May 2013
understanding the product/ service to market, the community contacts and targeted recipients are a combination of reluctance, denial, affordability and a very slow pace to respond. Therefore my commitment to reach the sales quota was a complete disappoinment.
The culture development among staff and co workers is outstanding, very supportive and cooperative.
I personally enjoyed the time flexibility to promote maketing strategies, developed business presentations and becoming a member of various marketing business organizations.
Pros
Bonus, free draws
Cons
very hard to meet the minimum sales qouta

A very fulfilling career with an outstanding company made up of truly caring professionals.
Area Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, Alberta24 February 2012
I can't say enough about this company. If you want to work in a neat, clean and well organized environment with a team of people who are committed to giving outstanding service to their client families, then this is the job for you. I loved it. I made a number of close, long-lasting friendships in my 5 years with SCI. The company exudes professionalism and integrity.
Pros
a great work environment with a sense of purpose.
Cons
can't honestly think of any.
