I applied through another source and the process took a day - interviewed at StoneMor in March 2013.

Interview Details Interviewed by park manager and assistant manager who focused on stating a sales counselor could make 100,000 per year. Did not ask too much info about my background. Training consisted of sitting in with a counselor during hard sell meetings with actual families.

Family Service Counselor
San Francisco, CA (US)

I applied through another source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at StoneMor.

Interview Details My interview consisted of being taken around the property by the sales manager and being told that I would make $70,000 a year part time. She said that counselors were fed leads. Easy to make sales.

Interview Question – NO questions at all. Didn't ask me anything- just told me about her marvelous success   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. $8.00 an hour- which I was shocked and appalled at. But I was assured mega commissions so I thought I would give it a try.

"Family Service Counselor" Interview

"Family Service Counselor"

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at StoneMor in August 2010.

Interview Details The person I interviewed with was exactly the type of person one does not want around families either pre-need or at-need - unfortunately I did not know that at the time. The interview was after office hours. He was a bit sleazy and incredibly unprofessional: cursing, saying negative things about other employees, asking inappropriate interview questions such as "You're hot, are you single?". The entire process that day lasted almost two hours. He turned me off to the job initially, but I opted to continue with the hiring process because of my interest in the death care industry, wanting to help people, and needing employment. After I accepted the offer, I had to wait for the results from a background check, which took about a week.

Interview Question – "You're hot, are you single?"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was nothing to negotiate. Pay is minimum wage OR commission - whichever is higher. My advice: if you want to work in the death care industry, either at a cemetery or funeral home, find one that IS NOT corporately owned. Your experience will be much more rewarding.
