Worked for them for a month, felt like I needed to scrub my soul in theshower after very shift. Some of their practices were questionable at best but at 30 pieces of silver a shift the money was not bad if you ignored your concense

Very Supportive Company with a Range of Opportunities

1st line funeral care is a great company to work for. The working environment is excellent, the people that work within the company are very friendly. Everyone is willing to help you succeed and take into consideration new ideas you have. The director and rest of the team all strive to make improvements to succeed week in week out. This helps the company to meet targets and exceed objectives that are set.The director is open to new ideas and is always happy to listen to what employees have to say. In addition to this, is also willing to compromise and give opportunities to people in areas that they can thrive in.

Your typical call centre.

If you're looking for a fast paced, stressful and sometimes detrimental job, go ahead. Management are 'wolf of wall street' style and prefer shouting at staff before looking at themselves as an issue. Being a lead generator was detrimental to my mental health. The director would constantly berate those who were not performing well - shouting does not work to make people sell more. Not a very supportive management team unless you're a high flyer. Don't bother asking for a sick day, they will sack you or beg you to come to work even with a sick note. The wage is dangled like a carrot, bonuses too. Pay is weekly which is a good thing. The payroll here failed to pay my PAYE tax for 6 months, so please check your payslip, if you can get a hold of one. Work life balance is often affected, if you don't perform or hit targets, say goodbye to your plans. You'll have to work later or work a saturday. If you can't make it, you risk your job the following week. Training is short, make the most of it as the advice is valuable if you want to be successful. If you're looking for something short term, this is a good place to start. Loyalty is nothing in this company, sometimes you will be put in the firing line for the smallest mistake on a bad day. Bonuses are all fine and good, along with the commission structure, but if the company doesn't make enough money, you can wave goodbye to your extra earnings. Sometimes the managers will force you to ask things or say things that may cost you your job. The best part of this job was the call centre culture, everyone on the sales floor were good friends. - 

Pros

Weekly pay, good commission structure, good location, cheap parking nearby, good training

Cons

Stressful environment, target dependent hours, long days if targets are not met, saturday work if targets aren't met (frequently)
