Working at SCI

A Caring Culture: It's in Our DNA

Anyone who works at SCI can tell you that we care for our teams. In fact, when we look for new talent, we look for individuals who by nature share our passion for compassion. Like other companies, we provide our associates continued learning and development courses as well as performance incentives, but we also offer something unique - the opportunity to touch our customers’ lives in a profound way and create meaningful memories. Just as we care for the families we serve every day, we care for each other, our communities and our Company.

Our Caring Culture extends to the ways we provide for our associates. We offer competitive medical, dental and vision benefits packages as well as a generous match on 401(k) plan contributions. Our wellness program provides credits to offset medical premiums. Through our paid parental leave program, we welcome all new additions—biological, fostered and adopted— into the SCI family and offer both mothers and fathers paid time off for bonding, as well as financial assistance for adoptions.

Family is important too. We understand the impact of the loss of a loved one and provide generous bereavement leave, as well as discounts on funeral and cemetery products and services for both immediate and extended family members.

Most importantly, we believe that diversity of background, experiences, thought, and perspectives among our team of associates enables us to make solid business decisions and remain relevant with our customers. Leadership teams across our Company are taught how to address different communication styles, establish a positive and inclusive work environment, deliver effective and actionable feedback and further coach associates to success.

This could be the most rewarding career you never expected.
