I don't know how anyone works at a funeral home


Just left a funeral obviously, I don't know how you could deal with such a depressing work atmosphere every day

Think of all the free shite they get off the bodies.

That's not even the hard part.

It's taking advantage of people who are going through one of the handful of worst periods in their lives.

I had a friend in high school that lived in a funeral home.

not all the time.

Funeral homes and services are a need.

Someone has to do it.

They don't make much money as a funeral director unless they own the home and most now are corporate. Rabenhorst is still independent owned though.

LOL.

There is no reason for them to charge close to what they do.

Add in that they're always in sleezy with the local politicians, and I have zero respect for those people.

Show me a poor funeral director and I'll apologize to him.

I was friends with a guy in high school who worked for a funeral home part-time. He was really nice, but a little odd. He said the hardest thing for him was dealing with a family whose child had died. He took the job for the hours and the pay. I definitely couldn't do it.

I agree. It's a pretty dead end job.

I wonder if there is good money in this type of industry.

Not really. Median Income: $54,330. You don't need very much to qualify though. I think I would need more money.

You would have to convince yourself that you are actually helping the family, and not capitalizing on their loss.

I couldn't do it. Great salesmen can but I would feel like shite selling things to people who are that vulnerable.

Same thing with people who work in morgues

You get used to it and eventually it becomes second nature to you

So, someone dies and your responsible for the burial. What is the first step? Unfortunately, I'll probably have to deal with this in a few days.
