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 competitive benefits and performance incentives, but we also offer something very 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.

Also, 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.

We Take Care of Our Associates

Our Caring Culture extends to the ways we provide for our associates. We offer qualifying associates a comprehensive range of employer-subsidized, competitive medical, dental and vision benefits packages as well as a wellness program that rewards associates with benefit credits to offset medical premiums. We also tier our associate premium co-pays according to income levels, and we provide employer-paid life insurance, short-term and long-term disability insurance.

We also help our associates plan for retirement by providing a robust 401(k) plan with a generous Company match. Associates enrolled in the program can receive a 75, 100 or 125 percent match on their contribution of up to six percent of their annual income, depending on their vested service with the Company.

We understand that spending time with family is important too, which is why we offer eligible associates a variety of paid time-off opportunities including vacation, holidays and sick leave, which increases with tenure. In addition to offering eligible associates up to six weeks of paid maternity leave, through our paid parental leave program, we welcome all new additions—biological, fostered and adopted— into the SCI family and offer mothers and fathers two weeks paid time-off for baby bonding, as well as financial assistance for adoptions.

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.
