Why is it so difficult to find a job .. any job .. with a funeral home?
The funeral industry, as a rule, has a history of low turnover. Whilst salaries are often quite low, the close camaraderie among the teams of workers makes up for the financial shortages.
Gaining a position in the industry requires the potential employee to present themselves as extremely adaptive, adept at mortuary sciences, as well as being highly tuned in people skills, and finally, the quality of their personal presentation.
A prospective employer would immediately 'sum you up' by looking at your shoes - are they freshly shined with no scuff marks? Are your fingernails and hands immaculate, with no nasties beneath your nails? Are you someone who chews your nails? (not a nice image when pointing out paragraphs in a contract). Are you clean-shaven, is your hair neatly trimmed and clean? DO you reek of smoke? Are your teeth clean, shiny, and intact? Do you present yourself as a lady or gentleman who is clearly adaptive in dealing with a wide, diverse clientèle? Is your use of your national language perfect? Or are you one of those people who repeatedly says 'you know, you know, etc., or asks where is the funeral going to be 'at'? All of these things can be an extreme turn-off to a prospective employer, regardless of what industry you're in.
Have you demonstrated verbally your sense of comfort in dealing with the more demanding aspects of such an industry - the dealing with cadavers which may have been found many weeks after they died? Or collecting someone who died as a result of fire, or someone who was a victim of drowning? Are you prepared to use a trocar to aspirate the body fluids from the cadaver? Are you prepared to use invasive movements to reach inside a body cavity, removing a pacemaker, or suturing a post mortem cadaver? Are you comfortable in cleaning up the explosive faeces which often happens with certain cadavers, all whilst treating the deceased with dignity, honour, and respect? Are you capable of properly dressing a body, to make them presentable in their coffin for a family's viewing? Are you capable of taking the sometimes necessary steps to embalm an infant with an aerosol procedure, never forgetting that it's a child loved by a family who are in mourning?
Are you 'happy' to clean, polish, and buff, every single day of your life, the vehicles used by the funeral director - including the vans, the hearses, and the limos? Do you have a full, clean, driving license, with no points on it. Have you any convictions for crimes of any sort? Have you any problems with Eczema or atopic dermatitis that a family could notice when dealing with you?
Have you any religious values which may prevent you from serving a cross-cultural, diverse number of religions with dignity and respect. Do you know the difference between a Hindu funeral, a Muslim funeral, a Catholic funeral, and a funeral for a Jehovah Witness?
Any of the above questions or scenarios will have been questions which ran through the mind of your prospective employer. The first three minutes of meeting someone are often what decide whether you're to be hired or not. Is your handshake firm, polite and you have eye contact? There's so much to consider.
If you believe you may be lacking in any of these skill sets, consider seeking assistance through an employment recruiter or your local state employment office, where short courses are offered on job interviews.
And finally, be prepared to answer why, specifically, you feel you're best suited for a career in the funeral industry!
i dont know but if u get to know , share pls
Funeral homes are made to look like homes- many are old homes. People used to display the bodies in the parlors of their homes- funeral homes serve the same purpose. The homey feel makes them seem less commercial, I think.
Blame computers. these jobs are handled by computer keyboards.
There came a time when families no longer wanted to "Sit up" at the wake. This is a time when the family/friends would sit up all night long with the corpse before the funeral. A funeral home is a business that will remove the human remains from the place of death and prepare it as the family wishes, or as required by law. The funeral directors are the people that direct the family in the… Read More
By the time the body gets to the funeral home too much time will have passed for the organs to be of any value. Even if they were, it would not be worth the risk of adverse publicity for the funeral director to consider harvesting them.
All things take time- and considering recent events- flash floods- tornados, it is not at all inconceivable that transportation ( roads) and communications ( telephone lines) could be disabled or knocked out by same. So it can happen.
There can be a vast range of reasons why a funeral home could not release a body: Is the family claiming the body the 'legal' next of kin and is able to provide supporting documentation which would satisfy a court of law? Has the funeral home provided a number of services, for which they have yet to be paid? Under the local, state, and national laws, is the family wishing to have the body released… Read More
This would depend on if the bloating was due to internal gas or water. In a case of internal gas when pressure inside the stomach causes the deceased's stomach to swell up, a mortician or funeral director, will relieve the body of the stress by making an incision into the stomach to release the case. This is normally achieved, by incision three finger lengths down from the middle of the breast bone. In the case… Read More
A funeral home is a funeral home. There's a also a name 'funeral parlour' which might sound fancier although I don't understand why you're asking.
it depends on the bear
Yes. I know of Harper Morris and I'm sure there are others.
You can really do either. Typically it is done in a funeral home but sometimes, especially when people are heavily involved in the church, a memorial might be held there.
If you are positive, or have suspicions, that a funeral home does not have a license you should immediately contact your local municipal licensing agency, as well as your state board of morticians.
You do not have to have an associates degree to clean a funeral home. They do require you to be VERY thorough. It is a job for someone who pays attention to the smallest details.
you can go to beauty school and go to a funeral home and asked can you be their funeral hairstylist
A funeral home hairstylist makes about $75 a head.
In a simple word, No. A mortician may be a contractor who travels between funeral homes to do embalming and prep work. In the United Kingdom it is very rare for someone to be embalmed. Therefore, when it is specifically requested, an embalmer or mortician will be booked to complete the service. This saves the funeral home from the cost of maintaining expensive equipment and chemicals, thus providing less costly services to families. The word… Read More
Czelusniak Funeral Home is the most respected funeral home in Northampton Ma. They are family owned and operated and have been in business for over 100 years.
Because television advertising is most suited to broad audiences and so reaching a niche audience through TV is very expensive.
As funerals are of course a solemn and spiritual function there are obvious angles similar to church etiquette. In many churches- though it is no longer enforced, it was customary for all Women to wear some sort of head covering in the House of God- whether this would extend to a funeral parlor is well, at least analogous- the transfer point for other worlds- spiritually! Men of course, doff their hats indoors and especially in… Read More
There are several things that funeral homes do to a body..depending on state laws...Basically The first thing is that the body is placed in a refrigeration unit at 45*F until all the paperwork for that body is verified... The body will remain there until the family, next of kin, or in some cases the state decides on the burial procedures to be done.* If the family, next of kin, or the state decides that there… Read More
Both funeral homes were sold to James Stinson owner of Stinson Funeral Homes. Main Office 16540 Meyers Detroit, MI. Not sure about the year
leevys funeral home in columbia,sc
The funeral is Saturday, August 16, 2008 @ 12pm. The funeral is being held at the House of Hope church in Chicago @ 752 E. 114th Street.
The Funeral Home they used for Hector Lavoe's Funeral was the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Home in Manhattan. The same one used for Celia Cruz.
Will a funeral home wait for you to receive life insurance to pay funeral cost or do you have to pay before funeral service?
Life Insurance Company will pay such amount to you after you submit the death certificate in insurance company. Fist you have to pay to funeral home and after that you will receive insurance amount from the insurance company. Here is link from where you got the local funeral home information in detail and ask them for the same. http://www.allfuneralhomes.com/
Perhaps related to the parody that goes- One to watch, one to steer, and two to fetch a can of beer. the original was One to watch, One to Pray, and Two to bear my soul away- note possible related role of alcoholic beverages in accidents, crimes, etc.
To become a funeral director, one must complete a specified number of college hours dictated by the state of desired practice. Upon the completion of such hours, one must enroll into a Mortuary Science program that has a national accreditation. Such programs typically last about a year. In addition to formal academics, one must also complete an "apprenticeship" that typically lasts at least a year. There are also tests that must be completed on the… Read More
Who pays for funeral if you signed fort it and there is a verbal agreement between funeral home and another party?
I have been down this route, my Dad died on 30/11/08 ages 49. His partner whom he had live with for 10 yrs said she was tooo upset to arrange the funeral, so myself, my grandparents, auntie's and uncles and his partner sat down to disuss what sort of funeral we would give Dad. His partner at this meeting said that Dad had left her £4000 cash at the house to pay for it (he… Read More
Gina Lollobrigida"s family was in the furniture business. Coffins can be considered a form of furniture if of wooden construction, many are. Italians go for elaborate preparation of the deceased, particularily Ladies and make up, jewelry and so on are lovingly applied. The custom of Flowers in her Hair is also of Italian usage. This is alluded to in songs such as the Flower Girl in the Cowsills song who was evidentally a ghost.
In an affluciant area funeral homes/owners can easily make anywhere from 100-300K. Just depends on the area, the reputation, experience, service provided etc.
The presentation of the deceased is a process provided by funeral directors to help survivors have a positive and endearing final memory picture of their loved one in silent repose.On some occasions, family members may prefer that their loved one not be dressed in their general clothing, preferring to use collections offered by the funeral director. This can range from a simple, yet lovely shroud or dressing gown available in different styles and colours. Or… Read More
To stop the smelly breath the dead person had
There are some conflicting (plot) lines. If you mean plot as some sort of scenario or sequence of events- as in the Plot of a story or play- well... different churches and temples have differing ritual requirements for Requiem Masses for the dead- for example, in the Catholic Church, there are certain traditions that the Closest next of kin follow the casket into the church- this being the office of the Principal Mourner. ( I… Read More
either one will do
Most state laws state that, along with educational requirements, you must be at least 18 years of age.
In the twenties and thirties, viewings of the deceased made the transition from the home parlor to the funeral parlor. One can credit or blame either the Depression- a down angle indeed ( l929-38) or Detroit- automobile accidents posing some damage control problems best handled behind closed doors- but restorable. Either cause could be true. Religious sisters are traditionally laid out in convent chapels so the home-wake custom is not totally extinct.
That depends why you are signing it over. If your loved one is applying for Medicaid and can't have more than the required $1500 in one account then it would be best to sign it over with the understanding that once the funeral expenses are paid the remainder of the money should be written in checks to the children. Before you sign over the policy make sure that you have carefully checked out the funeral… Read More
Not being aware of where from you're asking this question, it's rather difficult to answer correctly. However, in many instances, arrangements can be made with a funeral director to bring the deceased 'home' for vigil or a wake. Sometimes this is done with only a closed coffin. In other instances, it may be possible to offer with an open casket/coffin day. In some cultures, it is appropriate, although not done as often today, for the… Read More
The funeral expenses should be paid for out of an individual's estate before anything is paid to beneficiaries. This is usual language in wills and trusts. This must be paid for when services are rendered. However if a person is still living they can prearrange their planning with a licensed funeral director prior to this event. Usually if the individual is deceased the Executor and or Trustee will take care of this.
Some do, but you need to ask.
No. Most states, however, require embalming when death was caused by a reportable contagious disease or when remains are to be transported from one state to another BY COMMON CARRIER or if final disposition is not to be made within a prescribed number of hours.
You are confused with the custom of the Principal Mourner, it is sort of a parade-dress thing and has nothing to do with the Funeral Parlor. as the casket containing the deceased enters the church, the Principal Mourner, who is the nearest living relative, On foot, follows the casket to the front of the church, then takes up his or her seat. The principal mourner walks behind the deceased.
its so obviose your an idiot :P

It can mean almost anything, although it really should mean that a very specific casket is offered by the funeral home. One should expect the funeral home to offer either the type of casket chosen for the funeral of President Kennedy or its modern successor model. JFK was buried in a solid mahogany casket design # 710, manufactured by the Marsellus casket company of Syracuse, NY, which was known at the time as the most… Read More
