  • This position requires outside work regardless of the weather.
  • This is not a structured job in which the employee works Monday-Friday. Our company does not know until 1-2 days ahead of time how many funeral services we will have scheduled. Due to this unpredictable nature, the drivers are scheduled around the services that the funeral homes call in to us. Therefore, our drivers don't have a set day off or set work hours. We guarantee our drivers one day off a week, but will not always be the same day of the week. We do have our drivers on a rotation so that they get a full weekend off every 5 weeks. Most of the time, though, days off are in the middle of the week.
  • As with the work days, the work hours vary from day to day depending on what time the funeral services are scheduled. Drivers are contacted the afternoon before to let them know what time they need to report to work the next day.
