Company Name:Fred C. Dames Funeral Home and Crematory


Compensation$65,000 Annually

Fred C. Dames Funeral Home and Crematory in Joliet and Morris, Illinois has been experiencing a 17% growth in families served over the past 3 years. We have 9 experienced funeral directors that have all been a part of this team for many years. We are looking for an additional long term Funeral Director and Embalmer or an Apprentice Funeral Director and Embalmer to help us with the increasing number of families who call upon us.

We are a 5th generation owned company who believes that healing the human condition has a direct impact on how they themselves and society will evolve. If you are a caregiver who takes the time to explain what this once in a lifetime service means to our client families, we would like to talk to you.

Our goal is to not fill a position, but to find the right individual to work alongside what we believe, are the very best professionals in the business.

● Salary expectations are that we start our apprentices at $45,000.00 per year and first year funeral director/embalmers at $65,000.00 per year. However salary adjustments are commensurate with experience.
● Full major medical benefits for you and your family are available after 90 days at 50% your cost and after one year of employment they become 10% your cost.
● Scheduling guarantees director coverage given the unpredictability of the nature of the occupation. A new member of our team can expect one weekend guaranteed off work per month and one day off during the week based on maximum case volume conditions. During standard or light conditions a new team member can expect a flexible waiting to be engaged schedule.
● Our funeral home is not unlike those family owned and operated nationwide, who put people first and are experiencing significant growth. We are what funeral service should be and for that consumer confidence is high and the value perceived is the value received. ● We are a forever evolving technologically adept core principled business.
