Great Company
I have worked in various roles within Dignity for over 20 years.

Dignity is great company for ambitious individuals who have a genuine desire for customer service. Everyday is different and presents different challenges. Support is always provided by colleagues and management, resulting in a feeling of job satisfaction. One of the core values is customer service and is a fundamental aspect of all roles.


Representing Dignity has allowed me to understand the foundations of working for a leading company within the funeral industry.

I have been fortunate enough to attend multiple training courses expanding my knowledge of the role, services and products. The company also paid for me to gain a Diploma in Funeral Directing. I have become accustomed to the expectation to go above and beyond to help clients.


If you are truly passionate about wanting to make a a real difference for bereaved families, then the roles will provide you with great opportunities. Pay and benefits are also attractive and fair.

Good job, good support
Only thing I would say let’s Dignity down is the salary. They expect a lot from employees and it’s not reflected in the pay. During coronavirus they have been supportive with contact and updates on a regular basis and ensuring lone workers have sufficient PPE in branches. Management do take the time to let employees know of good feedback to which is refreshing when many only point out the bad.

Just Don't
Empathy, compassion, respect or 'dignity' towards the staff, deceased + their families is invisible at this 'Company' If you need the services of a funeral directors, choose a local independent, Not a Cash Conglomerate like Dignity (strange name for such a Disrespectful company!)

Poorly Managed
Management encouraged cliques, gossiping and back stabbing. Pretending to care about families, but realistically its all about the share holders. Mistakes are often covered up. Heavens forbid you are not rich, you have pay everything up front.

It's what you make it
Helping people and being proud doing so. Every day is different, Hardest part of the job is negative people and the pay. It's a job you do for the passion and not for monetary gain.
most enjoyable part of the job is the satisfaction in giving a family the journey that they require.

No dbs
Bullying, inappropriate people employed, no DBS checks means people with previous criminal convictions are employed. Old Boys club, if your face doesn't fit, forget it!

Dignity
Unsure it was an amazing place to work until the management changed. People are expected to do too much for the salary. Regular breaks don’t happen and people miss out on lunch breaks etc

Ignore the haters, I love it!
I have worked for Dignity for quite a few years and I cannot understand the negative reviews I see.
After 10 years I still enjoy getting up every morning and looking after families and working closely with decent colleagues around Yorkshire. Many of the staff get on really well, of course some fall out at times but it soon gets sorted and everyone cares about what they do.

Poor management
If the management was better it would be a Better place to work. Very rewarding job.
You are just a number and this is reflected in the staff turn over. Management continuously contradict their self. Management asking you to do things they would not do their selves and always looking for a scapegoat so they don’t own their own mistakes.

Management will provide honest and constructive feedback, will establish a hard-working and trustworthy culture. However, as with any outbound sales role you have to be committed to securing the sale.

Gained a lot of experience whilst working there which enabled to move onto a more experienced role. Different aspects to the role means there was different things to do within the role.

Absolutely soul destroying company
Don’t be sucked in by this company, they will destroy you.
Pay is the lowest in the funeral industry and they will try anything not to pay you what you are due.

Management leave a lot to be desired, they will lie to your face and talk about you behind your back.


Avoid this company

Don't bother working for this company
Bulling behaviour by management. Lack of training. No support. Long hours and not payed for overtime. HR in this company are just a defence for poor management. No care for families, just after their money.

over worked under paid
Where do I begin with this company?
Poor wages

Mistakes in said wages

Over worked as Dignity are severely under staffed

Toxic politics and back stabbing

Managements hands are tied and cant resolve the situation


Sort out the wages and stick to the EU working time directive then it might just be an ok place to work

Overall was enjoyable but the pressure for targets not worth headaches
It started good but, during the probation period, staff were put under pressure to meet targets. The level of care for clients and staff was very poor

Management control. Manipulation and theft.
I have worked for the company in the kent area for a number of years the area has a culture of management control and manipulation even theft by the area manager . Complaints Completely go ignored even when evidence is provided.

A terrible company to work for you feel undervalued. If your a manager doing what the area manager wants then your fine .
