A Career in the Funeral Industry: The Trip of a Lifetime

Cypress Lawn Funeral Home & Memorial Park has been providing compassionate and high-quality funeral and cremation services to families in the San Francisco Bay Area for well over a century.

Over the years, a lot has changed. We now offer many unique ways for families to personalize any service that they plan with us, along with the option to host a reception for their guests. We also offer trolley tours of our cemetery, showcasing our beautiful grounds.

Even though a lot has changed, our priority of treating families with kindness and integrity has remained the same. We know that each person we serve needs our help during a very difficult time in their lives.

In order to keep serving Bay Area families well, we continue adding to our staff. That’s why we are looking for compassionate and detail-oriented people who are ready to join our team.

We are currently looking for part-time employees, including staff members for our sales department, funeral directors, and hosts. If you are interested in these positions, click here to fill out our form or email jobs@cypresslawn.com.

A career in the funeral industry is meaningful and fulfilling in many ways. Here’s what Cypress Lawn President and CEO Robert Gordon Jr. has to say about his own experience:

“I remember the day one of my mentors stopped me at a conference and said, ’I heard you are making a career of the funeral business. It’s a good life.’

Thirty-plus years later, I still agree.

You may know someone who has recently graduated high school or is looking for a trade. They might not know what they want to do with the rest of their life yet.

They may find what I found – that once you get into the funeral business, it tends to get into you. I found myself by losing myself in the service of others.

As you read this, I hope this helps you think of a name of someone who you think would be a great fit for Cypress Lawn.

I’d be glad to meet them and tell them my story. You never know – it just may change someone’s life.

It certainly did mine.”

At Cypress Lawn, we are proud to have many experienced and valued employees on our team. They come from all backgrounds and walks of life.
