Funeral Apprentice

C.C. Shepherd Funeral Service South Shore (South Weymouth)

We are a single-location, family-owned funeral home in a great south shore community that is comprised of an energetic staff who care about our community and reputation above all else. Due to our recent expanse in client families, we must also grow our staff in order to continue offering premier service to the South Shore.

Ideally, we are looking for someone who isn’t looking for a job, but rather a lifestyle of joining in on community/public relations events and being a true part of our growth into the heart of our community. This posting is for an apprenticeship that will certainly lead to a Funeral Director position as long as true work ethic is shown. Because we are in the midst of constantly higher call volumes year after year, there is truly no ceiling on your long-term growth with our firm.

Candidate should reside within 20 min. commute to Weymouth, be able to carry 75 lbs up one flight of stairs, show excellent people skills, and be of impeccable moral character. Do not be afraid to work hard for a well-deserved reputation in the funeral service industry; it can be far more rewarding than you think.

Pay will begin at $15 per hour and increase based on how well the applicant retains responsibility moving forward. We are looking for a very specific person and we are looking forward to finding you. Call 781-337-0050 and ask for Garret or email resume and inquisition to
