As a sales professional, you have a number of choices of employers in our area to take the next steps in your career. So why does working with us make sense?

Everyone needs our services and products
Unlike many products and services that you could sell, everyone actually needs a funeral or cremation someday, and advance planning makes the inevitable so much easier on a family.

Our sales associates are helping families meet a real need in their lives. According to one, “I picked this field because I’m helping families, and their loved ones. I’m able to meet with people and listen to help them create a service that will celebrate their life. I can offer them products that will create a lasting memory for their families and celebrate the life they lived, giving them peace of mind and a gift to their loved ones.”

We have an impeccable reputation for quality and value
We survey each family that we serve, and over 98% of them would recommend us to family or friends in their time of need. This allows our preplanning associates to enjoy the benefit of returning families and inquiries based on word of mouth and our excellent reputation.

Our four funeral homes, Penwell-Gabel, Parker-Price and Dove, offer the best funeral and cremation services in our community at fair prices, which makes prearranging accessible and provides good value for families.

Our two beautiful cemeteries, Memorial Park and Mount Hope, are impeccably maintained through abundant perpetual care funds and a dedicated staff, and have a vibrant community events program. Both properties have many options for burial and cremation and our monument and marker company, also located in Topeka, provides wonderful opportunities for memorialization.

We are committed to marketing, growth and supporting our associates
Our funeral home is supported by a robust television, digital and social media marketing plan which continually grows our brand awareness within our community. This supports the efforts of our preplanning associates by keeping our business and services top-of-mind for the public. A forward-thinking preneed sales leadership team and in-house Marketing and Learning & Development departments are excellent resources for our preplanning associates.

Our owner, Ren Newcomer has always known that if you satisfy the needs of your client families and create a great workplace for your associates, business success will follow. Those two principles, along with our Core Values of Excellence, Trust, Care and Growth guide our company every day.

One preplanning associate shared that “What I like about working here is that for all the years I’ve worked here, families and employees are still first.” Another relates that “they really care about people in making this process the best while investing in their employees to be the best they can be! I’m very proud to work for this company who truly cares about families while helping us to grow.”
