Newcomer Funeral Service Group has afforded many opportunities to associates who desire personal growth through changing roles within the company. We post positions so all associates know of open positions and can express their interest. Here are a few examples:
Sometimes our Associates promote within the same Career Path…

Sometimes our Associates change cities or states to continue their Career Path…
Andy joined us in 2011 as a Funeral Director/Embalmer in Ohio. He and his wife had always lived in Ohio but really wanted to relocate to the coast. In 2014 when an opportunity opened in Orlando, they packed up and transferred to Florida. In 2020 Andy was promoted to Funeral Director in Charge of our Winter Park, FL location.
Laura worked with us for many years in Toledo, OH. When she got engaged and decided to move to Columbus with her fiance, she was worried about what would happen with her career. Human Resources helped her to transfer to our Columbus location. Laura was glad to be able to stay with us and shared that her transfer experience truly made her feel like a valued employee of NFSG.
Heather started at our Syracuse, NY location in 2013. She came from family-owned funeral homes and was looking for more flexibility for her young family while continuing to work in a field that she loves. She also wanted the opportunity to grow in her career. Newcomer's family-first structure gave her the support that she needed during the loss of her first son, the birth of another son and the ability to transfer to our Lakewood, Colorado location when her husband received a work transfer. She has also grown into a management position as the Funeral Director in Charge for our Aurora, CO location.
