Career Opportunities

Part Time and Full Time Illinois Funeral Directors

Who We Are:

Compassion Funeral Service is Northern Illinois’ largest third party mortuary trade and supplementary staffing service. We offer a wide range of services designed to support our clients. These services include: removals, embalming, livery services, funeral lead and assistance, cremation, and much more. We currently work with a highly diverse group of over 165 clients across an eight-county service area around Chicagoland.

Why Work with Us:

We offer a flexible three day a week schedule, offering full time team members up to four days off a week. We also pride ourselves on being a teaching trade service; committed to the education of individuals interested in mortuary science and offer a broad view of the field to newcomers. We offer a highly competitive wage structure which is coupled with a robust benefits package not easily matched in your typical funeral home setting. We are rapidly expanding and offer the opportunity for career growth and a chance for our staff to experience the diversity of our industry from both a rural and urban perspective. We work remotely, so when you are not actively performing a service for the company, you have the opportunity to be at home doing the things you enjoy.

Where We Are Located:

Compassion Funeral Service operates out of the following eight (8) counties around Chicagoland: • McHenry County • Cook County • Lake County • Kane County • Boone County • DeKalb County • DuPage County • Winnebago County

Full Time Employment Benefits:

Full-Time Definition: Full Time Employment with Compassion Funeral Service requires a minimum of just three (3) day a week.  We currently operate on twenty-four hour block schedule similar to that of a firefighter or police officer, (7am-7pm, 7pm-7am). For those of you looking for more time off during the week this may be a great opportunity for you, especially in an industry where long grueling hours are all too common. For those who are motivated we offer the opportunity at highly competitive wages. Team members are allowed to pick up shifts as they wish, allowing them to earn the wage they want. 

Team members do not actively work during the full duration of each shift. We operate on a rotating schedule with three funeral directors on during the day and three during the evening, to alleviate fatigue. We offer flexible scheduling and have fostered a fruitful company culture. Everyone on our staff seeks to see Compassion Funeral Service continue to grown and thrive. We welcome newcomers. Given the structure of our organization, average wages for full time employees vary. Team members dedicated and committed to hard work may see wages on the higher end of what is common in this field. This is an excellent opportunity for a motivated individual.
