Careers Openings at Ever Rest
Join our team! Many terrific career opportunities are available with Indiana Memorial Group (IMG), with different openings in Sales, Operations, and Administration at our different locations in Indiana at any given time.
We have rewarding positions available in our Advance Planning Department as well as Family Service. We are dedicated to one simple idea—provide peace of mind by helping people make final arrangements in advance. Ever Rest Memorial Park has helped tens of thousands of families eliminate both the unnecessary emotional and financial burden of at-need arrangements.
By helping families make arrangements in advance, they freeze the cost of their cemetery arrangements forever. The burden of making and paying for these arrangements are not left to their children or family. Families save money because we often provide discounts for advance planning. Easy monthly payments are available in advance, instead of having to pay cash if they make arrangements at the time of need.
You’ll help families plan in advance without the emotional turmoil of making emergency arrangements. They buy only what they decide they need, together, without the pressure of at-need arrangements. In fact, our experience is that when families do this, they often spend much less than they do during an emergency when everything has to be done in a hurry and no one really knows what the person really would have wanted.
