Is it worth it to take a job as a funeral planning counselor sales job?

I currently work in a fast food type of management job. I was wondering if it was worth it to leave it for a funeral planning counselor sales job?

Are you able to deal with crying? Fast food is stressful but dealing with death takes a huge toll on those who are not ready to see it day to day. If I were you I would take it, it's a solid steady job but one must be able to handle the outburst of emotion from strangers.

I've never seen a funeral home go out of buisiness. People will always die. Besides, going from fast food to funeral parlor, that's like seeding the clouds.

I worked in the accounting department of a cemetery. The sales people that were the most successful were very kind and understanding with the family, but they also influenced them to purchase the more expensive stuff. You have to be able to be light hearted when families are not around and serious when they are.
