Why a Funeral Home Company Will Never Hire You for Your Driving Age
You are 21 years old, you have a driver’s licence, and you are ready to begin your job in the funeral industry by becoming an attendant. The only problem is that most funeral homes won’t consider hiring you because of your age. It’s not because they’re mean or don’t like your personality; it’s just that they’ll be breaking the law if they hire you. As I stated earlier, the law states that you have to be 21 years of age and have four years of driving experience to hold a job in the funeral industry. In other words, you can’t start working for a funeral home until you turn 24. Most transportation companies are willing to hire drivers that are only 18 or 19 years old because they don’t need an adult in the car during rush hour traffic and don’t want to pay your salary if you aren’t qualified for insurance. The only time an employer will break this law and hire you before your 24th birthday is if you are the only person with a license and four years of driving experience in the business to drive a hearse.
