Edward Jones – Why Work For Us?


A More Personal Approach to Success

You know the financial services industry, but you may not know Edward Jones. We are a unique industry leader known for our more personal approach to business. From locating single-Financial Advisor offices in the communities where our clients live and work to our investment philosophy that focuses on quality and diversification, we believe that building long-term relationships with our nearly 7 million clients is the key to our success.

Each Financial Advisor autonomously runs a firm provided, community-based office while enjoying the resources, tools, technology and support only an industry leader can provide. They get to know clients on a personal, one-to-one basis, offering them the diversified products and services they need to help reach their goals. All Edward Jones Financial Advisors enjoy the power and freedom to choose their clients, from investors just starting out to those with well-established wealth and resources.

Each Edward Jones office also has a branch office administrator who provides critical support services for our clients and Financial Advisors. We hire and promote hundreds of financial services professionals and branch support specialists to work in our full-service headquarters.

You’ll find that wherever you work at Edward Jones (in a neighborhood office or from one of our headquarters locations), our blueprint for success is to provide you with the tools and resources you need to achieve your goals.

Highly motivated individuals from a variety of backgrounds can join Edward Jones as Financial Advisors., In this role, you will work independently from your own neighborhood office helping clients work toward their long-term financial goals.

Our highly-decorated training programs are designed to support you whether you are new to the industry or looking to grow your practice.

It takes a special person to fully capitalize on this opportunity. Here are some attributes we find in successful Financial Advisors:

  • An ability to self-manage
  • Motivated by challenge/reward
  • Independent, yet comfortable working in a structured environment
  • Sociable/outgoing

  • Our headquarters opportunities are segmented into divisions, each with its own set of responsibilities and activities. We strive every day to best serve our clients while providing our associates with the tools and resources they need to achieve more.

  • Here, you'll find that your work can make a real difference in people's lives. Every position ultimately supports our branch network of Financial Advisors, who provide the investments, services and advice our clients need to work toward their long-term financial goals.

Edward Jones Financial Advisors are known for building quality, one-to-one relationships with clients – and they're able to maintain those relationships with the help of the Branch Office Administrator When clients have questions, the Financial Advisor will often depend on the Branch Office Administrator to provide a timely response.

An effective marketing communications program is only as strong as the person who implements it on a daily basis. At the Financial Advisor’s direction, the Branch Office Administrator updates prospect and client data records, executes direct mail programs, assists with planning seminars and makes follow-up calls to set or confirm appointments. The Branch Office Administrator also helps the Financial Advisor to deepen existing client relationships by preparing a variety of reports for scheduled appointments and scheduling systematic contact activities.

    The only financial services company that truly cares about the client, my brother heard from a competing company. The people here are great. I lived in Japan for 8 years and EJones has the same high commitment to servicing our own staff and clients that the best in the world has. My support team is hands off for the most part. Fair and honest. A lot is up to you. You have to realize you can't do everything and must ask for advice on how to get better. The help is top notch, so caring and personable.


    You must learn to manage yourself. It's a double-edged sword: You have much freedom but also you have to work hard. Most people have to be told when they can take a break, lunch, time-off, etc. Not so much here. You have to generate activity on your own. You must be independent and be able to work as a team as well. I've been out in the field as a new Financial Advisor now for 4 months and licensed for 2 and a half months or so. First month was a little uncomfortable, but nothing you can't do. Second month started rocky but I got lucky from working hard and had a super month. So exciting. Now, I'm focused on balancing my work and continuing to learn more and improve every day.

    Advice to Management

    The best feeling was calling compliance for advice this morning and helping my client make the right decisions. There are so many stories of people helping others, new, old, head office, local office, BOA, doesn't matter. Everyone is a component of something always getting better. Once or twice I have a hard day, but I always hold my head high... I'm having fun.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Edward Jones.


    The process has changed since I started, but expect to have a phone interview. Easy questions about yourself. Then you will go for a in person interview. Followed by the simulation. During the four hour assessment make suer you make your calls and answer the emails. What ever you do, do not miss the scheduled appointments. You will not make it pass this stage if you forget!
