    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time (More than a year)


    Edward Jones gives you all that you need to be successful. Their training is off the charts amazing and their support is fabulous. I am not going to lie, it is hard work but, if you're willing to work hard and follow their training, you can succeed. The work life balance is also wonderful. It's hard to find a company that cares as much about their employees as their clients, I must say, Edward Jones does great in both. Edward Jones will be my career for the rest of my life. Thank you Edward Jones!


    No cons to state here.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Edward Jones.


    Very thorough interview process that Edward Jones has, but it is all for the right reasons to ensure that the position is a good fit for you as well as verifying that you would be a good fit for the firm.
