    1. Edward Jones - Branch Office Administrators  | Division of Edward Jones
      Apr 7, 2016
      BOA Branch Office Administrator
      Current Employee, less than 1 year
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook


      1) Autonomy: Unless you are at a big, highly profitable branch, you'll be the only BOA, which means unlike other administrative jobs, you'll definitely have more autonomy when it comes to your work and have more ownership to your office. 2) Friendly and helpful 'co-workers': Yes, it's a two people office, by 'co-workers' I'm referring to other BOA's and head quarter department specialist (like retirement, estates, help desk). I never see their faces but daily talk to these people who are so FRIENDLY and actually HELPFUL.


      1) Your experience with Edward Jones will be highly contingent upon your relationship with FA and what level FA they are. He/she is the main person you'll be working with, if you two don' work like a "team", don't share the same working/communication style, it's going to be tough 2) This is both pro or con, depends on if you don't mind being ALONE about 70% of the time. It can get lonely or it can be peaceful, depending on how you see it. 3) Like mentioned earlier, you won't be making much bonus $$$ unless your FA is a high level, meaning profitable. Edward Jones FA level ranges from 0 to 10. At about level 5 is when BOA can make decent bonuses. But, if you are working at level 1 office and the FA is not moving up in their level so might be a long while till you get a decent bonus (after the ridiculous taxes!) If you FA is >5 level, I don't see why someone would stay as a BOA for more than 2 years. Pay is stagnate, growth is stagnate, even if you want to be an administrator in the long-run, Edward Jones doesn't use any of common administrative/office programs like MS office Excel/Word/SharePoint/ or SAP!

        Very nice people who are always willing to help and find other people to grow your network.


        Was not a lot of work to do and there did not really seem to be a set objective.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      Do you have general tips on how to respond if in an interview I’m told that I’m overqualified for the job (skill wise and salary wise) ?


      Property Manager

      As a leasing agent for two years, I then worked my way to assistant manager for t 11 months. Then, to a property manager position, nine months into my new role as manager, I was terminated, with no warning, completely unexpected. How do I explain this undeserving action and embarrassment in an upcoming interview without any risk in the decision-making of my employment with the company I am interested in? I hope I am relaying this in a way that is understood.
