I worked at Edward Jones full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Paid an hourly rate w/ OT figured in on a weekly basis (40reg + 5ot) during licensing, strong support culture, paid transportation and training, eventual storefront office in most cases,

Cons

Strong support culture - Business Coach, Perf Accountability Leader, Field Trainer, Regional Leader, Regional Leader Prep, Regional Leader Interviewer, Location Specialist, Visiting Vet......to many hands in the mix that results in confusion and frustration

Advice to Management

Look for qlty vs qty for your 2020 push of new advisors

    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Interesting work with great clients. Flexible hours and excellent office amenities.

    Cons

    With just 2 people in each office, there is no back up. The job can take over your life.

    Advice to Management

    BOA position should have several levels other than 2. The greater responsibility, the greater the pay.
