"Don't bother trying unless you already have a network of multi-million dollar friends and relatives lined up to do business. The areas they will assign you to are already tapped out by the old guys who are there now. When you crash and burn they will only give you the boot and give all your hard work over to the guys who are already established."

"Edward Jones is an excellent company. Working in Information Systems you will get a lot of experience with enterprise infrastructure. Some of the technologies can be a bit dated if you are a tech guru."

"If you enjoy working solo, then this is the right job for you.The benefits are good, the pay is bi-weekly, the compensation is great once you work in a Profit Level Branch.What I love about Edward Jones, they provide you with all the tools you need to help your Branch grow. All the marketing, letters, emails, newsletters, etc... is predone! Amazing assistance from HQ but it does get lonely if you come from a large company to a solo one :( The 401K is great too!"

"It all depends on your region."

What do you like about working at Edward Jones?

"Ed Jones is different than any other brokerage firm, you can be successful if you build the right relationships. Many of the employees are very helpful if you reach out to them. You can have your own office. Great job if you are retired and want to work at your own pace or anyone with another check coming in."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"You have to be personable, FAs are outgoing and like meeting new people. Don't try and use fancy words and be smart just talk to them like they are your friends and if you meet someone who works there get a referral and you have 95% better chance of getting the job. Oh, its a 2month hiring process."

What don't you like about working at Edward Jones?

"The business model is stone age, I see how it works in small towns. In bigger cities the competition has more to offer. They hire people with no experience typically, if you work there you will never meet someone that transferred from a prestigious firm, they hire teachers, car salesmen, people from outside the industry. Payouts are low and you never have a book of business, its all theirs. They cheat on the best place to work annual reporting which is why they are always on top of the list. They pre screen whats going to be said to see if you can participate and only successful people from the firm are invited, not random by any means. The 401k has no match, medical benefits are a joke. Pay is the lowest in the industry. You have a week of training after exams and you are on your own always calling st louis home office when you need help, trainers are not paid extra and often tell you they are busy, you feel bad in front of clients when you dont have an answer and call to get support for things you were not trained in and they say its just in time training ( what a joke). Most people work from home and try do appointments at coffee shops or clients house. Lastly, if you are analytical and like looking at stocks or watching the market, this is not the job for you. They will tell you that you are only an asset gatherer, you sell mutual funds only for long term, no such thing as buy low sell high. You are a salesman at jones not a broker."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Have accountability for new hires working from home, everyone should work out of another FAs office so you know they are improving and getting the job done. Hire people with talent, older people with money are not going to give there retirement money to a 21 year old graduate with a babyface and no life experience 9 out of 10 times and you guys know the stats, why waste so much money hiring and training people who are obviously bound to fail."

"My coworkers are the only thing that makes this job worth doing."

"DON'T..turn around and find another job! Find a company that appreciates diversity in people, instead of clones, and will respect your ideas and opinions and vales change."

What don't you like about working at Edward Jones?

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I would ensure that my management team was not self serving and egotistical. They promote undeserving applicants and they tower over you like you are a slug on the ground to dissect."
