A great place to work.
Part Time Branch Office Administrator - BOA (Current Employee), Arroyo Grande, CAFebruary 5, 2015
Pros: great environment
Edward Jones provides a great, professional & personable environment.

As a new employee, Edward Jones provides great on line assistance with everything needed to assist the client and make their experience one of professional, but caring one. As an "On-Call" Branch Office Administrator, that service is critical. If there is anything that you don't know, the answer is just a phone call away.

In the Helpdesk, we have no typical days at work. That's the fun of it....The training is extensive. The most enjoyable part of the job is assisting a customer.

Most won't make it through the program.
Financial Advisor (Former Employee), Fishers, INJanuary 26, 2015
Good place to work if you can make it through the program. From my experience very few do maybe 10 percent or so go on to having their own branch. Even then it isn't a guarantee that you will make big bucks but you will have a good lifestyle. You are your own boss and have an admin. People that succeed have certain advantages. About half are incredible sales people the other half have ties within the organization or family connections.

Investment Rep (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOJanuary 24, 2015
Great company history. They take care of their clients but you are an independent rep. So the comp and benefits you get are based on sales.

Small two person branch office
Branch Office Administrator (Former Employee), Denton, TXJanuary 19, 2015
A typical day at work is being on the phone with clients, vendors, and headquarters disseminating information between them. I learned how to multi task and manage several schedules while advancing and branding the business.The hardest part of the job was trying to coordinate appointments with a Financial Advisor that is hardly ever there in the office and doesn't keep you updated. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting with the clients and connecting with them.

Great Place to Work to start your career in a financial advisor position
Financial Advisor (Current Employee), Peachtree City, GAJanuary 13, 2015
Pros: independent; run a business as you would want it run
Cons: door knocking for hours on end
Monday-Friday from 8 am-6:00 pm

Invaluable training courses to identify and assess prospective clients' financial needs
Always do what is right for your client

The face to face prospecting (door knocking) is something to get used too but if you can get comfortable it becomes a fun day.

The independence you have paving the path of your career and having help from headquarters.

Financial Advisor (Current Employee), Columbus, GAJanuary 5, 2015
Pros: pay
Cons: training
Headquarters is in St. Louis, MO. You work out of your car for the first year. Meeting new people is fun.
It is difficult to know what is going on, because everyone works in another state. You work at least 6 days a week.
All of the exams are difficult, and one you pass them, you still have to go threw an interesting level of training from Mo.

On-Call Branch Office Administrator (BOA) (Current Employee), Various cities in MIDecember 30, 2014
Pros: mileage reimbursement
Cons: no other co-workers to work with
As an On-Call Branch Office Administrator, I have worked at several Edward Jones' offices, and all have been great experiences. My goal is to work permanently in either an Edward Jones office, or another similar office, and I aim to accomplish this in the next few months. I have learned so much about the financial industry, and how to assist clients with their clients. The hardest part of the job is that there is only myself and the financial advisor in the office each day, and I am a people person, so I miss working with a variety of co-workers. The most enjoyable part of the job is that I never feel alone. If I ever have any questions, I just call Home Office in St. Louis and there is someone to help.

Investment Representative (Former Employee), Bakersfield, CADecember 23, 2014
Pros: helping others
Cons: the market cycle.
Building a viable branch takes effort and time. A typical day began at 7:45 with sales calls/prospecting until 11:30. Client appointments from 10/1/2/3; the sales day is followed by the preparation for the next. Edward Jones offers great technology and information systems, and is know for its acclaimed contact management system. Prized also is the great group of like-minded investment professionals. The hardest part of the job is perhaps the best part: establishing the habit of employing a schedule of activities that produces results. To be able to engage an employment that has a positive and beneficial impact in the lives of our clients is the most enjoyable part of working in retail finance.
