twshelb in Collierville, Tennessee said: Is the pay good at Edward Jones at the start?
When you start they pay you to study for the series 7 and 66 tests. The pay isn't much, but at least they are paying you while you study. The pay amount decreases after four months, and eventually you become strictly commission based.
Edward Jones warns new advisors to be prepared to struggle financially the first couple of years, but they have built in bonuses for new advisors that are not that difficult to reach. The salary the first year varies by region, but expect less than $25k in salary, but you can realistically make that much and more in commission and bonuses.
