Find another firm to interview with. Unless you drink the juice, you’re a goner. This firm is a devil in sheep’s clothing. Don’t believe all the hype.
Be sure to have sn attorney review their one sided contracts
Just because the say they offer bonuses and profit sharing doesn’t mean you’ll be immediately qualified. If the FA is at a lower level, you’re going to be helping them build the business with no incentives of your own.
Highly recommend you ask good questions about Financial Advisors background, how long they’ve been with Edward Jones and what level they are in. Do they work towards their goals using a business plan for themselves and other staff. If any answers bother you RUN!
Stand up for yourself
Ask questions about financial advisors education. If they have business major they could be successful and hopefully have management skills. So many come and go since unqualified. Changing FA can mean your job in jeopardy as well. HR not your friend in these situations
Agreed with the micromanager comment! HR said that was the financial advisors technique! You can have work hours starting at 9:00 for years and years then the advisor decides to change the hours and the BOA has to comply or leave. 👍🏼
Be professional but also know how to relax.

Interview the financial advisor while they are interviewing you. Ask how the office in run, what is the culture, will the financial advisor micro-manage your every move - stalk you?
