Financial Security Advisor (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 12 February 2018
I worked at Freedom 55 for 5 years and here is the honest truth. If you are going to be successful, you will need to know how to READ, WRITE, and SPEAK english fluently. The people who fail in this business are not 'business people or sales people'. They expect to be hired with little to no qualification, and to be given leads and sales. This is not the case. You will have to be a quick learner and good salesman. You'll have to know how to speak to people and explain what the company does and how they can help. There are NO office fees for new advisors anymore (there was at one point, but those days are gone). It is a great environment and YOU GET PAID THE VALUE OF WHAT YOU BRING TO THE TABLE. If you are a newcomer to the country with no natural market, you will not be successful. If you want to make $ in life, you'll have to WORK for it. If you are prepared to work, then this is the place for you. The pay is awesome, but you need to put in the work.
NO office fees anymore, Higher compensaion in 2018, Great atmosphere
lots of unqualified advisors who cant sell, training sessions sometimes long

Freedom 55 Financial is good company for people who has lead already, but it's not for the people who just entering into the life business industry. The commission structure is about average in the market
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 17 July 2017
This is a good started job for young people. The people here are very friendly and they are good with people. They promote staff and other people relationship building. We did some events as the whole office with the advisors and staff.

Freedom 55 is a good place to learn about the realities of being a financial advisor. Co-workers and managers commit to helping all new advisor's learn the business and develop. An emphasis on cold calling would help future advisors.
