Branch Office Administrator in Ottawa West, ON
on 16 July 2022
Stressful and awkward
The office format is very difficult and discouraging. The organization knows the branch office administrators are the bones of the system and yet the BOA is underpaid and completely at the discretion of the FA . If you have decades of admin experience, bypass this company and keep looking.

Pay and benefit not that fair. BOA No way to be treat least fair. I know So many unfair on BOA who they communicate privately
BOA never be treated as fair and reasonable. FA is the only boss in the office. Take lots of advantage of BOA from work and personal life. How can be least fair? No way at all. The fact is BOA always have to babysitter FA but with least pay. I knew so many BOA just have to bear and keep in silence in order not to lost job. Lots of overwhelmed story in different branch.
Financial Advisor in Calgary, AB
on 15 August 2022
Great Company, Transparent, Supportive
EJ is an excellent retirement savings company, with access to most recommended stocks and mutual funds, as well as the banks products. Not forced or incentivized to push proprietary products, and has great transparency. Ideal if you are coming from another company, to negotiate compensation for $/% of your book and then enjoy increases workplace autonomy.

No Advancement
If your Financial Advisor does not advance then you will be stuck at a low pay. Branches are two people, the Financial Advisor and the Branch Office Administrator. The Branch Office Administrator does most of the work without a license and yet the pay back is very low. If you do not get along with your FA HR will side with the FA because they are who they consider their main asset gatherer. Bonuses are dependent on your FA, if they do not like you then you wont get much of a bonus even though you work hard, this also ties in with your performance review, HR will side with the FA and give you a low rating which is not fair.

Perks are only for Advisors, very little offered to motivate the Branch Office Managers.
Edward Jones has an excellent training program for Branch Office Administrators but the salary range is very low and the benefits are minimal. A lot of one's success depends on the personality of the Advisor we are assigned to, if the Advisor does not appreciate your efforts then there is very little by way of moving up the corporate ladder.

Interview questions

Asked to record an interview online and submit. I'm a seasoned professional and my interview was very good. Followed up with an email to the recruiter with questions about the team, work bench etc. and no response. Then a standard decline email without any feedback. Very poor experience and VERY telling about their culture and how they treat people.
