Your job is to make money for the partners in this firm
If a customer makes an investment (which is the only way that you make money, there is no salary) the firm will be paid between 1-3% of the total amount invested. Within a couple of years you will be expected to make $60,000 or more in commissions every month to keep your job. Do the math, it's an insane number for a dying industry. You will receive 40%of that amount, less any taxes and benefits.
You will be responsible for everything at the branch level and they will be responsible for nothing. Every Jones broker is fighting to keep their job with the firm. The business model is to use employees as prospecting tools for assets to be invested. When you quit (which you will, eventually, don't kid yourself) the clients are theirs. Not yours.
The"diversification rips" that they love to tout are "earned" with a staggering amount production of their customers money going to Jones so that they can reward you with a fund company kickback (no other way to describe it) so that you can then be marketed to by them in some exotic location. Please buy our fund/insurance etc. At tax time each one will cost you a lot.
When I finally quit I was on the brink of financial ruin, my health was horrible and my wife was ready to take the kids and leave
5 years later we have finally recovered from the catastrophe that was Edward Jones.
If you are a good sales person, find a real company that makes real money that they can pay you for your talents with. Don't work for a company that doesn't care if your family starves to death or not.
