I completed this successfully, being given a potential area soon.

 
Is it plain sailing from now on?

The easiest job you will ever have is broker in training, followed by the toughest job you will ever have, being a new broker.  Best of luck, you're going to need it.

You really do not know me or what tough is! Keep taking the tablets

Mar 29, 2008 10:28 am

You're right I don't know you.  It's easy from here on out.

Mar 29, 2008 11:25 am

Hahaha, ya.

All the new brokers in my office work 20hr weeks and make over 100k.

That seems like a lot of hours for very little pay.

What are you talking about and is the "potential area" in Canada or England?
Mar 29, 2008 1:23 pm

USA ............... its a big place


I already make over $200K a year, just looking for extra pocket money, and something to keep me out of mischief ............

Mar 29, 2008 1:28 pm

btomba - if you already know all the answers why are you asking questions?



By the way, potato or potatoe?

Mar 29, 2008 1:33 pm

I know nothing!

Questions often reveal the inner soul

Listening to the answers that others give you to your questions also reveal the inner soul.



This business is about listening & empathy. No one will care that you have a high income. They only care that you can and will help them get there, too.

Wow this is the first time I have heard of EDJ giving one rep the entire country.  That is a lot of doors to knock on.  Best piece of advice I can offer, buy good shoes, maybe more than one pair.  BTW, this is not an "extra pocket change" business.  I highly doubt you led off your interview with the hobby approach.  Of course, even if you did, EDJ is not that picky.  Best of luck.

I think he is just bringing some colour to the board.

I speak purely in jest ... about the "extra pocket change".

 
I have large ears and will buy a good shoe, I have only one good leg ... 
 
Perhaps I would be better employed by IHOP
 
And yes I will let my fingers do the walking ...

Btomba......what were the behavioral questions they asked?

Mar 29, 2008 3:16 pm

Same as ever on the behavioral questions


Describe a situation where
 - you went out of the box to network,  ... threw a street party
 = you coped with rejection,  ... disappointed because only 2 showed up
 - You achieved great things, ......ran for President of the USA, 
 - you were given a project with no direction, .... dig up the openning of the septic tank   
                                                                             and you don't know where it is, just sniff! 
-  you personally achieved great things  ........ managed to get to the gym twice in one week                   
 
I did not tell them I had only one leg and this was a walking and sales job, perhaps that would eliminate me but I have big ears and should probably work for IHOP.
 
Just wondering if shoes are tax deductible?

Awesome.  Let us know how the f2f goes.
