Did you see how quick you were to make a thread about me? You really do have nothing. Your every existance on this forum is Fart Turd funny funny haha jokes at me. That’s all you have, otherwise you are worthless here. Be a man and talk like an adult. You don’t have to beleive anything I say, but have some damn respect for everyone else on this site and drop the childish 10 year old banter. I’m sure everyone on this site would like the threads to stop turning into bashes on me and I wouldn’t mind chiming in occassionally to an intelligent conversation, but I can’t because you are a regular Paris Hilton with your out of contex BS. You’re forgetting all the dialouge in the conversation there Ron. What about all the replies where you talked about what you acheived? You are missing those oh and the whole idea behind the posts that I replied to. What about the fact that you absolutely lied about us paying for the toner?
Well your information is absolutely wrong, whether it was the case then or not. It is not the case now. Bashing me, just because you want the attention is dumb. At this point in time, i do know more about Jones right now, than you. I work here, you don't. I would like to have some actual intelligent conversation, so i would appreciate you stopping all your childishness. You created this thread, in an effort to make yourself look funny. "aka the fat kid in school who does everything for people to like him"....I honestly don't think it's funny anymore. I'm not an idiot. I'm a pretty intelligent guy. Start acting like you are too.
I'm not chiming in much anymore, but a lot of this information you guys are giving is misleading. So someone has to correct it.
#1. Milestone Bonus's aren't much? $1000 just for going to eval/grad, $4000 at 4 months, $5000 at 8 Months and $7000 every quarter there after. I'm not sure how you think that doesn't help out a newbie. I received every single milestone bonus. They aren't hard to get. Ron, you just have to meeting expectations, so you couldn't have been "average" or you'd have received them. There's no bells and whistles. If you are meeting expectations you get it, if you aren't you dont.
#2. Phone bill is $1-$3 a month. Thats not even worth griping over.
#3. Who needs cable in your office? not to mention most offices have Jones satellite, and i have about 20 channels with that. Cost me $0 and i get to watch Peoples Court at lunch.
#4. Jones gives you a box of 1000 business cards every year. When you buy them it's only about $30 bucks. I'd say I buy 1 every quarter if not every other quarter. Really not an expense to gripe about either.
#5. Postage is discounted, but Jones also gives you $2000 credit when you first start that you can use for all your postage and marketing materials (Including Business Cards). Its lasted me about a year, and i still have about 1/3 of it left.
#6. Most of the EJ sales material you can print off your computer in color, so you don't HAVE to spend any money buying it. If you want it to be on nice paper, spend $10 for a box of 100 pages of high gloss paper.
#7. Toner is paid for as well as paper. We do not pay for those, so i'm not sure where you got your information.
#8. You do pay for upgrading your office, but there are plenty of ways to get Jones to pay for some of that. They paid for me to repaint my office, also paid for me to get my clients their own parking spot. If you call home office, there are people who will work with you.
#9. Whats toilet paper? $5 every month?
#10. All the envelopes and mailing material are pretty much free. There are very little "Edward Jones" things that cost on the supply screen that you need on a daily basis. Nice folders, candy jars, etc cost...but you can get by without that junk.
I think i've spent a total of maybe $100 this whole year on supplies and things i need on a daily basis. You guys are definitly trying to make it out to be something its not. Sure if you are taking people to lunch everyday, buying furniture, remodeling your office, wasting postage, buying every marketing peice you can find...then it's expensive. If you use your resources to your advantage, it will cost you next to nothing.
By the way...hit Seg 3 and my second div trip in my first year...Not that anyone cares, but i'm proud of it.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Everything else is a spot on representation of your point of view. If it were not for the past issues with your posts, this would not seem narcissistic. My advice for what it is worth would be to ignore posts with negative connotations directed at you. Especially if you have hit seg three by your one year anniversary date of Dec 15th. Congrats and don't look back.<?: prefix = v ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml" />
