Don't worry keep doing gross everything will be just FINE!!  At this point management doesn't have any plans on firing Pathways.  (Just a few lines from management)


 


Well guess what 70 - 80% of all the Pathways folks are gone as of today.  The only people that survived are the ones who where at the tail end of the program.  Good luck and god speed captain curk!  


 


At the end of the day what can you say times are tuff.

Most Pathways advisors were "encouraged" to move to the FA I platform in December.  There weren't too many left, anway.  I would guess that only 1 out of 10 made it through the two years.  Pathways was a good way for new advisors to get into the business but like any training program, hard work pretty much determined the outcome.  The ones that waited for referrals from their CM's didn't do too well.

Today....you really do resemble the arse of a horse.  I bet you beat your wife, too.  We lost some great folks who really did not have the opportunity to prove themselves.  I hope they find places to land and prosper.  Now quit being such a retard and go back to studying your economics and maybe pick up a copy of Hooked on Phonics.

Piker-

This post made my day.  I was one of the Pathways people cut on Friday and while it wasn't much of a surprise that we were all getting let go, it's a life-changing setback in this economy.  I'm confident that my fellow trainees and I will all land on our feet, either in finance or other industries.  The fact that people like "today" are out there, publicly insulting hundreds of people he's never met says more about him than the people who have been let go.  Maybe someday he'll learn how to separate his ego from his job.

Good luck everyone!

FYI smartguy, I wasn't even a month out of our "initial training" at Charlotte and I got laid off.  Came from a smaller b/d and first year I made over $100K as 1099 Independent Contractor with my own staff and payroll.  Before that, I was serving this country in an Army uniform all over the world including Baghdad while you sit at home & call people worthless.

if you were making that kind of money in your first year, why the [email protected] did you leave? i call bs.

Mar 22, 2009 12:28 pm

Well Mr. Draper, you can call BS but I have nothing to prove to you.  I was actually living overseas with my last firm and had to move back to the states b/c the firm was restructuring operations in Europe.  So when I came back to the states, I had to start from scratch.  Plus, I only had my Series 6 so the only equity products we could do was mutual funds so I made most of my money selling life insurance.  And I know that most brokers out there don't sell life insurance a great deal but you can make money faster upfront than with investments. 

 
The problem was that every year, you had to start from scratch just selling life insurance and I just didn't want to sell insurance and be a one-trick pony; I wanted to be able to do more than that.  Plus, if you read my statement in it's entirety, you would have seen that I said I was in Independent Contractor and had my own staff, payroll, self-employment taxes and it was a big headache.  I figured I could take one step backward and it would be for the long haul. 
 
So Mr. Draper, you can call BS all you want.  All I was trying to point out to the other guy is that you can't classify people without even knowing their situation.  And if you ever want to meet up so I can show you my tax returns, I'd love to do it.

sometimes the truth hurts. Just pointing out that Bank of America fired trainees and CM's- so maybe BofA agrees with my viewpoints.  Personally i thought the training program was horrible and set people up for failure.  i also thought that the CM's were overpaid and lazy.  Just my opinion though.  Maybe worthless was too strong of a word.  I should have used not cut out instead.  This is America freedom of speach.  dont like it dont read    d!ckhead.
