So much has been said about the unapproachable ethics, moral standard and culture of Edward Jones Brokers.  Here's today's quiz-


WHO was the Top Producer of all times at EDJ ; and WHY did he GET FIRED? (Don't give his real name-just location of office)


 OOOOHHHH this one is going to be fun!


RANK-NOGGIN-HULK put your green heads together- do you know the answer- OH YEAH- BUTkISS= throw in on this one man!

Ahhhhhh you just said that so more people would read!

Pantiless Wednesdays?  TX

There was a guy I heard of in a East Texas town that got canned for helping out his assistant.

How about the guy who got fired for having porn in his VCR at the office.

SECOND clue-


Ex IR- sort of right- It was "No Panty FRIDAY"


Keep guessing- it gets better...

Wow...and to think I thought it was interesting to have a stripper for a CLIENT...apparently some Jones offices make that look pretty tame...


I told her that I couldn't take cash, but I know for a fact that she paid for her tax return with several twenties...and fifty-five ones.

Spiked Wins!


That guy rocked.


Million Dollar Producer. Had 6 full time BOA's- four of whom he recruited from a local Strip Club! He owned a limo and would send one or two 'assistants' to pick clients' up for a Portfolio Review. They showed them the Mountain Charts- everybody was Happy- for awhile.


Then it all came crashing down- it always does. Seems he didn't pay bonuses on an even basis and one gal collected the reminders he would put on their desk in his own handwriting that said "Rememeber- tomorrow is NO Panty Friday!".


Sounded like a fun place to work.

Just curious, whatever happened to him?  Still in the business?

I am not defending him or his actions but if you are going to use this forum to bash someone you had better be sure of your facts.

May 16, 2006 6:17 pm

"That guy rocks!" (Sarcasm noted here)


Sorry I offended you Gone Indy. I didn't REALLY mean that he rocks. But he sure found a better way of building a booming business instead of Knocking on Doors.


I cannot verify that WHO he actually is. But I can verify the truth of the story.


Hope that helps you out.


BTW- MORAL of the story is- not ALL EDJ Top Producers are ministers living in hubble, rollingis sack cloth and ashes- as some would have you believe.

Was this the true reason he was let go or parted ways? This came up on

another thread a while ago and someone else had a different take on this.

May 17, 2006 9:40 am

No problem Muny, you didn't offend me.  I know the individual that everyone is talking about.  It's just funny that every time I hear the story told it becomes a little more fabricated.

TRUTH and GONE INDY:


Here's how I got the story: (PS GONE-since you know him-may let him know this is how it gets around)


A GP in STL ranked between 5-10 in the firm told the story in an Italian Restaurant, during dinner, with another GP at the table of about 12. Myself and three other IR's were his intended audience. Don't have a CLUE why he told the story but he claimed to be on the council of peers doing the inquisition.


He said all was well in the office. There were never any complaints from clients nor from the staff on the after-hours activities. They closed the office early on Friday's to get paperwork done. Somehow along the way, Themed Friday's began. Sometimes they popped a porn flick in the video, etc. He was EXTREMELY well liked in his region and with his clients.


After bonuses were paid, one assistant discovered she did not get as much as the others. She filed a complaint with Human Resources in sTL claiming discrimination. They told her it was his choice how much to pay. She hired an attorney who said she could get more in Sexual harrassment but she needed proof. When he left the yellow post-it notes on their desks Thursday he signed his name. She filed a lawsuit.


STL had to settle with her out of court but she had to sign a gag order. According to the GP  telling the story, Jones had 'no choice' but to force his resignation as there is a zero tolerance policy on this.


Again, I did not bring this up to bash him. Why this was discussed at a dinner meeting, I have no idea. I wanted to point out that not all at Jones are pious, penniless poppers.


Jones was sorry to lose him. That was my take.

IN REGARD TO GETTING FIRED FORM JONES FOR GOING TO A STRIP JOINT. I WOULD RATHER SEE A IR GO TO A STRIP JOINT, THAN TO STAND UP IN FRONT OF EVERY ONE MY WIFE AND KIDS INCLUDED. AT THE SUMMER REGIONAL AND INTRODUCE HIS HUSBAND TO EVERYONE. NOW LETS LOOK AT THE HOLLY EJ FAMILY. YOU CANT TAKE A GIRL FRIEND OF ANY PERIOD OF TIME. EVEN IF YOU LIVE TOGETHER . YOU MUST BE MARRIED IN THEIR EYES TO BE RIGHT . BUT YOU CAN TAKE YOUR QUEER HUSBAND AS LONG AS YOU SAY YOU ARE MARRIED EVEN THOUGH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DOES NOT RECOGNIZE QUEERS GETTING MARRIED, JONES DOES!!! TRUE STORY THIS HAPPENED SEVERAL YEARS AGO AT A REGIONAL MEETING . THE IR COULD NOT WAIT TO GET UP AND INTRODUCE HIS HUSBAND. HOW DO I EXPLAIN TO MY CHILDREN I WORK FOR A VERY RIGHTEOUS COMPANY THAT HAS STONG FAMILY VALUES . YOU MUST WATCH HOW YOU LIVE. NOT GO TO ANY SHADY PLACE SUCH AS STRIP CLUBS. BUT A GOOD OLD FASHION TURKISH BATH HOUSE THAT HOUSE A BUNCH OF QUEERS IS OKAY!!!! ALL I CAN SAY IS IM FREE AT LAST I`M FREE AT LAST THANK GOD ALL MIGHTY I FREE AT LAST !!!

Preach it brudda!

FREE while I am happy for you that you left Ed Jones, you are ignorant. I hope this does not turn into a gay bashing thread. I am not homosexual but to berate those that are IMO is like making fun of someone's race. Congratulations to you and your clients on the move. BTW I absolutely love strip joints and gambling so I was not the ideal EJ guy.

Jun 1, 2006 11:37 am

Skol, the gerbil story isn't gay bashing...it's stupidity bashing.  Also, I think the original post's real point is that EDJ is selective about what "morals" they regulate.  I too think it is ridiculous that they would sanction a gay couple and not sanction an unmarried heterosexual couple...what the heck is the difference on the "moral" meter?!!!

Jun 1, 2006 11:41 am

 Indy-Agreed. Additionally let me rephrase your post sounded ignorant you however may not be.
