His first 30 trades are free!

If it was for a new branch, watch out.  A few years ago they
opened branches inside of target reatil center.  They paid their
brokers over 100k a year (from what I understand), a year later they
laid off all most of the brokers and closed almost all their branches
inside target reatail stores.  I work in the discount side of the
industry and I really enjoy it.  I have never been full
service.  If you ex-full service, you may not like the discount
side.  The only full service guys that I know who stayed discoun
were usually guys who washed out becuase they were bad salesmen. 
Let me know how it goes.....

also,

let me know if it is for a branch or in a call center........................

they are getting into banking too, so be ready to be a banker!

Sweet deal? do you get a cordless phone so you can walk around and take phone orders?


I hear the Verizon is looking for a few good men/women to man their phones.

I remember when E-Trade opened up a branch in my local Target.  I always wanted to take my shopping cart up to their front desk and ask if I could pay for my stuff there or ask them which aisle has the toilet paper. <?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

If you want to work in a non-personal call center environment, go ahead.

Who sponsored you for the Series 7? Didn't they offer you a job?

Mar 23, 2006 8:24 pm

I was working for Morgan Keegan. I got a false fail from the NASD so I was fired. Bills got behind, so now I am needing stability.

Another piker who can't manage is own affairs, yet somehow believes he is qualified to do it for others.  Learn how to balance your own checkbook, become an adult, and then think about offering services to other adults.

It may be helpful for me to initially establish my "qualifications". First my degree, securities licenses, as well as success with past clients, more than satisfies my being qualified. Second I have managed HNW portfolios. "This may satisfy my potential ability to balance a checkbook." Lastly been an adult for more than 20 years.


Please do not mistake a short-term setback, to discredit by qualifications.

I don't give a crap about your securities licenses or your degree.  Suppose you sign up for instruction from a personal trainer.  He has a degree in Health and Human Performance, and has some certification from the state or whatever.  And, he's on staff at some club.  Then, you show up for your first training session, and the guy is a total fat ass who obviously can't run a mile or do a single pull up.  What's going through your head at about that point?  Get it?  Or, maybe I'm just shallow.

Exactly WHERE were you managing "HNW Portfolios", at H&R Block?

Mar 27, 2006 11:56 pm

Come on guy's, just when i thought the boards were getting cleaner. Just give the advice someone is seeking.


I am sorry I can not help you with E-Trade, I would also assume though its a call center, and does not deal with the client face to face. Maybe you need the dough and it could satisfy that for the time being though. Just go sell yourself again, if you had a false fail atleast that is something all firms are aware of now.


Good Luck
