Maybe you look at going to work at Jones. There are several reasons why you should.......

1. Run your own biz

2. Get LP

3. Super clean track record

4. Jones trips

5. 401k and health insurance

6. State of the art technology

7. No pesky emails to get in the way of 25 real contacts

8. Unparalleled equity rsearch

9. Voted "best company to work for " since 1493

Really man, look into it......even if Ted is dead.

Other things to note if you're going to work at Jones:

1. Wear proper ID so you're not confused with a Jehovah's witness

2. Carry plastic forks for all the 'hotdish' you'll get

3. If you ride your bike through the neighboorhood, take your tie off

4. Update your motel-6 club card for the Jones trips

5. Buy a manikin to keep you company in your branch office of ONE

6. Make a sign for the parking space outside your office that reads, "Reserved for ED Jones customers" - so the overflow from the local Walgreens doesn't take up your spot

7. Same as number 6 - but to also keep the dominos pizza delivery drivers away from your front door.

AND- when you get an office- put some poles up with ropes looped through them in your lobby-

that way neither you nor your customers will miss the bank!

I’m new to this message board, realize that people are fed up with all the ED Jones trash talk, and I certainly don’t want to distract people from producing.  But WOW!! - is it ever entertaining to make fun of Edward Jones.

Apprentice and ChrisB,

The reason we bash Jones so much is because we are fed up with all the BS that is spread by the GP's in the form of "Culture."  It is are way of detoxing.  I think I will stop posting when I start hearing some change at EDJ.  That might be in 2023.

Maybe there should be an EDJ only forum here then?  I have a friend who just left EDJ for many of the reasons you all are stating, so I am not at issue with the bashes themselves.  I think a centralized location for bashing/defending would be a good solution though.

My $0.02.

so true-- best way to handle it is to NOT read it- always assume that 80/20 is in operation here, 80% BS and 20% decent info--

and right when the EJ stuff starts to cool, the likes of the Inedible Hulk revive it again--if your attitude is that the boys are playin' around too much, you're going to get run out of here for being too pissy--

so just go along, read what you want and let the boys play, and if it bothers you too much, don't read Imbecile Hulk, et al and look for the 20% content that may interest you-

then again- this forum is not for intelligent comment only, if that's all you REALLY want just google your info, read it and move on- but admit it, you'll miss the Impotent Hulk after awhile--

Strange but true. I wonder how things are going for him and Mary Lou, next door to the Chineese Restaurant- right on Main Street.

I also wonder why we don't hear anymore from Guest1.

Jun 13, 2006 8:27 pm

This is weird, I didn’t know anyone still wore suits in our business. 

Jun 13, 2006 9:48 pm

The reason we don’t hear from Guest1 anymore is because he always wore a cheap suit that had to be tailor-made for 5 ft. 5 in. men who have Napolean complexes.

Or, perhaps while visiting Incredble Hulk he ate some bad Kung Pow at the Chineese Restaurant right next door.
