I went with RJ because:

-they have a day to day branch training program with the managers that is very strong.

-the home office training is excellent (just got back)

-you have a variety of employment options.  If you want to go INDY you can do that and still be a RJ employee.

We had a gal in our training class from AGE.  She said the only difference was the computer systems.  She felt the computer systems at RJ were far beyond those at AGE.

Also, people here are VERY happy.  I have not met anyone who is not.  Compare that to AMEX see AMEX.sux and you will find tons of unhappy employees.  Good luck

As I've said before this child has all the insight of a fifteen year old at her first pep rally.

How in the world would she know if she has received excellent training or not--what does she have to compare it to?

So, dork knob Put why don’t you enlighten us on the training program you have at AMEX???  We have three former AMEX reps here SO I KNOW.  There is no training.  Just a phone and a cube.

Nonsense, the most common thing we hear when hiring them is that they
got extensive sales training, but that they did not like the limitation
on the product line.



The complaints against AEFA are legendary–inappropriate sales and poor performing funds.



But one thing everybody who knows anything about the industry knows is
that it is one of the premier sources of well trained kids who are
prospecting machines.

Is that right, you can be independent and still an employee?

It's not like you can teach them anything about prospecting, since you're a failed planner.

So what's the afternoon movie at the adult day care center, puttyndacrack?

What's the over and under on the IQ it takes to come back with clever repartee like that?

I suspect somewhere around 88, perhaps 87.  Any lower and you wouldn't be able to figure out how to put things on a website, but any higher and you'd be bright enough to grasp the concept known as immaturity.

Since you don't grasp it, I guess you're admitting that your own IQ is somewhere South of the temperature of warm spit.

This is not surprising.

Here Put once ago shows himself as someone emerged in the past who doesn't know anything about the business today.

There is VERY little focus at the real firms (not AMEX) at hiring kids out of college.  With the DO Not Call rules, they are not effective.  Also, guess what??? it is not fair to people to use them, abuse them, and then shove them out the door and take all of their best clients.

See Put, what you Put out in life comes back to you.  Treat people or rookies or clients like sh** and it will all come back and hit you right between the eyes.  Good think you walk around in the dark.

Sweetheart, when you're going to try to say something meaningful it would be best if you linked it to something else.

It is doubtful that what you're saying would make sense in context--it's absolutely ridiculous as a stand alone comment.

Maybeeeee,

You said there's very little focus at "the real firms" for hiring "kids" out of college.

I have about 2 years of work experience and an entrepreneurial career during college selling door-to-door.

I have been offered a FA position with Morgan Stanley. Is this really a great opportunity in terms of training for a new FA?
