Just finished off my door knocking survey for Edward Jones  - it went well, although I froze my ass off! Does EDJ call the people I surveyed?  Hope not… don’t want to seem like more of a tool than they think I am after knocking on their door in freezing weather.  Thanks in advance!

They won't check up on you. ... And you have to be positive about it -- you knocked on their doors to introduce yourself so that you can help them manage their investments someday. Some people are going to appreciate that, especially that you did it in adverse conditions.

Thanks … I had great conversations and a bunch of people invited me inside.  It was just COLD.

The guy who interviewed me, looked at them for about 30 seconds and gave them back to me

My interviewer took them and sent them to Saint Louis, but there were no follow-up calls that I'm aware of.  If so, I'm assuming they went well.  I was offered a position the day after my interview, which was only two days after I conducted the survey.

Good job in getting them done.  Good luck!

My feedback is about the same as the other fellas so far, no checkup, barely looked at them.  Be prepared to answer some questions about the knocking though.  how it went, how people reacted, can you see yourself doing this for 2 years, stuff like that.

  good luck

The whole purpose of having you complete those surveys isn't really for Jones...It's to let you see what it feels like to knock on stranger's doors and have a conversation.  They won't ever "check up on you"...But you should definately realize that that will be the next 1-3 years of your working life...so you better make sure you don't mind doing it.

Good Luck!

Thanks everyone!

Any insight into what if any math is on the series 7?  It’s never been my strongest area.

Bogjam follow the recipe. You will be OK. Do what they tell you to do and you will pass the test. Work hard 10 hrs a day and you will do fine. Use the info they give you and follow the schedule. They have trained so many people to pass. I hear of people using other peoples study guides and books from other sources. Just follow what they tell you to do and you will pass.

Good luck
