3 easy payments of $29.95 plus, errrr I mean minus, shipping and handling.
Ookay. Looks like some people drank some funny juice today. Can someone please come doen to earth, and give me a serious answer.
If any firm was in the practice of giving that type of info out over the firm I would. But I’m hoping one of you good people out here can give me the scoop. That’s what these boards are for right?
Maybe $30-40k? Not sure, but somewhere in that neighborhood, I would believe. I don't correspond much with trainees, so my insight is limited.
....But it could be more than eleventy kabillion dollars. Who knows, but it would be safe to assume it is more like the first option.
then call your local branch manager and set up an interview. If you pass that test THEN you will get an offer package. Houston offer could be different from a St. Louis one.

Ok, here’s a serious answer. In just about any legitimate training program you will get enough $$ to pay your bills if you are single or married w/o kids, and as long as your expenses are within control. This number will generally be adjusted if you live in a high cost of living area or if you have a successful track record of sales in a related/similar field. Too, I’ve heard of Merrill and other ‘bigs’ paying some big bucks(for trainees) for attorneys and CPA’s making a career change, because of their contacts and credibility. I’ve heard of six-figure packages in that case.
You will rarely get anything substantial because the firms want you to work hard build your business quickly and be eager to get on commission. They want you to be a little ‘hungry’. As long as you’re on salary you are largely an expense, not a profit center.
Hope that helps. There’s no specific numbers attached because that varies widely based upon your experience, the firm’s policy, the branch manager’s preference and your local cost of living. Best strategy is to proceed with the interview until they give you something you can evaluate. At this point I’m presuming you don’t even know if you’re getting an offer.
I think salary would be about $30 to $40k. But, be careful. They do not want people who are focused on SALARY. This is a sales job and you can not be afraid to work for commission.
I enjoyed the use of the company “Beemer” while I was in training. And the spinning hubcaps were a nice touch! It made a good impression when I conducted my marketing survey door-to-door.
