Hey Everyone!

I am set to join EJ in 2 weeks. I have 3 years experience as an investment advisor. Unfortunately, my licenses expired after I joined the US Army as a commissioned officer back in 2011. 

I am looking forward to gaining some insightful information from this forum as well as providing some of my own as well!

The AH lead generation service. The next lead goes directly to luvindy.

It's this.

The AH Bux program was suspended when we quit doing the Saturday BBQ Promo.

I think I still have a BBQ set in my garage from that ridiculous time in my life. I remember how much I fucking hated that. That felt like the low point in my advisory career. Some RL or Growth Coordinator or someone telling us "you have to sign in, and if you don't, you're gonna get a call from the home office."

I was like WTF, am I 16? Go fuck yourself. That was my first year, and I knew at that point that I had made a mistake and was not staying with Jones.

Yup.  I've made a terrible mistake.

I guess it's different when you're in my area.  Home office used to make a big deal out of those days back when we were dialing for dollars.  All of the STL regions would go to North Campus and make phone calls from the many training rooms there.  Then they'd have BBQ catered in for lunch.  New FAs actually made phone calls while the vets sat around and did a lot of looking busy.  It wasn't bad. 
They don't do that anymore.  We're all supposed to go to our offices and sign in so the region gets some sort of credit and therefore $$ for a certain % of participation.  Lame.

I actually liked the Shamrock Saturday promos back in the day. Jack Cahill, an excellent FA and my trainer leader as a newbie, would dress up as a leprechaun and dance around the home office cracking jokes and motivating the sales force. He was a genuine great guy, unlike the brainwashed clone GPs we have now.
Good luck and good selling.

Spiff and Beeks, you just clearly illustrated exactly why I needed out.

Maybe it was my background. I just could never get into rah-rah bullshit at work. I don't need pom-pom's and adults dressed up in Halloween costumes to get me motivated. Nor do I need to sign in to work. I haven't punched a clock since 1993. I wasn't planning to start.

Same.

And I always hated working on a team. Always carried losers on my back.

Understandable. And I don’t disagree with you. It’s all really gay AF. Punching a clock eh? Maybe you need a therapist to work out your lingering anger toward the firm.
Good luck and good selling.

I loved how market movements or clients' best interest be damned, people would sit on rollover checks so they could enter trades on those promo days to win a prize, or similarly on the last Wednesday of the month if they had a good month so they could pad the following month and get off to a good start.

Nah, at the time I needed a therapist to keep from punching Tom Bartow in the face. Little Napoleon rat fuck. "Excuse me, I don't think I heard you ask for the order". Angry

Now I just laugh at the joke that is Jones.

I'm the opposite - always loved being on a team.  Except I was always the leader/captain. Which is why I was always a horrible employee

Did Matt Doran hire you? He was the only legit guy I met there from the home office. He started pushing fee based hard and they put him in charge of armed forces recruiting.
