I am in the process of landing a job at Edward Jones. I am curious to find out what type of money a newbie can expect in my first and second year. I am currently looking to open an office in an area that does not have a FA in this particular suburb of a medium size metropolitan area. Another question I have is, if you make it to your final face to face interview, is it safe to assume that the job is yours (assuming that you're not a jacka$$)?? It seems like a lot of time has been invested to make it this far and then to decide not to hire someone. I have been following threads on this board and I am looking for quality answers, not some of the garbage that I've seen on other posts.
