I guess the title is self explanatory, but I'm looking for some feedback from others on the forum. I know there is a lot of Jones bashing here, but I know there are a few people that currently work for them or have in the past with some success.There are a lot of things I like about EDJ. The primary thing I like is the single broker branch offices. I work much better in that kind of enviroment. I also don't think there are too many other firms that would take a flyer on a guy in his mid to late 30s looking to make a career change with no real experience in the financial services industry. They have a solid reputation and seem to score well with customer and employee satisfaction, although I know many people think those numbers are rigged.There is one thing that I am skeptical about, and that's the door knocking. EDJ appears to make this their primary source of client generation. As most of you know part of the interview process consisted of a door knocking survey activity. The area I will be working in is the 3rd wealthiest county in the country. I have no problem door knocking small businesses, in fact I wouldn't approach them any other way. I met some definite small business prospects just doing the survey activity. It is the residences that I am most skeptical about. The area that I would be working is a Washington DC/Baltimore bedroom communitty. Nobody is home until about 7PM, and then they are having dinner with their families. I don't know how comfortable these people will be discussing finances on their front porch, and in this day and age I don't see too many people inviting me into the home for a discussion. There are some 55 and over communitties in the area, but they have strict no soliciting policies.I'm sure EDJ will teach me some of the nuances of door knocking during my training, but my question to the more experienced people on the forum is, does it really work in a densely populated area with professional clientele? Is EDJ open to other prospecting methods such as seminars, cold calling from qualified lists, and local advertising?I am financially prepared to not earn a lot of money for the first year, and possibly the second, but by year three I really need to be on the ground running. If I am meeting my targets set by EDJ is that possible? According to their salary calculator it is, but I have heard that the calculator is far from accurate.Any feedback would be appreciatted.
