I am interested in working for Wachovia Securities. I have seen a few openings in my area and am considering applying. I am curious what the training and culture will be because its a bank and not a wirehouse. I know that I want to be a FA but I am having troble picking an organization. I have never worked as a FA and I want to go to a company that will help me succeed. I don't need to advise on "what it takes to make it as an FA" I have done a lot of homework on what the career entails, I need help picking an organization. Just some additional facts about me that might help, I am 25 and I have a baby face(maybe that could have have some influence to where I go). I have graduated from one of the top 50 business schools in the country with a BBA in management. I graduated with a 3.2 overall GPA and a 3.6 in my major, minor in psychololgy. I am very social and out going. I make friends very quickly. I have worked in the restaurant business for almost 10 years supporting myself through school as a waiter and now as a bartender. I am only looking for helpful, informative posts about expieriences at Wachovia in particular but I would also like feedback on some wirehouses as well. I would like to hear from newbies and maybe management level people. I do not want to work for an independent, so if you work for one don't bother posting unless you worked for a big comapny in the past. I want constructive post only. I would like all the info I can get and please as specific as possible. Thank you for your help.
