They found they had more time on their hands once done with recruiting, mentoring, volunteering, training, prospecting,  starting from scratch every month, regional meetings?????

How do you keep reinventing yourself only to get recognized again and kicked off again?

The blinders fell off... I can't help that.  And the 14 calls a week from recruiters helped.

Don't forget getting the calls from seg 5 people who were given a 100 million dollars book to motivate you and threaten you to bring up your numbers.

OMG!  I want to hurl when I hear these clowns
speak at meetings.  They are held up on a pedistal (sp).  And
they are leading the region in the future.  Just another reason to
run (and go after their clients!)!

This is the kind of BS that will chase you away from the cult faster than the lack of product, 1980's technology and no email

Jonesescapee-
Have you ever noticed that the word cult is the root word of culture. Anyone else catch the significance?
The "culture" of EDJ is what makes it so remarkable. I think I am having a zen moment. Time for a cold one.

Amazing that I was one of those Segment 5 IR's that was always asked to call those people.  I always wondered what am I going to say to a struggling Segment 1 or 2.  That was weird.

In our region it wasn't about...call that guy he's "struggling" (used to be in our day RED was the word) help him out. Our RL was all about his report card lookin good, so my rep was one of the mentors whose job it was to "fix him -OR- kill him".
In other words convince him he's washed up and  he'll never make it, so he'd either pack it in or apply at the bank or Charles Schwab.  I think this is Rankstocks job in his region too....."looser/can't make it/working from your home or a bank etc"

I found this website, read it for a few weeks, and then hated the firm.  I had the proverbial paradigm shift and left the cult a few months later.  I refused to stay on as a sharecropper clone like the rest of the drones.  This website breeds haters it doesn't just attract them.

I knew from midway through KYC week that Jones was a horrible firm...

And thankfully got the hell out of their while I still could.

I was tasked with "mentoring" several IRs.  What always killed me was that we were to help thes people, so that EDJ wasn't forced to "counsel them out of the business". 
That euphamism always killed me.
