I am 45 years old and thinking about going to work as an Investment Representative for Edward Jones. I have gone back to college this semester to acquire more knowledge so that I could become a financial advisor. I have been looking at different job prospects and this company offers a great opportunity. I was wondering if there were any retire fools who may have any advice or knowledge regarding ED JONES? I want to add that I have an income from the sale of a business that will last for another 5 years.

My broker is from Edward Jones. I had never heard of the company until he knocked on my door one day several years ago. The company focuses on people who may not normally invest and they take the time to explain fundamental with each client. They have one or two person offices in almost every small town in Michigan. Their philosphy is fairly conservative, buy and hold good stocks forever, which eliminates churning of portfolios. From my experience the company and employees are first class, and can be trusted. I don't think I would say that about too many other brokerages.
