    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time (More than 10 years)


    Complete focus on the client with respect to goals, risk tolerance and clarity around both performance and costs. The long term investment philosophy with a focus on investor education and engagement makes a big difference in client attraction and retention. The company manages well over $1T dollars and it doesn’t happen by acquiring competitors, but an organic growth structure and training infrastucture that attracts intelligent, hard working people.


    The role of a Financial Advisor at any firm is extremely hard work. This is no exception. Even with industry leading training at EJ this career isn’t for everyone. It’s easy to say you want to be a Financial Advisor, but the rubber hits the road when you need to demonstrate value to a potential client, work long hours (especially early on) and develop a resolve to never quite when it gets tough. We need more Canadian’s to investigate just how good we are vs the competition as both a great employer and as a client.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Maintain the strong focus on both leadership development and attracting the best Financial Advisors. Fortune Magazine and JD Power awards year after year are a sign that the efforts to help both our associates and our clients are paying off. Thank you for building and maintaining an organization for clients, not public shareholders.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Etobicoke, ON

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Edward Jones (Etobicoke, ON).


    I applied for the position online and received an email from the HR recruiter to schedule a phone interview. The HR recruiter was crass and did not seem like she even read my resume. She also informed me of a company policy that I had to move my investments to EJ if I was hired. I ended the interview right there, and I'm not even sure if that's legal.
