Edward Jonesdoor to door sales in neighbood

The manager of that office came to my neighborhood going from house to house trying to drum up business.

I would expect Avon reps, deliveries from UPS, Fedex or US mail, family and friends, and even children with school fund raising material etc to show up at my door, but I never expected to see a person representing an investment company show up at our door without an appointment.

In my opinion, this is short of panhandling/socilitation.

    For what it's worth from a happily EX EJ door-2-door salesman, I could never, ever get over the fact that this 90 year old company had to base its primary marketing efforts to (choking back the bile) door-knocking. They trained us rigorously to knock on 125-160 door per day, 6 days a week for the first 2-4 years to build "their" book of accounts. The "creep factor" to doing this required much courage and stamina on the part of the suit-wearing salesperson. People would often ask me, "What church are you from?" or "Are you running for office?" Nauseating.

    Edward Jones is an unethical company who has no problem taking advantage of low income retirees.
