I came across a "customer service and sales adviser" job vacancy (which is supposed to be direct marketing) online, and for the pay it says "From £15,000 to £25,000 per annum OTE". does this mean I get a basic salary ranging from £15,000 to £25,000 with commission (OTE) included, or does it mean it's commission only.
On Target Earnings
You will be set a sales target, with commision. If you hit your target, this is what you will earn. You will probably get £15k salary with the rest as commission.
In reality, with an OTE of £25k, you'd have to be a god among salespeople to hit that, in which case, this is beneath you
