    Likely to be comission-based work at best, pyramid scheme or similar at worst. Could also be a dressed-up door-to-door sales gig. Hard to say without any more detail really, but if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

    I agree with Dez, it is more likely commissioned based.
    It's more about your determination and how well you're willing to hit, meet and even exceed your targets.

    luckily there was a reddit post on the front page which related to my question. A **** ton of people signed up to similar positions and you're completely right with the commission/pyramid schemes/door to door.
