    :woo: :woo: :woo: !

    So I'm having a second gap year, before studies..
    and
    I was wondering if someone could help me, I got a job as a sales membership consultant for a gym and they told me on the phone it's 13k annual a year with + a 6k bonus, but she said you'll make 20k OTE +... and she said it very casually

    So I'm confused, did she mean that I'll get 6k bonus If we hit targets or I'll get 6k bonus regardless of what happens.....?
    Sorry to sound a bit slow, but it's kinda been bugging me and i start on august 17th, I don't wanna be like calling her to ask about money, because I feel it's to forward.....

    If you feel bad about asking, use another fake question first -eg, confirming the starting date.

    I'm sure it means you'll only get the bonus if you hit your sales target.

    you'll have to hit a target to get a bonus to be prepared to live on 13k and anything else is just that, bonus.

    I'm pretty sure it means your bonus is exactly that, a bonus. So if you hit your sales targets etc.

    Congratulations on getting the job!! :party:

    Yeah everyone else is right. OTE is on target earnings. She's saying that you could earn £6k+ bonus per annum if you hit targets. By this it probably means hitting a stretched goal not just a normal goal. I work in a highly target driven position currently, albeit not in sale and this is how it works. If you hit target you'll get X pounds, if you exceed target you'll get X pounds plus more.

    I'd say expect to earn £13k and everything else is what they call it... a bonus.
