It's not a sales job but the company are struggling. My job is a one off. The other person I mentioned doing a reactive role earns more than for for a simple admin role. I found this out recently. It just seems unfair that they can implement this without warning. I'm not even a high flier!! Not even paid lots.

What kind of job do you do? Have you had a meeting with your manager to discuss why they have implemented this? Also have you discussed with your manager that you don't feel the targets are realistic, and why, and asked what would happen if you don't reach them? I work in HR and I always say to managers, it depends if the targets are fair - managers can set targets for their team members BUT, they have to be realistic for the role taking everything into account and consistent with others in the team that do the same role.

I started a job just over a year ago. Now the company have given me targets, all new to me, which aren't realistic. They ignore the fact that there is only so much I can do and much depends on the actions of others. Also, they have not said what will happen if I don't reach the targets. I have had no pay increase and get paid less than someone who has an easier reactive job. Can they do this?
