What does "entry-level" mean in a job description?

For example, I was looking at a medical receptionist job position and it says its an entry level position. Does this mean that I could apply since I have no experience as a receptionist?

Yes you could. Entry level is where you learn from the bottom up. From entry level you can move upwards. Just let them know that you are more than capable of helping people, have a strong desire to help the company grow and are willing to go above and beyond what is expected. Good luck and Peace.

You are correct, 'entry level' means no experience is needed or expected but the pay will be low.

it means they want someone with no experience whom they can mold into what they want and pay you hardly nothing. it could also mean they have a room full of managers and they need a gopher and they are too cheap to pay for an experienced person.
