When you’re the fifth person to quit at a company in just a month, you know it’s a sinking ship.
Companies with high turnover rates should make any prospective job-seeker run for the hills. When your business can only retain employees for a few months, it might appear at first that the individual isn’t cut out for the job. But when lots and lots of people rush out the door after just a few months, it’s definitely more of a problem with the company itself.
Of course, you can’t really tell how high turnover is when you’re just interviewing. So you end up like this person, who shared their story to r/MaliciousCompliance. They took this job only to discover their boss hated them, and that five employees left in just three weeks. The red flags could not be waving any harder. With high turnover comes lack of expertise, and that can be frustrating for the remaining employees. The more people that quit, the more work there is to be piled onto the remaining employees’ shoulders. It’s a self-reinforcing cycle that leads to constant quitting.
