I don't have a question, just something for your amusement:

I started a new job mid-June and in a group of five, two have already quit.

It is being spun to me as "increased opportunity"

yay

Increased opportunity to work more hours for the same pay and an excuse that there will be no promotion or raise next year due to an incoming recession.

In my group 3 have left in the last 3 weeks. In two cases it was to accept a promotion to a higher position in our organization, the third was recruited by a local startup. In addition, 3 that we work with have left our Accounting department in that same time period, 1 retiring and two for promotions to higher positions within the organization. HR is swamped with job openings.

It's your breath. None of them wanted to tell you.

It happens. New hires are often done because a company/department is falling apart or people are known to be moving on.

Might be a sign of something, might just be crazy timing.

Why have they quit? It may be an increased opportunity for you. People who stick around in high turnover environments stand a better chance of getting promoted if the company promotes from within.

So they last a bit over a week? What type of work? This happens a lot in call center type jobs.

It’s happening everywhere. And the places it doesn’t happen (which are properly managed with good morale and career growth ) have limited to no job openings. Workplace dumps with high turnover and lousy management are a dime a dozen these days

Actually the two who quit were longtime employees. So there's that. But it's a tiny tiny group and the processes are a bit antiquated. I'm so hoping they bring in people soon...or there WILL be very high turnover...
