Always Hiring


For years T-Mobile had signs or banners outside their Cordata call center advertising open positions. It seems they had such a consistent high rate of employee turnover that they needed a permanent Now Hiring sign outside. The sign reads “Now Hiring” but the message I think it really sends is “The position you are considering applying for has churned through a lot of previous employees. You are officially warned.”

Unless you are undergoing some form of rapid expansion, if you ever have to install a permanent “Now Hiring” sign outside your office there’s probably something in your company that needs to be fixed.

    I completely agree. I hadn’t even thought about the implications of a permanent sign – no one expands that quickly. Yikes… their turnover must be high. =(
