I've recently gotten an interview in software with a company who notoriously has the highest turnover rate in the career field.
The reason the company is notorious for this is because they have a record of executive-imposed firing the bottom 'x' performers every so often. To my knowledge, this practice is still in effect.
The natural response of this for managers who like their team is to hire people, and them fire them a short while later in order to fulfil these quotas. This practice is well-known in the industry, and there is no doubt that it's going to be a requirement for the position I'm interviewing for.
Given that I want to take the position at all costs (walking away is strictly not an option), in my interview, how do I address this? Obviously I don't want to be another employment statistic in the high turnover rate. Is there any sort of guarantee that can be had or given to help against this? What information pertaining to this statistic is necessary to know going into the job?
