Devil What the EK?

Is it just me, or are there an extrordinary number of guys resigning from EK. It seems every second person I speak to is resigning or just about to. I know it is a popular time of year, but do they know something we don't?

Kinda reminds me of when I was a kid at the dinner table and Ma would say "eat all yer food! There's kids starvin' in Africa!"

it got kinda quiet when I retorted: "Oh yeah? Name two!"

That's the way it has always been done...only a few will show on the portal and the other names will be blocked. The only people who know the real number are HR and the guys working at DNATA Cargo can also access the real numbers.

As of March 31st, there are two guys resigning (yesterday's check).
It might as well be the case of not advertising RGs.

MrMachfivepointfive, you missed D.K. and K.P., both going at the end of May, a nanofart after the bonus (if any) is (usually) paid.

Lots!!!! There's probably well over a couple of thousand. Of course there will be guys that don't have the required experience, but wait and see.

The pilot at the bottom of the March 2007 list is now 53 places higher today.
I agree that this is not a big number but I am curious to compare the list again in a few months. I feel there will be a considerable increase in numbers
