Company keeps listing same job once every year
Im always looking at the job market and have noticed in the last 3 yrs the same company advertises the same junior and senior cisco network engineer position at least 1 or 2 times a yr. I wanted to apply 3 yrs back but didnt have the experience now I do and the job description sounds great but Im trying to look at it with the glass half full and hoping the last hires were promoted. Is the frequent job posting an instant red flag of a high turnover rate of ppl leaving or getting fired.
What does glassdoor say about the company?
I know my company constantly has the same set of positions open and for most of the positions, its just because we are constantly growing and need additional staff.
Now the higher up the chain you go, the more assured you can be that its not due to company growth, promotions and the like. If a company is looking for a new CTO, VP or even director every 6 months you can probably safely assume its due to high turnover.

Like others have said, there could be a lot of reasons why the position keeps coming available.
1) Good growth
2) Lots of internal promotion opportunities
3) Crappy work environment with lots of turnover
4) Not finding good candidates so they leave the position unfilled and try again later or use external staffing
5) It's a good environment, but people leave for other opportunities because they hit their cap after a couple of years (describes where I work now).
