Anyone else keep an eye on the job postings page? Seems like an unusually high amount of management positions in the field that are vacant. A lot of good leaders jumping ship before she sinks!

Lol what does a GDT actually really do oh I know, regurgitate information that we all ready know. They don’t have direct reports or a cost center. All they are is a backup so the GM can stay drunk and not have to be responsible. Funny how NO other class 1 have a GDTs. Plus non of them could actually run a terminal if they had to.
I do know come Q-1 the GDT and AVP positions are going to be slashed due to the fact they are compensated too high for the little responsibility & work they do.
The cat's out of the bag. You can get paid more and work less elsewhere. When Superintendents, GDTs, & Directors get paid like NFL kickers to blast emails from home while the bottom level managers are forced to work 60+ hours a week and denied vacation it's a no brainer why people are looking for an out.
Agree, BNSF used to have the best talent in the industry but much of their talent left the company in the last couple of years.
