Default Entry level job market

I'm looking into relocating to New Mexico in the coming months and I was curious as to the job market for entry level positions. I do not have any education beyond my diploma. Over the last 5 years I've been a grocery story clerk for 2 years, a natural food vendor for one, and most recently the assistant manager of a gas station for the previous 2 years. I know, nothing glamorous, but it pays the bills. I was curious as to how the job market is for entry level positions possibly pertaining to retail/customer service. Are there many openings to be found? Essentially all the threads I've looked through have pertained to professional fields. I'd like to know how I'll fare finding work before I pack up and move. Thanks in advance!

I don't know about the job market for the jobs you are describing, but it has been discussed a bit on this thread: Abq jobs with no degree?

There are quite a few call centers here. You would need to contact other companies directly for job openings. Some grocery store chains here are Albertsons, Smiths, and Whole Foods. I have a friend who works for Frito Lay here, so you could look into them or similar companies. There are also possibilities to explore such as Netflix (they recently had a full time position posted for Albuquerque that paid fairly well), etc. Good luck to you!

I don't know anyone who is willing to take those types of jobs who is unemployed or had any trouble finding or getting them. 100% anecdotal, but that's what I got.
