Anyhow to the OP, I just got a job offer yesterday , relocation paid, to North Carolina. I will say this much, the further North you go, I believe the greater the chance you won't be hired and likely be the first fired. I've had it happen in Michigan, let's face it, regardless of skill set who's a prudent business owner in MI going to give preference to? a transplanted Floridian or a born and raised in the frozen tundra with snow up to your waistline 4 months outta the year?
As far as I know, her and her daughter were banned, she came back under this name and her daughter Rachael84 came back as pondskater or something like that a few days ago but I think they deleted that account on her.

Well I can imagine if the hiring manager or person doing the interview was jealous of your Florida experience not just work but the fact you lived here, the lifestyle or was a bitter person who did not have any success in moving here or had to leave here under depressing or negative terms, then possibly it might be a rare case.

After the 2000 election fiasco, there was a lot of negative views on Florida in general, many views the residents as plain old "stupid", especially anyone coming from Palm Beach County.

Yeah, too bad they never wanted to admit it was THEIR almost-senile grandparents from elsewhere moving down here that couldn't read the ballots.

I worked in three different states(North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio) after I move from Florida and never got a negative feed back because I worked from Florida. Most of my co workers always talked about how they was go move to Florida. After I'm done with this job in Iowa this year I'm moving back to Florida.

In the Northeast, Florida applicants are looked down on. Especially when they see how cheap they have worked for. At my job there is a daily flood of Florida applicants.

Considering the pettiness, probably a good employer to avoid

Its a sad fact but it tends to be true. Worked in the construction fields up here for years and it seemed that if someone from Florida applied for work they didnt usually get hired. There seemed to be quit a few workers show up in the summer. Mostly roofing guys. Theres a huge difference in the work ethic. I'm not saying thats a good thing or a bad thing but thats how it was. Not sure how it is now.

How so? My husband worked in Fla for almost 10 years before we had moved to NH and he got hired no problems at all. Infact he had two PD's fighting over him for quite a few months before he chose one...maybe you're in the wrong field

OK, I think I know where the OP is going with this. Kinda. Florida's education system was for a LONG TIME considered one of the worst in the nation. Due to that reason, alot of employers did not want to have offices in Florida, because they felt the population to be somewhat lacking (I say F-that, cuz we sure can drink and swim....but I digress) anywho. My personal experience has been that when I LEFT FLORIDA, I DOUBLED MY PAY. All With no college degree. I don't see how you transplants would have trouble moving back north or west, with Florida on your resume. I had no problem finding a job in Maryland - one of the most educated states in the nation, after leaving Florida.
