Hi everyone! Ok, so we moved to Richmond about three weeks ago and still haven't found a job. We had a couple leads before we moved here, so thought certain we wouldn't have a problem. However, they haven't panned out and money is, well, almost non existent at this point. So, my question is, where is the best place to find a job?! We've tried newspapers and online, but where else can we go? He works construction mostly, but can do a number of things. I just need something part time so I can go to school. Any suggestions are very much appreciated!!!


Thanks!!

I would recommend going to the temporary agencies in town. There is one right next to the bypass onto I-75 (by the motel) on the right. Can't remember the name, sorry!

Many times they can get you a job and most times they have temporary to permanent as well. Your hubby might try applying at the factories if he's interested... they generally pay pretty well and there are quite a few between Richmond and Berea combined.

Also, you may want to go down to the Employment Office. They have a listing of available jobs and can give you all the details once you go up there.

Hope any of these suggestions help you. Good luck and welcome to Kentucky!

Also, hrmm... if he drives tow trucks or works on cars.... he may want to go over to the Citgo station on Irvine Street (right behind Main street Dollar Store). My husbands uncle David Burns owns the station and towing company. I know many times he needs good, dependable people and it's pretty easy work really.

Tell him he can also check at Tuffy's garage (right next to O'Reilly's Auto Parts on Big Hill Avenue) it's on the back-side of the taxi company. He may have suggestions as well. He's my husbands brother, Tuffy Burns. Don't know if he can help, but some folks in the shop may have suggestions... they all know everyone within a 30 mile radius practically!

Has your hubby contacted Bob Hager/ Hager cabinets? It's located behind Big Lots on the Eastern By-Pass. Hager does tons of building in the area, and usually has openings. I would also suggest he check around some of the newer subdivisions being built, and talk to some of the builders there. They are pretty easy to spot-look for trucks or vans with a name on the side. There is also EKU, which has many positions open (EKU Home). Not the greatest pay, but good benefits. There is also a job referral service in the unemployment/vocation rehab office on Keenland Drive. Go out the Robert Martin By-Pass, make a left beside Hardees, and go about a mile. It will be a brick building on your left, right past the board of education building, which will be on your right. The good thing about using the job bank is you apply right there on a computer, get a referral, and usually an interview in the same day. Many of the factories use this to hire from.

Several of the stores around are hiring for part-time help. Almost all the gas stations are in need of cashiers. You may want to also check in the Richmond Mall, as the stores in there seem to be constantly short-handed. Krogers is also a good place to put in for a part time job, as is Wal Mart.

I'm so glad you are enjoying Richmond! If there's anything I can help with, or point you toward, give me a yell.

All the best,
~joanna~

Thanks Joanna!

He has an interview Monday morning at 7:30 am, and it sounds very promising! I'm so excited! School is going well and my four year old got into the Pre-K program today, so things are looking up!

Thanks again!
