I too have been looking for the Presque Isle, Caribou area. There is lots of work in the medical field...but finding it hard to find general labor or factory type work in the area. Do they just not advertise through the internet? DH will need something until an opening is available at the company making signs or metal fabrication.

There is little to no general labor or "factory type" work there.

Actually there are lots of "general labor" jobs, but you are right that there are almost zero factor jobs.
