Hey everyone, I was thinking about possibly moving to nevada from upstate NY in either Vegas or Reno and I would like to know what the traffic, winters and people are like there?

And how's the part/full time jobs availability so far?

SINCE you are from UPstate NY i think you would like Lake Tahoe MUCH more then Reno or Las Vegas.

Big state, what do you want? Are you tired of snow yet? Then Tahoe may be out, Are you a desert person?

tired of the winters in upstate, want to move to a place where winters are milder, maybe Reno, I also need job too, how's the job market in Reno for minimum wage jobs.

if you want to avoid snow then avoid Tahoe. Reno is a small city not much nature as Tahoe. Mostly strip malls and casinos if that is your thing. The winters in Reno are mild compare to the rest of the areas close by. The higher you go the more snow you will get.

Job market is terrible!!! I think the unemployment rate is 15 percent or close to it. Nevada is also a right to work state. Most employers are laying off then hiring. Casino work is hit or miss but, some of the Casino jobs require a gaming lic/sheriffs card. You must have a clean legal record and good credit to get one. As of recent most companies and casinos are now running credit checks before they hire in NV.

You may want to visit first find the location you find livable and apply and get a job before moving 6000 miles and find out you can't find a home or job.

Thanks for the advice, hopefully this recession ends soon so the job market there won't be so bad.

Reno can get rather chilly with the occasional good dumping of snow. Nothing like upstate NY though. Vegas gets a snowstorm once every 20 years.
