I'm planning to relocate to the danville area (or within a half hour or so of dville) at the end of the summer. The reason is a long story but I'd like some local input on things. I currently drive medical transports but I've literally done every job under the sun. I'm trying to get into Halliburton in Montgomery but if that falls through, what other big companies are in the area? Besides geisinger obviously Thanks!

4 Things are just a little off here. 1) It's not practical to move to an area without a job lined up. 2) Your current job and your vast past experience indicates you really need to be specialized in a particular field to get a reasonable livable salary. 3) Most large companies use Temp. Services and the chances of being hired on is, well, not spectacular being you're not specialized. 4) Why move to an area that is employment challenged and is an overall crap hole??? You will regret this move.

I second bloom. Danville and the surrounding area, really all of Columbia and Montour County, is decidedly NOT a crap area. Its a gorgeous rural area with good schools, plenty of outdoor activities and two very good postsecondary institutions within 30 minutes of each other: Bucknell and Bloomsburg.

As far as employers go you have Del Monte Foods, Bloomsburg University, Kawneer, Wise Foods, Autoneum, DT Distribution Center, PPL and Berwick Area School District.

As much as it pains me to do so I do have to agree with Cpt. Trips that you should have a job lined up before you move here.

Good luck!!

I'm not local to the area. I spent a week there while my mother was being treated after taking a fall while visiting relatives in the area. She was treated at the huge regional hospital there, so you might want to look into that for employment.

It seemed like a decent place, although it is rather rural, so if you need urbanness, it's not the place for you.

OK.......Anyone want to bet the OP has difficulty finding a job and out of necessity ends up doing temp work in WB???? And yes, Danville is a rather nice area, but based on the qualifications listed, I'm pretty certain where this person will eventually reside.
