Iím moving to Reno from AZ but the apartments seem expensive, so I was wondering if anyone knows what entry level jobs usually pay starting out?

You said entry level. So what kind of job is entry level at $14 per hour? What kind of job do you want?

In-n-Out pays about $13.

I’m good with doing floor tech stuff I’ve done at the hospital using various machines to get the floors nice. I have training in all sorts of warehouse jobs

Casey - you can find decent entry level jobs that pay above $10/hour. If you do decide to come to Reno, it is best to have a job lined up or at least 6 months worth of funds in the bank ready to use (living expenses). Look into indeed.com or simplyhired in the Reno area. Ignore the City Data "tools" that act "internet" tough & make smart aleck comments.
Good luck to you and I do believe you will enjoy the Reno area:-)

i was in reno this last weekend, saw a billboard stating one of the warehouses (there are quite a few up there) was offering starting pay of $14.

sounds ok, but average rent in reno is over ~$1000. if you get a place outside of reno (like fernley, which is ~30 mins away) your housing costs will be cheaper.

And closer to the warehouse jobs (USA Parkway, Industrial Park out there). Not sure what the rental market is like in Fernley, but it has to be cheaper. Why else would anybody live in that hole?

Don't move here unless you make a lot of money, the cost of living is very high for poor people here due to lack of supply of cheap housing and well the cost of everything is pretty high to be honest
