Hello Everyone,

Moved from Virginia to get out of a bad situation and decided to move to hot San Antonio, TX! (boy it's hot down here!).

While going on Indeed, Glassdoor, etc, I thought I'd get your thoughts about your experiences from a SA, TX perspective. In your opinion, what good companies are out here?

I went for the big boys so far (Valero, Tesoro, USAA, Rackspace, etc), and I just got a response from CPS Energy (Application is in 'Considering' state - not even sure if that's going to lead to an interview).

thanks and hope I get to meet some cool friends here.

Mr. Ben

In what field are you trying to find work? What's your experience and education in? I'm sorry to tell you this, but it's really not that hot yet. It's been surprisingly cool so far, or maybe there's just something wrong with me this year. The humidity must not be that bad. Wait until July and August.

I was a manager for a consulting firm that dealt with IT business strategies (streamlining efficiencies, gap analysis; six sigma green belt stuff) to even product management.

Yes, for me, it's very very HOT! I'm already melting as I type!

It is already disgustingly hot. I didn't realize. I've been staying inside, making my kids take the dogs out. They said it was hot but they are complainers so I didn't pay much attention. Then I had no choice but to go out for some things. Ugh! My car couldn't even cool off in the 15 minutes it took me to get to my destination. I came home with a migraine starting.

I was going to get a summer job, then I just ramped up my self-employment stuff instead, threw it into overdrive and decided nah, I'm good. No need to drive to and from some place every day this summer!

To the OP:

Some will disagree with me, but keep an eye on Craigslist. I know that it varies by state and in some states it is useless but I've found jobs there more than once, even through temp agencies, "temp to hire" work, it's still been moderately useful for me in the past. Good luck on your search!

You might try Accenture.

Accenture | Management Consulting, Technology and Outsourcing

Of course, keep your humor low key during your interview as your name on this forum isn't funny.

BTW: Wait until it gets over 100 degrees (I've seen 111 here).

Migraines are my best friend as well. I'm fixing to buy this home right now (as I stay in these dreaded apartments while I use some petty cash I saved), but I gotta tell ya: It's still hot!

I will hope that one day I will achieve my own business, but first I have to settle in SA. Once things are going, then I'll move on.

I'm more of a work-from-home-then-travel-alot kind of guy. I just had to leave my exwife..terrible situation..long story. But then again, I probably won't be able to find a woman that will accept my traveling to and from...and I don't want to be single forever (although I'm enjoying it at the moment)

So many latin women here, wow.

Oh heck, don't be so sure. I have a spouse who shares my wanderlust. Kids too. All of us are absolutely nomads at heart! We're out there! I'd rather travel than have any other material stuff you could name. Even if it is road trips and camping, it's better than staying put, to me!

If you're settling for a bit, it's a cheap(relatively) place to do it at least! Well, before you factor in the AC electric bill.
