Lightbulb Jobs in St. Johnsbury?

I am moving to St. Johnsbury the first week of May and wanted to know from any locals if any of the local businesses are hiring. I a have checked the newspaper and the job web sites but there arent that many. I know jobs are hard to find all over, but was wondering if some of the businesses just put signs in their windows about jobs instead of posting them. Kind of like they used to do before we "advanced". Thanks for any information you can give me. We have one car and I am trying to find a job there in town just in case one of us gets a job out of town. Thanks again for any info you can give me.

Look in the papers, otherwise you'll have to pound the pavement when you get there. The economy is bad everywhere right now so finding a job may not be easy. When you get there, check in the unemployment office (I think it's on Eastern Avenue) and check the job listings there.
What kind of job are you looking for?
Good luck!

I plan to do that. One part of me is excited to be making a new start and the other part of me is freaked out. Of course any change causes those feelings. Thanks for the info about the unemployment office there. I will definately check it out. I am looking for any job I can get. Cleaning, cooking, sales/retail, anything. Most of my experience has been in Custodial so that is what I tend to look for first, but I have contacted a few of the local businesses there to see if they are hiring. Have got a couple of check with us when you get here, so that is good. Just gettnig anxious to have one so I can start as soon as possible. I have only been out of work once in the last 10-11 years, and that was only for a year because the ex was making enough for me to stay home with the kids. So being without a job scares the crap out of me. I keep looking and praying. I always say "things will work out, maybe not how you want, but they do work out". Haha.

Just a heads up that when you arrive in St J hit the ground running because the state correctional facility there, barring some last minute reprieve, is due to be shut down which will very much impact an area already hit hard by job losses as well the overall lack of options due to it's somewhat remote location. Not much better over the river in NH as I know someone who works over in Littleton, but you may want to expand your search definitely on both sides of the river.

Good point about the prison. I forgot about that!
When you get there, check the Academy to see if they have any openings. Also Price Chopper or White's Market (grocery stores). There is always the Green Mountain Mall (don't get too excited-its only got about 10 stores) with JC Penney and Ocean State Job Lot. Lyndon State College is up hte road in Lyndonville. Other ideas are the Hospital (Northeastern Vermont Regional) or the various fast food/pizza places (McDonald's, Pizza Hut, KFC/Taco Bell, St. J House of Pizza to name a couple).
Good luck!
