The people on here have been very helpful by answering all of my questions.I learned alot about phoenix just by reading the new post. The other day I ran into an old friend that just moved back to Fl from the Yuma area he said it was alright living there and he will be moving back after he takes care of some personal family business. Okay I am asking for help one more time from you guys and girls. Question is and I hate asking these kind of question but I need to know how most people feel so here it is What area would be more race friendly phoenix or yuma. Will it be easy to find work in yuma as a cook or auto sales position. Can I find a two bedroom apartment there for around $650 no more than $800 a month. Thanks

I don't know what race you are but I don't see a race problem in Yuma. We are over half Hispanic, most of the blacks are military (widely loved), and I'll bet half our docs are Asian. I'm going to say Yuma'd be a good place for a cook because we've got a bizillion restaurants per capita. Honestly, I don't know the figure but it's always touted as high. There isn't a heck of a lot of nitelife here, so eating out is big, even among families of modest means. Marines obviously like an alternative to the mess hall and the snowbirds are here now packing the popular restaurants. Yuma sells a LOT of cars for a small town and the good salespeople make buckets of money, but I don't know how easy those jobs are to come by as most of the dealerships are family-owned. Marry in? I know a gal at work pays $700/month for a one bedroom apt in a nice complex so is moving to a not-so-nice complex.

Yuma is a great pit stop between Phoenix and San Diego (hence the many restaurants).

There is also a bit of interesting history in Yuma.

I don't know where to find employment online for Yuma, sorry.

You should do just fine in Yuma.. PLENTY of jobs for cooks as a poster mentoined resaurants are big there. Apartments are pretty cheap and I am almost positve you'll find something in your budget. As for the race question I think you'll be fine too. I never saw any racial tension there.

Good luck!

I am a teacher in Yuma. I do have to warn you that many teachers in this town aren't happy. Very few schools here have mentoring programs for first year teachers. My first year of teaching I was given the key to my classroom and expected to know everything. Teachers aren't supported here. I actually temporarily lost my health insurance because of a problem with my certification that I was unaware of. Also, teacher pay here in Yuma is lower than many parts of Arizona. If you do decide to move to Yuma, do not take a teaching job in Somerton. Somerton is 10 miles from the Mexican border. When I worked there, my students would tell me that they would misbehave because I was white and didn't speak Spanish. My principal did nothing about it.
