Just curious how the job market is in and around corpus? Is it fairly easy to get employment? I'm in Nevada now and the job market sucks. I had some friends move to rockport and try both secured jobs easily in corpus

I have been considering Corpus also.

I look at the job boards often, and there seem to be quite a few jobs. The pay seems low, but I think that's true of most places now.

There are certainly a LOT of customer service jobs, especially in summer. And the jobs, overall, seem to be varied there. Everything from ag to mechanical to restaurants to the hospital and university jobs.

Good luck to you.

Actually, Corpus has a booming economy right now, with the expansion of the Port, as well as the huge oil and natural gas industries. Lots of large companies are building along the port channel, and will only get bigger as time goes on. There are a lot of high paying jobs in those markets as well. You'd be wise to check it out.

Wow, good to know. Over 500 laid off - that hurts. But it also gives me some ideas about what to offer if I decide to pursue buying in the CC area...

Sometimes I wait to see how closely folks read/search things out.

The real number of lay-offs this month Just between Gulf Marine in Aransas Pass and TIC Energy & Chemical Inc., in Freeport, Tx is a little over 1,000.

"The WARN report indicated TIC Energy & Chemical Inc., in Brazoria County, also would lay off 500 people at its Freeport location by the end of the month."

See: Gulf Marine plans layoffs of 554 workers | marcellus.com Scroll to page bottom.

I took a look at Tianjin Pipe - in Gregory- Portland, TX.
TPCO America Corp

Not being too picky for the OP, after all he wanted a "Job", not a "Position", I found this:

That's reality.

Rust is right ,totally practical and in the know ( he and I both miss the old long gone coastal bend sadly and fondly with Walter Furley at noon ) I was born there but left for THE last time 5 years ago and my oldest daughter (22) has finally had it in Aransas Pass and is going back to California realizing coming back to AP was a mistake. Sizzler sure does love it there for sure but sometimes I wonder if we are even talking about the same place ( Sizzler and I ) ?? I am 53 and wouldn't buy anything anywhere at this point in my life and I am in good shape , but I SURE would not buy anything in CC until you've been there awhile in case you DO decide to go . I promise any rental money would not be wasted should you feel the need to vacate asap .

I always buy when I relocate, because of my animals. I have a lot of animals of all kinds. I also don't believe in being where anyone can tell me what to do with my land, so I don't move where there are a lot of rules about how many animals or what kinds you can have or that won't let you irrigate. I usually live out a ways from cities and towns. I don't want anyone in my business. I've never lost money on a house yet. I usually make a lot of money when I sell, which I use to get the next house.

Dutchess CP, I'm wondering why you left CC? AP I didn't like at all, but I liked the area near Rockport and down near Oso Creek.
