Can anyone tell me how available jobs are for plentywood and the surrounding area? I know the best option is to "bring your own". I'm looking at a house to buy, and am stuck at how far we would have to drive for work. I've been to Billings, but not plentywood. I'm planning a trip up but would like to have a coushin($$) if i get caught in snow. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't think we have anybody that lives in that immediate area. Give it a few days as there may be some folks that travel that area and can give some insight.

Well....
What kind of work are you looking for. Everyone who can drive a truck or turn a wrench has gone to Williston ND>
I travel in the medical field so I am not directly in that area but in EM distance that is long is really short in folks talking.

If you are a CNA check here.
Sheridan Memorial Hospital Association
I hear they are always hiring, and you know the level of work in a care facility.
Good luck. Truckers are needed for lots of things, try this site.

Cost of living is reasonable, but it this oil work continues in ND and it advances here things will change.
I worked with some ND gals last month and they say McD's is paying 15 an hour just because everyone has gone to work in the oil fields, of course the cost of living has risen to meet that salary.
I will keep checking in on you. Welcome and stop by the let's visit thread.

I'm not from Plentywood (I'm from the Circle area), but my boyfriend is from Scobey, and you're right, that you pretty much bring your own work. Most of our area is farming/ranching, but I'm sure nursing homes or hospitals are always on the lookout for good, hard-working individuals. Good luck!

So most likely I could work in Plentywood at a nursing home but my husband would have to go to Williston, ND to work. Not too bad. Keep em comin. Thanks
