In terms of jobs, there has been some openings at NY Air Brake and Stream. I'm not sure if the Air Freshener Company has openings, but it may be an option. There may be some jobs related to Fort Drum as well. I believe that the Fulton Companies in Pulaski has some openings too. Cant forget Samaritan, Carthage and Alex Bay Hospitals, along with Jefferson Community College. What kind of work are you looking for? Here's a list of openings in the area: Jobs in Watertown, NY - Indeed Mobile

Here are a few trucking jobs, which I think you were looking for before: Trucking jobs in Watertown, NY - Indeed Mobile

It isn't a bad area and it is actually growing due to the expansion of Fort Drum. There have been some changes even since I left the area in 2003. If you like the outdoors, winter activities and slower pace of life, then you should be fine.

Default how bad is the watertown winter?

Seriously though, just how bad are the winters?
I grew up in Kingston back in the 70's so am familiar with tons of snow.
However, for the last decade or so I've been in the south, so have become very accustomed to the warm weather.
I definitely recall some horrendous drives through Syracuse up to Watertown, but it all seemed to dissipate quite quickly after Lake Oneida.
So just wondering how bad is it in Watertown, say how many inches on a bad day?
How fast do the roads get ploughed, particularly if you're out a little ways along 11?
Thank!

It seemed to be colder up there versus the higher snowfall totals you get in Oswego County due to the lake effect snow there. It can still come down though. Usually, the roads get plowed in a timely manner and the area of Route 11 you will live by, opens up with 2 lanes on each side, if I'm not mistaken. You may even be able to get on I-81 North at the Watertown Center exit/on ramp to the Arsenal Street exit to get to the bulk of the shopping in the area. Hopefully, this helps.
