My boyfriend and I are working on getting jobs before moving down to Florida. We both have interviews coming up in Belle Glade, but they will be phone interviews, so we won't get to see the area. We don't plan on moving to Belle Glade, but rather living somewhere like Wellington. What do you think about working in Belle Glade? Is the commute bad? Is it relatively safe to work there? I've done a lot of research on the area, but since I've never actually visited it, I wanted some opinions from those who know the area.

Thanks!

Belle Glade is poverty/farmland. The ride to/from Wellington is going to bore you to death and take 10 hours a week out of your lives.

Belle Glade is rough. Has a state correctional facility, use to have 2, one closed. As City Guy said the drive on Rt.98 is not pleasant, sugar cane fields with a couple of factories. You don't want a break down on that road at night,ditches filled with various reptiles.I was offered a job out there years ago so I made the drive several times, said no thank you.Palm Beach put a sheriffs station out there for obvious reasons,crime. You need to see it to believe it.
