Brookville Reviews

2 reviews
Just to be safe I am going to say it is a small town so keep that in mind in this review. There is hardly any big businesses or chains in the town I live in. I almost always have to leave town to get what I need/want but I like that I live in just a small town. It's nice and quiet, and all the people are very friendly. You can just about talk to anyone you meet there as if they've been your friend for a year.
Review Brookville
The job market here is very poor. The people that have been in the positions they've been in, i.e. mechanics, general managers, etc., have been and will be there for quite some time. Most of the min wage jobs are just the high school kids that eventually move or go to college, but very few stay. Farming and automotive is probably the two biggest areas for jobs in my area.
