Cave Township Reviews

3 reviews
The local businesses that are located in my community are nice but not spectacular. My community is very small so there is not a lot of traffic in any of the businesses. The employees at all of these businesses are excellent. All are very kind and helpful as soon as you walk in the door. The buildings themselves could use some updates but do have a homey feel to them. There are many good things about these businesses but there are also things that could use work, so overall i would rate my community businesses as average.

It is difficult to find a job in my community. People start looking for jobs as soon as they turn 16 but sometimes it may take up to a year before they find anything. Once a job is found, most often a minimum wage job, it seems to be fairly reliable.
The weather in this area is nice for the most part but seems to change quite often and at unexpected times. This makes preparation for things difficult. The overall weather experience is decent but nothing spectacular.
