Working in Greenville
Living here in Greenville, NC is ok. I moved here to be close to my mother who had multiple health issues. But she recently passed away. People are friendly. But there is a need for better paying job wages for a diversity of business such as restaurants, department stores like Walmart, Dollar General, Retail stores. I’ve worked at a few places. I’ve had to work multiple just to barely pay my bills. There two set of laws and rules in this city. One set of rules for the privileged and another set of rules for those that are not privileged. This is a town that is catered to East Carolina University. There is a lack of programs here for the minority communities. There is a lot of racism here indirectly. It’s masked through wages, events, all kinds of different business. I myself have witness it and been a victim of it at different occasions. I work, I pay taxes. I do not expect anything for free. I work hard to earn every penny I make. There needs to be more fair opportunities.
Greenville, NC has so much to offer! With the university near by as well as a large hospital system Greenville has a variety of jobs and educational avenues to offer to anyone of any age. It is a great place to settle down or just get an education. I have lived here for 3 years now and have nothing but radiant reviews about Greenville, NC.
Many shopping stores, job opportunities, and college sporting events for entertainment. East Carolina University students are very involved in helping the Greenville community. Greenville is not far from the beaches, and big cities. North Carolina residents benefit from low university tuition costs. Rent is very reasonable for the size of apartment that you get. Alot of southern hospitality. ECU is a huge nursing schools so medical facilities are prevalent.
