Winters are long, cold and harsh! We have our summers filled with nice weather but they seem to be short. People around here always ask themselves why they live here in regards to the weather!

I personally worked for the major company, CVS/Pharmacy, in the pharmacy department and strongly felt that I was underpaid and not taken care of the way I should have been based on the type of work I was doing and the responsibility he company puts on you. Ask the pharmacy managers and they will agree that they have a hard time keeping employees because at the end of the day, they aren't paid enough.
Different areas of the city seem to have bundles of businesses. Seems to work out okay. Usually, an area is closer to where you live than another so you tend to revisit the same businesses depending on where you live. Every once in a while you need to venture across town for a certain type of business.
