  • Still Looking Near New Castle

    Anyone know of anything open near New Castle or Richmond? I might even take a Security position just to get into the area. I have a chance to get a house free and I don't want to pass it up.

    That area is kinda at a stand still at the moment. I am from near there and there are hardly ever any openings.

      Security is likely only going to pay $9/hr., so if your willing to take that, why not just move and take anything (even min. wage) until the economy and tax situation works itself out. I personally would look at dispatcher and jailer jobs as well. A job in a jail would likely pay more than security, have better benefits, and at least get you a foot in the door towards a possible patrol position later on.

      Right now, you are going to have a really, really hard time finding any government jobs. The government is being careful because of the property tax cuts. The state has already taken in millions _less_ than before, due to the economy. The private sector is holding off as well.

      If I were you, I would call around to see if anyone is looking for dispatchers/jailers. Then I would do a good search of surrounding businesses that hire for security. Here are some suggestions:
      In Greenfield there are a few large companies:
      Covance, a Sam's Club/Walmart warehouse (note: Walmarts are all over the place, their upper level security/loss prevention actually pays pretty well), http://www.ipt-inc.com/ , http://www.noveltyinc.com/

      Most bank teller jobs pay $10/hr., and there are many banks and credit unions all over that part of the state.

        Why don't you "take" the house, and RENT it out, most rental properties owners are making good money right now because many people can not afford to PURCHASE a home! Great second income! Just rent to the right person.

          Rushville is hiring, 20 minutes south of NC. It's on ILEA's bulletin board.

            I think I remember where Rushville is. Thanks for the info.
            Right now, Michigan is so bad, I want out. I'll take almost any job to make that happen. Also, my grandmother is still livin in the house. She wants us to move in and be her caretakers.
            I know things are bad all over, I'm just hoping to wait it out.

                New Castle PD may be having two openings soon. Who knows:

                NEW CASTLE -- Two New Castle police officers and the director of the Henry County Community Corrections program were arrested Wednesday after being accused of racketeering, ghost employment and other crimes.

                The arrests -- of officers Jim Heffernan, 39, and Matthew Patterson, 38, and HCCC director Doug Sheets, 57 -- followed a state police investigation of the community corrections program launched in May at the request of the Henry County Board of Commissioners.

                  That's sad. How do officers get corrupt like that?
                  New Castle, I believe, has an age cap of 36 because of PERF. I'll check on it anyway.
                  What is the meaning of "ghost employment?" I've never heard that term used before.

                      If you are over 36, keep an eye out on the county positions, go corrections, get on Henry Co. Reserves and they will be hiring soon. All the little towns around here are on PERF.

                        Actually, Henry County was accepting apps last week and I got mine in. I hope they call back. I believe it was for corrections.
                        I didn't know Henry County had reserves. Cool!! I'll apply to that too.
                        And I'm 42 years old. I know, I'm old, but I can still to the job.
