Review of tulsa, Oklahoma

Don't even think about moving to Tulsa, OK
Star Rating - 8/12/2009
I moved here 3 years ago, and I have regretted it everyday since. There is absolutely nothing to do here. It is what my grandfather called a "one horse town", except that there are about a half-million people in the metro area. The people are very rude and have no home-training. The job market is terrible. The pay is low and workers have no rights. Employers do and say anything they want to you, and you have no choice but to go with it. If you have a bachelor's degree and 15 years experience, you might be able to get a job paying $12 an hour if you are lucky. But your degree won't count unless it is from OU!!!
Don't bring a new car here. The roads are so bad that your car will be wrecked in two weeks. Everyone's windshields are cracked from all the debris on the roads. You will need to get new tires and a front end alignment every month here. Plus, they are the worst drivers in the world!!!! You get on the freeway and half the cars are doing 80 miles per hour and the other half are going 45 miles an hour.

As bad as the city is, the people are the worst. They are truly the rudest, most backwards thinking, lazy, slow, and littering people I have ever seen. They can tell if you are not from here in about 10 seconds, and when they find that out, they treat you like dirt. If you are not from here, they automatically assume that you think you are better than them. That kind of thinking hurts you when you apply for jobs also. It is hard to find a job if you have other states listed on your resume. Don't go to a job interview dressed up, or they will look crazy at you. Their idea of dressing up is their best pair of jeans, cowboy boots, an OU sweatshirt, and a ball cap that says OU on it. Truly ignorant people!!! I could go on and on, but I don't want to type all day. Bottom line --- If you live in another place, and you want to move, just throw a dart at a map and you will find a better place than Tulsa, Oky-homa!!!
