Review of Maine, Maine


JOBS/WEATHER
Star Rating - 2/8/2014
Unless you want to live around Portland Maine or maybe BIW, not much work in Maine, except min wage...Weather from Sept thru May, you freeze your butt off, put kids in long johns for Halloween..From Bangor on up, LOTS of snow by the footage..beautiful lakes though.Lived in maine most of my life. I left 10 yrs ago,I don't feel ppl are real friendly on the average.Taxes are AWFUL on small ranches, just amagine a big house of maybe 1800 sg ft.Heating fuel> bring your wallet...The summer is NICE from June to end of Aug.Thats all.....Save your self some time and money folks, you wont stay long...unless its just a getta way for you in the summer.....Taxes are terrible....Wait till you register your car or buy a home. Its a POOR STATE and I have know idea what Augusta>capital is thinking...

Regarding not much work, the unemployment rate is among the lowest of the low. Anyone who wants it can find work. If you have a skill or professional credentials, all the better. Maine needs employable people. I find people to be easy-going, friendly and willing to help each other out. Low density population contributes to very low crime rate and little to no congestion on roads. In the few cities, there's no rush hour. More like rush 15-minutes. I live in a modern, 4-bedroom, two-bath manufactured home on an acre and a quarter surrounded by woods and pay less in total than you'd pay for a one-bedroom or two-bedroom apartment just about anywhere. Spring is wet with melting snow and run-off and can be mucky, the summer is nice and moderate and the fall is the best. You do have to enjoy winter, dressing for the weather and getting out or be willing to hibernate.
