Pittsburgh, PACan I give Pittsburgh 0 stars?
If it was possible to give Pittsburgh 0 stars. Sadly, there is lack of opportunity for minorities. I am an educated minority female that had to leave Pittsburgh to earn the salary I feel I deserve. Since I moved 4 years ago, my salary has more than doubled. I considered moving back because I missed my family, but an over the phone interview with Robert Half reminded me why I left in the first place. Once they realized the color of my skin, the interview went south right away. They didn't even talk about my skill set, but just about the fact that I wasn't living in Pittsburgh at the time, and when I decide to make my move, call them. Lol, who leaves one city for another without a perspective employer? I could be overreacting, however, this has been my past experience, as well as my current experience, I just did the telephone interview two days ago!
Additionally, the weather is not favorable at all! It is always cold and dreary. Winter lasts way too long, and it is dangerous to drive in. Pittsburgh highways are not designed for the amount of traffic that flows through the city, and to make matters worse, they have implemented bike lanes on extremely busy roadways were bicyclists have actually been hit during busy rush hour times.
