Which hospitals are better to work? Recommend any? How is the pay? Is traffic a problem? Why does it cost less to live in Fresno? Crime? Gangs? I hope to visit the area first and then make the big move. THX
I think a visit is definitely a wise idea. Fresno or Clovis Community Hospitals are better. I cannot stress enough to try Clovis instead of Fresno, though. We are joined at the hip. I can get to any Fresno establishment within 15 minutes and the two cities are a WORLD apart. We do not have hookers, bums, porn stores, or anything like Fresno allows but we're big enough to have about a million Starbucks. LOL. I completely recommend Clovis Community Hospital. Our pay is good but we're not at the level of the bay area hospitals. It is comparable for the are, though. Traffic is not a problem here. We have excellent freeway systems running North/South and East/West that make navigating the city very convenient. It costs less to live in Fresno because we are in the middle of Cali. We do not have the luxuries of the bay area or the South. You have to travel about 3 hours to reach the ocean and 1 hour to reach the hills. There are gangs and crime in certain areas of Fresno, so I won't live in Fresno any longer. I am a loyal Clovis dweller. Please, Please look it up if you are considering a move. I use to be a Recruiter for Comcast and I would do the relocation for our Executives. Most of them would freak about moving to Fresno, but are VERY happy in Clovis. They are that different. Clovis has Friday night Farmer's Markets, and lots of festivals in our Old Town area, which is full of antique shops. However, we also have outstanding Emergency Services, State Distinguished Schools (they stress higher learning and the kids work hard but learn a lot) that are very strict on dress code and keep the kids out of trouble. Google Clovis, California and I think you'd be really pleased. Like I said, you can get anywhere in Fresno within minutes but enjoy a much safer, easier lifestyle. As a matter of fact, there is a beautiful mountain view from our newest highway, 168. Hope this helps.
As for VF, it is extremely rare here. I've lived here all my life and have never personally known someone to get it. I remember hearing of something in the past, but it is definitely not common.
