EDIT: I CURRENTLY LIVE IN LAREDO. I AM AWARE THAT EL PASO HAS A LARGE MEXICAN CULTURAL INFLUENCE.
Alright folks, looking to move in a couple years and trying to decide whether I want to move to El Paso or Phoenix. Both places fit my desired criteria and financial situation.
I'm not trying to get a job today, I'm just trying to get a feel for if there's a decent market for jobs that fit my desired criteria. I know there's a whole stack of companies in Phoenix that run western regional, and my current company runs a dedicated Pods flatbed division out of Phoenix so I've got a job waiting for me already. I'm curious about El Paso specifically.
I'm trying to stay west of 35 or maybe western 11 or 12 regional if it's available. Hazmat and tanker are fine by me, NO REEFER (been there done that and you can keep it haha). I don't want to move to El Paso and find that the only jobs are running to the east coast or Detroit or something.
So how realistic is it that I can move to El Paso and find a decent company that mostly runs the west (and maybe the plains states)?
What's the job market like in El Paso?
