Work in McAlester

“We both found jobs we love and haven’t had a single regret since moving here. We love Mac!”

I love living and working in this community because it is large enough for economic viability, yet small enough to have the opportunity to personally know the community you are investing in. Professionally or personally, your investments truly make a difference.

At the end of 2020, I just wanted to see some sort of change. I had been on unemployment due to the pandemic, and was finally getting back to work in the service industry. I had a friend who was looking to move to Oklahoma and we found the cute, small-but-big-enough town of McAlester. We came on a day trip and signed a lease that day. McAlester is small enough to remind us of the small town we grew up in, while we’re still making so many connections and growing abundantly. We both found jobs we love and haven’t had a single regret since moving here. We love Mac!
