Jobs in Decatur, Alabama, United States

Decatur is a city with a population of 55,000 people, located in the north of the state of Alabama.

The city is nicknamed the River City, due to its proximity to the Tennessee River. This proximity caused the city to initially thrive as a regional transportation hub and major economic center for the area – a role it has since relinquished to other cities.

Instead today the city economy is more heavily dependent on manufacturing and high tech industries than it was in the past.

Decatur Jobs Market

As mentioned above, the Decatur economy is heavily reliant on manufacturing, particularly, though not exclusively, within the high tech sector.

This is mainly due to the Port of Decatur, which is the busiest river port on the Tennessee River. This has led to a number of companies opening large manufacturing plants within the city.

Meow Mix, for example, opened a 200,000 square foot plant in the city to take advantage of the port and creating hundreds of jobs.

General Electric is the largest single employer in the city, with 1,200 working at it’s refrigerator plant.

The United Launch Alliance brought with it the manufacturing off all the satellite launching rockets used by the US government to a facility in Decatur and employs over 800 people.

The median income across the city is $45, 459 and unemployment currently stands at 4.1% (2017), lower than both national and state averages. Job growth is currently somewhat stagnant however, at negative 0.2%.

Making a Home in Decatur

Decatur has a pretty historical district, along with several theatres, museums and art galleries. It’s location on the shores of Wheeler Lake, plus the adjacent Wheeler Wildlife Refuge, provide excellent recreational facilities amongst the surrounding natural beauty.

The city maintains a number of parks and recreational facilities may of which include sports pitches such as tennis courts and soccer fields.

Decatur is also home to several very popular festivals. The Alabama Jubilee, for example, is a hot air balloon race and associated festival that draws crowds of over 100,000 into the city.

These festivals, and other forms of tourism are big factors in the town economy, meaning that a host of bars and restaurants exist in the city. Whilst primarily designed for the tourists, they also provide a vibrant nightlife for the city’s permanent residents.
