Jobs in Hoover, Alabama, United States
Hoover is a city with a population of approximately 85,000 located in north – central Alabama. It is a suburb of Birmingham, the most populous city in the state.
Only incorporated as a city in 1967 growth was slow until the Riverchase Galleria opened in 1986. This large-scale retail/office/hotel space kick started a rapid growth that continues to this day.
Hoover is one of the most popular suburbs of Birmingham. Located in pleasant surrounds of natural rolling hills, it is home to a number of popular residential developments, well-regarded schools and excellent city services.
The city is very much an outdoors kind of place, home to over a dozen well maintained parks and preserves providing a wealth of outdoor recreation from hiking to sports pitches.
Shopping and retail therapy in general is also a particularly popular past time here. The aforementioned Riverchase Galleria provides over 2.4 million square feet of retail floor space, so if you enjoy shopping you’ll be well catered for!
Away from shopping there are beautiful Botanical Gardens to explore and, for golf fans, the city is home to Ross Bridge Golf Resort and Spa, the third longest golf course in the world.
