Jobs in Waterloo, Iowa, United States

Waterloo is a city located on the banks of Cedar River in central-eastern Iowa. It’s a home of more than 68.000 residents from various ethnic and racial backgrounds.

Historically, the city has been known to be one of the most segregated cities in the Midwest – a fact which unfortunately weaves throughout the decades to present day. The city has a strong presence in manufacture and agriculture, offering job opportunities in these sectors.

However, Waterloo has suffered a strong economic hit when John Deere Corp. laid off more than 10.000 employees in the 80s. Unfortunately, the city still feels the consequences of the sustained population loss. Although, it has contributed to the drastic decrease in the housing and living costs.

Moreover, the city has suffered another economic hit during the 2008 floods. The local government has taken a number of measures to tackle the consequences of the flood and battle the racial gap.

The Economy of Waterloo

Even though the past 30 years haven’t been kind to the economy of the city of Waterloo, it still retains strong presence in the fields of manufacture, agriculture, administrative support, healthcare, education and construction.

The John Deere Corp remains the largest employer in the city, followed by Covenant Medical Center and Allen Memorial Hospital.

The lack of businesses however can be seen in the high unemployment rate of 6.30% and with median household income of 41.000$, show that the city is slowing down.

The extremely low costs of housing and living have attracted jobseekers and professionals who wish to experience the ‘small-town’ lifestyle.

Quiet Life in Waterloo

Waterloo has several cultural venues such as the Waterloo Center for the Arts, The Phelps Youth Pavilion and Grout Museum District to name a few.  They offer a variety of cultural events and family entertainment. Waterloo is the home of Hawkeye Community College and is served by Waterloo Comm School District.

However, residents sometimes claim that educational services are somewhat subpar. The city also has several parks, equipped with running trails for outdoor entertainment. With median age of 37 years, and low crime rate, Waterloo can be appealing to those who wish to raise a family in a quiet neighborhood.
