I have been researching the area of Hickory and will probably be leaving Texas this summer and moving there as a single mother with 4 children. I'm wondering what the schools are like there and where I could possibly make a few friends online untill I can get there :)

Sara, if you have a job in Texas, take some advice, STAY IN TEXAS !! there are no jobs here and the schools are not to good. my son started school in Hickory and when we moved, the new school took him down a grade because they said Hickory did not show him what he should have learned. i live in NC and i wish i didnt. it sucks .i stay because of reasons i perfer not to talk about on here.

Hickory nc is the worst place in north carolina to live! no jobs, bad economy. i lived there for a few years and the people there have no idea what friends are. they think that's somebody to wring dry of everything they can get from ya! i moved away from there 8 months ago and i will never go back. The. people there are hateful, no good sorry asses out too take all they can get. and that is. the truth. i personally stay as far away from that God forsaken place as i can! don't move there if you can get. out of it, i regretted it! real talk!!!!

Hey Real Talk how are the people where you moved to. I move here four years ago and love it here. I don't have an issue with anyone I have met so far so it may be you. Yeah jobs can be an issue but that all depends on your skill set. If you are a non skilled worker then you are screwed with finding a real good job but if you are a professional in a high demand market you can live here very well.

the people here are great! they know that in order to have friends, you have to know how to be one! I am a highly skilled business manager with a degree and 30 years proven experience. the part of hickory that i lived in was filled with people looking for prey and because I'm a nice person willing to help the less fortunate than myself, i became a target for every needy person in that area to be my friend, soon i figured out they were only out to get what i had and were not my friends! so i moved away from these prevaricated lowlifes to have real friends and i found that.happy to be away from the bottomfeeders and will never go back! Didn't lose nothing in hickory nc! worst place I've ever been in my life!

Can't you people read? Notice: I said I am a highly skilled business manager, with 30 years proven experience! I never said that I couldn't find a job there! I worked for a corporate company there, in fact, I made really great money there. However since you insist on assuming you think you know who I am, I take much pride in the fact that you thought I was unemployed and made remarks to me, seems atypical of what someone from Hickory might say! All I saw there, but I must ask you, sir jim, with the little j, how could I possibly have by people of which I had nothing to take, one would reason in all likelihood that I probably had a good job! Elementary my dear jimbob!

You are all bullshit. Here you talk about how it sucks here and you moved and how happy you are now. but on another topic you have a dead husband and are very upset and unhappy. you are an idiot.

well. my husband didn't die and leave you in charge of what i do, so who the hell are you? nothing in my book so to be quite honest, you have stuck your uninvited nose in the middle of a six year drama trip u know nothing about and u can go fuck yourself cause i don't gaf about anything you say or think about me! You are from HICKory which explains a lot about you! people like you is the reason i left, there's nothing i can do about my husband dying and yes i will be sad for a long time, however i am very happy in my life now, where i am, and the people in it and i hope i never see the drama redneck streets of HICKory ever again! So you can kiss my ass, you do not know me, therefore u have no right to judge me when you have no clue wtf u are talking about so shut up!
