Greenville is a very small town located in the state of Maine. With a population of 1,606 people and just one neighborhood, Greenville is the 171st largest community in Maine.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns, Greenville isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Greenville are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Greenville is a town of service providers, sales and office workers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Greenville who work in sales jobs (14.30%), food service (13.77%) and personal care services (10.26%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 14.17% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Greenville is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the town experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller town.
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Greenville is worth considering.
One of the benefits of Greenville is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 17.46 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.
Being a small town, Greenville does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
