Hallowell is a very small city located in the state of Maine. With a population of 2,329 people and just one neighborhood, Hallowell is the 137th largest community in Maine. Much of the housing stock in Hallowell was built prior to World War II, making it one of the older and more historic cities in the country.
Occupations and Workforce
Hallowell is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 85.73% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Hallowell is a city of professionals, sales and office workers and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Hallowell who work in office and administrative support (17.21%), management occupations (12.89%) and teaching (9.14%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.48% 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
One of the benefits of Hallowell is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 19.03 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.
As is often the case in a small city, Hallowell doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
