Occupations and Workforce
Mullen is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs.

There are especially a lot of people living in Mullen who work in office and administrative support (18.18%), maintenance occupations (14.20%) and management occupations (10.23%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 10.80% 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

With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Mullen really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Mullen perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.
The village is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Mullen has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Mullen a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Mullen spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 19.08 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the village are less than they would otherwise be.
