There are especially a lot of people living in Memphis who work in sales jobs (18.27%), teaching (9.74%) and personal care services (8.40%).
Setting & Lifestyle
The city 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, Memphis has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Memphis a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
One of the benefits of Memphis is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 15.95 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, Memphis doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
