Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Bentonville is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Bentonville is a town of sales and office workers, construction workers and builders and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Bentonville who work in sales jobs (18.51%), office and administrative support (14.25%) and management occupations (7.69%).
A relatively large number of people in Bentonville telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 8.80% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. 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
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, Bentonville is worth considering.
In Bentonville, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 33.43 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.
As is often the case in a small town, Bentonville doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
