trn.gif Quitting job because Exxon is moving
Hi there, I am a mother with 3 kids. My husband works at Exxon HQ, which is in Irving, TX. Exxon is planning to move their workers to Houston, including my husband. I have lived in Irving for my whole life and I wouldn't think of moving. My husband really love his job and I don't like living in Houston because of the humidity, hurricane threats, and traffic. My kids are attending the finest school in Irving, and is Houston ISD a good school district to put my child into. I am convincing my husband to quit this job, and find another one.

Should we move to houston. Or my husband quit his job and stay here?

No.

It's a sign that workers are being transferred here from Irving and Northern Virginia.

That post also screams of trolling. Someone from Irving bagging on Houston?

.

Have to agree seems like someone trolling. The grammar is horrible and there are contradictions. They say that they have only lived in Irving then go on to say that they don't like living in Houston. How would you know you don't like living in Houston if you have only lived in Irving. Also HISD isn't the only school district around and private school is a option. Just doesn't seem like a intelligent thought out post from a person that would make their husband quit their job.

Wouldn't it be likely that he'd end up working at the new Exxon campus in The Woodlands and thus the kids would be in whatever ISD is nearby?  At a bare minimum HISD would only be one of many choices depending on where they wanted to live.

 

Is Houston traffic really that much worse than Dallas?

Yeah it seems like a post from a 15 year old.

 

I don't know what school district would be Springwoods Village (KISD)?, but like most people working at the Exxon Campus they would probably move to the Woodlands (CISD).

 

She did point out a constant fear that stresses me out. Every day I religiously watch the weather reports for fears of a Hurricane striking the far most northern reaches of our metropolitan area. 70 miles from the coast? You are not safe.

 

Seriously what happens in the Spring/Woodlands area during a hurricane that doesn't happen when a big thunderstorm rolls in?

The western third of SWV is Klein ISD. The eastern two thirds--including EM and CityPlace--is Spring ISD. Parts of The Woodlands are Tomball ISD and Magnolia ISD as well.

 

Ike did do quite a bit of damage to the pines up there. Entergy didn't get power back to some folks for over two weeks. That said, I get the humor.

lol. ok, so the OP of that thread could very well be a troll. that thought didnt occur to me until someone over there pointed it out later. i just thought it was interesting and might of been an "inside scoop" on whats going on behind the scenes at Exxon HQ. many of us believe its just a matter of time before they relocate.

Why would they relocate here? What's the business reason? What benefit would it bring to the company?

Yeah, I don't want to be mean to the OP.  But, her post doesn't like that of someone married to a higher-up at XOM.

 

If I lived near the new XOM campus, the only reason I would worry about a hurricane would be if I had large pine trees near my house!

 

That could be a legitimate worry in The Woodlands as I understand they don't allow you to take out trees as a preventative measure to keep them from falling on your house in a storm.

Consolidating all of their administrative operations.  The same benefit they have touted for building the campus in Spring and consolidating everyone from various sites around Houston, plus Virginia, Dallas, Ohio...

If a pine tree falls on your house, you cut it up.  Have it removed.  Fix your house.  Insurance pays and life moves on. 

 

Aren't tornados more of a threat in Dallas then in the Woodlands?  They are much more devastating to homes than a typical hurricane and a falling pine tree or two. 

 

I guess I'm just inclined to look for and prevent problems rather than deal with them later.

 

Tornados are more of a threat in the Dallas area, however the reason we usually leave the area during a hurricane is just that...the tornados they spawn.
