    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at US Census Bureau in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Great testing process. Interviews were professional and appropriate. They hire smart people. Veterans get ten points added to their exam score. This led to a very services oriented work place with a high degree of honor.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at US Census Bureau in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Very informal. Just had a quick discussion with the field supervisor. The fact that I was a veteran helped a lot during the hiring and interview phase. It gave you a 'leg up' over those who weren't veterans. So next time census rolls around, it would be a good way for vets to get some extra income especially if they were between jobs like I was.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Camarillo, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at US Census Bureau in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Basic phone interview, mainly checking to see if i was avaible to work a minimum of 40 hours a week on the census. After the phone interview they schedule a in person test which is about 30 questions long and is times. It is not a hard test but does require some thinking. The census hires strictly on test scores and vets are given a ten to five point bonus.

    Interview Details

    Remember that this is a temporary job with the federal government. I took the census test, and was ranked for a job opening. I accepted the job. Had I not accepted, I might have come up on the list for another job ... and I might not have.
    I like doing the wide variety of tasks that I have done in this position.
