Interview Details – Seen an ad locally about open testing. Called the 800 number to schedule testing. Went to testing location, answered 30 questions (2 were examples and basically answers were given, so 28 questions) I received a score of 27. Received phone call 2-3 months later asking if I was still interested in a position with US Census. I replied that I was. A week later I received a call discussing the Enumerator position and if I was interested. It seemed like an interview with the simple yes or no questions to which once completed I was told where to go to start my training and when.
Interview Question – Had no typical interview question, just availability questions. Like ... are you available to work at least 20 hours a week? Do you have reliable transportation? Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at US Census Bureau in December 2009.
Interview Details – A couple of years before the census begins, you have to register to take an aptitude test. You can also submit special applications for management jobs. The candidates are selected by computer, and then by interview. It is pretty easy to be hired if they call you, so long as you respond to the call within a few hours. You have to pass a detailed background check. Once you are hired in, you can apply for promotions.
Interview Question – I think the questions are all fairly predictable, no trick questions that I can recall. Initially, hired as a clerk, the interview was minimal. For the promotion to supervisor, there was an interview with four managers. Again, no trick questions. If you know how to supervise people, the questions and your answers will make it clear. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Salaries are set by law.
