Application Details

I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at US Census Bureau in April 2010.

Interview Details

Telephone call, testing and group interviews, including forms and other matters, like a classroom situation, where each person finished on his or her own time. There did not seem to be much to it. It probably could have been conducted online or completely by telephone. There was not much to indicate what skills were really being sought.

Negotiation Details
None, it was take it or leave it

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at US Census Bureau.

    Interview Details

    No interview - signed up for and took a test at the local employment office. Applied only for an office job as I didn't have a license at the time (required for enumerators). Got a perfect score on the test, which was fairly easy. Got a call back about an enumerator job, which I couldn't do. It was several months before they untangled the problem and offered me the office job I applied for.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days - interviewed at US Census Bureau in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    First, a group panel is given a simple math test, and then given a questionnaire asking about past relevant work experience. The chosen persons in the group are then requested to report to the nearest Census Office and submit their personal and background information as well as their finger-prints. The whole hiring process took 3-4 days, and the actual office work started on the 5th day.
