    I worked at US Census Bureau full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay. Flexible hours, so it is easy to work as a second job. Great training and the team leaders were available any time you needed them.

    Cons

    Lasts only for a couple of months every ten years. I would have felt safer in some neighborhoods if they would have sent us out in teams of two.
