    This was a good part-time, short-term job. I would do it again, and recommend it to my friends.

    I worked at US Census Bureau part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Thorough, paid, weeklong training. Good supervisor. Good pay rate. I got to know the area better. I could set my own hours, once training was over. The Census contacted me again a few months later when more work was available.

    Cons

    A fair amount of time was wasted during training, with people asking questions that had already been answered, or having conversations with other trainees. Assignments were handed out first-come, first serve, so people who had nothing else to do except the Census got a lot more assignments and thus got paid a lot more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Minimize cross-talk during training. Improve mapmaker/mapchecker training. Provide more than one day for people to apply to the next level of employment at the Census - there was only one, it was a full day, and I couldn't get daycare that day!

    Pros

    The pay was decent and the hours were flexible.
