    I worked at US Census Bureau as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was better than most for a college student. They paid for training and miles. Very easy to learn the manual.

    Cons

    It could be very tedious at times. If you get bored easily then this isn't the job for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There was too much bureaucracy involved. Too much red tape to move up. Let the people who deserved to work, work!

    Pros

    Opportunities to meet lots of interesting people and get to know your community better.

    Cons

    You never know from one operation to the next who your boss will be, and some are just are much more competent than others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give talented enumerators chances to move into management. You'll get better results.
