Former Employee - Enumerator in Atlanta, GA

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

Pros

work from home, can walk to work, rest between assignments

Cons

Because it only takes place once every ten years, there is a certain sense that at first no one knows what they are doing, and by the time you find out, it is over

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to get across to the supervisors that they need to tell people what the purpose of the meeting is.

    I worked at US Census Bureau part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The work hours are somewhat flexible and you get to work from home.

    Cons

    Income varies each pay period. It is not possible to accurately estimate how much you will earn each pay period.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a few cues from the private sector and you could easily transform this role into one of the better entry level jobs in government.
