Former Contractor - Bi-lingual Office Clerk in Syracuse, NY

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

Pros

Fun co-workers from all classes of life, management who actually cares about their employees in terms of scheduling and availability of overtime hours, mileage reimbursement, etc. Benefits are getting to meet LOTS of new and different people.

Cons

Office culture was business casual, privacy policies were very strict (and still are, most of the information I obtained must be kept secret for no less than 42 years). Needed more computerized access, less paper usage.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let's do it again in 2020! It was a fun and rewarding experience, I wished I had applied sooner for a management or supervisory position, as that was what I was more suited to do than being solely a Bi-lingual office clerk.

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

    Pros

    Very eclectic group of people to work with. Many different operations, so job stays interesting. Compensation is higher than average in area.

    Cons

    The training is always verbatim. While I understand that this is necessary because of the diverse settings for local offices, it tends to be very boring.
