    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at US Census Bureau.

    Watch for announcement or frequent the web page for exam dates. Take the test to get an interview which is usually over the phone. For the most part these jobs are easy if you have a personality that likes to interact with people of all kinds. I have worked 8 different operations with the census and all of they were enjoyable.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Census Bureau.

    Interview

    You had to call the local office and register to take the test. Once you took the test, if you passed, they called you for a phone interview. If you were chosen, they call you with training info. The training was one week, paid, classroom setting at a local church's annex room. The supervisor was great, and chooses a "group leader" at the end of training, to act in their absence. Fellow workers were all very pleasant, and a lot of its forged friendships. Older, younger, unemployed as well as vets and students all worked.

    • Are you comfortable going door to door?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, flat pay based on region.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at US Census Bureau (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Seen an ad locally about open testing. Called the 800 number to schedule testing. Went to testing location, answered 30 questions (2 were examples and basically answers were given, so 28 questions) I received a score of 27. Received phone call 2-3 months later asking if I was still interested in a position with US Census. I replied that I was. A week later I received a call discussing the Enumerator position and if I was interested. It seemed like an interview with the simple yes or no questions to which once completed I was told where to go to start my training and when.

    Interview Questions

    • Had no typical interview question, just availability questions. Like ... are you available to work at least 20 hours a week? Do you have reliable transportation?   Answer Question
