No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

The pay and training was excellent. I was privileged to have a very supportive team leader and supervisor.

Cons

Some areas assigned can be rough to door-knock or even access. Weather conditions in Arizona even in March/April are hot and dry. Some of the residents can be suspicious of government employees and behave aggressively.

Advice to Management

Emphasize in training the importance of remaining safe while conducting surveys and door-knocking.

    Pros

    High paying for the kind of work you do.
    The hours are pretty flexible and short.

    May have to work a graveyard shift or two.
    Had to get into teams of 3 or 4 to survey the homeless, so some areas may be a little sketchy.
