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

Pros

Being able to work at your own pace and having some sort of freedom without having someone looking over your sholder every second

Cons

Sometimes you have to go into some questionable building to do work

Advice to Management

The job wasn't too bad but considering how many document I had to carry it would have been great to have been provided with a clipboard or something. I nearly had to rewrite everything because I was to stand outside and had to spend some time to clean up the documents.

    I have been working at US Census Bureau as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most people are happy to give you the required information as they know it will positively affect government allocation of funds to the local economy.

    Cons

    Come to terms with the fact that not every household will not wish to participate. Make sure you have dog treats that are readily accessible.

    Advice to Management

    Trainer was adequately prepared to teach the prep. class. An I-pad or laptop would catapult this survey into the 21st century. Current tallying method seems archaic.


  2. "Great temporary job! I loved it!"

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

    Pros

    Great pay and definitely as many hours as you wanted. I loved getting out and meeting the people in my community. I had a wonderful time at this job and would do it again!

    Any problems I had were minor. My supervisor kept phone contact with us.

    The 'lifetime' confidentiality clause is no problem and protects the citizens.

    Cons

    Some people had bad things happen; threats, etc. I was able to talk to anyone that had a negative attitude towards me and change their opinions.

    Policies re: what they wanted on the forms did change quite frequently and the maps weren't accurate in certain locations.

    Several employees lied about going door to door; waste of our taxes. Others had to do what they did not do.

    Advice to Management

    Screen supervisors better or make it clearer what the dress code should be.
