No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

1. If you like to meet and work with all sorts of people, this is the job to do that.
2. Very flexible schedule as long as you get your work done.
3. The Bureau pays on time.

Cons

1. The Bureau provides a script to train you, but the quality of training depends on the trainer. The trainers need better training.

2. Learn on your own what you really need to do, because instructions from your immediate supervisor will be contradictory and he or she will get mad if you ask for better instructions. No one wants a mad supervisor.

Advice to Management

Train trainers better.
