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

Pros

Great pay; I set my own hours and planned where to go; mileage on the job, and even TO the job was paid; challenging and rewarding work; many of the interviewees were cooperative and friendly; other crew members and crew leaders were easy to get along with; I was working as part of a team.

Cons

It was only a a part-time, temporary job; lots of wear and tear on the car; reliable transportation was required; some interviewees were not very friendly or cooperative; some interviewees were hard to find at home.

Other Employee Reviews for US Census Bureau

  1. "Good pay and flexible hours"

    Pros

    You get payed well at the census bureau and the hours you can work is really up to you. You only have to get the forms filled out whenever you think people will be home. It's a tough job putting up with people sometimes, but you'll become more confident in yourself from the experience.

    Cons

    Main downside is that unlike a delivery man no one expects you to be knocking at their door and usually the people who didn't fill out their census forms did it because they distrust the government for some reason or simply can't be bothered. Getting people like that to fill out census information, regardless of the fact that it's very short and safe information, can be very difficult.
