    Former Employee - Census Enumerator ("IntermittentTemporary")

    I worked at US Census Bureau part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Found the majority of the public to be enthusiastic and supportive of the survey. Training was excellent, first supervisor and crew leader were very nice to work with, learned a great deal about the importance (benefits) of all the surveys that the U.S. Census Bureau does. People with cold calling experience do well in this role. Opportunity for permanent work (sometimes), - have to get on their wait list.

    Cons

    Had to (occasionally) put up with harassment, threats, verbal abuse, lack of cooperation, and lack of response from the public whom we were required to survey (even after they were notified ahead of time of their requirement to respond).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better and quicker communication to field reps when supervisors have been removed from an 'operation' (i.e. project).
