Enumerator/Crew Leader Assistant (Former Employee), Staten Island, NYMarch 27, 2015
The hardest part of my job was tracking down people who were willing to complete the cencus tasks. I at times had to deal with no doubt non-citizens and assure them that no harm would come to them but, it was in their best intersts. I essential,ly worked alone. The best part of this job was meeting different people and challenge of getting them to feel comfortable to complete the form needed so that they would no doubt be counted as an individual living in this country,

As a Production Enumerator I located housing units and conducted interviews with respondents to explain the purpose of the census and to record data.
Production Enumerator (Former Employee), Chicago specifically in East Rogers ParkMarch 26, 2015
Pros: The salary was nice: $18 per hour and there was some flexibility regarding the work schedule.
Cons: Respondents who were recalcitrant made the job difficult.
My role as a Production Enumerator for the U.S. Census Bureau from April through June 2010 was eye opening, challenging, and ultimately rewarding.

As noted above my responsibilities called for tracking down the residences of individuals who had failed to respond to the bureau's questionnaire and conveniently my area of assignment was within six blocks of my condo in East Rogers Park.

Given the diverse socio-economic structure of the community a number of the respondents lived in single family homes. However, most resided in large multi-unit buildings which required some creativity to determine if the respondent was still living on the premises. I learned to do this by speaking, for example, with neighbors, landlords, and mail carriers. Eventually, I was able to locate most residents who responded verbally to the questionnaire, or I obtained the required information by speaking to a legal third party either in person or by phone.

My team leader was a wonderful mentor, savvy, flexible, and patient.

Aside from the first several training sessions I didn't have much interaction with the other enumerators. However, those I got to know were friendly and knowledgeable as a number had participated in the census conducted in 2000.

The most enjoyable part of the job involved locating the respondent which enabled me to obtain and record the required information.

Went to a meeting the day before work got my assignment. Went out the next day went door to door fulfilling my job assignment as required. I worked on my own with no supervision. The hardest part of that job was getting people to answer the door.

Interviewing unwilling persons
Enumerator (Former Employee), Layton, UTMarch 24, 2015
Pros: With a no-nonsense attitude and calm voice, it was pretty easy to get the required information.
Cons: Threats of violence
I would receive an uncompleted questionnaire and a map where to find the address then after locating the correct building I would attempt to contact any living person over age 18 to interview about who, if anyone, lived in the building understanding that previous enumerators had attempted and were possibly threatened.

Was fun for a strictly temporary job
Enumerator (Temporary) (Former Employee), Chicago, ILMarch 16, 2015
Pros: getting out and meeting new people
Cons: just a strictly temporary job, that didnt last long.
My job consisted of going to various peoples house and taking surveys, sometimes we were assigned individually what houses to work with, and sometimes we would divide into teams. I learned people skills, how to deal with people and how to communicate more with others. The management was great, the manager was quite skilled and knew exactly what they were doing. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and communicating with them.

Great Job
Data Entry (Former Employee), Jeffersonville, INMarch 16, 2015
Pros: great pay
Cons: too short of term of job
Though there were times we worked till 3am it was an undeniably wonderful job that I worked with my oldest daughter. I also made a very dear friend there who has become like a little sister I never had. The Supervisor was great, the work kept you busy and they treated you fairly. The only bad part of the job was that it ended too quickly.

Interesting work.
Office Clerk (Former Employee), Newark, OHMarch 14, 2015
Pros: earning extra money
Cons: it was only a temporary job.
A variety of work to do each day. Reading manuals got to be kind of tedious but I liked the busy days best.
Management was learning the same as the rest of the staff at times.
Co-workers were like anyplace. Some worked ..some didn't.
Hardest part was cold calling I guess. People got very tired of being called again and again.
Most enjoyable was working with some very nice people and of course pay day.
