Mission Support Specialist / Evidence Custodian in Herndon, VA

I truly love working for all the people in my office, I am only seeking a job elsewhere because I want to expand my investigative skills. I work regular daytime hours but I am always available if and when they need me.
Census Field Manager in Rohnert Park, CA
on June 27, 2022
Busy, fast paced, intriguing, educational. Some good managers, some not so good; as a result, it had a revolving door feel to it. Overall, the employee staff was great; made a lot of friends. The best part was being a part of something that was truly important, that had a positive effect on the different communities we served.

Honestly speaking I was on a seasonal assignment working as a Field Enumerator so I can't really rate the good and bad about the company. What I can say is that it was an interesting position which ended up being rewarding.

Good work for a year and a half every 10 years. Pays well while you work and then you can collect unemployment since they lay you off. Field work can be challenging if you have to knock on doors.
