I loved it! I was a FOS. I had planned on staying for other opportunities but my career got side-tracked by a car accident. I loved the work, the staff, the citizens I interacted with, the training I provided, driving around and more.... Most of the citizens I spoke with were helpful. And the few that weren't were just being cautious, which was understandable. Then, once the facts were courteously explained, they too were helpful. Great place to work! I didn't want to leave.

From my understanding the Census Program in only done ever so often, there is not a position that could be create a job permanently. I wish there was, and if there where a position that did exist, the government would not have any employees who would want to leave. They chose very good candidate for managers as well, who knew how to manage people with respect and integrity.
