  • Flexible hours
  • Interesting work

Positions are available to conduct a Census Bureau survey on a variety of vital issues such as, housing, income, and employment. Field Representatives interview randomly select addresses, using a laptop computer. The number of hours worked may range from 35-40 hours each month, depending on the workload in the assignment area. The best time to interview tends to be on the weekends and evening.

This is an ideal job for a self-starter who is organized and who enjoys meeting and talking with people. While most people are cooperative, some respondents require our interviewers to be skilled salespeople that are able to "sell" the importance of the survey.
