The pay rate begins at $13.50 per hour plus 58 cents per mile in travel reimbursement and all positions include paid training. Census takers have flexible work hours including opportunities for daytime, evening and weekend hours.

Census field supervisors conduct fieldwork to support and conduct on-the-job training for census takers and/or to follow-up in situations where census takers have confronted issues, such as not gaining entry to restricted areas. Recruiting assistants travel throughout geographic areas to visit with community-based organizations, attend promotional events and conduct other recruiting activities.
HOW TO APPLY The application process is all online at www.2020Census.gov/jobs
<http://www.2020Census.gov/jobs> . It should take about 30 minutes and includes assessment questions about education, work and other experience.
Applicants will be asked to provide their Social Security number, a home address, email address and phone number, and date and place of birth. Those who are being considered for a position will receive a telephone interview. If offered a job, they will receive instructions on next steps via email.
