Part Time Job Opportunity - Census Bureau

The Census Bureau is preparing for the 2010 by hiring thousands of temporary employees across the country. Here's what I learned from the website and by calling our local Census Bureau office.

  • There are full-time and part-time temporary positions, lasting up to two years, that pay $11.50-$19.50/hr depending on the specific job and the location in the U.S.

  • The full time positions are 40 hours per week, Monday through Friday, at an office with regular work hours.

  • The part time positions are up to 30 hours per week, at the convenience of the employee.

  • No benefits.

  • A qualifying test is required for all applicants.

  • Based on the job descriptions and pay level, I've decided to apply and have scheduled taking the qualifying test.

    For more details on Census Bureau job opportunities by area, check the Census Bureau site. Call the Census Bureau at 1-866-861-2010 or your local Census Bureau to find out where the qualifying test is offered. Here's a 30 minute practice test, with answers to try before applying.
