Census Now Hiring Census Takers @ $13.50 to $15.00 hr.

The Census Bureau is actively seeking candidates from each community to assist with the upcoming Census 2020 count. The Census count is beneficial to our communities in regards to federal funding and congressional seats.    

Now the real important information, pay for Census Takers is $13.50 to $15.00 per hour and 58 cents per mile.  Employees are paid weekly and can expect to receive their first paycheck approximately ten to fourteen days after their first day of work.  Field employees will be reimbursed for authorized work expenses, like mileage, incurred while conducting Census work.  You can also expect payment during training at a slightly lower rate than your regular hourly rate.

If hired, your work schedule will depend on your position.  Generally, hours for field positions are flexible.  Some field positions require you to work during the day.  Other positions require evening and weekend work interviewing the public.  The Census Bureau is committed to hiring census takers to work in their own communities.
