    Former Employee - Assistant Manager Administration in Providence, RI (US)

    I worked at US Census Bureau full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fast paced very exciting job.

    Cons

    No overtime legally allowed, but average work week for all Assistant Managers was in the 50 to 60 hour a week range. During the hiring stage and training stage of operations for thousands of enumerators the average work week was well over 60 to 70 hours a week. If you asked for overtime pay it was immediate termination. Temp. position, no benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is not the job for you if you are looking to stay with a company and have any future opportunities. Of all the 50 locations that I was in contact with daily, they often pit the different managers against each other to get as much work as possible out of the employees.

    I worked at US Census Bureau as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The pay was better than most for a college student. They paid for training and miles. Very easy to learn the manual.

    Cons

    It could be very tedious at times. If you get bored easily then this isn't the job for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There was too much bureaucracy involved. Too much red tape to move up. Let the people who deserved to work, work!
