Census bureau hiring

This fall, the U.S. Census Bureau will hire over 500 temporary Field Representatives to conduct the New York City Housing & Vacancy Survey. The survey is conducted every three years to comply with the city’s rent regulation laws.

The jobs are expected to last between four-and-six months. Training is paid and employees are reimbursed for travel expenses.

Applicants will have to take a test to determine their eligibility, and must prove they live in one of the five boroughs. The pay rate for Field Representatives is $16.92 per hour.

All interested applicants must be over 18, pass a background check, a written test and two interviews, and be U.S. Citizens. All applicants outside of Manhattan are required to have a valid driver’s license and regular access to an insured vehicle.
