In the near future, the U.S. Census Bureau will conduct a Special Census in Eldridge. Local residents are needed to work as Enumerators. Enumerators visit households and collect a few facts about each member such as name, age, and relationship to the householder. Enumerators are paid $10.84 per hour, plus mileage and paid training.
To be considered for temporary census employment, review the job description fact sheet to determine if you meet basic eligibility requirements. Then submit a completed job application to Eldridge City Hall no later than October 3, 2016. The job description fact sheet and job application can be viewed online by clicking on "Employment"; at www.census.gov/programs-surveys/specialcensus.html. Paper copies of both documents can also be picked up at Eldridge City Hall, 305 N. Third Street, Eldridge, IA 52748.
You will be contacted just prior to the Special Census to take a job-related test to further determine suitability for census employment. The job description fact sheet and application also includes information about identification documents you need to bring to the testing session. If selected, you will be invited to attend a training class and then given a work assignment that lasts approximately 3 to 5 weeks.
