The federal government is still hiring Census workers. Temporary part- or full-time work is available from April to June as Census Enumerators. The job pays $13 per hour and 50 cents per mile measured from a worker's home. To be eligible, applicants must pass an exam. Enumerators' hours in training and driving to and from the training site will be paid. It is suggested that applicants take a practice exam available at www.2010censusjobs.gov. Applicants must have a car, driver's license, and legal identification - a birth certificate, Social Security card, or passport - and bring it to the exam.
Bolton exam sites and times are as follows: 10 a.m. every Thursday through April at RPI Freshwater Institute, Contessa Loop and Lakeshore Drive; at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. every Thursday through April at Bolton Town Hall's courtroom. Registration is suggested at 824-2500. Information, practice tests, and directions can be obtained from Tony Chabarek of the Census Bureau at 494-3919. Take advantage of this well- paid, easy job while you still can.There will be no other testing beyond the end of April. The sooner applicants take and pass the test, the sooner they can be hired. A background check will be conducted after the exam.
