    Current Employee - Statistical Clerk in Jeffersonville, IN (US)

    I have been working at US Census Bureau part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    flexible schedule, security on grounds, able to work with people of different abilities (vision, hearing, non-walking difficulties, etc), not a typical call center environment

    Cons

    benefits not available or the requirements are so specific that only a limited population of employees are eligible, opportunity for promotion/increased responsibility can be improved, having to take the verbal abuse of the US population while they do NOT have omniscient knowledge about the federal government
