“Go from house to house — and have a nice personality. I love to meet people anyway, so it’s going to be smooth sailing.”

Census officials say jobs feature competitive wages — flexible hours — paid training — and weekly paychecks.

“We’re talking $15 dollars an hour plus mileage so — that’s really good pay, especially for part time,” said WCCS Census Contact Dr. Tara White. “You set your own hours and its really flexible. You work around you’re schedule.”

Officials also took time to stress the significance of the census — and share how important it is for everyone in the community — to be counted.
