    The US government is recruiting hundreds of thousands of people to help with the 2010 census. The pay is hourly, I think about $18 to $20 bucks an hour.

    You have to contact them and they will tell you where to go to take a 30 minute test. These temporary jobs might also lead to more permanent positions.

    I just took my test and scored a 96%. It was a bit tricky and difficult but for anyone with half a brain, it wasn't bad. They said they will contact me in Feb.

    It will be nice to have this option to supplement my existing income if I need it and thought other guys here might be interested.

    Good luck!

    I tried contacting the Census Bureau for census 2010 job opportunities here in Buffalo at the beginning of this year and they had no openings. There doesn't seem to be any decent paying jobs in this town.

    I worked the 2000 Census. It was a lot of work for $10/hr. Now they pay up to 20?? Geeeze....

    BTW: Drypin needed changing?? There are some guys on the internet that would pay you to let them change you. Or at least offer to buy your dirty underwear.....{Aside} What? Oh. Never mind. icon_lol.gif

    Here is what happened after I took their aptitude test last January:

    1. They contacted me, asking if I was interested in a job. I told them I was already a full time student, and that for now I wouldn't be able to take the job, sadly. (They required 40 hours of training, and since I was student...I couldnt get out of class that much to meet the training requirements.) They said there would be night classes offered at some point. Repeat 2x.

    2. They called me and asked if I was still interested. There were no job offerings available, but they were just checking. Repeat 3x.

    3. When I was finally done with school, I received no word for weeks. They had stated I would be contacted, and that I should not contact them.

    4. When I finally did get tired of waiting (I was already working anyhow), I called and asked what the situation was. It turns out, that after refusing to work for them 3 times, they put me on their "f*ck him he doesnt want to work with us list". or, the "Ineligible" list.

    5. I was told to speak to a manager, and I did. I explained the situation to her, and she put me back on the "Eligible" list.

    6. No word for 3 months. I gave up long ago.

    7. 2 Weeks ago: They called me to confirm that A). I was still interested in the job. B) Asked if I could speak any foreign languages fluently. (no.) Repeat 3x.

    It's the epitome of a bureaucracy.
