City of Goodyear, Arizona
For Immediate Release: Jan. 5, 2009
Census Worker Testing this month at Goodyear City Hall
GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (Jan. 5, 2009) – The U.S. Census Bureau is gearing up for the 2010 Census and needs help finding census workers to be sure that everyone is counted.
An accurate census count is very important to Goodyear because the higher the city’s population, the more dollars the city will receive from state-shared revenues.
Several thousand workers are being hired for field positions in Maricopa County. The positions range in scope from Clerks to Field Operations Supervisors. The pay structure ranges from $11.25 to $16.50 per hour, depending upon the position.
Applicants must take and pass a test in order to qualify to work for the Census Bureau.
Testing will take place at Goodyear City Hall, 190 N. Litchfield Road, Room 117 at 9 a.m. on the following days:
- Thursday, Jan. 8
- Wednesday, Jan. 14
- Tuesday, Jan. 20
The test is comprised of 28 multiple-choice questions and takes 30 minutes to complete. Completing the application process and filling out related forms takes about 90 minutes. The entire process takes about two hours, total.
To arrange to be tested, call 602-427-0680. If the phone bank is busy, leave a voicemail with your name and phone number. A census representative will return your call.
As census jobs open, qualified people will be called from hiring lists which are printed in test score order.
For more information, call either 602-427-0680 or toll free 1-866-861-2010.
