Hi- I applied for a census job back in February. They called me up a few weeks ago, and interviewed me over the phone. I passed the interview, and they offered me a job, but first I had to be fingerprinted. I live in the Chicago area, and I got an email a week ago that I had to be fingerprinted within seven days of receiving the email. I clicked where you were supposed to find a location and make an appointment. I realized that there were only two locations to go to in the whole Chicago area, and the closest one was located at the Chicago/Oak Park boarder, and I live in Evanston. Then when I tried to make an appointment for this last Tuesday, it would only let me make one for Monday. When I started over again, it said that they could not perform that task and to please contact my administrator. I was finally able to make an appointment several hours later. It took me an hour to get there on Tuesday, and then late in the afternoon I got another email from them saying I passed the background check, and that I had to fill out some forms. When I tried to log in it would not let me. I finally figured out that it only worked in Google Chrome.
I filled out most of the forms tonight, but one concerned disabilities, and it mentioned many health related problems and asked me if I had them. One of them asked if I was suffering from depression or anxiety, and I am on antidepressants. Another one asked if I ever had or currently have cancer. Should I be truthful and tell them that I have a history of breast cancer or should I tell them no? Has anybody here ever worked for the census? I have to fill out all of the forms ASAP so I can be scheduled for training. I am going through one week of on site training and one week of online training in August, and if I pass that I will work for them for 20 hours a week for two months as an enumerator. They pay really well, and they are paying me $20 an hour just for the training. What so I do about the health questions? Thanks
