Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 15 People

    Used To Work For Them 10 Yrs Ago

    BTW, if you do work for them this time around and you do the thing w/ the maps- count each one you do. They do NOT tell you that at the beginning- only at the end. Just an FYI. And my impression of the census manager types were that they were gung ho on the census being important...
