So, who here is going to try it?
I applied to be part of the Census 2010 'temporary workers' through a local contractor, and I had to go through FBI clearance to get the job. They
took my fingerprints, picture, blah blah with some hi-tech gadgetry, then told me to wait for the results.
I passed. And this was a 'super confidential assignment' within a locked wing of the building. They said that if the POTUS himself came in and
asked questions we were not to answer them. So, I'm pretty sure my file is okay.
I went through the training, and started the job. I left it, though, having "failed" to use the "scripted" responses to census-responder's
questions (this was the incoming Q&A call center) verbatim. It was ridiculous.
We weren't even allowed to "paraphrase" or to give a memorized answer - we HAD TO PULL UP THE QUESTION on the software system and read WORD FOR
WORD, like robots, EXACTLY what was written there. If we answered without PULLING UP THE SCRIPT, even if our answer was completely correct and
verbatim, we got 'written up'.
Stupid bureaucracy. Gave me some good insight into the debacle that is the D.C. govt machine.
So, you all go ahead and try this. I'll be interested to see if anyone gets their file.
