2010 Census brings jobs to Federal Way

The 2010 census is bringing jobs to the Federal Way area.

To prepare for the census, which will happen in April, several Washington state workers will be hired by the U.S. Census Bureau. On Thursday, Federal Way officials celebrated the opening of an office, located at 33705 9th Ave. S. Building C, to house census employees. Approximately 800 to 1,200 temporary field workers are needed to help conduct the 2010 census in the Federal Way area, said local census office manager Guadalupe Cavazos. The employees will work part time, between 20 and 40 hours per week. They will work within their own communities in Pierce and King counties, but will respond to permanent staff at the Federal Way location, also known as the Federal Way/Tukwila office.

To apply for a census job, call the toll-free job hotline at (866) 861-2010 or the local office at (253) 449-1150.
