A typical day I would review my summary of dwellings, pack a bag with necessary items, and head to the location I where I would be working. I would spend a few hours doing follow-up, then go back home and update my attempts into the computer. Sometimes I would have a delivery for my Crew Leader.
I learned how to be diplomatic and to listen carefully to a respondant. I learned how to interview respondants. I learned how to write up a refusal, and notice of visits. I learned how to complete a short form and long form questionnaire.
My Crew Leader was great. She was available anytime, easy to talk to, and very organized. She worked very hard.
I got along with most of my coworkers.
The hardest part of my job was trying to change the mind of a person who refused to complete a questionnaire.
The most enjoyable part was meeting lots of respondants.
