MAXIMUS to Hire 950 in Jacksonville for 2020 Census

January 16, 2020 GMT

RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 16, 2020--

MAXIMUS, a leading provider of government services worldwide, announced today that it will hire seasonal employees to help support the 2020 Census. In Jacksonville, Florida, MAXIMUS plans to hire more than 950 employees for its contact center work over the next several months.

Every ten years, the U.S. Federal Government conducts a full census of every person in the country. The census results control the number of Representatives in the U.S. Congress apportioned to each state. Population counts also factor heavily into assigning billions of dollars in federal spending to state and city governments.

“There is a tremendous amount of dedication and hard work that goes into producing the U.S. Census. Our customer service representatives will have an opportunity to be involved in helping the public with this historic endeavor,” said Tom Romeo, President and General Manager, MAXIMUS Federal. “We are seeking customer service representatives who will answer phone calls from all over the country as part of the U.S. Census Bureau’s work. We are proud to play an integral role in this process and our recruitment efforts in Jacksonville are vital to the success of this project.”

Across the country, MAXIMUS will be hiring more than 8,000 limited service contact center employees to assist in this work. In Jacksonville, MAXIMUS is offering a competitive hourly wage of $15.08 for each of the 950 employees hired. Additionally, we are looking for bilingual candidates who are proficient in English and Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin, Tagalog, or Vietnamese.

Seasonal employees will have a variety of shifts available to meet their lifestyle and family needs. Additionally, they will have the opportunity to be trained as a world-class expert in customer service and could receive bonuses for referrals.
