Although most of the jobs won't kick in until next spring, there are currently over 10,000 openings nationwide for work in the coming weeks. In Nevada, they are currently looking for recruiters, for drivers to transport recruiting material( in your own car), front and back office help and more.
You must be a US Citizen and be at least 18 to work in the field. Younger students can get work in the district offices. Pay starts at $13 but most jobs pay about $20, depending on location. Supervisors can make up to $30 an hour. These jobs are flexible hours, and offer no benefits, no holidays or possibility of permanent employment.
Ideal jobs for students and retirees.

10 years ago I was on the management team in my area. Best job ever. Made something like $23 an hour plus travel, mileage, and lots of overtime.

I learned how the government works. I was in charge of the ethnic division. Our main goal was to distribute census forms to areas that may not speak English. We had these boxes that we had to build and distribute to places like grocery stores.

So main boss gives us our duties. Me and another guy had to build around 200 of these boxes that basically just unfolded. We did it in half a day. Boss comes in and sees that we aren done and freaks out. Said that was our job for an entire week. He said if we are done then we have to go home and he has to report less hours which messes up their budget. He made us take everything apart and told us to make it last a week.
Expect the worst and you will never be disappointed. I AM NOT PART OF GWAE RADIO SHOW

In 2000 ,I was a Field Supervisor for about three months. One of the best jobs I ever had. Was able to put together an amazing team that was incredibly efficient. We did four operations and came in well under budget. For 2010, I had my boss's old job and was never able to get a great team under me. The biggest problem was that with the economy being so bad, people would take the Census job while looking for something permanent. Had a constant turnover of key people so I spent as much time training replacements as doing my real job. Herding cats comes to minds. It never got better than controlled chaos but we finished under budget and scored high on The inspectors reports. Three of the seven Queens Districts had to be recanvased.
This time around, I'm hoping for part time work as a worker drone.

The stories I could tell from my 10 years with the federal government.

Back to the census, my mother did this temporary work. She had to knock on doors at Leisure World, a huge retirement community in California, of people who didn't turn in their forms.

It is at all levels. Guy worked for me told a story of him and another guy had to check some things on all the local schools. They went about it and a day and a half later told there boss "here you go!" Boss said they must not have done it right, do it again. Day and a half later boss says the same thing, adds that it should take a couple weeks.

Some time during this process the boss says he is taking some kind of personal time and will be at this one beach on Lake Ontario. This was said with a wink to mean, "I don't care where you guys go all day, as long as it is somewhere else." IOW, if they were somehow caught together they would all be in trouble, but apart they all had deniability.

My first Census was 1980 and we got paid by the forms we turned in. In one particular operation, my whole crew ended up making less then minimum wage as it was really difficult to turn in completed forms.
The next phase was ridiculous as I was sent to an residential apartment complex to finish partially filled out forms.
I had about fifty forms that had incomplete information that I was able to obtain from the office in a single afternoon.
Ten to fifteen forms a day was considered a full days work and I was able to knock out a weeks work in a day.
That became a pattern. They would give us a very frustrating task for a week or two and then reward us with a couple days of layups.
By 2000, it was strictly pay per hour for field work, but the data entry folks got bonuses for speed and accuracy.
