Flexible Schedule - From 20 to 30 hours/per week
July 17, 2009 – December 2009
Kanawha and McDowell Counties, WVA

NORC seeks reliable, outgoing, persuasive people to conduct in-person interviews within the homes of residents of selected REACH neighborhoods, July 17th – December 2009. Some interviews may also be completed by telephone. This research survey will focus on community health issues. Interviewers must gain the cooperation of the residents of sampled households and maintain strict confidentiality standards. Most of the interviews will be in Kanawha County but there will also be some interviews to conduct in McDowell County as well.

Interviewers must be self-motivated, have a valid driver’s license, a working car, and NORC required insurance coverage limits. Interviewers will report weekly to Field Managers. No selling. Background and driving history checks are conducted.

Hourly rate $ 13.18 plus mileage

Interviewers administer a structured questionnaire in person or (sometimes by phone) in scientifically sampled households. One or more household members may be selected for the interview which takes about 1/2 hour to administer. The survey collects data about the respondents' health and community.

This information is gathered carefully and systematically. Reporting and record keeping are required. Interviewers will be well trained and supported by Field Managers. The majority of the interviews must be completed within the first 16 weeks of the field period. The work must progress very quickly, leaving the last weeks of the field period for clean‑up tasks.

Successful applicants will attend 4 days of paid training in Chicago July 13th through July 16th. Attendance at all assigned training sessions is mandatory.

This is an interesting position for individuals with flexible availability when residents are expected to be home. Successful applicants must be available to work from 20 - 30 hours/week including most week nights and week-ends (Sat. and Sun.), and occasionally during weekday hours. Work hours will vary with the progress of the data collection effort.

NORC is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer that values and actively seeks diversity in the
workforce. M/F/V/D
