Are you a self-motivated, people person looking to make meaningful contributions through work that impacts the nation? NORC's field interviewer opportunity offers a flexible role where you will engage with all types of people in the area to collect data and information about people's experiences as Medicare beneficiaries. Our field interviewers pay close attention to details, making sure all data is appropriately recorded so our researchers can use the information you collect to learn more about how our world works. Own your workload with a great amount of autonomy, while still being a team player sharing accurate and thorough data reports with colleagues in a timely fashion.

Primary goals of the project are to provide information on the Medicare beneficiary population that is not available in CMS administrative data and that is uniquely suited to evaluate or report on key outcomes and characteristics, determine expenditures and sources of payment for all services used by Medicare beneficiaries, ascertain all types of health insurance coverage among Medicare beneficiaries and relate this coverage to payment for specific services, and track changes in key beneficiary metrics over time.

  • Attend NORC's paid training to ensure you have the tools you need to be a successful field interviewer. In-person trainings will take place in the Chicago area in mid to late June. We'll pay to get you to the trainings!

  • The data collection starts in June 2019. The data collection period is open ended. A new wave of data collection launches every four months as the prior wave comes to a close. Some weeks are busier than others, however, interviewers can expect to have work on MCBS for as long as the project stays in the field and they meet all efficiency, response rates, and quality standards.

  • Actual hours worked will vary during the assignment


  • Present evidence of identity and authorization to work in the United States (I-9 documentation).

  • Have a valid driver's license, have unlimited use of an automobile in working condition, and present proof of auto liability insurance (exceptions can be made for applicants from major urban centers.

VIEW JOBS 5/18/2019 12:00:00 AM 2019-08-16T00:00 If you're like a lot of people, you're excited to get your career moving. But where do you begin? Most of our Field Techs start their careers at Spectrum fresh, enthusiastic to learn and earn. By the time they complete our established training program, they are capable men and women, well-educated on our systems and equipment, applying the range of tools and techniques they learned. With a focus on growing your skills you can quickly become a valued technician like the ones our customers trust to deliver high-quality Spectrum services. Get Next-Level Know-How Getting started means getting up to date with all that Spectrum has to offer. We'll teach you to install and service Spectrum products in our customers' homes. You'll get at least four weeks of fully paid, comprehensive, hands-on training. We're talking power tools, cable and telecom equipment, meters and apps, computers and software, pole and ladder skills and safety, and more. We provide the gear, and the knowledge you gain will make you a valuable in-home pro. There's also support after you've completed training in case you need a quick refresher or higher-level backup. Climb the Ladder at Spectrum Are you ready to see how far you can go? There are always opportunities to grow and succeed at Spectrum, and we're proud when our people achieve more. It shows in the fact that so many of our Field Operations supervisors, managers, and directors started as Field Techs themselves. They know exactly what it takes to thrive and how to best support their team, whether that means onsite backup or being available to talk through issues. They started where you are now and can help you build a strong foundation for a career that progresses as you do. Physical Requirements This is a physical job, so you should have the strength and flexibility to: * Move over all types of terrain in all kinds of weather while carrying tools and equipment * Operate weight-bearing equipment, such as gaffs, safety harnesses, extension ladders (that can weigh up to 90 pounds and extend 32 feet), and carry fully loaded tool belts. Technical Requirements Additional minimum requirement skills and abilities include: * Using handheld devices and operate computer or test equipment (for example, signal level meters, ohm meters, handheld applications etc.), including a personal computer and software * Familiarity with computer operating systems and a variety of consumer communications devices (e.g., smartphones, routers, modems, converters, and wireless devices) * A valid driver's license with satisfactory driving record within company-required standards. Travel to and from assigned territories and company facilities, including during bad weather, is essential. In The Field Every day brings something different, so Field Techs should be comfortable working in a lot of different settings, like: * High, outdoor places (for example, telephone poles and roofs) in all weather conditions, possibly for extended periods of time * In residences, potentially in poorly ventilated areas such as attics, basements and/or crawlspaces where there may be dust, dirt, noise, insects, rodents, pets, and cleaning solutions * The ability to work overtime, weekends, second shift or participate in an on-call rotation when scheduled.
