JOB DESCRIPTION:

NORC at the University of Chicago is currently seeking outgoing, persuasive Field Interviewers to help with contacting screening and interviewing respondents for the 2019 Survey of Consumer Finances (SCF). The SCF is a study occurring every three years which gains critical insights into the economic circumstances of American families. It is the only systemic source of data available to policy-makers concerned with inflation, unemployment, interest rates, and national saving. The SCF is funded by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (FRB).

ABOUT FIELD INTERVIEWERS:

NORC field interviewers are vital to our nationwide survey research operation. We talk to people from every conceivable walk of life in person to obtain information on issues such as health care, employment, and education. The interview is the basic tool by which we are able to provide this data and as the interviewer, you'll have the ability to make that possible.

The work we do at NORC has lasting social significance: the data we gather helps legislators and policy-makers determine the best course of action for the welfare of all Americans.

Examples of NORC field projects include:

  • An evaluation of whether a new community policing strategy is effective at reducing crime and increasing public safety while maintaining good community-police relations.

  • A project that is the most important source of data about the lives of adults and young adults in the U.S. since 1979. Many respondents have participated in this survey since the commencement.

  • A study which gathers data about families' need for child care and the availability of child care in their communities.

  • A project which combines interview questions, biomeasures (height, weight, blood spots), and information about participant's location to advance our understanding of activity spaces older Americans live in during their day to day lives, and how that changes as they age.

  • An ongoing study which collects key details about financial assets and liabilities from households in all income brackets so that the sponsor can understand how the economy is changing.

REQUIRED SKILLS:

  • Interviewers are expected to follow the Basic Interviewing Techniques as described in their training.

  • Assignments may vary based on the number of Respondents in specified locations. We attempt to cluster assignments geographically, but it may be necessary to travel longer distances in some situations. Interviewers must be willing to drive 50-100 miles or more, one way, to contact area respondents as needed.

  • Interviewers must work with urgency in making initial contact with respondents

  • Interviewers must work in a productive and efficient manner.

  • Field interviewers are responsible for documenting all contacts and activity in the record of calls in our case management system in a consistent and professional manner.

  • Data quality expectations for this project will be outlined in training and throughout the data collection period. Each interviewer is expected to meet or exceed data quality targets.

OTHER REQUIREMENTS:

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

  • Have a valid driver's license (exceptions can be made for applicants from major urban centers such as New York City)

  • Present proof of auto liability insurance and unlimited use of an automobile in good working condition

  • Have working home phone number

  • Ability to carry a laptop computer, survey documents, and supplies

  • Availability to attend in-person, paid training sessions (no exceptions)

AVAILABILITY:

This is a part-time, temporary position, usually 20-25 hours per week, with short periods of up to 40 hours per week. This is primarily work during evenings and weekends, where we expect interviewers to work 4-5 shifts per week, with 4-6 hours worked per shift, including one weekend day. Actual hours worked will vary during the assignment.

The data collection period runs from March through December 2019.
