The federal government has contracted with Pearl Interactive Network to hire 764 workers in the Phoenix area for a call center that will field questions from people filling out the census online.

Eric Torgerson is the site leader for Pearl in Tempe.

“If anyone is having trouble, maybe with the URL or if they have a question about one of the questions on the survey," Torgerson says, people will be able to call an 800 number for assistance.

Torgerson says the Tempe call center is one of 10 across the country.

While the jobs only last until July, 85% of them are full time and offer benefits.

The Census will start in March 2020.
