TriMet is recruiting Mobile Surveyors for an upcoming on-board survey project (Orange Line After Study). We will collect origin/destination, on/off stop, and demographic data from riders using tablets on-board TriMet buses and MAX Light Rail. The project will begin in mid to late September 2017 and continue until February 2018 or later. Benefits are a flexible work schedule, $14 per hour pay on as-needed basis, free monthly bus passes, and involvement in an important data collection project.
The qualifications we are looking for are:
Surveyors will need to be able to get to and from any point in the TriMet transit network at the start time and end time of a route. Those bilingual in Spanish, Vietnamese, Mandarin, Cantonese, Russian and ASL are encouraged to apply.
Applications will be accepted until June 21st, 2017. Interviews will be completed by the end of June and training will take place in September at our offices in downtown or Southeast Portland.
We would very much appreciate your student recommendations. Please have them email a PDF copy of their cover letter, resume, and one letter of recommendation to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line titled: “TriMet Mobile Surveyor”.
