The Carolina Survey Research Laboratory (CSRL) conducts both telephone and mail surveys for university faculty and staff as well as external clients. Because our workload is client-driven, we hire temporary, part-time research telephone interviewers as needed throughout the year.

INTERVIEWER – Telephone interviewing is most successful in the evenings and weekends, therefore we primarily hire part-time temporary telephone interviewers to work evening and weekend shifts. Successful candidates are comfortable and professional on the phone; have computer experience in a Windows environment; can type approximately 30 WPM; are extremely accurate and detail oriented; and are able to use good judgment in applying a set of rules to ever-changing situations.

Previous experience in a similar position is preferred but not required. Applicants must be available to work a minimum of 4 shifts per week, including at least one 4 hour weekend shift per biweekly payperiod (twice a month). Depending on the study’s needs, the shifts typically available are M-Th 6-9pm; Saturdays 9:30am-1:30pm and Sundays 2-6pm and 6-9pm. Starting salary for interviewer positions is $10.61 per hour.
