Traffic Counter

Do you know when you want to start a business you actually have go to the location and do a survey to check how the crowd is and if you are going to survive for the next 6 months to one year? If it’s a small company then it is most likely the boss will actually do it themselves, but what about the big ones? Of course, they will hire someone to count the traffic and these people are called traffic counters.

So where do you apply for the job? Obviously you have to register with a job agency that provides job opportunities either for permanent, contract or part time. During registration, tell them that you want to be notified whenever a temporary vacancy is available. You might be wondering, who needs traffic counter? The ones who use the service are always big retail companies like Watson, Kenny Rogers and etc.

 So how about working hour? For short term and temporary job it usually lasts for 1 to 3 days. One day on weekdays and two days on weekends. You have to work from 10 am until 10 pm. You will alternate between working and resting for every half an hour. The pay is quite high at about RM100-200 per day. The work that you need to do is like doing census only that you work at a shopping mall. Moreover, this job does not require high skill level nor do you need any certifications.

What this job requires is dedication and honesty. Employer relies fully on you to find out whether the business venture is going to be successful or not in the future. As the name suggests, you count the number of people that pass through the area and record down their gender, race and age. You need to fill up the data for every hour.

You will be informed about the location where you have to do the traffic count. For example: the location is Carrefour and the lot is 19220. Make sure that you know the exact location of the lot. If you’ve never been to the location before, take an initiative to check out the place beforehand.

Don’t forget to bring along all the necessary items to help you do the job like stationery (book and pen) to keep the record of traffic count. As this job requires high level of concentration and tiring, you have to get enough rest to do this job well. You also have to make sure that you write down the data as instructed by the employer.

It is vital that you remain discreet and hidden from the public to make your job easier. Don’t spend your time speaking on the phone or talking with passersby as it will make you lose focus. Although you don’t have to report to anyone, your employer can come at any time to check on you.
When your working hour is over, you have to submit a report from the traffic count to your employer via email on the same night or the next morning at the latest.

Regarding your pay, it will be managed by the job agency hired by your employer. You will get your pay in two to three days through bank deposit.
The job is tiring but it is fun for those who dislike working in the office. It’s a short term job and relatively easy and the pay is very reasonable as well. How about you try applying for it?
