Data Entry Clerk work environment

In several different industries, data entry clerks can operate, including but not limited to:

  • Administrative and support services
  • Hospitality
  • Local and administration
  • Healthcare
  • Transportation and warehousing

In an office setting, most data entry employees work full-time and may have overtime opportunities. There is part-time work, particularly for clerks employed in the hospitality sector. Although daily shifts take place for data entry clerks during normal business hours, clerks working for transport or hospitality organisations that are open around the clock will have to work on evenings, weekends and holidays.

These professionals usually spend the bulk of their shift sitting in front of a desk in their office environment, working on a computer and using the required office equipment, such as printers and fax machines, to complete data collection and organisational tasks.
