Data Entry Clerk Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Data Entry Clerk in Anaheim:
"TO BE OR NOT TO BE.....Data Entry Clerk or Backup Clerk."
Establish what exactly your job "Title" is! Are there specific duties that are required of you or are you there to just "back-up" co-workers. What do you do when backing up a co-worker becomes your regular unassigned task, who do you go to? Remember...there is no way on God's green earth that we will all get along, treat your co-workers (no matter how much they may irritate you") with courtesy & respect. If you are not happy with your position and you have exhausted all avenues for a working relationship with your employer/co-workers....start looking for a new job, go back to school but do something to change your situation.

Data Entry Clerk in Salt Lake City:
Get a job doing something else. I had other skills that allowed me to get a higher income but unfortunately those skills are not needed--due to automation.
