Different companies make different uses of employees hired to work as supply clerks, but many of the job duties are the same across a variety of positions. Supply clerks work with products on hand within a company, maintain inventories, and order and restock as necessary. Large healthcare providers or large corporations that have a high “burn rate” for office supplies and similar goods are typical employers for supply clerks, who ensure that employee efficiency doesn’t suffer for lack of having proper tools.
