Data Entry Clerk Interview Questions

Data Entry Clerk Interview Questions

A data entry clerk is required to be able to work quickly and efficiently, while maintaining a high, if not perfect, degree of accuracy. At times, tasking can be monotonous as high volumes of data will often need to be input into a required format or spreadsheet. You must be able to remain focused and motivated under these circumstances and it is likely that you will be given a work related exam to test your accuracy and attention to detail.

Preparing for the interview is essential and the first thing you should be looking into, is the company itself. Make sure you are fully aware of the type of information you will be working with and how that fits in to the overall structure of the company. Questions will be asked during the interview about this and clear, confident
answers will show a level of enthusiasm towards getting this role. 
Some sample questions are shown below. Remember this list is not exhaustive and full preparation is essential to improving your chances of success.

: What attracted you to applying for this post?

Answer: I believe that my strengths fit in with the job description well. I am capable of working quickly while maintaining high levels of accuracy. I have a keen eye for detail and enjoy working with computers. When evaluating my own skills it seems data entry is an ideal fit and an excellent choice of career for me.

Why? This shows your prospective employer that you are not using this job as a stepping stone to something else and fully intend to put your heart and soul into it.

Question: What are your strength's?

Answer:  As described earlier my main strength is the ability to work quickly and maintaining an accurate output. I also see myself as dependable and hard working.

Why:     Make your strengths specific to the job. This way the interviewer will view your answers in a more positive light.

Most asked interview questions:

Tell me about yourself
Why should we hire you?
Why do you want this job?
What is your greatest strength?
What is your greatest weakness?
What are your salary expectations?
What motivates you?
Give some examples of teamwork
Describe a difficult work situation project and how you overcame it

Good luck.

I would say you will be likely to have some type of assessments.  As you will be adding data, they want to make sure you are accurate, and not too slow.  Speed isnt as important as accuracy, but obviously if you can type fast or even touch type, this should put you at an advantage

Data entry can be repetitive and uninteresting, but it requires patience, skill and focus.

It is very important to be able to work in an organized, accurate fashion, but typing skills are also a plus. You may be given a small test to see how good you are at typing and data entry and also using computers, so make sure you understand what you're doing for the interview. There may be training available for certain things you may not know about, or certain things specific to that company, so don't worry too much if you are unable to do everything.
