"Companies rely on accounts payable clerks to provide quick, reliable, and secure payments to their vendors and other expenditures. Employers are looking for candidates with experience in tracking budget expenses, vendor relationships, data entry, and analyzing financial information. In order to stand out, be sure to come ready with examples of your experience and competence in the field."
How many invoices did you process in your last accounts payable position?
It has been many years since I have worked as an A/P clerk and I can not give an accurate estimate except to say that I was the only A/P clerk working for a mid-size manufacturing company.
I have worked AP at several places. My answer to this question would have been "more payables to enter than was humanly possible to handle." I used to have anxiety attacks on my way to that job. Finally quit.
I have had a lot of experience with accounts payable especially with the casino industry. In one month I've done between 1,500 to 2,000 invoices.
