Good place to work You type data into a computer with speed and accuracy. It is a temporary position and getting work after is low because keyers are getting cut.

disrespectfull and unfriendly staff
Typical day is fast paced, no one seems to help each other out or respect each other, it's supposed to be a team effort in the mornings, but rarely seems to be, management don't have any people skills and don't deal with matters in a professional manner, they just get swept under the carpet and ignored. Its a job and pays the bills, that's it, very little job satisfaction, unfriendly place to work with lots of derogatory comments. Vehicles are a disgrace with being very tatty and not looked after. I would never recommend this job to anyone.
