Sr. Benefits Specialist

Pet Food Express needs a Sr. Benefits Specialist to own benefits administration and to help lead our growing HR team. Reporting to the HR Director, this position spends about 60% of the time focused on our benefits programs -- everything from enrollments and benefits invoice reconciliations to 401(k) administration -- assuring that related information is correctly entered to payroll.

The rest of your time would be spent focusing on the bigger picture of HR processes as a whole. We’re looking for an office leader who will mentor junior members of the team, solve problems and take on improvement projects with gusto. You’ll keep the wide variety of HR programs and functions humming, including management of compliance postings, file management, recognition, and service awards, just to name a few.  If you have this unusual mix of detail-oriented subject-matter expertise and a natural interest in people development and process improvement, we want to meet you.

This could be a great opportunity for an HR/Benefits Specialist looking to utilize his/her leadership talents, or for a talented HR professional to make the transition from a smaller organization to a growing mid-size company.

What you'll bring:

  • Mastery of benefits administration and related payroll functions
  • A true love of reconciliation and the nitty-gritty
  • Passionate about streamlining processes, with enough patience to solve challenging problems in a team environment
  • Technical savvy – you’re able to create reports and make complex software work for you
  • Comfort with providing expertise and support in all areas of HR and payroll
  • A leadership mentality with a strong focus on team goals and employee development
  • 3-5 years of HR experience at the specialist and/or management level.
  • PHR or SHRM-CP desired.

What you'll love:

  • A small, collaborative team that makes an impact
  • A management team that cares about your professional development
  • A generous store discount for employees and family members
  • Competitive pay including vacation, holiday, and sick pay
  • A pet friendly work environment
  • Health insurance, 401(k) match, profit sharing, and other great benefits—even pet insurance!
