HR Generalist

About Powder City

Powder City is a dietary supplement ecommerce business located in York, PA. We currently have around 40 employees.

HR tasks are growing and we are looking for someone to increase the marketability of open positions, increase the number of applicants, and continue to enhance employee benefits to increase retention.

Position Description

We are seeking an experienced Human Resources Generalist to assist with all aspects of HR, including position listing creation and advertising, hiring, onboarding, and benefits and policy revisions.

The HR Generalist meets with department managers to gauge current and future labor needs and acts as a liaison between management and employees on company policies and compensation.

Is this Position for You?

Prior HR and payroll experience is required. Experience revising employee benefits and negotiating with health care brokers is preferred.

This position requires strong written and verbal communication skills. These skills are used to gauge labor or skill gaps in the company with department managers and then to create compelling job listings based on these needs.

An HR generalist is ideal for someone who prefers a variety of tasks instead of specializing in only a few tasks.
