    HR Generalist - Peoria Heights, IL


    Don’t make me use my HR voice! You can’t spell hero without HR. Nothing surprises me anymore – I work in HR! Can’t fix crazy, but I can document it! Have you ever wanted a mug with one of those phrases on it? If yes, you might be the Chaos Coordinator … well, the official title is HR Generalist … that we are looking for! Thankfully, you are not like Toby Flenderson in The Office, because we are not looking for a milquetoast, spiritless pushover that will make us scream, “No! God! No!” We want someone with your drive and good humor to bring a balance of empathy and firmness to our team.

     As an HR Generalist, you will round out our HR team of 3 and will be responsible for:

    • Benefits
    • Safety/OSHA
    • Work Comp
    • 401(k)
    • Unemployment
    • Any other programs or policies related to compliance and employee relations

    As our company is growing, so is our HR team. Sherman’s is a growth-oriented company with big plans for the future! And there are lots of opportunities to refine our people processes. Your experience and knowledge will be invaluable in getting us ready for what comes next.

    Here are the qualifications you’ll need:

    • Bachelor’s degree
    • Minimum 3 years hands-on experience
    • Thorough understanding of Federal and Illinois employment law
    • Detail oriented *

    * We know you are tired of reading that everyone is “detail oriented” on their resumes – but we really are looking for someone who is super detail oriented - our own persnickety paragon of principle … meticulous marvel … careful conqueror … scrupulous superhero… exemplar of exacting … you get the idea…


    Here’s what you can expect from us:

    • Strong culture of development, rooted in our Core Values
    • Collaborative environment where you are encouraged to speak the truth
    • Strong employee discount program (we sell really nice things - wink wink, nudge nudge)
    • Paid time off
    • Medical/vision/dental insurance
    • 401k with a better-than-most employer match
    • Competitive wage based on your experience
    • That HR mug you’ve been wanting

    Now, the retail industry and its related personnel issues are challenging. It’s your quirky idiosyncrasies and passion for people that will help you excel as an HR Generalist at Sherman’s. We are goofy. We are passionate about our people. We are ambitious. And we are ready to talk with you! Apply on our career website
