Our story began in 1903, and since then, we’ve been a food company powered by deep values, a family atmosphere and our very own kind of entrepreneurial spirit.

The Georgia Main Food Group (and its banners: IGA and Fresh St. Market) are recruiting for an efficient payroll clerk to be responsible for all tasks involved in processing payroll in a people-centric, values-focused company.

Each week, every week, on repeat, including timeclock/time capture, data entry and integration, reconciliation and remittances, year-end and T4’s, along with new hires and terminations. It’s the full meal deal!

As a key member of a small and highly collaborative team, you will:

  • Administer full cycle payroll processing and year end processes
  • Compile payroll data and maintain records in accordance with internal payroll processes
  • Prepare computer input forms and enter payroll data into the system for the efficient delivery of payroll and ensuring employees receive their pay on time.
  • Prepare reports and statements related to payroll; maintaining compliance with financial, legal, audit and/or administrative reporting requirements

  • Minimum of 2 years’ hands on, current payroll processing experience.

  • Attention to detail, together with the ability to effectively organize and prioritize work while remaining flexible and willing to meet the needs of employees.
  • Genuine passion about internal and external experiences and desire to ensure a positive experience with every interaction.
  • Exceptional written communication as well as proficiency in the use of payroll systems (ADP WFN) and the Microsoft Office Suite.
  • Tech savvy with a demonstrated understanding of available technologies, how to use them, and the value they provide.
