It’s really important to be diligent when interviewing candidates for a position at the medical and recreational marijuana dispensary.
- I started working at the shop about 5 years ago and I worked my way up to the manager spot 2 years ago.
Since then I have managed to increase the sales at the marijuana dispensary each year. Last month we started offering free delivery services. We were previously charging a $5 flat fee, no matter how big or small the order. When we stopped charging the flat fee, delivery service orders started to increase. When I started advertising the free delivery services in the store and on our website, I had a huge influx of orders. I had to hire another delivery driver quickly. My boss told me to hire the first person that looks good on paper, but I told the guy that it was best to interview even if we were short on staff. I wanted to make sure that we got a delivery service driver that had a good resume, clean driving record, and knowledge about marijuana and marijuana sales. I interviewed one young man that had a really good resume. He previously worked at a marijuana dispensary down south. He moved with his girlfriend to our city and started working at a different marijuana dispensary. He quit working at that place a month ago. The kid had experience and he was willing to work as a delivery driver, so I didn’t even bother calling any of his contacts or previous employers. My boss wanted someone fast and this kid was perfect for the position.
