I have had our eye on the supervisor position ever since I started working here.
Although everyone would guess that people who labor in a cannabis dispensary lack ambition, I guess I am the exception to the rule.
I got into this supplier because I saw how much it was growing, and wanted in on the action! You have to start somewhere, so I began with an entry-level task that suddenly turned into a full time budtender position. After that there was only 1 way I could advance in the corporation, and that was to become supervisor of this cannabis dispensary. This place is owned by a company that also owns thirty seven other cannabis dispensaries, with more being added every year. This means they need wonderful employees and people they can trust to help grow and expand the business. If I was undoubtedly ambitious I would be looking past any cannabis dispensary position and trying to get in the corporate office. The administration for the cannabis company to watch acquisitions, purchases of pot farms, and the high-level labor that makes the company so profitable. That is where the crucial money is, however at that level of the company there is no longer any cannabis. The people in the dispensaries are the 1s that handle the cannabis, the people in administration only deal with paperwork and contracts. So while I am ambitious and want to “move up in the world” I don’t want to transport outside of the cannabis dispensary, which is our comfort zone. Next stop – becoming supervisor!
