I started working at a medical marijuana clinic 2 years ago.
I was a medical marijuana patient myself and that’s how I ended up with a job at the dispensary.
There was a hiring sign in the lobby one day when I went to the marijuana store to buy medical products. I inquired about the job and filled out an application on the same day. Two days later, I received a phone call from the marijuana dispensary manager. I gave my old job two weeks’ notice when I was hired. There was no way I was going to give up a chance to work in the medical marijuana clinic. The store is busy with people all of the time. Things have been especially hectic since the laws changed and recreational marijuana is now legal. We have twice as much stock coming to the store each week and we are consistently out of products. Marijuana sales have been crazy high since legalization took place. There are more and more dispensaries popping up in the city too. I don’t believe the extra dispensaries will hurt our business, because we have the lowest prices in the city. Still, it will be interesting to see what happens when this particular marijuana dispensary has competition. Right now we are the only place in the neighborhood. All of that will change when the new store opens for business in the fall.The owner of this business is ready for the competition. He already has advertising ideas and incentives set up for repeat customers to return to our store.
