I felt like my real job wasn’t being the supplier director, but calling the website development team to make constant changes.
I have worked as a dispensary director at the same cannabis company for 4 years now.
I thought my job would be a bit easier once I got a full team trained, and my online marketing team knew what I expected. Lately, there have been a large number of changes in how my friend and I do business… Due to the pandemic, my friend Cal and I had to change how Cal and I did business. I had to call the online marketing company to have them update our lobby rules. Cal and I needed to let people know there was no contact delivery and option up. Cal and I opened a drive-thru window so people didn’t need to come into the dispensary; Every time a new change came through from the parent company, I had to notify my online marketing company. I finally broke down and had to ask my boss why the parent company didn’t send the information out to the online marketing company and have them do the changes for us. I was quite sure that the parent company knew who did all the marketing for his franchises. He said it was up to the store director. Now I had to make changes because Cal and I were offering delivery services. It was going to be easier for shut-ins, because they can go on the website and get all their marijuana products. We would send someone out to deliver the marijuana products. I liked this was something new Cal and I were offering, but I felt like a nuisance to our online marketing company, because they were quickly learning who I was just from the sound of my voice.
