My boss promoted me a couple of weeks ago. I got the job managing the cannabis shop downtown in Ann Arbor, michigan. I had to move for the job. That’s why it took a couple of weeks for me to arrive. The job came with a hefty salary, benefits, vacation days, and a retirement package. My parents live in Ann Arbor, Michigan, so I moved in with them for a short time. I will eventually find a place of my own to rent. I honestly didn’t know what shape the Ann Arbor, Michigan cannabis dispensary would be in when I arrived. I found out that several employees were fired when the last manager was let go. There must have been a reason why everyone left at the same time. I had to find a couple of applicants to work at the marijuana dispensary and I had to find them quick. The store was open for business and the assistant manager was barely keeping up. She had also been promoted and was previously a floor clerk. She really didn’t know the first thing about being the assistant manager. Both of us were way over our heads, but I promised her that we would figure out a way to make everything work if she trusted me and worked hard. The first thing I did was look for some applicants to put on the schedule. I needed to find applicants that had some experience in the marijuana industry. With everything happening at once, I definitely didn’t have time to train someone on the different types of marijuana. I needed a few applicants that could hit the ground running.
