When I was hired to work at the marijuana shop by the beach, the place was a small hole in the wall that only sold dried marijuana flower and edibles.
Slowly, we have started adding more and more products to our portfolio.
We needed more employees to help us sell those products. When I started working at the marijuana shop, I used to do the schedule every week by hand. I used to take several hours each week to do the schedule and keep track of each employee and the amount of hours that they worked. Sometimes I would work on the dispensary schedule at home, because I didn’t have time to do that work. I would stay up late on a Saturday night when my wife wanted me to go to bed. Sunday was always the day when the schedule had to be up and ready for the employees. Recently, the owner of the company bought a software program that helps me keep track of each employee. The cannabis employee management software has help for scheduling, timekeeping, attendance, and even payroll services. The software took a couple of days to learn, but now I am a pro. I can use the software very easily and I even take calls from other local managers if they have problems with the software. The days of spending four hours making a schedule for one are over. Now it takes me about twenty minutes and everything is done. The software program changed the way I manage the business and it really freed up a lot of my time. I have energy and time for more important manager responsibilities now.
