I do expect them to do as I do, and never be high while working at the cannabis shop.
A chain is only as strong as the weakest link. This is a phrase I have on the wall over my office door, because it keeps me focused. This is my store, and it’s a great store, but I also have to hire a staff that is just as great. One bad employee might spoil the whole team, so my hiring practices are meticulous, and I hold all of my people to a very high standard. This may seem odd to you, that the owner of a cannabis shop is so intense and laser-focused, but I don’t smoke the weed here I just sell it. On weekends, or when I am on vacation, then I will enjoy some cannabis, but never while I am in my store. Don’t get high from your own supply, as the old adage goes. It is ridiculous to think that someone who works at a cannabis dispensary would never get stoned, so I don’t expect that from staff. I do expect them to do as I do, and never be high while working at the cannabis shop. I want my team to be professional, so everyone who visits us knows we are serious about quality cannabis, and quality customer service! To ensure my budtenders are motivated to stay sober, I offer a monthly bonus of free cannabis for all my people. All they have to do is be on time, and sober, for a whole month, and I give them $100 worth of any cannabis strain they choose. Good morale at work helps to keep the team happy and strong.
