At FLOWER CO., General Managers own the relationships amongst our network of distribution depots. This involves sharing our playbook and training our depot team members on how to use our tools and holding each depot accountable for our depot and driver performance metrics. In this role, the General Manager will leverage our existing Operation tools to support the supply chain and depot partners.

 

We’re a growing company, so you’ll get into the weeds using tools like Excel to ensure our P&Ls are balancing out correctly. Over time, you will work to identify opportunities to automate as much as possible as you work to create a repeatable playbook for other states. Because cannabis only became legal in 2018, the opportunities for creativity are endless. It’s entirely possible that you’ll be responsible for brainstorming and standing up new products. As more and more states increasingly make strides towards legalization new opportunities will continue to arise.

 

What you’ll do

· Develop a high-performing team that consistently delivers top-line sales growth

· Lead a team of Depot Coordinators who are accountable for managing all operational aspects of the distribution depots- such as maintaining a sufficient driver pool to deliver 100% of orders within their 90-minute windows

· Manage your depot’s P&Ls

· Develop standards and operating procedures including workplace safety, inventory control, and loss prevention.

· Develop programs to reduce driver churn

· Develop driver training and an incentive playbook to encourage world-class customer service

· Propose improvements to the tools we use to facilitate P&L management

· Manage budgets and set monthly and quarterly goals.

· Work alongside a diverse team: you’ll be surrounded by people who have never used a computer prior to joining our company, ex-tech employees, and even people who have had cannabis felonies expunged. Because cannabis was illegal for so long, we’re an industry unlike any other – and our team reflects that.

· Pass the good word along: help recruit more operations and business leaders to the team.

 

Who you are

· 5+ years’ experience managing multi-level teams

· 21 years old or older

· Have a high school diploma or equivalent

· Experienced in running day-to-day operations, managing inventory, pushing products, training new employees

· Proven ability to drive sales results, have the ability to analyze sales reports, able to identify business trends, and respond quickly

· Strong leadership skills with the ability to build, manage, and develop teams

· Exceptional interpersonal, communication, and customer service skills

· Superior time management and organization

· Meticulous and detail-oriented

· Low ego and have a willingness to do whatever needs to be done

· Familiarity with MS Office and various other business software (e.g. ERP, CRM)

· Must be able to sit or stand for hours at a time

· Must be able to lift/carry 30+ pounds

· Experience with the Cannabis industry is not a necessity, but a plus
