A client of ours is launching 2 new marijuana dispensaries in Las Vegas and is seeking a General Manager to join their dream team! You will be responsible for overseeing and coordinating the activities of two retail marijuana stores (dispensaries). This position will give the opportunity to establish and launch new locations.
We believe in treating customers and employees with care and compassion. The profits generated from these stores will be given back to the community through large charitable donations. The business model of these stores is unlike any other in the focus on corporate social responsibility. Having a team that aligns with the values of the company and takes pride in their people skills and values contributing to the community is crucial to the success of this company's mission.

What success looks like
People who have performed well at this job are especially skilled at managing people and managing projects at the same time. Successful individuals tend to be skilled at looking at the big picture and thinking strategically rather than getting stuck in the weeds. People that thrive in this position are good at setting expectations with lower level managers and collaborating with them in running each of the dispensary locations. The GM should be comfortable and not easily overwhelmed with managing up (executives) and managing down (managers and employees). A successful GM is capable of setting a success strategy for the company and leading the two operations toward achieving the same goal while maintaining the quality of product and service at both locations.
Who should not apply
Anyone easily overwhelmed should not apply for this position, simply because at times, the dispensary can be a fast paced environment and the Manager has to be capable of maintaining admin items such as interpreting reports and attending meetings, while also remaining available for lower management needs, and the individual needs of each store. Also do not apply if you are not comfortable driving. Going between locations will likely be necessary.
