Customer Consultant (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – May 6, 2018
If you enjoy the traditional stereotype of the cannabis industry and have no desire for career advancement, this company is for you. Many of the decision makers in the company are seasoned budtenders, often without college educations (or at least in applicable fields). The culture is stagnant and they insist on a "promotion from within" policy, which ultimately values complacency and acceptance of working for $12/hr for multiple years over innovation and education. The company does not align itself with its branding and wastes plenty of resources promoting an inconsistent image of what they stand for.
Like having many high-level responsibilities and low pay? Do you enjoy being treated like a child? Do you enjoy only having 1 working toilet to share between 150 people? How about the constant stench of burning tires and a polluted river during your short lunch where there is nothing to eat nearby to drive to? If you love terrible parking where cars are broken into regularly or anything else listed, feel free to joint this sweat shop.
Grower (Former Employee) – North Franklin Grow – March 13, 2018
Overstaffed, incompetent management. Terrible pay, with tenure being the only criteria for promotion. I'm stunned this company is still in business. If you are new to the industry and this is the only place that will hire you, my suggestion is to use them as a way to get experience while continuing to looking for other jobs.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – March 5, 2018
Just a terrible group of people running this company! Lack of communication or care to any degree. They will blow a lot of smoke up your rear...but it's all hot air! No substance! A lot of mispoken truths as well!
Hour lunch break, Health Insurance
Work Culture, Upper Management, Communication, Lack of Compassion, Confusion in Company Overall Vision
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – March 4, 2018
They hire upper management with no experience in the industry making it impossible to work efficiently. Even if you’ve invested years of work into their business, you are 200% replaceable with no hesitation. Intimidation is their number one tool. After a shining review you get a tiny raise.
No life outside work, constant fear of losing your job, pitiful raises.
Manager (Former Employee) – Denver – March 2, 2018
Stressful unsupportive work environment. They could care less about their dedicated, long term, hard working employees. Culture is depressing. Raises are annual if you're lucky enough to receive your review on time and even luckier if you got more than a few cents. Unethical business
Some great people on store level
Work life balance, lack of support, poor corporate leadership, no integrity
Budtender (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – October 15, 2017
you have 12 hour days, that start with getting tons of info which contradicts what another MOD said the previous day. There is no room for advancement, and even if you did advance, you're better off staying at the bud tender position, because after tips they don't pay better until you're the general manager at the store.
Budtender (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – January 9, 2017
Loved seeing the benefit of my job. People were so happy to do business with us and that made the job a lot easier. typical work day we saw about 50 people a person. I learned how to slow down and communicate with people and understand what they need.Hardest part was not seeing that many people during the day. Best part was seeing the benefit of the product for the customers.
