Ontario’s first legal Cannabis stores are now hiring. Those selected will make history as the first ever in-store employees to be hired at a legal cannabis store in the province. The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario announced last Thursday that they have officially issued the first three cannabis retail licenses in the province. The new cannabis storefronts include The Hunny Pot Cannabis Co. which is located in Toronto, The Niagara Herbalist in St. Catharine’s and Central Cannabis in the city of London.
Right now, both Central Cannabis and The Niagara Herbalist are hiring employees via Indeed.ca. Job advertisements for the exciting new stores began to pop up this week. Employers listed a number of requirements for candidates to consider before applying. Those wishing to work in the stores must display a high level of knowledge about the drug.
While Central Cannabis in London has kept the whole process professional by sticking to a more traditional job title “Sales Advisor”, other companies have taken their creative liberties to a much more interesting level. The Niagara Herbalist, for example, named the position they are hiring for “Budtender,” which is sure to look amazing on anyone’s future resume.
