I have worked in a dispensary for four year. I like my job. I am employed as a full time budtender for a local dispensary. I am proud so say I have the highest sales in the store. I am knowledgeable in cannabis products and what customer want and need. I have a friendly demeanor and I provide guidance when someone walks in the store. I can identify the repeat customers and inform them about new products they might like. I also recognize the first time buyers and help them select the type of product which is best for them. Since I am very good at my job, I received a promotion. In a few weeks, I will be the manager of the dispensary. I am very happy about this. I have already completed marijuana science training as well as budtender sales training. I did this when I was initially hired. I went through a bunch of fake sales pitches and got some helpful tips on how to best approach customers. I learned which products do what and how to make sure people have a good experience. Since I am being promoted, I now need to learn how to be a manager. I will once again be taking instruction, this time for dispensary team education. These courses are about encouraging my budtenders to do better. I have learned to constantly be coaching. I need to be providing them helpful hints and urging them to ask more questions. Also, the company advocated weekly accountability meetings with my staff. We need to set goals as an individual and as a team during the meetings. Finally, the training course stressed that the budtenders should always take pride in their accomplishments in the industry and keep a positive attitude.
