Yes, you will definitely need to complete your AGLC SellSafe online as well as apply to be a Qualified Cannabis Worker. These are required by AGLC before you can even start work as one of our team members in a store. As these may take a while, it’s best to have these before you apply. For certain roles, such as Store Managers and above, you will be required to complete more extensive background checks and paperwork for the AGLC. If this is required, we will let you know during the recruitment process.
We are committed to paying competitive wages for the retail cannabis industry. As the industry is new, you can expect that the rates will start out as comparable to other retail positions.
