On Sunday, a new and soon-to-be open Las Vegas business hosted a rather unique job fair for those underemployed individuals residing in Clark County, Nevada. And while the job fair was a smashing success, netting hundreds of applicants hoping to obtain gainful employment in Nevada’s medical marijuana industry, hundreds more are expected to apply online over the coming days.
Sparking an interest in gainful employment for many in Clark County, Blum announced their intention to open 3 new medical marijuana dispensaries located just 1 mile from the Las Vegas strip. As such, they’re staffing up ahead of their anticipated grand openings scheduled for later this year.
According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, Blum’s first collective should be open for business by the first of March. As for the other two dispensaries and their Grand Opening timeline, Blum has a targeted every patient’s favorite date on the calendar – 4/20.
Once up and fully operational, the three newest dispensaries in Clark County will be located just a hop, skip, and a jump from the Las Vegas Strip.
Converging on The Palms Hotel & Casino Sunday afternoon, hundreds of potential applicants sat around anxiously waiting for their name to be called. Some texted, others ate, and most daydreamed about being a bud tender at one of Las Vegas’s newest medical marijuana collectives – patiently waiting for their turn to be questioned.
Sunday’s applicants were interviewed for 7 primary positions, ranging from delivery driver to “bud tenders“. Blum’s starting pay rate will hover around $13-$14 per hour, plus benefits. Obviously, some retail experience is preferred, but not absolutely required… particularly for those with an in-depth knowledge of today’s many strains.
Applicants that participated in yesterday’s event should find out in about two weeks if they have a new job in the Las Vegas Valley. Despite the success of yesterday’s job fair, there’s still time for people to apply online at Terra Tech’s website.
