I applied for a management position at a San Francisco marijuana dispensary.
I had an interview 3 weeks ago and it went very well. I had a second interview a couple of days later. The following day I received a phone call from the district manager of the marijuana dispensary in San Francisco. He wanted to congratulate me on getting the job. She told me that someone would call me in a couple of days to set up the next steps in the process. I honestly thought that might mean another interview. I didn’t hear anything for a week and I was starting to lose my mind. I wanted to call the district manager, but I was trying my best to show patience. When the district manager finally called, I was absolutely relieved. I started last Monday. The marijuana dispensary in San Francisco is about 45 minutes away from my home. It’s a lengthy drive, so I had to be sure to get the salary that I requested. When I first spoke with the district manager of the San Francisco marijuana dispensary, the job was being offered at $10,000 less per year than I felt the job was worth. I counter offered with a higher number. That is likely the reason why it took so long for them to get back to me. Maybe they were trying to find someone else with the same experience that was willing to work at the dispensary for $10,000 less each year. I know my worth and I wasn’t going to make the daily commute for anything less than $85,000 a year.
