    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -pay -benefits -clean processes -retirement benefits -salary (but comes with no “off” time unless you’re literally out of state and even then if something can be fixed remotely, I would be expected to fix it)

    Cons

    -little to no work/life balance - I’m always on call, working daily even if I’m “off” because I’m salary -no prep or thought of moving up after the store manager position -You get “plugged” into the online support system with other managers (which is mostly great because it creates an instant place to get your questions answered but there is not much over site or help from an actual boss.

    Hard Work, Long Term Reward

    Aug 23, 2022 - Lead Guide in Jacksonville, FL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Higher than average pay for the medical marijuana industry. Lots of stores with opportunities for advancement considering high turnover rate.

    Cons

    Most entry level jobs are only part-time and advancement only happens if someone quits or drops dead. Underpaid for how busy the stores are and difficult the customers can be. Same cons as any sort of corporate job (male higher ups are unsupportive and vaguely misogynistic). Your happiness here is entirely dependent on if you have a great store manager who communicates and is flexible.

    Throw Spaghetti at the Wall See what sticks - GREED and FRAUD

    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The fast growth of the company was exciting at first. Lots of opportunity for advancement

    Cons

    This company lied to me, stole from me, chewed me up and spit me out. Moved me halfway across the country, even knowing they were going to sell out soon. Lied to all employees during the sell out process, didn't pay them what they promised and many were demoted from management to part time retail, mostly the older ones in their 50s/60s that Cookies didn't want. Absolutely incorrigible.
