PHOENIX — The operators of Arizona’s largest marijuana dispensary are looking to ramp up the company’s workforce in the coming weeks.
The Mint dispensary announced in a press release Wednesday that they plan on hiring dozens of employees across its retail locations in Tempe, Mesa, and a third location under construction in north Phoenix.
The dispensary was the first in the nation to build a cannabis kitchen and sell cannabis-infused food and drinks at its locations.
Positions range from retail managers to patient service representatives, accountants, graphic designers, pastry chefs, front-end cooks and trimmers, the release said.
The legalization of recreational marijuana in the Grand Canyon State in November has led to the dispensary’s hiring spree, according to the release.
The dispensary is hiring between now and April 15, with interviews conducted virtually and – once it’s safe to do so – in-person, according to the release.
