I am not good at hiring people.
I just get along with everyone and hire them. If they seem nice, show up to the interview and want the job, I will hire them. If they give me a sob story, I will hire them. I have experienced some issues being a bleeding heart. I have experienced some really bad employees in my lifetime. I fortunately have come up with a really good solution when it comes to hiring and firing. I use a cannabis consultant when I need more people on my team. Planning, organizing, legal paperwork, etcThe cannabis consultant wears many hats. I have my medical marijuana consultant strictly handle hiring and firing of employees. When I need new people I call the guy in to interview them. I don’t even meet the potential candidates because I know I will ruin things. The medical marijuana consultant then has them undergo training and on a temporary hire process. He manages them, watches their performance and decides if they need to stay on or not. When an employee doesn’t do what they are supposed to, I have the marijuana business consultant do my dirty work. He handles reprimanding people and writing them up. He also does all the firing that I don’t want to do. It is nice not having to be the bad guy ever. It is great that I can have a great staff too. Everyone has different skills in business. I just know that I am not that good at reading people.
