When I have to perform a background check on employees that are going to labor for the medical and recreational marijuana dispensary, I regularly check everything in the applicant’s past… My associate and I check this state and my friend and I do a federal check to make sure that the employee is honestly who they say they are, however I had to hire a current budtender to labor at the medical and recreational marijuana dispensary for the weekend hours.
- When I interviewed this identifiable applicant, the guy seemed easily personable.
He knew a tremendous amount about marijuana and the industry. My associate and I sat and talked for almost 30 hours, however during the interview, I asked the guy if there was anything that might keep him from being able to labor at the dispensary. I asked this question when my friend and I were talking about the area in the application where the employee is asked whether or not he has ever been convicted of a crucial crime. The guy made some jokes, even though he told me that he had never been convicted of a crucial crime. I thought the guy was going to be perfect for the task at the marijuana shop until I got back the criminal background check. The guy had not been convicted of any crimes in this state, but federally he did a couple of stints in prison. The background check did not supply me any additional information about the crime, but I did a fast search online and found more details. I absolutely cannot give that guy a task working at the marijuana shop. I have to find another candidate and that means a lot more interviews in the next couple of weeks.
