The BC Liquor Distribution Branch (LDB) is holding a hiring day for the BC Cannabis Store in Quesnel next week, which is set to open later this year.
The new store is looking to hire one store manager, two assistant managers, six full-time cannabis consultants and eight part-time/auxiliary cannabis consultants.
To fill those positions, the BC LDB will be hosting a job fair in Quesnel on Tuesday, June 18 from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Sandman Hotel.
According to a press release, the event will serve as an opportunity for prospective employees to speak with representatives from the LDB and learn more about the positions available and required experience.
They will be collecting resumes at the event, however anyone who wishes to apply must also apply online.
“Successful candidates will receive extensive training, concentrating on social responsibility practices related to safety and responsible adult use, comprehensive product knowledge and customer service skills,” says the release. “Product knowledge and an understanding of the essential elements related to cannabis products and the industry are appreciated, but not required.”
BC Cannabis Store employees will be required to undergo an Enhanced Security Screening check.
The Quesnel store will open in West Park Mall, in units 23 and 25.
