This month is the 420 celebration week.
The actual 420 holiday is on Thursday, but throughout the month both of us are going to have lots of sales and specials, we’re going to have prizes and free giveaways. The dispensary is going to be tied up all week, because of the sales and the holiday. There are lots of events all across the city, and i gathered my stuff on Monday morning before the front doors opened. I told all of the budtenders that I was going to offer incentive bonuses to the crew members that sold the most items throughout the day, then on Monday I picked our beach home brand pre-rolls. The winner of the contest was actually an employee that has only been with us for more than five weeks, then he sold 70 of the pre-rolls and they are actually more expensive than some of the other pre-rolled marijuana joints in the dispensary. I didn’t really expect the crew to be so gleeful about the contests, but they appreciated being able to win a prize and I found a way to motivate the staff to upsell on every customer sale. This week’s sales are going to be through the roof and that will help myself and others gain my bonus as a manager. I get a healthy cash bonus if both of us meet or exceed all of the yearly sales quotas. It’s a single of the reasons why I decided to get the crew excited. I believe in trickle-down bonuses. When I win, both of us all win, then all of us are a single large team and both of us are only as strong as our weakest budtender.
