Who wants to work for Willie?!
Willie Nelson’s cannabis company Willie’s Reserve has posted a number of job openings in the Colorado area, seeking employees to fill positions from bookkeeper and sales director to extractor and production manager.
Looking at the job listings, he’s not just looking for a fellow weed enthusiast; each position requires extensive experience and some serious credentials.
For example, the Lead Extractor position requires “strong interpersonal and communication skills,” a person who’s “highly motivated and detail oriented” in addition to two-plus years of experience in the cannabis and/or commercial lab industries. Not enough? A degree in chemistry, biochemistry or engineering and mechanics is preferred.
At least the pay is good — the position starts at $65,000 per year with performance-based incentives.
Willie’s Reserve plans to provide Coloradans with a wide selection of marijuana products and extracts from weed grown locally by independent farmers. The brand should hit the shelves this summer. Will you be the one selling it?
