While Millions File for Unemployment, Trulieve Hiring Hundreds
With over 20 million Americans filing for unemployment in the last four weeks alone, it may seem like there are no jobs to be had. But, as reported by Cannabis Business Times, at least one company is on a hiring spree. Trulieve, a cannabis company with retail, cultivation, and production businesses, is hiring throughout the U.S. for a large number of positions, most of which are hourly.
According to the article, Trulieve has already hired 300 people since mid-March, and they are looking to hire 200-300 more as soon as possible. The open positions are mostly in their retail cannabis locations, with 30% in their cultivation operation and about 10% of openings in their call-center and corporate departments.
Trulieve says 75% of their current open positions are hourly, and some positions are remote. It’s a sign of hope in an economy where unemployment is expected to rise as high as 30%.
