At a cannabis business, Arlin was responsible for the inventory at 2 dispensaries and had 4 employees in the inventory department–they expanded with a new dispensary, cultivation site, lab, and edibles kitchen, and 56 total employees.
He started a graveyard shift that consisted of auditing the stores, packaging, producing product, and general upkeep of the dispensary and cultivation.
He was proud of building such a reliable team of 50+– retention rate was great, and many went from packager to leadership roles quickly, building a system of accountability so everyone had responsibility for daily operations.
Arlin also worked for a cannabis business that did not allow the opening of dispensaries for a few months, but license owners could start their grow houses and begin cultivation of plants.
They started from scratch with everything from acquiring clones and seeds to the cultivation process, tracking everything with Biotrack.
He did not receive any warnings, fees, or complaints from the state during scheduled or surprise audits.
Arlin has experience working with a very strict transport process.
All vehicles needed to be company-owned and product surveillance was tight.
Arlin helped develop the standard operating procedures for transport and all inventory tracking and sales procedures.
He was responsible for hiring a team for the cultivation site and the dispensary–the inventory team consisted of 10 employees at both locations.
