Some large multi-state operators are hiring, including Curaleaf and Trulieve. The latter is currently hiring for between 200 to 300 positions and has hired about 300 people since mid-March, Steven Ferrell, Trulieve’s director of human resources, said in an email. Reports Cannabis Business Times

Out of these Trulieve positions, about 60% are in retail, 30% are in cultivation and production, and 10% are in call-center, corporate and all other positions, Ferrell said. About 75% of the positions are hourly, and the rest are salaried, he said.
