This Morning: Medical Marijuana Career Fair hoping to fill 200 positions

WINDSOR TWP. (WLNS) - If you're looking to get in on the medical marijuana industry, there's a career fair today where you could score a new job.

One local company is looking to hire 200 people in the next year.

Those who make the cut could start working before December.

Investors for Green Peak Innovations bought a slice of the 131-acre medical marijuana business park in Windsor Twp.

A park described on it's website as the largest medical marijuana business park east of the Mississippi.

"This will be a park, industrial park essentially for medical cannabis companies that want to get started here," says Molly Vansyckle, HR Director for Green Peak Innovations.

As construction is nearly complete, Vansyckle says the company is looking to fill 50-100 jobs in the next two months and about 200 over the next year.

"We need to fill positions from seed to sale, so that means everything from the beginning of the grow process up until the point where we're ready to distribute and sell our product," says Vansyckle.

She says the pay ranges from $17-$22 per hour depending on the job.

However though it's a medical marijuana company, she says there's no smoking on the job and there is a drug policy in place.

"It is work, it's a job. it's not any different than going to make products at someplace else. You're still coming to work and making a product here so you cannot get high from being around the product that's not how that works..not even close," says Vansyckle.

She says the company has high hopes to be one of the leaders in the industry so they're looking for professional mid-Michigan workers who want to be part of the process.

"Just anybody who wants to come and work hard and get this started for us," adds Vansyckle.

She says you don't need previous experience with medical marijuana, but you do need to bring a resume.
