The multi-state retailer looks to fill 330 jobs between their two locations
Planet 13 is quickly adapting to the steady uptick in Las Vegas tourist traffic by expanding its dispensary floor, adding 40 cash registers, and hiring 80 additional employees. The jobs numbers are even higher for the new Orange County California SuperStore (see renderings here). Approximately 250 workers will be hired in 2021 for Planet 13’s first expansion outside of Nevada.
“We’re very pleased that Vegas is coming back to life and feeling like Vegas again, and we’re happy that as tourists return, we’re able to hire for multiple positions immediately,” said Larry Scheffler Co-CEO of Planet 13. “Plus, in the next few months, hundreds of more jobs will become available at our new SuperStore in Santa Ana California.”
The 80 jobs in Las Vegas will be filled as soon as possible as visitors flock back to Vegas with many hotels reporting their highest occupancy numbers since before the pandemic was declared in March of 2020.
For the Orange County SuperStore, the objective is to fill approximately 250 jobs by July, 2021. Available positions in California and Nevada include management, inventory, human resources, packaging, sales floor associates and delivery drivers for the dispensary, along with restaurant workers for Planet 13’s popular Trece restaurant.
Located inside the Planet 13 Las Vegas Entertainment SuperStore Complex, Trece Eatery + Spirits is a culinary experience with out of this world signature Mexican dishes, artisan pizzas, and specialty cocktails. Trece also features 24 beers on tap.
“Our brand-new beautiful greenhouse restaurant will light up your senses while you embark on a flavorful journey,” said Manny Sanchez, Executive Chef of Trece.
