A soon-to-be open medical marijuana dispensary in Westmoreland County is looking for employees.

RISE Latrobe, which will be located on on Beatty Country Road in Unity Township, is hosting a job fair to find eligible employees for hourly retail staff, including patient care specialists and shift supervisors.

On Thursday , interested applicants can meet with RISE employees from noon to 7 p.m. at Springhill Suites on Route 30 in Unity, near Arnold Palmer Regional Airport.

RISE Dispensaries is owned and operated by Green Thumb Industries, a national cannabis consumer packaged goods company. With dispensaries across the country, Green Thumb Industries sells several branded cannabis products including Rythm, Dogwalkers, The Feel Collection and Beboe.

Green Thumb Industries has 11 manufacturing facilities and 77 retail licenses, employing about 650 people. Across Pennsylvania, the company has retail locations in York, Steelton, Erie and Carlisle, with 12 new locations coming soon, according to their website.

The Latrobe location is slated to open in mid-June, according to Grace Bondy, senior communications specialist at GTI.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
