Worst employer in the industry.

Ohhh and if you work for harborside good luck being paid properly! when I resigned I was paid for half my time, nobody has direct lines to call everyone has a harborside gmail nobody replies to. And everyone is new and use the excuses " were expanding and learning as we go" well you better figure out labor laws and employment laws these dont change because weed is legal in our state. Excuses after excuses... sorry but I cant smoke enough weed to deal with ignorance at this level. Do yourself a favor purchase elsewhere and dont be fooled by the nice looking dispensaries it's all designed to fool you from seeing the unfortunate truth that they use slaves to sell you high priced product and Steve is collecting like Scrooge McDuck.

I took a job working in Harborsides green house and I resigned after the third shift. First off I do not take lightly to being lied to. secondly I do not believe in any AG company who exploits poor hispanic people because they come here on work on a Visa trying to earn a living wage. Harbor Side lies about having 85% work force that is migrant employees most being put in greenhouses that are uncontrolled unsafe and extremely hot. I made several comments about "what do the 5 of us do that speak only English when one of the employees who barely speak just Spanish and no English faints or gets hurt how do we communicate that with no radios and no help" they acted like It's a billion dollar question! MOST UNSETTLING IS THE PRODUCTION ROOMS! THEY ARE MILTARY ARMED GUARDS WALKING BACK AND FORTH WHILE YOU SEE CROWED TABLES FILLED WITH MORE MIGRANT WORKER! Dont be fooled by Steve's smoke screen his only passion is making as much money as possible. sad cause I trusted him 👎👎

Had a pretty good experience - Check it out

Went up to the bay and picked up some new genetics from these guys. They had a good selection. In general the bud quality wasn't what I expected, but that's why I grow my own,

Not that nice

I was sent away because my recommendation was ripped but all the information about me was clear to see. I guess they care more about how fancy your rec looks than if the information is obtainable from it. I've spent a lot of money at Harborside in my time but I don't think I will anymore. My doctors recommendation was ripped from using it a lot pulling it out of my wallet always and unfolding it. I wouldn't even really care but my friend was inside waiting for me and the guard went inside to talk to the manager and see if I could come in even though they let me in 3 days prior no problem... well anyways as he goes inside he says "the ripper" is back I guess its there codename for "me" and then comes back out and says they cant accept it I tell them I was just there 3 days prior and he said well they must have told you next time to bring a new copy of the rec but they never did and they didn't care to hear it.

Not the place for dabbers.

Came in on 420 for the deals called ahead said it wasn't busy sounded busy but my friend had never been so i was stuck. when we got there it was packed took about an hour n a half with the new patient with me. tried to use the express line but you can't smell the hash or clear and they only had one shatter that was said to be stable but could see was buddering(i actually got to see that one) it looked stable but was in a fat bead instead of being flat on the parchment. The clear i got was great, the little viles you give them in are cruel and unusual for a lot of patients! everything else here is usually awesome all the time.

Safe and clean access

For as many patients as these guys have I believe they are the prime example for California dispensaries. Yes there are sometimes going to be lines but that's what happens when you have the selection they do. (but I've seen multiple times staff escort elderly and handicap to the front)
Security is always in front one or two guys followed by a door opener and metal detector which I appreciate as I have been to many dispensaries where people are smoking in the parking lot and security is so high they can't open their eyes too even look at your ID!
My biggest appreciation is the amount of tested flowers and sungrown selection. Nothing compares! I can even ask strain genetics and staff is always friendly to find out from one another.
Wish the prices included tax and the membership points did more but all and all my favorite spot in CA!

Bad Attitude

It looks nice and clean and most of the cashiers are nice and the meds are good. My experience is the front office people and their condescending, we are here to do you a favor, attitude is hard to put up with when you're in severe pain. Parking lot security is fun too, you're a suspect no matter what and they eye you like you're up to no good going in and out of the store. I keep thinking a wheelchair is in my near future and having to deal with these guys to get in the store will be intolerable.

I've shopped here for over a year and I'm tired of making excuses to myself for their behavior. This place is convenient for me, but: The web site is not well maintained; they don NOT answer emails and; there is no place to sit in the line, so if you have a spinal injury and can't stand for long, go some where else or go home and suffer for the next 2 weeks as I do every time. Deliveries? If you can make it past their signup page I guess it works. I tried but it reset my information over and over again. Calling them for help will work if you don't say anything more than to respond to their questions. I made the mistake of complaining about the clunky website. I got an ear full for that.

Your dollar is your vote. I'm voting with my dollars for any thing else but harborside. Even dealers are better deal with than the front staff of this place.

Rude and Incompetent Staff

1 person thought this review was helpful

The main reason I will never come back to this place is because of the rude incompetent staff. Let me tell you about my last experience at Harborside...

I showed up and there was one convenient parking spot left, I drive an SUV and it was just easier to back into the spot. I reversed into the spot and was promptly approached by staff in front of the door telling me I am not allowed to park in reverse. They consider it the "get-away" position and I guess were profiling me thinking I might be there to rob them. Thanks for discriminating!

Next, once I change how I am parked. I hand them my ID and I even had a Harborside receipt/card from my last visit. I did not bring my recommendation because I had already been there and should have been already in the system. I thought it was funny that my receipt showed I just bought something there last week. However, because I was not in the system and no recommendation they could not serve me. It is not my fault your staff is overly stoned and failed when it came to creating me in the system.

Magnolia Wellness I have been going to instead. Better customer service so far, good selection of flowers, good daily specials...I would go to Magnolia Wellness if choosing to go to a dispensary in Oakland.
