Employee (Former Employee) – Innisfil, ON – 27 April 2017
This place is an absolute nightmare. You get launched into the position without any training and are expected to be perfect. The upper management clique is absolutely impossible to deal with, you're asked to break standards every single day, and there is no communication. Operations managers are so two faced and fake, and play favourites. You only get a half an hour break, but are expected to punch out for it before you can even leave your work center. By the time you get out and get something to eat, you usually have about 5 minutes left. The place is disorganized chaos, and absolutely toxic.
Terrible upper management, intimidation from bosses, lack of training
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Innisfil, ON – 22 April 2017
Everyday is different working here, you really never know what you are walking into. There are so many levels of management and so many things going on all the time its hard to keep track. one of the biggest down falls of here is trying to balance your life at work and at home. management was ok, except the lack of communication from upper management to the assistants. the hardest part of the job was trying to balance management duties and crew member duties at the same time. the customer volume as well for the labor that was aloud was not coinciding. the best part of the job was all the people that i worked with.

This place if awful if you're looking for a job. They have no diversity among the staff whatsoever. Almost all (out of the 6 people) were white females. They have practically no employees and is just an overall terrible place. Wouldn't recommend it. Wish I could rate it less than one star. Not working there because this place is absolute trash.
Not a family oriented workplace. Company doesn't care about their employees or managers.
Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 21 March 2017
Company doesn't care about you or your respinsibilities with your family. They only care about what they need from you. Performance is not based on your skills but the amount of time ( long hours) you are willing to work for them. No fixed days off and schedule really sucks. They think once you're employed by them, they own you and can just play around with your time. Maybe this job is only for single people and with no commitments.
Tim Hortons Team Member (Former Employee) – Innisfil, ON – 19 March 2017
Got hired on the spot and was very eager getting into the job, I ended up leaving within a year. Managment threatens employees and doesn't treat them with any respect, supervisors stand around and watch as you work and doesn't get all team members doing equal work. Bottom line is I never wanted to get back into fast food service after this. Good, easy work but not when the management is so terribly poor. Would not recommend this to anyone, a small paycheck isn't worth the stress!
Tim Hortons Team Member (Former Employee) – Innisfil, ON – 18 March 2017
Save your sanity and never ever ever work at this tim hortons. This particular tim hortons definitely avoid. This place is run by "people" who think you are literally nothing. Way too understaffed and the management is an absolute joke. I wouldn't recommend this particular tim hortons to my worst enemy
didnt get paid from these guys, but yet they sent a t4
Fast Food Worker (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 7 March 2017
I didn't like the head boss nor did I like how we got yelled at constantly. I didn't receive any pay from these guys and have bank records to back up my claim. They hire the most laziest teenagers around that sit on crates and do nothing.
Super demanding workplace compared to similar paying jobs
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Odessa, ON – 6 February 2017
If you want to work, there are more hours than you can handle, but everyone gets sick of their phone ringing off the hook multiple times per day. Show up for a scheduled shift to find out you're alone because everyone else called in and nobody else would take the shift. Silently disciplined for wanting more hours by having hours cut if you don't accept call ins. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU DO NOT LET YOUR CHILDREN WORK THERE!. No respect for family events. Discipline for not showing up for shifts that were scheduled outside of your availability. Some students were even scheduled during school hours because management was soo disorganized. Cut throat environment. Favoritism in full force. Upper management does not even support lower management, let alone staff. Staff are a dime a dozen, and treated like that. Schedules are supposed to be done 3 weeks in advance, yet sometimes I had to call to see when my next shift was bease it was Tuesday and Friday's schedule was not up yet. Then when it does get posted it gets changed multiple times in one week.
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Newtonville, ON – 31 January 2017
This place is ridiculous. The manager team is just a bunch of bullies and the supervisory team is a joke. There is so much bullying of lower staff and discrimination that happens at this establishment. I was discriminated here in particular by a supervisor because i am a native woman. Myself and many other employees have tried to contact HR about these issues and are constantly ignored. I would never recommend anyone work here ever. DO NOT DO IT.
Management, supervisory team, and pretty much everything else
Team Member (Former Employee) – Newcastle ontario – 25 January 2017
Management had absolutely no knowledge on how to talk to employees or customers. You will get your schedule 3 weeks in advance but they are constantly changing or cutting hours so what's the point? They cannot keep staff so we were severely under staffed for every shift. You can not run a 24/7 operation with 17 employees. It got so bad that you were cross trained among 3 brands just to get hours. How are there no full time hours with no staff in the building? People would be in for their second shift and just leave on break never to be seen again. This place is a joke and lose good employees. Keep the bad ones because they're desperate. So many corners cut. The brands would be appaled by the lack of cleanliness standards. The health department was constantly called in. No idea how they passed. Temperature logs were just written in and not actually tested.
Starbucks Barista (Current Employee) – Innisfil, ON – 5 January 2017
Typical day at work is good I have learned many communication skills management is poor co workers are great the hardest part of the job, short staff the most enjoyable part of the job is communicating with customers
Warehouse Clerk (Current Employee) – Toronto Pearson International Airport, ON – 25 December 2016
Typical day at work could be very challenging but with teamwork we get through it. I have learned that showing initiative at work could bring opportunities for the future. Management is well organized and always there to look after when you seeking help. The co-workers play a big role everyday in my job and without them a task can be difficult to do. The physical work is the hardest part of the job but the most enjoyable part is when we finish work early.
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 16 December 2016
Save your sanity and avoid this place. The management is garbage. They talk to you like you're stupid and belittle you. They have no people skills, and they find it extremely difficult to make one task run smooth. Don't expect to have a social life working here. Especially in the summer. 9-10 hr shifts is the norm. And they don't really care if you miss a break.
Employee (Former Employee) – Ontario – 16 December 2016
the management was garbage, didnt give me my time and a half pay for working all thanksgiving weekend, they charged me 30$ every two weeks for the shuttle when it says its free in the advertisements, constantly berated and yelled a for calling in sick, constantly running the store or 3 hours at a time by myself with no help pulled double shifts all the time, labor board did barely anything when they were called.. the co workers were great but dont bother working there its garbage.
