TRAINER (Former Employee), Brantford, ON – December 15, 2014
A typical day at work would be ensuring drive-thru was running efficiently, working in different positions to process orders quickly and accurately. I worked for the company for 16 years and really developed a family there, however there came a time for something new.
Store Front (Former Employee), London, ON – December 15, 2014
I learned so much about my self and the work force during my time at Tim Hortons. I learned that I am incredibly comfortable in a fast pace environment and that I have excellent customer service skills. I had an amazing manager who understood that, at that time, I was a high school student and I was balancing honor roll marks with a part time job.
Reliable student job with good hours, comfortable work environment
Store Front (Current Employee), Whitby, ON – December 15, 2014
Pros: comfortable atmosphere
Cons: long hours, busy
Management and my co-workers are the primary reason that I enjoy working at Tim Hortons. They understood my situation as a student with a busy school schedule, and offered me hours that were consistent and fit in to my schedule. The most difficult part about working at Tim Hortons is the long hours and the frequent "rushes'' which require you to move – more... very quickly. However, working here has helped me develop better customer-service skills that will benefit me in my future careers. – less
Production and Storefront Team Member (Former Employee), Lucan, ON – December 12, 2014
Being a team member at Tim Hortons has helped me develop many skills that can be transferred to other work places. It taught me how to work efficiently with others in a fast manner while maintaining order accuracy and quality service.
Storefront (Former Employee), Regina, SK – December 11, 2014
Pros: coffee and donuts are free to staff and 10% off on meal while working
Cons: short staff
Meet and greet customers and having good and funny conversations. Also helping out other team members who need help with either a product finding or explaining the policies of the company or resolving their issues towards the team members or the company, and sometimes being the only member of my section with good remarks from the store manager. Also – more... having a fun environment with team members. – less
Cashier/ Drive-thru (Former Employee), South Porcupine, Ontario – December 11, 2014
Tim Horton's taught me to interacting with costumers and always be on task. A typical day at Tim Horton's consisted of taking orders, cleaning out the machines, cleaning the store front, and stocking everything. I only worked at Tim Horton's for a few months but within those months I grew to like the work that I did. It also taught me how to manage – more... my time and not get stressed in certain situations. Sometimes it would get really busy and you start to get nervous but if you just do your job and make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible you get use to it and it's not as bad as you think it is. All in all I had a great experience working at Tim Horton's. – less
Customer service (Current Employee), Niagara Falls – December 10, 2014
Pros: free lunches, friendly staff, tips
Cons: income not reliable, dangerous work environment
Tim Hortons is a good employer if you want to get your foot in the door in the work world but if you're trying to support a family or pay multiple bills it isn't for you. The co-workers are very friendly and will help you out if needed. The job is good for learning how to multitask and work at a fast pace
baker (Former Employee), Morden, MB – December 10, 2014
Pros: i can eat good food
Cons: short breaks
i would get my coffee then i would go up front and check how the display looks like so if there would be any donuts or muffins or bagels missing i would write down how much i have to bake then i would go to the back and bake them and after bring them upfront \ and sell them so i would have to use the till as well
Cashier/Runner (Former Employee), King City, ON – December 9, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Working here was not bad. Extremely busy location because it's on the highway. During summer the lines are huge and never end. A great team to work with. Kind of hard to understand co-workers sometimes due to language barriers.
Team Member (Former Employee), Orangeville, ON – December 9, 2014
Most of the staff at the location I worked at were clearly just working their till they went home, no one wanted to be their and everyone hated their job. I excel in workplaces where the staff is happy to be doing what they are doing, and here, they weren't.
Baker (Current Employee), Toronto, ON – December 9, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: lack of team work and very small work place
-lack of hours, no team work, low pay, management hires personal friends - Monday to Friday day schedule - best part -very small work space and the lack of consideration from fellow employees when trying to complete your work -lack of materials to do your job properly
Counter Attendant (Current Employee), Lively, ON – December 8, 2014
Pros: great staff, friendly work environment.
Cons: late hours, location.
I learnt how to quickly problem solve, and how to quickly and efficiently serve customers and provide them with a satisfactory experience.
The hardest part of the job is the late shifts, being at work until 10:30-11:00pm on a week night makes it hard to keep a balance between family and work life.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the regular – more... customers that you get to know, and look forward to seeing every day. I also enjoyed working with the staff, and being involved with the fundraisers that happen every year. – less
Crew Leader, Baker (Former Employee), Carlisle, ON – December 5, 2014
Very flexible shifts and everyone is usually very polite, although gossip gets around quick, but generally that happens anywhere you work. Probably the best owners I have ever worked for and would recommend this location to anyone.
