Hard-working staff, apathetic and inconsiderate managerial team
Night Shift/Trainer (Former Employee) – Colborne, ON – 20 April 2017
The staff at Tim Horton's are hard-workers who are dedicated to fulfilling the requirements of their respective positions. However, supervisor and manager positions at this location were fixed, and the possibility of moving up was slim. The managers were extremely uneducated in dealing with conflict, and spoke down to new employees they did not favour.
There is no lunch-break for staff; rather, two breaks (either 15 or 20 minutes each, depending on the length of your shift) are provided during your shift. The break times are determined by the shift supervisor; however, the preferences of senior staff members will always be prioritized, thus fixing certain people's break-times. There are no free lunches, no benefits, and most locations do not allow staff members to accept tips (the location I served did allow for staff to collect tips, but this decision is determined by store owners).
Working here, you will learn how to work hard on your feet, how to follow instructions, and how to speak to your superiors and to customers. You will not be respected for your work by the general public, but the connections you establish with your coworkers will be unique and fulfilling.
