Manager (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 6 January 2014
It is a very challenging workplace, start your day early and ends late, full of surprises, I have encountered so many things good and bad that helps me become stronger and help improves me as a person.
Team Member (Former Employee) – Beamsville, ON – 26 March 2017
Working here was great for a summer job because it's very flexible and really works with a busy schedule. The job teaches many things such as customer service and people skills as well as food care and prep and proper cleaning procedures.
Team Member (Former Employee) – Oakville, ON – 26 March 2017
A pretty regimented job punch in and tend to your station. The managers I experienced were lovely and very accommodating. Between the team members there is a good social structure that makes the job fun.
Pressured job, not a fun place to work, but it was a job and I did it well
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Trenton, ON – 26 March 2017
I learned to work in a very fast paced environment, dealing with complaints awhile staying professional was a task at times. But I deal with people very well so I was a good fit for the job. I ran a staff/shift of between 2-12 people at any given time.
Was able to deal with the public, and often stressful situations tended to pass quickly
You were just tiny part of a large mechine there. No one wanted advise or new ideas. Clock in, work, clock out robots. Thats all they wanted there
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 26 March 2017
I personally did not like working at Tim Hortons since I am a student and have to balance out work and school. I wasn't allowed to take many days off - there was a limit - so I had to work around that. Also, this Tim Hortons made us pay for any food we took from them with only a 10% discount. Of course, I'm sure that the meal time and the amount of break time you get depends on the owner of the franchise.
Team Member/Cashier (Current Employee) – Niverville, MB – 24 March 2017
Super busy work environment that allows you to become a master multi-tasker. A typical day includes the repetitive customer service basics including coffee production, food preparation, and opening/closing duties. The culture is very diverse. The hardest part of the job is being on your feet for 8 hours and constantly running around. Most enjoyable aspect would be the free coffee and donuts.
Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) – North Queen and Cloverdale Mall – 24 March 2017
Working at Timmy's will always be a memorable experience for me. Coming here in Canada as an immigrant it was not easy to land a job as you are always asked for Canadian experience. I am grateful for Tim Hortons for giving me the experience and boost that I needed to jumpstart my career.
ok job when you're young
pay is minimum and yearly increases are also minimal
Tim Hortons Team Member (Current Employee) – Nova Scotia – 23 March 2017
Management is okay. Owners do not care. There's no such thing as raises. You get paid minimum wage for an alright job but it pays most of the bills. In the economy we are in now most are lucky to even have a job. I would never recommend anyone to work here.
Shift Supervisor/Trainer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 23 March 2017
Work experience depends on management;
With the right managers your work days will be awesome.
Can get super tiresome as you're constantly on your feet and waking the floor with service and re-stocking as they get depleted but with the right co-workers, you don't feel a thing or easily forget the pain as you chat with them.
Team Member/Cashier (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 23 March 2017
It's most certainly an enjoyable place to work in a positive fast-paced atmosphere. I have no regrets from working there only that I'm not fit for it. If you're someone who absolutely loves face-to-face interaction constantly for hours whilst making hot drinks, or if you want a secure position with guaranteed hours Timmies is great. However if you are someone who prefers a calmer environment with a set list of clear instructions on tasks and a steadier pace look elsewhere.
Free Coffee, Tea. Interactions with some.
Effort goes unnoticed, one members constant mistake fall upon all else.
Cashier and Customer Service (Former Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 23 March 2017
typical day always included greeting the regulars and having their coffee ready for when they arrived. I learned how to communicate better the hardest part of the job is making sure your drive through times are always correct. best part of that job was working with people I considered family!
Supervisor and Cashier (Current Employee) – Ottawa East, ON – 22 March 2017
Although it was busy, if you are working with a wonderful team time goes by quickly. It is enjoyable if you are up for a challenge. The only con is the fact that you would have to stand for long periods of time.
Team Member (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 22 March 2017
A typical day at work, come in on time and clock in. I was able to learn on the floor first for my first shift ever, they teach you to make coffee, cold drinks, espresso's etc. Management could be a bit slack if you ask me, at least at the location I worked at. Workplace is very diverse, but sometimes people could be rude as well. Hardest part of my job was the environment, the tims I worked at was fairly small and it had both drive thru and the storefront it was very difficult to make moves around.
