Working with employees and servicing customers who feel like family
Team Member (Current Employee), Toronto, ONJanuary 28, 2015
Working for Tim Hortons has taught me a great deal about what customer service is and what it is to deal with customers in a timely and friendly manner. Team members feel a sense of family working at Tim Hortons. The hardest part would be leaving my job and close friendships I have come to make, but I am ready for different and new experiences.

Counter Staff (Former Employee), Fredericton, NBJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: busy, stay alert, and the friendships and skills i obtained along the way.
Cons: long hours, clean up, and stock up
Working at Tim Horton's always kept me busy, and helped me become more independent, and made me realize how one small gesture can make such a difference in a persons day.
The hardest part of the job was stocking and cleaning at the end of every night.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working in a fast pace environment that kept you alert and on your feet at all times.
My co-workers were all great people to work with and it made it easy to enjoy my job.

This is a fast paced environment which I excelled at. I enjoyed the work and the people. I learned patience and how to work beside different personalities. Tim Hortons is a fabulous company to work for as they have many extras that you qualify for such as school grants and events. I was lucky to represent Tim Hortons at the world curling in Victoria BC

Fast Paced but Enjoyable Nonetheless
Employee/Cashier (Former Employee), Richmond HillJanuary 25, 2015
Pros: free drinks at the end of a shift!
Cons: fast pace can be stressful!
A typical day at Tim Horton's was, get in uniform, punch in, and check the board for the work duty you would perform for the day. It could be anything from drive thru coffee maker, to front cashier, to bagel bar (making sandwiches and bagels), and your side duty would be either clean the washrooms, mop the floors, restock the fridges and dried goods or runner (get the side parts of orders such as a ten pack of Tim bits or a chocolate milk from the fridge). You had to be quick about everything, from the way you spoke and filled an order to cleaning and taking orders from customers to maintaining overall good customer service.

I learned how to complete orders to the best of my ability with haste. I learned how to prepare various types of sandwiches and beverages as well as how to restock them when the materials used to make them ran low. I also learned how to provide excellent customer service by tone of voice, pace and body language (smiling).

Management was tough and professional. My managers were all strict when it came to rules and regulations and motivational when it came to being quick. They all expressed a concern with customer service and fast service.

My co-workers were mostly pleasant and easy to work with and together as a team. Each one of them had something valuable to bring to the workplace.

The hardest part of the job is obvious, the fast pace. It was stressful at first to keep up with everybody else who were already well adjusted to the pace of the work. It was difficult to always meet the expectations of the managers, they had very high expectations and no – more... one was exempt from them.

Drive thru coffee is by far the fastest place to be stationed and my favourite because time passes so quickly when you work there during the "rush" hours and times of the day. The other enjoyable portion of the work was the relationships I made and had working at Tim Horton's. The workers were pleasant and positive whenever I was down or stressed one of them would always find the right thing to say to cheer me back up! Overall an excellent experience in a fast paced food-chain workplace. – less

A place to gain lots of experience in this field of work and to learn new things
Cashier/Team Member (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONJanuary 23, 2015
I had a very pleasant time while working at Tim Horton's. I was able to learn about health and safety regulations as well as how to properly handle food and how to sanitize my work station. This is the first time that I was able to learn these things so I am very thankful for that. I also learned how to work properly and efficiently in a fast-paced environment. This job helped me to learn how to not get stressed when I am overwhelmed, and I have figured out how to deal with customers who are happy, sad, angry, etc.

It was very short but it taught me very important basics of any job e.g. time management, customer importance, job ethics.
Guest service representative (Former Employee), Toronto, OnJanuary 23, 2015
Pros: free coffee
Cons: unexpected shift hours
On job hours it was full of duties and work which continuously engaged me towards work and it also gave me fluency with my duties.
I learned how to treat different types of customers in different ways.
e.g. detailed customers get served with details, frustrated customer can be served with apology and rewards.
Management was very well balanced and unbiased which was the best part i liked about it.
I used to work with different co-workers from different culture but there was one common thing about them and it was helping nature in every situation which gave me enough time and easy space to grow in an organization.
The hardest part of the job was to learn how to make sandwich keeping in mind the quality standard and time. initially I was fighting with that but with the help of seniors and my supervisor I learned it.
Most enjoyable part of the job was the time I spent of the floor because every co-worker working there were so easygoing and helpful that it made my time easy and full of useful learning.
