I've learned a lot about customer service. I've also learned a lot about my own abilities. I find I've taken on a bit of extra responsibility, such as helping with catering orders, knowing about our products or specific procedures and standards, and making sure co-workers take their breaks on time or do their secondary tasks. Not necessarily management – more... jobs, but it gives me confidence that I would be able to take on a management role, either at Tim Hortons or elsewhere. I've also found that I'm a quick learner; I can remember a lot of our regular customers' orders. This improves the level of service we can give to our customers., and is generally a good skill to have.However, most days I feel like I don't get any recognition for what I bring to the workplace.
It can get very busy, and sometimes it can almost be overwhelming, but I've learned how to work through it, and also rely on my teammates to help each other out. – less
