Hard as well as enjoyable job
CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee), Toronto downtownAugust 26, 2015
Pros: free lunch and employee discounts
Cons: less hours
I learned many things like time management and culture management from that job. All the employees were from different nations. Morning time was the hardest part of the job because you have to give fast and accurate service to the customer in less time. Sometimes, we celebrated some special days that was most enjoyable part of the job.

Managers are intimidating at first. I've noticed everyone here is a bit older than usual. Most retired people work at my location, a few young people.

Store Front Employee (Former Employee), Whitby, ONAugust 23, 2015
Pros: Discounts on Tim Hortons items
Cons: Chaos
I have learned that Tim Hortons is a major Canadian enterprise that has many customers, and the workday is very busy and fast paced. With the right co-workers, it can be very enjoyable and there is never – more... a time where you are bored while working.

The hardest part of the job would be the chaos of customers, and all the orders. As long as you can keep up, it gets easier to deal with. Definitely cannot crack under the pressure.

The most enjoyable part of working at Tim Hortons was that you are literally part of a major franchise. You are a team member, and the co-workers are feeling very similar to you, so it isn't like you are alone when you are feeling overwhelmed. – less

A hometown business
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), London, ONAugust 22, 2015
This hometown business is known for being in all the small towns and cities across the nation. There are numerous reasons why working for Tim Horton's could benefit you.

For those who excel rapidly – more... like myself, they are numerous opportunities such as advancement and increases to your salary.

You learn numerous skills that you can take into the real world such as customer service, people skills, cash handling, cleaning and you get all this knowledge about the business that you learn to understand why it's brand is so well known.

Manager's are there to aid you, sometimes to be your mentors and other times to listen when you have no one else. Your manager will be there to put you back on the right path at work so that you can be the best employee with the best set of skills to offer.

Your coworkers become a little family to you. You learn all about them like any other business but get to actually build friendships and really get to know each other working in such a small area. – less
