Great learning experience as a supervisor
Supervisor (Current Employee), 733 Kipling Ave. Toronto. ONAugust 20, 2014
became supervisor fairly quickly after being hired.
the employees are all great to work with, and the manager is nice, the owner is alright not always the nicest.
on a typical day as a supervisor i would serve customers, bake donuts, count the tills, and direct employees in the right learning direction.

Productive workplace that emphasizes cleanliness
Cashier/Baker (Current Employee), London, ONAugust 20, 2014
A typical day at work goes by quickly. It is a fast-paced environment where you communicate with regular customers and a lot of strange faces. It is taking customer orders and fulfilling them as quickly as possible and to the satisfaction of the customer.
What I learned is that communication is key. If something is not understood, as a cashier you must – more... ask questions in order to maintain the 100% order accuracy level. Communication makes your life and that of the customers much easier.
Managment is on top of everything but can have high expectations although working with co-workers makes up for it.
The hardest part of the job would be keeping product stocked when rushes come through. The most enjoyable part would be working with great people. – less

learning experiences at Tim Hortons
Storefront/Drive-Thru Employee (Former Employee), Mitchell, ONAugust 20, 2014
Pros: making people pleased with their service.
Cons: the uniform, dealing with unhappy customers
I found that working at Tim Hortons they are really involved with their employees. I enjoyed working there a lot and I learned a lot about health and safety, customer service, and working together as a team to make the day go smoother and more efficient. I felt that the management needed some one better qualified when I was an employee there but it – more... wasn't terrible. I felt that the hardest part of the job was pleasing everybody, some customers just cant be pleased no matter what you do in the situation to make it better. What I enjoyed about working at Tim Hortons the most was the people I worked with and accomplishing a hard task for ex ( beating drive thru time and working like a well oiled machine. – less

Only cared about speed of service not quality
Server/Cashier (Former Employee), Pickering, ONAugust 19, 2014
Pros: sometimes free breakfast
Cons: treated badly, long hours
Early in the morning I would get to work and serve coffee. The pressure to constantly perform quickly was always there. I learned that not all companies care about their employees. They would work me for 10 hours at a time with only one 30 minute break. The co-workers were the best part. They were always happy and friendly despite the work environment. – more... In the winter two of us would have to stand on the window, in the -20 weather, for almost an entire 5 hour shift with zero rotation. Management was unreasonable and barely present. The best part of it was sometimes we got a free breakfast. I enjoyed getting to know some regular customers. – less

Productive work day but short hours
Works as a team leader (Current Employee), winnipeg, manitobaAugust 19, 2014
Pros: free food breaks (coffee, donuts)
Cons: short hours
A day at Tim Hortons is a quiet busy especially in morning.
I have learned to handle and deal with customers especially in necessary situations
The management is not so good in terms of handing their staffs through setting work schedules.
The rough part in working at Tim Hortons is that after you work so hard and it is not busy hours anymore, they will – more... send you home without completing your daily work hour
I find comfortable working at Tim Hortons because of my co workers – less

Meh
Counter Attendant, Baker, Bookkeeper (Former Employee), CanadaAugust 19, 2014
After working at Tim's I do not recommend it to others. After working there for 6 years during school, I found out that others were making much more than me even though I had more responsibilities. A lot of favoritism occurs within this company.

Tim Hortons
Team Member (Former Employee), Cambridge, ONAugust 17, 2014
Pros: free hot drinks
Cons: not flexible with shift changes or holidays
My experience at Tim Hortons was overall very good and successful. I enjoyed everyone i worked with and all the friendships i made. A typical day working at Tim Hortons would be busy, a lot of cleaning, prepping food,making coffee and making sure all our guests are satisfied with their experience at Tim Hortons. I learned how to be responsible and organized, – more... and people skills. The hardest part of the job would be constantly being on your feet and running around for 8-10 hours. Although the job was difficult at times, the most enjoyable part was making guests happy with their experience and making bonds with my co-workers. – less

Excellent learning experience with customers
Store Front (Former Employee), Etobicoke, ONAugust 16, 2014
Pros: great staff
Cons: lack of communcation with the managers
I would be working the nightshift and I would clean the whole restaurant as well as serving customers. I have learned to be patient with customers and different ways to deal with them. There will times when a customer is very frustrated. I feel that it is important to give them 110% to there satisfaction. The management does slack on communication but – more... otherwise they will work around your busy hours. The co-workers are excellent. I have ups and downs with some co-workers but I will always treat them as if they were family. We all work as a team and will be treated with respect no matter what happens. The hardest part of the job was that I didnt feel very safe working at night time from the experience that I have witnessed. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people everyday knowing that I have made them very happy to start there morning routine. I enjoy talking to customers and I make sure that I give them everything they ordered with an extra smile on the side. – less

fast-paced work environment
Cashier (Current Employee), Lively, ONAugust 15, 2014
The first few hours of work would go by very quick because there are a lot of customers and it kept me busy and focused. As the shift goes on, less people start coming so the last few hours goes by very slow and seems to drag on. My co-workers are fun to work with and they help the shift go by fast. The management can be nice, but they are very unorganized – more... and like to pick favorites so it is very stressful and irritating. The hardest part of the job would be trying to make sure I get the same schedule. I talked to the management and they agreed to it, and told me that they would let me know in advance if there needed to be any changes and so far, they have not given me any notice but keep changing my schedule. The most enjoyable part of the job, is seeing people I know come in, as well as getting to see my co-workers. – less
