Good first job, lots to learn
Storefront/Baker (Current Employee) – Moncton, NB – 23 April 2017
As far as first jobs go, Tim Hortons is a great place to start. My first 2-3 weeks were pretty rough and I really wanted to quit, but once you get through those first few weeks and get comfortable with the job, you're set. It will be my fourth summer working there this June and I have met some of my closest friends there.
It's a fast paced environment and time usually goes by pretty quick as there are always things to do. I have learned super good customer service and cash management skills as well as leadership skills. Once you work there awhile, regular customers even start to become your friends and you'll look forward to seeing their familiar faces.
Management really depends, I have seen 5 managers in my 3 years at Tim's and only two of them have been good, however, working with people who are hard to deal with is something you'll have to learn to do at any job, whether it be a fast-food job or anything else, so its better to learn sooner rather than later!
I enjoy the fast paced environment and working with some really great people and growing relationships with customers and the overall work experience. The job is really what you make of it!
The hardest part is probably when you're short staffed and it gets busy, but if you have a good team you can get through the day no problem!
