Team Member (Current Employee) – Welland, ON – 20 October 2016
this job always required working as a team and sometimes on your own in an induvidual setting and both were suitable for me anad i enjoyed both positions. However i always had to be on my feet and ready for a rush of customers at peak times of the day.
my team mates
unruly customers, but its kay knowing how to deal with them
Well-known company but should have programs that give benefits and security to employees. They should give proper training to new worker so she familiarize with the restaurant set-up,give new uniforms not those used by previous employees and provide safety shoes. They just should $23 of the cost of the shoes.
Cashier/Barista (Former Employee) – Dawson Creek, BC – 11 October 2016
Worked at cash registers mostly processing orders, brewing coffee on the side. Learned cleaning techniques how to use different equipment. Management was okay, but seemed difficult to impress. Co-workers were nice and fun to work with. Hardest part of job is trying to go fast while not getting burned by coffee or tea water. Funnest wes trying different donuts on break and meeting with co-workers.
free donuts and coffee for break
confusing supervisors telling me to do different things
Cashier and Sandwich maker (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 11 October 2016
Working as a cashier at the front and getting food items finished if needed was fun to do. My job was to supervisor and teach new stuff for a few months. While working overnight shift I was responsible for serving costumer, food preparation, feeling the shelves, cleaning the store etc. I learned to do cashier work as I did not do that before and to manage different tasks during my overnight shift. Our management was great and co-workers were our friends. I enjoyed interacting with public especially overnight as they were coming every night for our shakes, coffee, food.and conversation.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 11 October 2016
I was given a week of sick leave the week before my vacation and they cut my hours. Also During the interview I advised them that I needed a schedule during the bus times, however they gave me shifts that I had to pay $15 for a cab.
Front Counter (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 11 October 2016
The coworkers are nice like family but the management and owners over work you and rip you off. I worked there for 6months got no benefit even thou I was supposed to get them at 3 months and then was let go for no reason. And when they say they can offer you flexible schedule they lie. I would never work at Tim Horton's again.
Productivity is a must, a fun place to work if you like the serving coffee.
Store Front Worker/Server (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 10 October 2016
A very busy place to work at so that makes the day seems shorter. They offer good benefits, and very flexible with the hours. Lots of perks for the employee such as discount on merchandise, beverages, and meals.
Team Member (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 10 October 2016
exactly like i said in the summary it was easy and with the right people fun. Yet it could also be incredibly stressful due to being understaffed. I was also going though high school at the time and there wasn't really any respect towards that.
Storefront Team Member (Former Employee) – Fort Erie, ON – 10 October 2016
Working at Tim Hortons was a great experience for me, it taught me lots of cleaning, and time managing skills that I can use today. the people and management were great to work with and overall it was a great first job.
Front End Cashier (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 10 October 2016
Being my first real job, it was one I will always cherish. The people were amazing and the staff was very welcoming and friendly. I learned how to use the touch screen POV register, how to build sandwiches, how to answer the phone professionally and maintain a neat work space. The hardest part of the job was maintaining window times with uncooperative staff members but at the end of the day I knew that I, myself tried my hardest. The most enjoyable part of the job would be getting to see, associate and establish a relationship with returning customers.
Non-specialty donuts and Hot beverages (tea and coffee) were free
Learning experience thanks to leadership position in early work years
Storefront Supervisor and Crew leader (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 9 October 2016
Unique customer service experience thanks to the nature and demand of working as a supervisor at a coffee store. Management and co-workers were always compliant, supportive and eager to go above and beyond not only for customers but for co-workers as well.
Productive workplace focused on achieving sales goals and work efficient
TEAM MEMBER (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 8 October 2016
although Tim Hortons is a good place to learn how to push sales, encourage service efficiency, hospitality, and rotations of product, etc. the management of the Tim Hortons i was at is still poor and because of that both customers and employees are unhappy when at the establishment.
good learning experiences, hours per week, flexible scheduling
Poor management, dictatorship like establishment, manipulative environment
Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 8 October 2016
