belittling
Customer Service/ Manager (Current Employee), Hamilton, ONNovember 11, 2014
Pros: staff
Cons: everything!
some staff were amazing yet others had no job ethic. No point in moving up the ladder because you get treated worse! Owners are horrible and disrespectful. No problem belittling you! TDL has too many things going on all at once! If you want to come home stressed out on the verge of a mental break down than this is the job for you!

Tough and overbearing
Team Member (Former Employee), St. Catharines, ONNovember 10, 2014
My nights, as I worked Midnights, started out smooth and only downgraded from there.
I learned how to deal with a bunch of kinds of people, ranging from drunks to people who are high to complete jerks.
Management and my co-workers didn't seem to care much about my problems, like when I got sick enough to start throwing up, and they did nothing but offer – more... me a small break.
The hardest part of the job was managing cleaning, drive-thru and the counters all by myself until about 6AM every night/day and not getting a break for food.
The only part I enjoyed was the times it was quiet and the really slow nights, because I was able to get my cleaning done and was able to go home a bit earlier than normal. – less

Fun but fast paced
Cashier/runner (Former Employee), Moncton, New BrunswickNovember 9, 2014
Pros: discounts, friendly customers
Cons: short hours
Tim Horton's was a fun, but very fast paced work environment filled with many different types of employees. Unfortunately, many of the employees were affected in a negative way by the fast paced nature of the restaurant and that caused them to be grumpy and not very fun to work with. In other ways, though, the company was nice to work with. Many of – more... the customers were regulars and if it wasn't too busy they would stop by and chat while they drank their coffee, to me that was the best part. – less

Baker/Cashier (Former Employee), hamiton, onNovember 6, 2014
Pros: alright hours
Cons: night shift and being a baker that freezer can be cold when your in there for over an hour
a typical day was pretty much I would go in and get right to work. I didn't really work there long enough for it to be an different then that. I learned that tim hortons had more safety measures then the Golden Griddle did. I felt safer if there was ever to be a robbery. Management seemed a little bias to me. A lot of my co workers were really nice – more... and i loved working with the one girl and a few of the guys there they were really easy to talk to and get along with, but some were more rude and stuck up and made sure you knew who her mom was. The hardest part of the job was trying to work night shift. i got really sick and my body was messed up from the lack of sleep. the most enjoyable part of the job i would have to say would be working with the one girl. she always made it fun telling jokes laughing that type of thing. – less

Food Counter Attendant (Former Employee), Port Coquitlam, BCNovember 5, 2014
During my time as a Counter Staff Member at Tim Horton’s, I was able to enhance my skills in time management, problem solving, multi-tasking, customer service, and cash handling. I often worked in a team environment where I was able to use my ability to communicate effectively with co-workers and management. There were also days where I had the opportunity – more... to work independently, such as tasks, which included handling drive-thru and inventory checks. I received recognition, through a "Tim-points" incentive program, for my ability to handle tasks efficiently and productively. Although I enjoyed my time working at Tim Horton’s, there were stressful situations where I was faced with challenges that tested my abilities. For example, when a customer was not satisfied with their order during a time of rush, I took it upon myself to ensure that the customer left with happy and other customers were still served within a timely manner. My work experience at Tim Horton’s enabled me to experience day-to-day business activities with co-workers and management. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my time working and I gained valuable knowledge, which has been and will continue being useful in my future. I am willing to take responsibility; I manage my time well, I get things done on time, and I am also very organized. I am a second year undergraduate student at the University of Victoria. – less

Server (Former Employee), Peterborough, ONNovember 4, 2014
Pros: making people smile and making friends meanwhile.
Cons: time off was not given when asked
A typical day at work would depend if I was working at a large Tim Horton's or closing the Tim Horton's at the gas station. I learned how to manage a team in a fast paced work environment, how to do daily reports that were needed. Management was great except for minor problems. The co-workers were great, everyone got along with one another and would – more... do a lot of group activities outside of work. It was hard to get the orders out as quickly as I wanted with the equipment always being broken or having a problem with it. I enjoyed every part of the job, I met some great customers working there. I enjoy making people smile and getting things done right so it was a combination of both. – less
