Fast paced enviroment with immense sales in the mornings and fair sales in the afternoon
Team Member (Current Employee), Toronto, ONJuly 22, 2014
Pros: loyalty, respect.
Cons: two free things only on break, the rest is free. no raise, weak recognition for others and their strenghts.
A typical day at work is handling cash from small to big orders, some complicated and others with wrong orders or unexpected tasting of drinks, make it right/coffee promise. I've learned the most about myself and my skills in the work place, i've learned how to manage shifts, to depict what needs to be done before a co-worker is finished. Co-workers – more... tend to work but not always fully 100%, some may work very hard but may not realize that the hard work isn't fully going the right way. The hardest part of the job is working the flexible hours and handling big, long lasting line ups, especially when customers are in a rush. The most enjoyable is satsification from customers that wanted exactly what you gave them and of course regular customers – less

Trained baker and Team Leader (Current Employee), Guelph, ONJuly 21, 2014
Pros: great team workers and job security
Cons: management and poor organization
Tim Hortons is a good place to work. I started out in this job as a Team Member and have been promoted to Team Leader. The people I work with are great fun and are also diligent workers. The customers keep you smiling as you do with them. I have learnt to organize and be both dependant and a team player. This job is a great start to my life and I am – more... prepared thanks to the lessons I have learnt, to move on and develop my skills. – less

Working at Tim Hortons was always fun. The customers were always entertaining and understanding. Whenever there was an issue there was always an easy solution. Customers loved talking to me while waiting for their coffee or sandwiches. Loved the free food on breaks and 30% off.

Full Time Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Sittsville,ONJuly 19, 2014
Pros: the customer satisfactor
Cons: the overwhelming feeling when busy
I work in a fast pace and laid back environment. A typical day at work would include being organized friendly, able to think fast and move quickly. I learn everyday that it is important to satisfy every customers needs and to do your best at what you are doing in your job. Management are there to lead and protect there employees. the co-workers are – more... there to help each other out with tasks and to play there part in a team. The hardest part of the job is having so much to do to keep yourself organized to make sure everything runs smoothly. the most enjoyable part of the job is getting to talk and spend time with different types of people. – less

storefront/baker (Current Employee), cobourg, ONJuly 16, 2014
Pros: paid breaks
Cons: my summary
I have been working at Tim Hortons for 4 years in august. i have only once got a raise which was 5 cents. I have never been in trouble there, yet you get treated like garbage. Management is terrible. for a 9 hour shift you only get 2 20 minute breaks. Cant wait to find a new job so i can put in my 2 weeks :):)

Entry level job with good coworkers
Hostess/Server (Former Employee), Whitby, ONJuly 16, 2014
Pros: employee discount
Cons: inability to work with your schedule
The day is very fast paced, and is physically demanding. I learned a lot of multi-tasking skills at this job, which I apply to everything in my life. I am able to deal with some rather unpleasent people and situations gracefully as well thanks to Tim Hortons. My management was also quite understanding with any issues brought to them. The hardest part – more... of working at Tim Hortons, was their inability to work around your schedule. The best part of the job, was definitely the people. – less

stressful workplace
crew member (Former Employee), Mallorytown, ONJuly 16, 2014
Pros: friendly co-workers
Cons: stressful environment
Tim Hortons is fantastic if your on the ordering side of the counter but behind the counter is a different story. its a fast paced environment with no room for error, screw up one thing and youll feel the wrath of the customer who ordered it. Im sure most Tim Hortons are nice to work at but I worked at one in a 401 on route. this meant I had to drive – more... the 401 everyday to work and most of the time through harsh winter conditions. the staff were friendly and would explain all the things that needed to be explained to me but the management was constantly changing and I felt that they were extremely unorganized. The management forgot my name on multiple occasions and hardly ever booked me shifts. I ultimately had to quit due to transportation issues I no longer have as I have bought my own vehicle. – less

High-speed environment, productive, geared towards customer satisfaction
Storefront Operator (Former Employee), Newmarket, ONJuly 15, 2014
Cons: inconsistency in hours given, management
Though the mornings in this establishment were quite heavy, it did make the day go by faster. I dominantly spent most of my hours working the sandwich bar keeping up with the requirements of service. My co-workers were always a joy, however management seemed to lack in efficiency at times. I found that at my particular location, my manager seemed to – more... put down or make inappropriate/rude comments towards many individuals, staff and customers included. That aside, the most enjoyable part of the job would have been working with individuals that were around my age group that had positive attitudes. Any conflicts could be resolved quickly noting the importance of customers. We were all able to provide each other with assistance when necessary and execute great customer service working with great synergy. Ultimately, our team was able to satisfy customers quickly and efficiently.

I was able to learn great customer service skills, quickly dissolve problems, help out others, handle cash and tills quickly and effectively, and take and process orders with little to no flaws. – less
