I have leaned that you have to be able to work fast paced working in the Tim Hortons industry, especially if you are working in drive thru. You have to be able work well not only in a team but independently as well. There are times where you will have to work by yourself. For example, I was working in a kiosk location where at times I would have to run drive thru and front by myself for certain periods of time. My co-workers were great to work with and always willing to help out when help was needed. I enjoyed working with the public and getting to know some of the locals in the area. Though working by myself or sort staff was stressful at times when it was busy, it helped build my independency and confidence. Lastly, the hardest part of the job was working on deli. It was enjoyable at times, but once again when it became overall busy it was hard to keep up with orders from both drive thru and front.
Team work and building independence
