Productive and Friendly
Baker (Current Employee), Mississauga, ONJanuary 22, 2016
Pros: Lenient Management
Cons: Peer Pressure
The branch I work at has always been busy, so production was never low. The management is lenient enough, and my co-workers are friendly and helpful. I enjoy interacting with my colleagues despite being at the back house for the most part. The hardest part of being a baker is being able to predict how much we need to bake for a certain time to avoid shortage or excess. Overall, my experience at Tim Hortons has helped a lot to enhance my other skills, such as customer service, and my communication skills.

An Excellent Student Job
FRONT COUNTER STAFF (Former Employee), Chatham, ONJanuary 21, 2016
Tim Hortons was the company that I worked for throughout my high school experience! My typically day at work was a 4-6 hour shift filled with many smiles and gracious guests. I built my interpersonal skills, learned hard work and time management while working in this fast paced environment! My management team was absolutely phenomenal; giving great hours, encouragement and always ready to present me with a new challenge or task! My coworkers always gave me a smile, a pat on the back and were always right there to assist me with anything; such as clearing a line, answering any questions and simply to help achieve a task at hand. The hardest part of the job for me was probably when faced with a customer who wasn't in the best mood, but I never let it get me down and I always tried to send them away with a smile if at all possible! The most enjoyable part of the job was there was always something new to learn or a new face to serve, the job simply never got boring and I was always eager to learn.

No motivation for staying
COUNTER STAFF (Former Employee), WindsorJanuary 20, 2016
Tim Horton's provides no motivation for long-term employees to continue working there. An employee who is essential to the regular functioning of the store and who has worked there for years is paid the same as someone who just walked in off the street,

Very Organized place to work
Baker/Storefront (Former Employee), Kemptville, ONJanuary 20, 2016
Pros: Guaranteed hours
Cons: Working consistent overnights was exhausting.
A typical day at work would consist of me going in, setting up trays with the products, keeping count of the amount of product needed, baking the product, and placing product in the proper place on the shelf. Also, I would handle orders for customers in the storefront, and deal with their payment transaction.
