Tim Hortons is a naturally high paced job that brings forth a variety of customers and cultures. I learned so much from Tim Hortons: how to multitask, have patience, how to act as a team member & ask for clarification, as well as how to remain professional in high stress times.
Our management team was, for the most part, very professional and mature to customers and employees.
My co-workers were very customer-oriented and very good team players. I was able to confide and work efficiently alongside them.
I found that the most difficult part of the job was when an order was missed or confused with another (language barrier or indecision common issue) but was able to be quickly and efficiently corrected within an admirable timeframe.
My favorite part of the job at Tim Hortons was when I was an expediter for Drive Thru. I would hear an order being placed over my headset, I would get the product(s), anything from doughnuts/muffins/cookies, to cold beverages like ice coffee or water and bring it to Drive Thru and place it in its proper area with the remainder of the order. I would also restock any and all Drive Thru items like cream, milk & sugar.
If I was needed anywhere else in the store for another quick job, I would ensure that my [coffee] maker had enough coffee brewing and was well stocked before my temporary departure.
