Cashier (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – August 27, 2016
A typical day at work was fast paced and fun. I learned how to handle food properly and be very organized. management was nice and understanding. My co-workers where nice and made my day go a lot smoother because of our teamwork. The hardest part of the job was working the night shift. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with my co-workers.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – August 7, 2016
Weekdays are very busy but I have learned a lot in this industry. I learned how to understand people's opinion. I learned how to move fast and multi-task. My co-workers are really fun to be with, because they can work well under pressure, and have a good sense of humor. The hardest part of this job is whenever someone called in sick and it's busy, all of us had to take more responsibilities than usual and it is a little bit stressful.

Crew Member (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – August 7, 2016
At Tim Horton's I learned how to become a leader and embrace my communication skills. By motivating my fellow crew mates to meet our drive thru times and abide by Tim Horton's standard I could guarantee our guest's got the freshest coffee every time. I enjoyed helping train new staff, and getting our regular guest's coffee orders ready in advance; seeing the smile on their face and their warm welcome was the best part of my job. The hardest part of my job was being isolated by other staff because of ethnicity. The reason I had to leave was because often times I was excluded from conversations simply because I could not speak another language aside from English. It flabbergasted me, that I have been denied raises based on the economy or my age rather than my workplace capability. I would work at Tim Horton's again gladly if the exclusion was not present because I love the friendly fast paced work environment.

Manager (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – August 5, 2016
Always a very busy place, so always felt like there was lots to do, but hard to get yourself composed sometimes as there was always so much going on. Management was very good about giving you the hours you need, but it is likely you wouldn't get the exact hours you want until you had been working there for around 3 - 6 months.
productive place and learned lots of skills from them

Crew Member (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – August 4, 2016
Typical day of work would have two rush periods but would be slow the rest of the time. Would typically work 7am-3pm. I learned how to work in a fast pace environment, how to work store front as well as in the back preparing food. Management was not the friendliest but most co-workers were nice and wanted to help one another out. The hardest part of the job would be working with rude management. The most enjoyable part of the job would be serving customers and receiving positive feedback.
Hostess/Server (Former Employee) – Mount Forest, ON – August 4, 2016
Working at Tim Hortons was a great experience for a starter job. As I had previous jobs before yes, but this job was more hands on. The people I worked with were all very different and depending on the person they were, it was hard to get along with some. Most made the job feel welcoming, some did not. I cherished the days I worked with certain people and dreaded the others. But all in all, I still went to work with a smile on my face, knowing the customers would see that smile and know they were welcomed also. I learned a lot about how to still keep your cool when a customer isn't being the nicest person to you. I also learned that if a customer says you did something wrong, don't try to fight it and say "no". Just accept that you did the wrong thing and fix it for them. Even if it wasn't your mistake. The customer is always right and you should just fix it to be courteous anyways. The most enjoyable part of this job would be that every day is different. Sure it is the same place, but each day you're doing a different task, or you're at a different station and that makes it exciting each day to go in and have something different. The hardest part of the job would be making sure everyone is always happy. Because people react differently to tough situations, it's hard to always keep everyone happy. I could apologize a countless number of times to a customer but if I am not telling them what they want to hear then they won't be satisfied with me at all. Thus I am the one not making them happy, and that would be the hardest part for me. Over all, it was a good job, I just wishmore... I would have got along better with my manager, whom happen to be the one that made the schedule.less

everyday is a challenge day for me and to my co-workers. everyday new people to encounter different behavior towards us. many things to learned how to make your work to be fun and not tiring because you enjoy working. management is not quite good because there's no appreciation towards us( employees) salary is we don't know what based on.most enjoyable part of job is more customers admire us and appreciate our hard work.
Supervisor (Current Employee) – King City, ON – August 3, 2016
Working at Tim Hortons I have further developed interpersonal skills such as my ability to communicate with customers and fellow coworkers. Being in a fast paced environment I have been able to acquire skills that are necessary to maintain an efficient work environment.
