The only benefit they give you is about 20% off employee meals after your full three months probation of working there and the only time it can be applied is when you are working.

I think evening shifts are much better than others for a student because it is easy to maintain a balance between work or study. Moreover most of students like because they don't like to go for work in early time. I think most popular time is evening among students.

Was just interviewed today and hired!
The interview process was very formal at the Tim Hortons I applied to. She came in with a piece of paper outlining all the questions, and we sat down at some empty chairs and went through them and she wrote down what I said.
Some of the questions were:
1. What does it mean to work in a team environment?
2. How can you be the most effective in a fast-paced environment?
3. A customer has spilled some coffee on the table and is very embarrassed about it. What should you do?
4. A customer is angry while you are taking their order and is ridiculing you. What should you do?
5. What are your hobbies and things you like to do in your spare time?
6. How old are you?
7. You are done your shift at 3pm but your replacement hasn't arrived yet. What should you do? (Don't just say wait - I said I would bring the problem to my supervisor's attention).

That's all I can really remember, it's not too hard, just use your common sense, smile, make eye contact, and you should get the job!

Work with employees and stop the alliance with workers. There seems to be clicks and new employees get kind of a left out feeling and alot of them leave.
