Crew member (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 21 August 2018
I worked exclusively graveyard full- time for about a year and only learned the necessary skill set to do just that. The manager was a bit of an issue due to some schedule problems that arose many times and when working graveyard that becomes an issue. I enjoyed the baking aspect of the job as well as the self driven work style allowed.
Tim Horton's Cashier (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 21 August 2018
Tim Horton's is a fantastic entry level job, but not much else. Certain employees are heralded for being a thorn in the side of the hardest of workers, while those who put their all into their job are shafted. It is a great place to start, but perhaps not the best of choices for a career.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Waterdown, ON – 20 August 2018
Tim Hortons was a great place to work very friendly and clean work environment. Tim Hortons is a place loved by all residents in the area and always kept us staff busy. My team and I always kept a fast moving drive thru but also in store lines.
Great place to start working and learn a work ethic and responsibility
Tim Hortons Team Member (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 20 August 2018
Working nights was mostly clean up and prep work for the following day. In between that was a few costumers coming in for late night coffee. As a supervisor it was a very fast paced and strenuous day. The manager was ill equipped for the job and frequently made her employees feel belittled. I learned on nights how to best utilize my time and keep my coworkers motivated throughout the night. as a supervisor I learned how to handle disagreements with authority and to put myself ahead of a job that could replace me in a week.
Free coffee, learning experience
Lack of sunlight, inexperienced and belittling management
Cashier (Former Employee) – Vegreville, AB – 20 August 2018
Tim Hortons was a nice employer at the time. As a part-time worker on the verge of graduating from high school, it was everything needed. Flexible hours (for the most part, except days I would be booked on school mornings). The employees who had experience were kind-hearted making the struggles of fast food work not as bad. I do not regret my work and time there, but I am also happy working in other places where management has my back. There were many occasions where management would blame part-time employees for mistakes made by them and abusive customers were given vouchers for causing scenes, often encouraging wild customer behaviors. I would hope things have changed since then, but I guess it's part of the job.

It help me learn management roles and with personal skills like time management. Scheduling became a issue at times, bu other then that it is a great place to start your job experiences and highly recommend applying to Tim Hortons
Customer service (Current Employee) – London, ON – 19 August 2018
I do enjoy going to work each day but do not feel challenged in this job. I would like to find a job that challenges me. Since the increase in the minimum wage alot of the benifits and perks have been removed for example the benefits. I now have to work a year to recieve basic benefits instead of the usual 90 day waiting period thru the probation period.
