I worked at Tim Hortons for only 2 weeks, and it was a total nightmare. They told me they hired me for 8 dollars an hour and were actually only paying me 7.50. I was “allowed” to eat a free donut each shift, but no sandwiches or food without paying, however when I tried to eat my donut was yelled at and told I couldn’t eat. It wouldn’t have been a problem if that rule went for everyone, but I couldn’t help but notice how every other employee was eating on the clock for FREE , not doing their jobs and not being penalized for it. but when I got my FREE food, I was yelled at. they broke minor labor laws by making me work 6 hours straight on my feet; with no breaks, making me wipe tables, sweep & mop all floors, throw away all trash cans & carry them to the stock room, rebagging all cans, hand cleaning the men’s & women’s bathrooms, the list goes on. I quit immediately after they broke the minor laws.
2 days training
4pm to late night
Training is a joke. You will watch videos that show and tell you how to make the drinks. But as soon as you go on the floor you are with a trainer for about 1-2 shifts and then you are on your own. And even when you are with the trainer, half the time they will be short so you will be left alone and not know what to do as it is literally your first shift on the floor.
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!
Parlez-nous de vous
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.
Only if you become an assistant manager.
