Store Front Cashier Interview

Store Front Cashier

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Tim Hortons.

Interview Details – Quick, easy interview in a really small confined space. Didn't take much convincing to tell them why I should be hired. I definitely aced the interview and I felt very comfortable speaking to the manager. I highly suggest that young people consider Tim Horton's for employment. Older, more skilled people can do better.

Store Front/Cashier Interview

Store Front/Cashier
Kamloops, BC (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Tim Hortons in March 2013.

Interview Details – Applied on-line. Got call from HR Manager the other day. Interview was very easy, just basic questions (your weaknesses and strengths, why you want to work here, why should we hire you, etc.) Felt like I was dressed-up too officially.However, I think, it's better than to come in sneakers)). Not so easy to tell about Tim Hortons in general as most of them function on franchises, so everything depends on ownership.

Interview Question – Nothing unexpected or super difficult   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiations. Latter I asked my manager to get more hours and I got 40 hrs/per week(initially applied for part-time)

Store Front Cashier Interview

Store Front Cashier
Woodbridge, ON (Canada)

I applied in-person - interviewed at Tim Hortons in June 2012.

Interview Details – Applying in person to the manager is best with an application and your resume.
Interview is easy once you get one. Just talk about how energetic you are and how you love team work and be flexible for scheduling. I gushed about how I love coffee and have experience in a fast-paced environment. It helps to say that you are willing to fill in for any short staffed days on short notice.

Interview Question – Do you mind working in all three of our stores? Seriously:)   View Answer

Negotiation Details – LOL...I do not wish, nor will I work nights. Manager: "no problem".

Store Front/Cashier Interview

Store Front/Cashier

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Tim Hortons.

Interview Details – I applied to 58 tim hortons, 5 called me back. 2 interviews that didnt lead to a job.

Those 2 interviews mainly consisted of situational based questions. Got the interview calls less than a week after applying.

Got an interview with another tims. They only asked me my availability and if i worked in food service before(i havent). Interview lasted a minute, got a call a couple of hours later asking if i would like the job. I accepted. Got 2 other tim hortons interviews after I accepted that offer, so i didnt go to those.

Interview Question – What can you offer us that they (their current workers) cant?
When was a situation when you went above and beyond your expectations?
When were you put in a difficult situation and how did you react?
