I applied online - interviewed at Tim Hortons in July 2014.

Interview Details – The interviewing process was fairly simple I brought in a resume and was asked what specifically I did for each item under experience.

Interview Question – There really wasn't one if you do some studying of the buisness   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Everybody on here says there's no way to get above minimum wage but I was offered in at 8.00 dollars an hour which is what I was hoping for.

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Buffalo, NY

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Tim Hortons in January 2011.

Interview Details – I applied to the Tim Hortons in the Student Union of the University at Buffalo. The questions were very straight forward (what I'm going to school for and extra curricular activities). There's no need to even get dressed up for the interview because they're really desperate to hire people. Overall, this was quite a stressful part-time job. I lost 16lbs working at Tim Hortons because they make sure you're always moving. The customers don't treat you like a human being. I strongly advise you to look for another job if you're considering working at this particular location (the line in the morning sometimes goes out the door).

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.

Interview Question – Why should I hire you?   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Tim Hortons in January 2014.

Interview Details – Filled out an application online. Got a call within 10 minutes of filling out the application. Interview the next day & started working the following day. The interview was very laid back. Didn't ask too many questions. Just where I currently went to school, how long I had left, my past work experience, and when i could start. I use to work at Mcdonalds so she loved that. I was hired on the spot.

Interview Question – There was no difficult or unexpected questions..fairly simple   Answer Question
