    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed 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.
