Restaurant Team Member Interview

Restaurant Team Member
Calgary, AB (Canada)

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Tim Hortons in May 2012.

Interview Details – Initially was contacted via phone to come in for an interview at my convenience, and a date was set up quickly. The interview was very good, mostly was questions directed at me, which is sometimes reasonable. I find it better if there is communication from both parties. The interview was informative about what to expect, such as pay, hours, etc. Hiring took a week as mentioned, which was very quick.

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

Interview Details – I handed in my resume to the manager in person after my friend put a word in for me who already works there. I met her and she was very friendly and open to what I was saying. I didn't have an interview as she called me on the phone and left a message saying i had gotten the job. She was very welcoming to the process. People i work with say they asked easy questions.

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".
