    Pros

    You always have the same schedule every week and they are not severe for asked holidays. they are flexible with watch you ask.

    Cons

    You cannot sleep, management is bad and they are never satisfied of your work. They ask their employees what to do to get better.

    I have been working at Tim Hortons part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    One of the things I enjoyed the most was the friendly atmosphere we had between colleagues. Especially because we were mostly students and we could make working fun. If you are a student, the schedule is pretty flexible.

    Cons

    Because of the stupid management, it could be stressful working there. During busy shifts, there weren't enough employees. There wasn't the necessary tools to do proper cleaning. Plus no advantage or benefits. No discount on food, we had to steal it. No recognition for good employees. No salary increase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The owner is a jerk and made sure to chose managers that would do whatever he says. he could tell them to jump under a bridge and they would have done it. They had no sense of management. Their goal was to make more money by giving less to customers and employees. I'm glad I quit because it was stressing me way too much.

    I have been working at Tim Hortons

    Pros

    At the Tim Hortons I am at, we are all like family. You get very close to other employees, joke around with them while on shift together, and actually look forward to seeing them on your days off. Working nightshift you get $10 an hour PLUS $30 - $35 tips each night. If you need money, this job is for you.

    Cons

    You're on your feet for 8 hour shifts. We only have a 30 minute lunch break in an 8 hour shift, so bumy the time I've eaten, I don't even have time to smoke. 8 hours no cigarettes. At least the break is payed. People don't always show up for their shift or are late so then you have to cover them, which sucks when you're dead tired and your feet hurt. Working nightshift, no one is there to replace you if you are sick, so you basically can't get sick, or have to risk losing your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior manqgement at my store are VERY helpfull. They bring us little gifts on holidays, work alongside us making jokes and making us laugh when its a long shift and we need a morale boost. I hear every single day how I am improving and am doing a good job. The boss really appreciates us, and that is why I enjoy working there and why more than 3/4 of the employees have been there for over 10 years, with some being there 20, 30, 35 years of service.
