    Pros

    the manager I had gave me a set schedule, time off when I had health problems and the workload was fairly light

    Cons

    I offered to help out when staff was short for overnights and was never taken off them- there was no discussion of being put back on my regular shift. The overnighters were also told at one point they were not allowed to have phones on them which is a safety issue when going to an outside freezer at night alone.

    Advice to Management

    appreciate overnighters more, find harder workers for second shift

  3. Great first job!

    Pros

    I loved baking at night, I was able to work by myself to achieve the pars. The money was OK, extra bonus cash everyday from tips

    Cons

    But towards the end of the shift, after the store opened was my busiest time 8-10, it was difficult to "switch" modes at that point and do customer service etc..

    Advice to Management

    My manager was very childish and would gossip and judge all the customers which obviously makes me think she did the same to me when I turned my back

  7. Horrible, draining and belittling!

    Pros

    Co-workers and some customers other than that there are no pros for this company! I do not recommend this company at all!

    Cons

    Owners are horrible people that only care about the money not the ones making it for them. TDL has way too many promos come out at once!

    Advice to Management

    I was the only manager out of the three locations that actually work with the team on the floor to get the job done and help! I stood up for my Co-workers and was disrespected because of it! The higher you move up the more disrespected they treated you. The owner are disgusting human being and would speak to you like you ment nothing to them! I got NO perks for being a manager. My staff are over worked and under paid. Some havnt received raises for years no matter how hard I fought for them.

    Pros

    It's a good place to have your first job, its not too demanding and the people that work there are wonderful. Their first priority is the customer no matter what. They will do anything to make the company happy. It's an easy to learn job. Scheduling is very flexible, and they are very good with giving you time off.

    Cons

    It can get stressful, mainly during the morning shift. This is when it becomes difficult because (at least at my location) my managers are so concerned with the drive-thru times, they lack in hospitality. It is also difficult for the rest of the employees when our managers are constantly yelling about the time, I think it makes us less efficient.

    Advice to Management

    I think they need to worry more about the needs of the employees and how they are treated. Customers are important but without your employees you can't serve the customers.

    Pros

    Second job
    Night shift
    Good hours at first but overworked feeling works in..
    Free donuts and coffee !

    Cons

    Management is all good but the franchise owner makes me not want to represent this brand .. He's demanding, he screams at his workers to the point they run out historically crying and never come back .. One lady never even showed up for her first shift because she felt so intimidated at interview ... The owner also is very loose on his standards in the restaurant and makes everyone's life more difficult ... He needs to be consistent with procedure ...whatever that procedure maybe be .... Very unprofessional to the point we have had no night supervisor for Atleast 6 months because the fact is managers get the shortest end of the stick from the owner .. It's gotten to the point I have no clue how he has been in business for so long when his standards are the equivalent of a jungle ... The brands training videos are so out of touch from storefront operation ... It's a sad sad place to work with crappy donuts. Sorry not sorry

    Advice to Management

    Do more investigating with your owners because he is a prime example why most Tim hortons cannot keep employees ... He screams and yells makes employees feel like a pile of dirt to the point you can't bite your tongue any longer .. And I am not afraid of anyone who sits back and doesn't do work besides updating his Facebook status .. I have no clue how he has been in business for so long when his standards are the equivalent of a jungle

  10. Alright place

    Pros

    50% off food, manager was nice, people were overall friendly. It was a decent job to get buy. Not one to build a life

    Cons

    Supervisors could be very dumb, hours were sometimes a joke. Got randomly put on overnight a few times.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire a distract manager that steals money.

    Pros

    Very fast pace makes the day go faster. Meeting new people every day. Lots of friendly people. Great training as well

    Cons

    The wages are not that great but that's to be expected it is a fast food restaurant. It can get very heated sometimes with the ruSh of customer
