    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Tim Hortons (Fort Wayne, IN) in January 2016.

    Interview

    They were very desperate for employees because they were opening a new store. They will hire anyone who doesn't look like they do meth. There weren't really any questions asked. I was offered the job on the spot.

    Interview Questions

    • They didn't really ask any questions. The interview was spent telling me about the job and how great their low turnover rate is.   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Tim Hortons (Buffalo, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, and also gave the manager a letter to put myself out there since I really wanted the job at the time. I got called and had to complete a second additional application online. I went in for an interview with the Assistant Manager and it was all fairly easy, basic interview questions. Then I went in for a second interview with the Store Manager and it was pretty much the same thing, except we went over additional details of the hiring process including wage and uniform. I accepted the job at that second interview and went in for training about a week or two later.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Tim Hortons (Dayton, OH) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Quick and Simple, I was hired on the spot. The location that I interviewed for was on springboro and they always seem to be hiring so they definitely needed someone fast. She asked me what hours I was willing to work, asked me if I had experience in food service, running a register etc. She told me to come in the next day wearing a black shirt and pants, and I started training. No drug screen or background check. I never had time to watch the training videos, they just stuck me right in.

    Interview

    They called me and asked me to come in for an interview at the home Tim Horton's location-my boss owned three-and I wasn't waiting for long at all. She came out almost immediately to interview me, she asked me simple interview questions, at least simple enough for a fast food restaurant.
