    Leadership Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakville, ON (Canada)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Tim Hortons (Oakville, ON (Canada)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Round 1 is a short phone interview. It's pretty standard and I think almost everyone passes round 1 as long as there are no major red flags.

    Round 2 is a behavioural Skype interview. Since most people are ready to answer questions about items on their resume, they twist it a little bit and ask about your high school experience instead of university experience. Be quick and natural and you'll be fine.

    Round 3 is another Skype interview, more on the technical side. I got a case on pricing Timmies products but it was probably the easiest case I've ever seen (and I'm not even experienced in cases). There is some basic math involved, but it's VERY basic. The final product recommendation was super easy, it was the option that was the cheapest and had the highest revenue. TLDR it's easy.

    Round 4 is super day at their Oakville HQ. Morning starts with a review of RBI, tour, etc. Round 1 of the day is literally a business game where you work in a group of 4, each group is in charge of a different region (AP vs. North America, etc) and each region has different criteria for growth, price elasticity, etc. There are 4-5 round, and each round you can change price, ad budget or a couple of other factors and they have a simulator that gives you the results of your changes. If you do terrible on the game, it doesn't mean you're out but it does count against you a bit. Just make sure you can justify your answers and even if you screw up, make sure you explain why you think that happened.

    After that it's lunch and then after lunch they cut 1/3-1/2 of the applicants. Final round is a rapid fire panel with Tim's C-level execs (CEO, CMO, CFO). Key is to keep your calm, and explain your answers. It was actually not as scary as people make it and I had fun doing it. There is the classic "who would you hire/fire on the panel question".

    All in all process was pretty fun, recruiters were nice and I learned a lot.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tim Hortons (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    They don't hire quality workers, so anyone can get the interview and be hired. It's good because, more people have work opportunities, but honestly just ask for a form, fill-it-up and you got your-self a crappy job.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakville, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tim Hortons (Oakville, ON (Canada)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview and the recruiter asked basic questions relating to interest and salary expectations. I noticed that the recruiter also tried very hard to sell the culture of the company which was contradictory with the reviews on this website. After a few days I was invited to an in person interview with 2 members of senior management (which turned into 3 when I went in).

    The first interview was about my strengths, the background of the interviewer and the culture and the second interview consisted of some more behavioural types of questions. After the second interview the senior management member invited a third person in who hadn't reviewed my resume looked disinterested and asked questions that an applicant would have no idea how to answer unless they were part of the business already. This individual was also very condescending.

    After a couple of days I received a standard HR response stating that I interviewed very well and had impressive experience but wasn't selected. The reviews/tips on this website definitely align with my experience here.

    Ldp Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakville, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Tim Hortons (Oakville, ON (Canada)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was extremely unorganized. It was more difficult then it should've been. I would recommend everyone to not waste their time. They are looking for someone to overwork with minimal pay. The way they parted the interviewees at the final interview was brutal and reminded me of "picking teams" during elementary school soccer.
