    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

    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.

    There was an ad for a position at the Tim Hortons on kijiji. I submitted my resume through the ad online as well as doing an online application. I then received a call a week later to setup an interview. The interview was set up for a week from that call. I went in for the interview it was very easy if your prepared. The interviewer was very nice and made jokes to ease the mood. The interview only lasted 5 minutes. She said she would get back to me in a few days however she didn't. But I got a call offering me the position 2 weeks after the interview which is today (good Friday). I was told to come in Monday to get a welcome package.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tim Hortons (Oakville, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    Applied online. Phone interview. Then on site interview. Phone interview was pleasant as recruiter was down to earth. When I went onsite to meet the managers, they were both rude and gave off a terrible impression. It's like they wanted me to do horribly on the interview. I knew right then I didn't want to work for them so I tuned out for the remaining time left wishing I never went.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Tim Hortons (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in January 2017.

Pretty easy interview, I was asked basic questions about what I did in my last job as a waitress/cashier and how many hours I want etc. Overall, not a bad experience.
