I have been working at Tim Hortons part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Fun work environment, you end up becoming really close to the people you work with.
Biyearly raises up to 25 cents an hour
Easy to move up to supervising positions if you work hard and become friends with the managers
Really good first or temporary job.
50% off discount on food and free beverages while working.

Cons

VERY HEAVY Favoritism, especially when it comes to scheduling hours and promotions. Even if you bust your ass you won't see more than 16 hours a week or a promotion unless you're friends with the manager of your store. (This is coming from one of those "favorites").
Sometimes the work gets really stressful simply because the management will keep trying to get you to do tasks that can clearly be done in an obviously more efficient way.

Advice to Management

Treat all of your employees equally and listen to the employees when they come up with better ideas about how to get things done. Recognize when employees are working hard and don't ignore their requests for more hours or promotions when positions open just because they've never hung out with you outside of work.
Also, stop opening 20 stores in one small town. I hear that this happens all over the place and it kills your business at each individual store because you have another one on every street corner.
