    I have been working at Tim Hortons full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love working at Tim Horton's, and have been going back time and time again. I love interacting with the guests, challenging myself every day to improve the speed of service during busy periods, etc. It's a job I truly love.

    Cons

    Some customers can be really rude, and not all management in every store can be motivating or know what it takes to work as management. Also, some employers don't even give you a discount on food. My advice would be to shop around, all Tim Horton's are run differently. Find the one that works best for you.

    Advice to Management

    Please remember that communication is very important, and also help your employees learn and grow. Don't expect everyone to walk in instantly trained.

    I worked at Tim Hortons part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some co-workers were nice and funny making the day go easier.

    Cons

    HORRIBLE schedule management. Was hired full time only to discover that in the system an part time so management gave me all the crappy shifts. Hours are never guaranteed. Supervisors think they're god. Not to mention managers. If your sick, you have to manage to find someone to replace you, if not...your obligated to work.

    Advice to Management

    Reorganize schedule management

    I worked at Tim Hortons part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Its a decent first job to gain some experience
    You get 50% off on food and free hot drinks.
    -You get tips every shift.

    Cons

    -Long shifts and lots of rushes. Some of my shifts were 10 hours.
    -Many times we were so busy that I didn't go on break until 7 hours after I started.
    -Barely received any training besides watching some videos which do nothing.
    -Scheduling or hours were inconsistent.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favourites and schedule people that actually want to work instead of people that talk.

    I worked at Tim Hortons full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working at Tim Hortons would be a good job for students although many others can be way better. It is a good place to initiate your first working experience but not more.

    Cons

    Owners are the cheapest people. Treated almost as slaves, the bosses are never satisfied, constant stress, negative ambience at work, most of the employees burn out

    Advice to Management

    The one and only golden advice would be; if you can avoid working at Tim Hortons, avoid working there.
