Like any other fast food chain...
Cashier (Former Employee) – Potsdam, NY – February 6, 2019
Tim Hortons is basically the Canadian version of Dunkin Donuts. Except that they have good coffee. Tim's was a nice place to work at and very social environment. A typical work day consisted of taking orders for customers, making and giving out coffee & food items, restocking, cleaning, etc. The management really depends on the person, and if you have a good team or not. If you have cooperative and friendly people with a nice atmosphere, you'll likely have a good day. If you have people who aren't too nice and get frustrated, then you'll be pretty stressed out. The hardest part of the job like most jobs is keeping patience. Keeping patience is keen because you will most likely experience stressful and difficult situations but in the end, you have an eight-hour shift in total, get through that bad hour(s), keep pushing through and in the end, you won't even think about it the next day. A nice thing to enjoy about that is one thing you will not forget, which I think is the most enjoyable part of the job is, working with your staff. If you work in a friendly environment, make a friend or two, work hard and keep a good attitude, you'll feel like the day flew by. The free coffee helps too though.
Free/discounted items, social environment, simple tasks
Short Breaks, Management can be a hit/miss, not likely to get a raise
