    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tim Hortons (Bradford, PA (US)) in October-2017.

    Interview

    On the professional side they required me to do math and problem solving questions and needed a 14/15 to be considered for hire. Then I was required to lift something "heavy" to show proper technique.
    On the unprofessional side I made them aware that I am considering two jobs: one being hired with them and then a better paying job. They bribed me with free things and told me that they'll lower my pay at the other job when I transfer stores. Tried everything to get me to not work the other job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Tim Hortons.

    Interview

    Easy interview, quick and basic questions, and seemed pretty relaxed. The person interviewing me seemed a little un focused and not very professional as a manager though. But overall it was a typical interview for a chain like Tim Hortons.

    Restaurant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brooklyn Park, MN (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Tim Hortons (Brooklyn Park, MN (US)) in June-2017.

    Interview

    What a joke! I applied for a RM position, was told that those positions had been filled, but could interview for a Shift Manager position for $14/hr. At the interview, the person that interviewed me (pretty sure it was the District Manager) told me that there were no SM positions available, but they had Team Member positions for $11/hr available. Upon further job hunting (after declining any position they could offer before they got that far), I discovered that the day before I was told that all RM positions had been filled, they had posted on Craigslist. Also, 4 days after my interview in which I was told there were no SM positions available, they posted on CL that they were looking for Shift Managers at the very store I interviewed at! Talk about a lack of professionalism! I wouldn't want to work for a company that was that disorganized and inconsistent.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Tim Hortons (Erlanger, KY (US)) in January-2017.

    Interview

    It was very quick and easy. They went down a paper and asked the questions that were required. The questions weren't very personal and we're pretty standard. It seemed like they were gauging how committed you are and if you were willing to do certain things. They hired me right on the spot.
