    Anonymous Employee in Gatineau, QC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Tim Hortons (Gatineau, QC) in November-2016.

    Interview

    Ils t'appellent afin de te rencontrer. Parfois, il n'y a pas d'entretient d'embauche ou sinon il est très facile et c'Est à propos de tes anciennes expériences de travail, mais à mon Tim Horton, ils t'appellent souvent seulement pour te dire que tu es embauché sans faire passé d'entretient d'embauche.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Amherst, NY (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Tim Hortons (Amherst, NY (US)) in January-2014.

    Interview

    Pretty basic. Asked questions about availability, history. Nothing too difficult.With the amount of turnover in fast-food, it seems they were looking for someone reliable and competent. My advise would be simple: be on time, don't be radical (please no crazy piercings or face tattoos) and asking about drug testing...not cool. If you can't pass, don't apply.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Geneseo, NY (US)

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Tim Hortons (Geneseo, NY (US)) in May-2013.

    Interview

    The interview was structured, but informal. It took place at the store during the middle of the day when there weren't many customers. The interviewer was polite and personable, and had a set of questions prepared for the interview.

    Cashier Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Tim Hortons (Buffalo, NY (US)) in January-2011.

    Interview

    I applied to the Tim Hortons in the Student Union of the University at Buffalo. The questions were very straight forward (what I'm going to school for and extra curricular activities). There's no need to even get dressed up for the interview because they're really desperate to hire people. Overall, this was quite a stressful part-time job. I lost 16lbs working at Tim Hortons because they make sure you're always moving. The customers don't treat you like a human being. I strongly advise you to look for another job if you're considering working at this particular location (the line in the morning sometimes goes out the door).

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Tim Hortons (Livonia, MI (US)) in November-2012.

    Interview

    Interviewing was fairly straight forward. I submitted a resume to the General Manager, and was given an impromptu interview. I was then contacted by the franchise owner for a 2nd interview. The questions were fairly generic, mostly about customer service, problem solving and past experience.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no unexpected questions, mostly "How would you handle X situation?" and "Give an example of when you display X quality".   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Tim Hortons.

    Interview

    Quick, easy interview in a really small confined space. Didn't take much convincing to tell them why I should be hired. I definitely aced the interview and I felt very comfortable speaking to the manager. I highly suggest that young people consider Tim Horton's for employment. Older, more skilled people can do better.

    Store Front Cashier Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tim Hortons (Lancaster, NY (US)) in June-2013.

    Interview

    15 min interview and hired on the spot. It was a very simple interview and not much too it. However now a days the interviewees have to go through a two step process. They interview with one of the management team and then they have to interview with the district manager. They drag they interview out for weeks not instead of a few days
