Tips

When you’re at him Hortons next, don’t be afraid to tip them!

I used to work there and had no clue before hand.. now I leave any change I am given for them.

It all adds up and why not help out someone ?

    Are they actually allowed to keep it or do they have to donate to camp days? Lots of jobs are hard. Hope you tip others.

    Is it wrong to expect people to do their job for the agreed wage between them and the employer? Tipping is getting out of hand.

  3. I don’t think they are allowed to keep the tips and instead put them in that charity box thing they have. I might be wrong.. you’re not really getting the same level of service or meal prep as when you go to a restaurant.. if they can take a tip sure it’s nice, but I don’t think they are allowed.

  4. A few years ago I was told they aren’t allowed tips so I haven’t offered since. Has the policy changed? And yes I was told it goes in the donation box as well.

    • I think it depends on the store. I worked there 10 years ago and we got to keep tips, they were just spilt up among everyone on that shift. My sister worked there a few years ago and a different store and they didn’t get to keep the tips. Not sure what the store did with them.

      Yeah they are all privately owned. Depends on the store manager

  5. When my children worked there, they were allowed to keep tips. However, the tips were collected through the shift then split evenly among all the workers.

    Why exactly would I tip Tim Hortons workers when I don’t tip every other person I see in my everyday life? I don’t tip the grocery check out lady, the guy working in the gas station, and NO ONE tips me at my job… soooooooo why exactly do the Tim Hortons workers deserve a bonus everyday?

    Depending on the store, they may not be allowed to accept tips. If it’s a corporate store then no tips. If it’s a franchised location it’s completely up to the owner.

    Every time I’ve ever tried to tip someone at Tims they told me its against company policy to accept tips and they can get in shit for it.

  16. I worked at tims and loved it haha. I worked nights and on weekends I would make almost 50$ in tips those nights. And I was aloud to keep tips then. I never expected tips. But was grateful when I did get them

  17. TRUE, how hard is it to work at Tim Hortons!? I don’t know how they ALWAYS mess up my order..

    [0]
  18. Lol tip at Tim Hortons? The same place that can’t even figure out ,all they have to do is press the lid down to put it on properly or actually listen to an order to get it right?

    Or… We can legislate a living wage. So you know, people who work 40-60 hours a week can actually afford to live with dignity and maybe, just maybe, have some extra cash laying around to buy something?

    What an idea!

      I dont think you are meant to provide a cushy living from pouring coffee or flipping burgers.. great for teens, or part timers etc.. want a living wage, get the skills for a job that provides one.

    • Sean Susun Sean Susun says:

      Lisa Whelan Did I stutter?

      I don’t care if you’re shining shoes for 8 hours a day. If you are willing to sacrifice your time, the most valuable resource you have, you should in turn be able to afford to live comfortably.

      Fast food is NOT an easy job, and if it were run by teens why is timmies open 24/7 and during school hours?

      Simply put, economies work better when people can live comfortably and have money to spend. Most people work for a large company who would do anything to be able to pay people $3/hr for keeping their machines running.

    • How is being able to afford food and shelter is considered a ‘cushy living’?

      Tanita Faye It takes a special kind of asshole to want working people to suffer through a lifestyle that isn’t sustainable so that our corporate overlords can enjoy a sliver more in profit. Congratulations!

    I don’t think people go to fast food places intending to tip…I’m sick of tipping. There was a tip jar at the bottle depot…the bottle depot…and yes I put a loonie in it after bringing in bottles but come on, I’m sick of feeling like I’m being judged for tipping.

    [0]
    • Tipping at the bottle depot?? Pffft I do not think so! If they collected and drove the bottles to the depot for me then ok. I’m so sick of the tip topic. Don’t people have more serious issues to post about?

    Here is a tip. When a customer asks for ham on a breakfast sandwich don’t just slap on the whole package of ham straight out of the cooler, thus making the rest of the sandwich cold too.

  22. Tim Hortons is not a real restaurant as it is only a franchise and you don’t need to tip franchises ( tim Hortons, McDonald, Wendy’s, Arby’s, Carl’s junior) etc…

    [0]
  23. Sometimes it’s a communication issues. Or you not speaking clearly into the intercom. Or speaking too fast. We pretty much have walkie Talkies…and if they are static then can be difficult to understand some people.

    I normally go in. If you can’t understand “double double or vanilla dipped timbits” then maybe you shouldn’t be working there…

  25. I’d like a tip for what I do too

  26. I would tip if the service was good but Tim Hortons have gone down hill with thier service. I go to McDonald’s

    Enough with the tip everyone BS. This is so typical of this generational trend where everyone wants a handout.
    You want more money? Set yourself some professional goals, achieve them and gradually, you will make more.

    • Couldn’t agree more. Started at the bottom too. It gave me the initiative to better myself because it sucked.
      My experience in getting a ‘living wage’ was taking on a second job for years.
      You want more, bloody well apply yourself and work for it.

  28. Tip them, pffftttt, go 3x a day and they go ape shit if your short a nickel!

    OP – perhaps you still work there? Hence, the reason for your post. Hmmmm

  30. Better start tipping the bus driver and the people at 711 too

    [0]
  31. Lets see. You just got a mandated raise and more to come. I haven’t had one in years. I stand and order my food. You hand it to me. Before I leave I wipe the crumbs off my table and put my garbage away and even stack my dishes in the alotted place – every person I see sitting in Timmies does this.

    And you wanted what?

  32. Here’s a tip, have steeped tea readily available, the same as you would coffee

    [0]
  33. I walk into Timmies and ask for 1/2 a dozen donuts, any kind.

    I was told they could sell 6, 12 at a time but not 1/2 a dozen.

    You want a tip? Seriously?

    [0]
  34. I’ve been going to the same Tim Hortons every freakin day, at least once a day for over 6 months and they still can’t get my damn order right…. I sure as he’ll am not tipping them

    When they can often fk up my easy coffee with cream, ill keep my change thanks!

  37. They tip themselves anyways. So…Yeah…No… I don’t know how many times I have been short changed in the drive-thru. That ten cents or so that they try to take or successfully take in an 8 hour shift multiplied by how many vehicles they get paying cash is a sizeable amount. They mess up my very simple coffee order almost every time i am there and shove it in my face before i even have a chance to respond, don’t give me a tray or straw, and scoop a dollop of cream cheese in the center of an undercooked, stale bagel, so yeah, if i don’t want to give ten cents or 50 cents, i won’t.

    • BTW McDonald’s has now become my go-to for coffee. They have a stronger blend and it’s always 30 cents cheaper, and you get a free one every 7th. McCafe all the way! Plus, there is a super friendly lady at McDonald’s in Whitecourt that I don’t know how but she is an anomaly. She is always chipper, always friendly. She treats every customer like her family. No wonder she has won awards for best customer service in our town. It should be standard what she does, and I bet she doesn’t get tips.

      [0]
    • You remind me of my mother. She always assumed if she was short changed so much a penny (back in the day) that is was probably in the cashier’s pocket rather than still in the till – just a result of a counting error.

      [0]
    • Charlotte Kay Nope. Not an error. They sit there and ask if you want your change back. Then you feel like a douche for saying yes, to the 5 cents or whatever. But, yes, it adds up when they do it to you every day. I usually pay with cash for my coffee but I think I might switch to phone pay, that way I am not getting short-changed.

      [0]
    • I have never ever been asked if I want my change back at a Tim Horton’s, it’s always just given to me.

  38. Or they’re human, and they make human errors. Not to mention the fact they’re incredibly busy in the mornings and usually understaffed. I have never stepped into a Timmies to see people sitting on their asses.

    Smiles make your shift go faster? Please. That appeases you, it doesn’t do anything for the cashier. Unless a cashier isn’t doing their job and are behaving disrespectfully, what’s it to you if they’re tired and exhausted?

    I worked food service in my teens. Never would I ever go back to that work again. I’m much better off now, in a better paying industry with more complicated responsibilities and it was much more stressful working a busy restaurant. The pay is garbage, the environment is fast paced and unforgiving of small mistakes, and customers treat you like you’re subhuman. To this day I’ve never been so regularly disrespected and treated like dirt than during my time in food service. Maybe an understanding smile from you as a customer would go a long way.

  43. Its been awhile since i worked fast food but ive worked at multiple tim hortons, and an A and W and we were not allowed to accept tips. If tips were given it had to go into the kids camp fund, which is were it should go.
