Anyone who has ever had a customer service job knows they have some quirks. Working at Tim Hortons definitely has its own set of characteristics. Only those how have donned the visor know just what that experience can be like.
Sure, the hours are long and it can get really busy at peak hours, but is it all worth it in the end? We're not really sure.
Luckily, social media has allowed those of us who never worked at Tim Hortons to look at what goes on behind the counter.
People who have had the opportunity to be part of the Tims family also get the chance to relive some of their own memories, and share in the experience of their fellow employees.
TikTok, in particular, has given the workers of Timmies the perfect platform to share their hijinks, complaints, and stories in bite-size (Timbit-sized?) videos.
You might not think that manning the counter at the local coffee shop could offer a lot of inspiration for making content, but you would be mistaken.
