At the Tim Horton's outside of the Esso at Kingsway @ Willingdon... I could not help but be amused by the layout of the sign...

beejacon "What benefits should we post today?"
:greedy: "I don't think good wages is a good one, we were a bit short cashed last week so we gotta keep it minimum."
beejacon "But it attracted Joanne last week and she's pretty good so far."
:greedy: "Yea well we can just offer good health benefits."
beejacon "Why? Benefits cost us a fortune."
:greedy: "Just don't hire old sick people and the costs will be low."
beejacon "Ahhh gotcha... and at least pay for their training."
:greedy: "Ummmm..."
beejacon "It helps, we retain more employees that way because they feel guilty if they leave"
:greedy: "Oh, that sounds good, but we need one more benefit to make it attractive."
beejacon "Paid vacation?"
:greedy: "No."
beejacon "Opportunities to advance?"
:greedy: "No."
beejacon "Ooo, ooo, good wages?"
:greedy: "We discussed that already remember?"
beejacon "Oh yea..."
:greedy: "I'll just throw in flexible hours."
beejacon "Oh good one, so they feel special and important even if we pay them crap."
:greedy: "Great, pat ourselves on the back now let's post this sign up front."
beejacon "In record time too! I gotta rush to the dealer to pick up my SLK."

Careful, these signs were used in the US last Fall to get unsuspecting men and women to enlist in the US Army. Of course, Tim's stood for "The Iraq Mission".

My wife worked with Tim Horton's. A lot of them are franchises (if not all). When her bosses treated her like crap, she walked around to the other Tim's in the area, dropping off her resume.

Apparently Tim's Corporate Policy is that franchisees can't hire other Tim's employees without WRITTEN approval. What a way to screw the front line people. Needless to say, shortly after that, my wife quit.
