<div id="treeList"></div>
<script>
  $("#treeList").kendoTreeList({
    columns: [
      { field: "id" },
      { field: "name" },
      { field: "age" }
    ],
    dataSource: [
      { id: 1, parentId: null, name: "Jane Doe", age: 22, expanded: true },
      { id: 2, parentId: 1, name: "John Doe", age: 24 },
      { id: 3, parentId: 1, name: "Jenny Doe", age: 3 }
    ],
    filterable: true,
    filterMenuInit: function(e) {
      if (e.field == "name") {
        var firstValueDropDown = e.container.find("select:eq(0)").data("kendoDropDownList");
        firstValueDropDown.value("contains");
        firstValueDropDown.trigger("change");

        var logicDropDown = e.container.find("select:eq(1)").data("kendoDropDownList");
        logicDropDown.value("or");
        logicDropDown.trigger("change");

        var secondValueDropDown = e.container.find("select:eq(2)").data("kendoDropDownList");
        secondValueDropDown.value("contains");
        secondValueDropDown.trigger("change");
      }
    }
  });
</script>

Example - subscribing to the filterMenuInit event during initialization and changing the default operators

<div id="treelist"></div>
<script>
  function treelist_filterMenuInit(e) {
    if (e.field == "name") {
      var firstValueDropDown = e.container.find("select:eq(0)").data("kendoDropDownList");
      firstValueDropDown.value("contains");
      var logicDropDown = e.container.find("select:eq(1)").data("kendoDropDownList");
      logicDropDown.value("or");
      var secondValueDropDown = e.container.find("select:eq(2)").data("kendoDropDownList");
      secondValueDropDown.value("contains");
    }
  }
  $("#treelist").kendoTreeList({
    columns: [
      { field: "id" },
      { field: "name" },
      { field: "age" }
    ],
    dataSource: [
      { id: 1, parentId: null, name: "Jane Doe", age: 22, expanded: true },
      { id: 2, parentId: 1, name: "John Doe", age: 24 },
      { id: 3, parentId: 1, name: "Jenny Doe", age: 3 }
    ],
    filterable: true
  });
  var treelist = $("#treelist").data("kendoTreeList");
  treelist.bind("filterMenuInit", treelist_filterMenuInit);
</script>
