    Interview

    Started with a standard phone interview then I was contacted a few weeks later for a face to face interview which was much more detailed. Hilti is really looking for very young people that are willing to travel around the world to get promoted or take lateral positions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Hilti in March 2014.

    Interview

    A phone interview at first. It was about 15 to 20 minutes. Then I was asked to 1 to 1 interview and also a group interview(a sales case) and a summary interview. After all, a interview you read a case and present it alone. (a long sals case).
    People here are nice and I was not asked technical problems. They are friendly to applicants. Great company and awesome people.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Hilti.

    Interview

    My interview experience with Hilti was probably the most well-rounded interview I will ever experience in my career. There was hands-on component, a shadowing component, written test, a pannel interview, and a series of one-on-one interviews after that.
    I valued the interview experience they provided as it provided an honest concept of what the job function was and what the culture was like--so when they made the offer I did not have to think twice. Hilti is the best company I have ever worked for simply for the culture and the people.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Hilti (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2010.

    Interview

    There was an initial 1:1 interview followed by a panel interview. I did a Powerpoint Presentation and the questions were designed to gauge whether I knew my existing business. It is important to know your facts and stats in a Hilti Interview.

    Interview Questions

    • There were a great deal of questions about business metrics. I can't recall one that was the most difficult.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was not much room for negotiation as it was a new division. It was a take it or leave it proposition.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Hilti (Tulsa, OK) in May 2010.

    Interview

    It started as an intern job posted on college campus. On the campus career day, the company's HR team had a booth there. I inquired about it, filled out the form. 2 Weeks late, I got an interview. It was easy. the hiring director was so proud of his job and kept on talking about his own job and the company for 2 hours. I never got a chance to ask any question. Then the VP interviewed me, which was more routine and short. I got the job eventually.
