    I have been working at Hilti USA full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Transparent, consistent communication from upper management
    Management is visible and accessible; open door policy
    Diverse work force is a priority
    Team members given opportunity for annual feedback about satisfaction and many teams follow up with disciplined actions to improve low-scoring areas
    Culture of caring for team members; managers are encouraged to be flexible with regard to team members' personal needs
    Competitive benefits, including initiatives and support by Total Rewards to improve overall health of team members

    Cons

    Mobility for career growth at Hilti is a given. It is clearly expressed during the hiring process. That is a con to many people, but the vast majority know it up front. Team members may be encouraged about their career growth based on their expressed mobility at a given time. If their mobility changes, yes, that may limit them professionally within the company. That's a personal decision every individual must make.
    The Tulsa, OK headquarters location can be a limiting factor in attracting talent. It is also a challenge for team members who travel a great deal, due to lack of direct flights. The company is currently investing resources to integrate team members and their families new to Tulsa and make it a pleasant transition. (Don't fall for the "Friends" references to Tulsa. It's actually a beautiful city with much to offer, including a comparably low cost of living.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve consistency among team leaders/managers in application of policies and demonstration of the corporate culture so that "no team member is left behind"

    Account Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hilti USA.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, got call next day. Whole process took 2 or 3 weeks. First is the standard 20 minute phone HR interview, nothing complex, mostly questions about your resume, etc. Then a visit to a Hilti Center for a half day of in-person interviews. Nothing complex, they really want to find if you are a good "Hilti culture" fit, read up online about the company, values. Next you will spend a day "in the van" with an account manager to see if this is the kind of job you really want (jobsite visits are 95% of your working day) - your ride will evaluate you before you make it to the next stage. Another half day in-person interviews. Refresh your math skills (add 1 /34" and 5/16"), decimals.They will check references, education. Know the sales process and be prepared to recite it and give examples. A few logic situation question.

    Interview Questions
    • Could be some role playing to see you if you panic, logical or useless - sell me a pen, how do you react to irritated customers, etc. This is a sales environment. Nothing complex or out of the box. Read up on the company and have something intelligent to say or comment.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Try not to except their first offer and make a logical case why not - this is sales, uncovering objections and closing well is a desired and unique skill.
