    Amazing people, all the opportunities in the world, focused on being the best, providing the best, and knowing the most.

    Technical Service Intern (Current Employee) Tulsa, OK

    ProsThe employees are amazing, most of them really love Hilti and live and breath it's ideals. You have the opportunity to do anything, if you talk to you manager you can stark in sales and move to account manager, or marketing, or where ever it is. You also have the opportunity to travel. Hilti can take you anywhere in the US, as well as to Germany and multiple locations in Europe. The benefits are outstanding (at least at corporate) they have wellness classes which are unlimited exercise classes for $15 a month. The pay is excellent, they also do bonuses which can be quite substantial. Many positions are offered a car and other perks. They have a great culture where they want you to learn about Hilti and what makes it Hilti. What each product does, etc.
    Cary (the CEO) is amazing. He is thoughtful, smart and extremely personable. He's "down on the floor" interacting with people when he's at corporate and not traveling. They set goals and strive for them.

    ConsTo move up you have to be willing to move, which is great for you professionals but not necessarily couples, or families.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing.
