Account Manager Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Hilti North America.

Interview

The process starts out with a 30 minute phone interview with the internal recruiter and then moves to a panel of managers. Keep in mind that when you are interviewing in front of that panel, they are interviewing several candidates the whole day. About 5 minutes into my interview, one of the managers there said he had a prior obligation to get to and would only be able to stay for 20 minutes. I honestly should have cut my losses right then and there because they had either had already decided on hiring someone that they interviewed before me or maybe I wasn't that impressive. I won't lie, I really wanted to work there because I am familiar with their product and it really is good quality, but at the same time it might have been a good thing it didn't work out because I don't think I would be able to relate to the managers very well.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Hilti North America (San Francisco, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was referred to a recruiter through a campus recruiting event. Thereafter, I was interviewed over the phone with two different people, one being the recruiter and the other a Regional Sales Manager. Consequently, I was asked to come to the HQ and complete both my ride-along and final interview with several Senior level Managers. The Process went very well. Everyone I met was extremely friendly and truly interested in getting to know me.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Hilti North America (Tulsa, OK) in September 2016.

    Interview

    First interview was with HR over the phone. Once I passed initial screening an on-site interview with the hiring manager was scheduled. 3 weeks later HR called and said hiring manager would reach out for another interview. I was contacted the next day and 2nd on-site interview was scheduled. Following week I did a day in the field (van ride) with a local account manager. Two weeks later I was told an offer would be coming but a new position opened... Long story short, 2+ month process and accepted the offer.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Hilti North America.

    Interview

    I met with the recruiters at a college career fair. I followed up with them about potential opportunities and they set up a phone interview with me fairly quickly. The HR manager said that she would let me know when possible locations become available and whether or not I would get a second interview. I haven't heard anything from them in over a month.

    Interview

    Applied online in October. Received a call from HR about a month later. Had telephone interview with HR person. I was supposed to interview with hiring manager but I ended up having a panel interview with 3 people. I can only assume I didn't get the position. I never heard from them after the panel interview. I reached out to HR a couple of times with no response.

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Hilti North America.

    Interview

    It is a typical interview just be honest. I got recruited from my university and had to go through 2 interviews, one with a recruiter and the next with upper management. It wasn't to hard but they really dig into things you have done in school and internship experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    Interview

    Started out with an online applications, which was really easy to complete. A few days later, I received a phone call to setup a phone interview, which was comfortable and not at all intimidating. I was then flown out to Plano, TX to interview face to face with the hiring manager and his supervisor. Again, that was a very good experience.
