    Field Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Hilti North America (Houston, TX) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I had been applying to Hilti for over a year and was already in touch with one of the recruiters. First, the recruiter does a quick phone screen to see if you're a good fit. Then, I interviewed with the director of the group. If the manager/director likes you, then you will be invited on a field ride to see a day in the life. If all goes well and your potential co-workers give positive feedback then they extend you the offer.

    Account Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of behavioral questions. Make sure you are prepared with lots of stories to answer them!   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hilti North America.

    Interview

    Submitted resume online, was asked to schedule a phone interview a month later, two weeks later I was flown to Texas for interviews with team members. One of those interviews was in person and the other was a Skype interview. My computer stopped working during the Skype interview and then it was cut short which was extremely frustrating because I did not get the same opportunity as the other two candidates who were interviewing with me.
