How to Get Hired
We asked Hilti, Inc. for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
We seek candidates who show openness, humility, an inclusive mindset and a desire to continuously improve and grow – both the business and their skills and abilities. The right candidate should be a self-starter with an entrepreneurial mindset and a drive to succeed. They should be looking for a career, not just a job, and should thrive in a team-based environment.
We want to work with people who have a desire to be a part of something bigger than themselves, and a strong desire to grow their careers in a performance and caring-oriented organization.
Our high-performing and caring culture make Hilti a unique place to work. Our culture is based on a combination of personal performance, teamwork and support.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Show us what you’re made of. We want people who will embrace our performance-oriented and caring culture and who will thrive here. If a candidate is passionate about building a better future, we want to know about it. We’re looking for energy and excitement.
Show curiosity. We want team members with a thirst to learn, courage to challenge and desire to improve things, including themselves.
Take time to learn about us before applying or interviewing. We make learning easy with our careers website, social channels and online reviews.
Understand and embrace our values. Integrity, courage, teamwork and commitment are important to us; they’re the heart of our business. If this resonates with a candidate, they should let us know why and how.
We operate in an international environment, so candidates should also embrace a global mentality and enthusiasm to connect with others locally and around the world.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Hilti North America is experiencing exceptional growth due to the commitment and innovation of our team members. This growth is evident in openings across a variety of functions – including sales, technical and corporate roles.
Most notably, we are expecting to hire many sales team members and leaders over the next 12 months. As we continue to grow beyond products into digital platforms, we will hire software sales consultants, developers, user-experience designers and eB2B experts.
We are always looking for new team members who want to grow and are open to well-rounded, cross-functional careers. We hire and develop employees regardless of gender, age and ethnic background.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
The best place to start is at https://careers.us.hilti.com/en-us. There, you’ll learn about our culture and commitment to our team members, customers and community. Use our Career Explorer tool to learn about personal development and get to know our Hilti team members. Interested candidates can easily apply on the site.
We love to meet prospective team members at recruiting and networking events around the United States. Last year, we participated in over 100 in-person university activities, veteran and military events, and conferences supporting gender and ethnic diversity.
The best way to learn about Hilti is by connecting with our employees. In 2018, we launched a new referral platform that allows employees to make a direct referral or share a link on their personal social networks.
Candidates can also read authentic online reviews and join our conversations on a variety of social networks, including LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Glassdoor.
