Hilti is a good company with all the right structures. Where it lacks is diversity within upper echelon management. They prefer to hire expats in management and not South Africans. The career path is not clearly defined if you are a new graduate. As it involves you working through all the business units, but no proper timelines.
Typical day - visiting customers, planning, trade learning Learned - a lot about construction, selling, and customer handling Management - Good Workplace culture - culture is amazing but the role is very solitary
There are challenges and always have a room for growth The management is very supportive and i have learnt to blend in new teams . the most enjoyable part of the job is that i do things mostly with the team and gain more experience and learn new technology on a daily basis
Industry is fast past and there is not enough time to balance work and private life. Sales people work in different regions and do not share enough experience with each other. Sales regions is to wide spread and there is not enough support from different departments.
Business culture is very good

In a caring and peformance orientated culture - Manage and implement the sales and business development strategy for the Industry Segment in South Africa. - Manage 8 Account Managers and 2 service specialists directly in JHB and Durban with 3 indirect reports in PE and CPT - Achieve Industry segment targets and objectives on a national level - Develop strategies to further sub-segment the business unit - Recruitment, coaching and mentorship of each AM.

Work Life balance
Hilti afforded me the opportunity to work with and around different levels of management, from a hands on labourer to top mine management. The culture within Hilti was amazing and one felt you were indeed part of a family.
Always having the best tools on hand

.i used to enjoy every single day while i was at Hilti cause i intent to invest love in whatever i m doing. i learn a lot at Hilti their culture four core principles,Integrity,Honesty,Teamwork and Commitment that was a driving force to our pmp contract. i worked with most friendly co workers in every department. Management were so supporting as its a chain if subordinates are good also the line manager has contributed towards you achievement so its collective development. hardest part its was during my two weeks from employment when the co worker was suppose to go on leave and i havent settle much to the setup however it was a good learning curve i indeed enjoy my stay.
