Great Team
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON12 November 2018
I had the opportunity to work with and meet a lot of the team in North America. The team is full of wonderful, inviting and supportive people. This was very helpful for internal growth as others were always willing to help and encouraged each other's success.

Would not receommend for employment High Turn Over
Sales Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Timmins, ON3 October 2018
Training was favorable.

I enjoyed travelling, but there was a High Sales Calls Count per day.

Mentor was selling into my territory; customers were telling me that this was happening. Manager did not care and did not remove from the sales budget.

They had a different account manager every year for the past 6 years. Should have took notice.

Training received was the only thing that was benefitial.
Pros
Training
Cons
High Turnover

Great innovative company to work for.
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Ontario30 July 2018
Great place to work. Selling great innovative products. Office and job site management. Some targets are unrealistic. too category to focus on. Promotion is based on who you know more than what you know. Even if you exceed your targets, if your RM does not like you, you are not going anywhere. They say it is not about ticking boxes but you have so much category of targets to hit before getting paid or advancing to the next level. Not a clear focus on a goal. More like a shotgun target to hit for here, there and everywhere.
Pros
Best products and service in the industry
Cons
Too much target category to focus on.

Excellent product but terrible processes
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON17 July 2018
Hilti offers great products that are generally relied on in the industry, but the logistics and procedures in place are painfully unreliable. Micro management is part of the culture at Hilti.

Territory Sales Manager, Industrial & Government (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON22 January 2018
Great products.

Lots of ongoing sales + product training.

Work/Life balance.

Job Security.

Career advancement opportunities (may require most to U.S.).

Weak leadership in sales team. Regional Managers are often very little more than distributors of forecasts + company communications. Most do very little to support their sales team or come up with creative solutions to help their team succeed.

Cons
Weak sales leadership.

Good playing field to help clients, customers and company sales reps
Shipper/Receiver/ Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Dsitribution Centre (central / main in Canada)26 June 2017
Service Department:

Seasonal challenge on the inbounds for repairs/ maintenance. From booking the tools, estimating (ordering of parts and seeking approval with estimate), repairing, shipping them back to customers.

Logistics:

A big challenge to maintain 24 lines per man per hour. From picking, packing and shipping. Mandatory annual physical inventory, usual half day on the Sunday.

I gained knowledge on Inventory control (SAP), from receiving, adjusting and depleting inventory. Daily/weekly cycle counts.
Quality control.

The hardest part of the job is to stay until everything is done. The most enjoyable part is to prepare anything and everything for the inventory. Setting up locations, receiving, adjusting stock, working on default locators, i.e. assigning and relocating. controlling the auto-replenishment.
Pros
Quarterly bonus, ok salary (there was room for improvement), good benefits
Cons
work load can be very demanding.
