What our Graduates say about Hilti and their role as an Account Manager
“I chose to join HILTI as a Sales Trainee to gain local exposure within the industry and learn about the business. I feel passionate and proud of representing HILTI not only because it is a globally recognised company, also because my career is genuinely progressing, having taken over 2 new roles in 18 months. As an Account Manager I had challenges every day which made me grow and learn fast, not only about new products, but also building relationships. This gave me a great business foundation needed to do my current job."
- Ipsa Rivas (2013 Hilti Fast Start Program, 2014 Account Management, 2015 Field Engineer)
"I choose to work at Hilti because of the emphasis on training and development. New employees complete a two week sales and product training course in Sydney, giving you a foundation of knowledge to allow you to have an immediate impact. Teams across the country meet up regularly to try new products, discuss sales approaches and share their experiences. This is valuable to form relationships with team mates across Australia. The Account Manager role allows you the freedom to be entrepreneurial as it is your decision who to see, what to discuss and which products to demonstrate. Hilti provides you with all the tools needed to be successful and your team is always willing to provide guidance when you need it."
- Julian Rebello, (2015 Account Management)
“The culture within Hilti Australia is one that focuses on performance and caring which in turn nurtures growth and development. I am inspired by constant learning and self-development. I thrive in an environment where I am continually learning new things and developing myself. Each day is different from the last so there is never a dull moment.”
- Sherise Inniss-Hall (2013 Retail, 2014 Account Management)
“I wanted to work for a ‘best employer’ and there is definitely a reason Hilti has won this award five years in a row. From day one Hilti invests so much into its employees and it continues day in, day out. My personal and professional development is important to me and this is something that Hilti takes very seriously. Five weeks of annual leave is the icing on the cake! The most rewarding part of being an Account Manager is introducing customers to some of the most innovative tools, products and services on the market, getting to know their needs and growing with them to become an extension of their business”.
- Andrew Maytom, (2015 Account Management)
“I joined Hilti because I knew I wanted to be somewhere that valued its people as a strategic asset. I realised Hilti is a company that could nourish my potential. Hilti’s culture also aligns to the values I live by every day. Hilti has been recognised globally to be one of the top multinationals in developing leaders and I have been lucky to experience this. As an Area Sales Manager, I lead a team of 9 spread across QLD. I am always challenged and learning – about the industry quirks, our unique relationships with customers, the dynamics of running your own portfolio of profit and loss within a multinational framework."
- Flora Nguyen (2014 Human Resources, 2016 Sales Management)
“Hilti Australia is committed to its customers in offering the best products and services and always looking for ways to innovate. Hilti also invests heavily in the development of its people. I find this really encouraging especially at this stage in my career. There is no such thing as a typical day as an Account Manager, it requires the ability to adapt. A day can involve, a boardroom meeting with project managers to discuss fire-stopping solutions and then going onsite, getting “hands on” while demonstrating various tools and fixing systems. I really enjoy both sides and I am happiest onsite providing customers with solutions”
