Hilti has always had a clear understanding of who and what our company should be for both our customers and our team. Because the core values of the military have been reflected and even formally adopted into the company's culture, it was simple to understand how to be successful here.
I've been with the company for 10 years, and have had five promotions. It's nothing short of awesome. Hilti is large enough to advance your career without having to go to a different company. The sky's the limit as long as you stay engaged and open to relocation.
Integrity and courage are actually stated Army values, and the Army is the quintessential team. Hilti's core values are very much what those who have served in the U.S. Army are accustomed to.
Teamwork is, of course, all about the team. That's where Hilti shines. If you give it your all, your team will be there for you. And don't limit your options. There are so many resources within the company. From career training classes, to 'riding along' with a teammate to see if the job is right for you, there are many ways you can take control of your career here.
In the service your teammates are everything. You are with them non-stop and depend on them. The same is true of Hilti. I rely on my teammates daily to get the job done. So the camaraderie and teamwork (at Hilti) are very similar in my experience.
