You’ll have broad product knowledge across the complete Hilti catalogue, which opens lots of career options for the future.
Between serving customers in a retail environment, you’ll carry out day-to-day processes like entering orders, receiving goods, accepting repairs and managing cash and inventories. The purpose of this role is to manage and operate a Hilti Store to maximize walk-in sales and smaller field accounts and provide a high level of customer service.
