I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at McKesson in December 2012.
Interview Details – Prescreen via corporate recruiting. Then, there was a panel interview with three OM's on site. Last, a final interview with the specific department the company had in mind for me. However, two of the interviewers did not show up.
2nd Interviewer (from second visit) kept asking me to repeat my answers to capture them on paper. Interviewer was clearly an "office" person and as she kept repeating expectations that she wanted me in the floor and that was not her job to be there. She also asked a lot of questions about dealing with difficult people which told me she has many. She also made little eye contact..
They were eager to "fill" a night shift position. The security people were VERY professional and called me "Mr" with each visit.

Interview Details – McKesson follows a behavioral interviewing model for all of their interviews. While this does ensure consistency, it is also very rigid and hard. Interviewers don't have any freedom to vary from that model or really get to know the candidate.
Interview Question – Most of them were difficult as it got repetitive. Very cold. Answer Question
Very Easy Interview

I applied online and the process took 6 days - interviewed at McKesson in July 2013.
Interview Details – I applied online for a posting on 7/3/2013. I received a call from an HR Sourcing Specialist on 7/9/2013 for an initial phone screening. I then received a call from another HR person (Sr. Talent Advisor) on 7/10/2013. Both screenings lasted less than 20 minutes. Both HR folks gave me the impression that I was a shoe-in for the role! I then had a phone screening from the hiring Director on 7/11. His call took about 20 minutes as well. Note that the role I applied for called for was a Sr. Specialist calling for 8 years experience-I have well over 15. Note I am also a female, Military veteran, minority and met every requirement and preferred qualifications mentioned in the description. HR told me the salary range for the role, and I even though it was well below my current earnings I was willing to take the 20K hit to get in the door. Note also that the Director I would report to had less experience in Medical Devices than I did. Note that I have also applied to this same McKesson site over 5 times in the past 5 years. I can only conclude that McKesson is a Old Boys Club that does not value diversity, nor truly attempts to expand their workforce outside of their walls (The role was filled internally). My impression of the Hiring Directors' interview was more of a "pissing contest" whereby he tried to rule me out-than have an honest exploration of my experience. It was obvious to me that HR tries hard to gain talent outside of the silo, but current Management is desperate to keep their staff pushed down and hire less than qualified people so that their jobs are not in jeopardy. Note that the person that was in the role I applied for transferred out within 2 years of working for this Director, who has been on the job for 2 years. Bottom line-I'm a Director level willing to take a level 3 below my current level just to work for this company, and they dissed me! I wont apply again. Also, I went back into the career section to see if the job was still posted on 7/15 and it had been removed-"this job has been cancelled or is no longer available". I emailed the HR person to ask if I was still being considered and got no response, not even a form email stating that they had chosen another candidate. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL FOR A FOBRES14 COMPANY!
Interview Question – It was a "rapid fire" list of questions that were designed to rule me out rather than to explore my experience and how I could be a value to the company/unit. After it was over I felt like he was just "going through the motions" to get it over with. View Answer

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McKesson.
Interview Details – First round is over the phone with a corporate recruiter. Basic behavioral and resume-walk-through. Also questions about why McKesson and try to be specific. Most people who apply for this job have no idea what McKesson really does or how they make money. Do your diligence!
Invited back for the second round at the headquarters. Given a case (it's the same one every year so read up on it online) to put together and present in front of some top level people. Impressive but while the interviewers are generally nice, there are a few people that make you wonder if working there would be all frowns and leers. Again be ready to know WHY McKesson.
An impressive thing is to know what is happening in the industry, and be specific! Also know why and how McKesson has responded or lead efforts to deal with this.
