I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McKesson in April 2013.
Interview Details – I applied online, as you must with practically all positions now. There were no first- or second-tier, word-of-mouth leads that got me in the pipeline for an interview. I was initially interviewed by phone by a member of the HR department; it was a very standard battery of very legalistic, procedural questions. That took about 10 minutes and was over. I was told that if they were still interested, I'd hear from "someone soon." The following week, I was contacted by someone else in HR and a phoner was scheduled. It lasted about 45 minutes and was very detailed, though it was clear that she was reading from a prepared list of questions and had not really taken the time to understand my career history as spelled out on my resume. Once that was over, she said she'd forward my information to the hiring manager in the department and see if they still wished to proceed. That same day, I was sent an e-mail saying they wanted me to travel to the office (which is in a city other than where I live) and that McKesson would pick up the tab. As I was making arrangements to be away, I got an e-mail the next day saying that they had changed their mind and would be hiring someone else.

Interview Details – Director of Product Management didn't seem like he quite understood the role(s) of the Product Management methodology as he may not have had a formal training process so he asked a great deal about it. And, he had a bad temper, even on the phone! WOW.
Interview Question – What new processes would you bring? View Answer
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at McKesson in June 2012.
Interview Details – First interview was an on campus behavioral interview. Pretty standard stuff. About a month later there was another on-site interview with the hiring manager. It was more of a fit type interview. Everyone was nice throughout the whole process. The first interview was not specific to the job. I think that they just do a basic screen and then the next round is for a specific job.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you lead a team, and what was the result? Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at McKesson in May 2012.
Interview Details – Fairly straightforward process. It starts with an interview with a recruiter who makes sure you have the communication skills and the cultural fit for the company. Then a phone screen with a director who goes through your experience and wants to make sure you are a good technical fit. Lastly, you come in for a face to face with several other managers and directors. A lot of the interviews are one on one but there are a couple whith dev managers that are panel based.
Interview Question – Tell me about a non-technical problem that has required you to get buy in from disparate groups and required some negotiating. Answer Question

Interview Details – The interviews went on from June 7th and I got the final answer with in 3 weeks. In these three weeks I had 3 rounds of interview - 2 phone interview and one personal interview. They were really quick in replying after the interviews. In the first interview was just a phone screen by the HR. The next interview was behavioral by the hiring manager. He was really nice and asked simple questions about my past experience and educational background. The personal interview was based on how much the candidate knows about the product and what he/she could bring to the team.
