Communications/Marketing Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Alpharetta, GA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McKesson in March 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 Question – Basic questions - none too difficult.   Answer Question

Professional Services Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Alpharetta, GA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McKesson in May 2009.

Interview Details – Met with 6 people. This included the hiring director, two managers, two VPs and the president of the business unit. Questions were pretty standard and fair. They basically asked about previous leadership experience and my management style.

Interview Question – What would be my biggest challenge in my new role and what is my 90 day strategy.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – HR calls with an official offer. I counter offered and they met me in the middle. Not a lot of room to negotiate.

Senior Product Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Alpharetta, GA

I applied online - interviewed at McKesson in November 2011.

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.

Accounting Internship Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Alpharetta, GA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at McKesson in February 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
