I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at McKesson Health Solutions in May 2013.
Interview Details – I was initially contacted by a personable, professional and knowledgeable recruiter who then passed my credentials onto another recruiter on the East Coast. This individual was formerly with Spherion and lacked knowledge of the technology and was rather confrontational.

Very Easy Interview
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McKesson Health Solutions.
Interview Details – I was working for another company and posted my resume on a job search website. Someone from McKesson called me about 2 days after I posted my resume and immediately scheduled a phone interview with one of the managers. The telephone interview was more of a discussion instead of question/answer session. The manager wanted to know about my career goals. At the end of the call, he told me that he would get with HR to fly me out for a face-to-face interview. The very next week, I went to the office and met with 3 or 4 managers individually. Once again, it was more of a conversation than a question/answer session. A day or so later, I received a call from HR with a job offer. Overall the hiring and interview process was very fast and easy.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at McKesson Health Solutions in August 2009.

Interview Question – describe the technical architecture of solutions Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at McKesson Health Solutions in October 2008.
Interview Details – The actual interview process consisted of the following steps:
-- Phone interview / screening with the Corporate Recruiter
-- Phone interview with the Hiring Manager (a Director)
-- In-person interviews (both 1:1 and group) on site
I had to follow up quite a bit after the actual on-site interviews, but this was quite understandable as I was interviewing during a time when the economy was surely and rapidly heading into a seemingly bottomless recession. After I accepted the offer, I had to undergo a background check.
For the position I interviewed for, sound knowledge of Java programming and databases should have carried any candidate through. Expect to be challenged to think beyond your past projects during the technical interviews.
