Very Difficult Interview
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at McKesson Information Solutions in February 2012.
Interview Details –
Process began with recruiter phone interview of about 1 hour. Asked pretty standard questions relating to experience.
Then interviewed with the manager who I would be working for by phone- this interview lasted a couple of hours and was a mix of behavioral questions--tell me about a time when you... Also asked reasons behind why I wanted to work for McKesson. One of the things I think he appreciated was that I mentioned the long history of the company and would like to be a part of its continuing success into the next century.
Made it to round three which consisted of the hiring manager sending me some files about one of their products and then asking me to put together a 15 minute training presentation--notes and PowerPoint to present at the final interview. I had 24 hours to put this together with an additional requirement- that I also do a training presentation on a subject matter of my choice.
At final interview, face to face, I had to do a training session on the two items above and then answer another slew of off the cuff situational questions using the incident, problem, solution format. Total time for this interview was about 3 hours.
I then received an email from recruiting the next day telling me thanks but no thanks. In retrospect, I should have kept the situational responses more to the point but I am a trainer and am used to talking at length.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you failed at handling a work-related situation? What happened, what did you do, and what was the result? Answer Question
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McKesson Information Solutions in August 2011.
Interview Details – The process consisted of a technical phone screen followed by an on site interview. The technical phone screen covered Java, J2EE, JDBC, and Relational Database concepts and implementation issues. This initial session lasted about one hour. The next step in the process, an on site interview, occurred the following week. The face to face interview consisted of a session with two developers with the project manager present. The developers asked additional technical questions, while the project manager asked higher level behavioral questions to asses my soft skills. I came away with a positive overall impression of the company and its work environment, at least as far as the IT department goes.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McKesson Information Solutions in March 2010.
Interview Details – Recruiter and the company had a very good relationship that allowed me to get interviewed and hired in an efficient manner. Recruiter contacted me about my resume on a job site or craigslist, and I interviewed with them. They informed me about the position and its details, and got back to me in around a week. After calling my references and further phone conversations, I got an in-person interview at the company and was hired immediately.
