    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at McKesson Information Solutions in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    I went to a recruiting dinner, which was informal and informative. The initial interview was a few standard behavioral questions. I got a call saying I made it to the next round a week or so later. That consisted of a 5 minute presentation, 5 minute sales call, and a 30 minute 1 on 1 with the director. They call that their "first round." It's pretty nerve wrecking, but it turned out to be pretty low stress. Everyone was really nice. The final round came a couple of weeks later, and that was only a 30 minute phone interview. I don't quite understand the logic of that, but oh well.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at McKesson Information Solutions in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with at least 10 people, as I got pretty far into the interview process. I was very impressed with the caliber of people I met, and also was impressed that they all seemed quite affable. From what I could tell of the culture, it is probably a great place to work. I was disappointed to not get an offer, but hey, that's life.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Alpharetta, GA
    Application Details

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at McKesson Information Solutions in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    Fairly simple. They look for sales AND industry experience...otherwise you're kind of out of luck. They look for people who have been VERY successful in the past. If you have a clinical background it is a plus but they will take just successful too. They are open about hiring people who have worked for the competition (Cerner, Eclipsys, Epic, etc.) but only if you have a proven track record. The east coast office is very formal. Aim to be the best dressed person in the room. They are a charismatic bunch but don't be afraid to ask them how you're doing and what their perception is of you and what your chances are. Also, in the words of an SRVP they "Don't do Friends and Family." Come on your own and be great and you're in.

    Technical Trainer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at McKesson Information Solutions in November 2011.

    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.
