    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at McKesson.

    Interview

    Normal interview with a manager, phone and in person. Tour of location, meet employees and other stuff, overall it is a good experience. There are multiple managers so there can be many interviews. After the interview there is a drug test that needs to be passed before you can begin working. There isn't very much training after you get the job.

    Account Executive Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at McKesson in July 2015.

    Interview

    Was called to interview with hiring manager, which was a 2 hour drive away. The same day, I was contacted by email to continue the process with a local account rep, and was called by that rep immediately to schedule. That interview took place the next day. While things moved very quickly in the beginning, it took nearly another two weeks even with follow up to find out they went in another direction. While the interview itself was pretty standard, I thought it was inconsiderate that no one reached out to even let me know they chose someone else given the quick pace of the interview process. I just found it very unprofessional to run someone around, driving two hours each way for interviews, then never let them know what happened with the position.

    Second face-to-face interview consisting of three consecutive 30 minute interviews with different members of the project management team followed by a one hour case study and presentation activity. As with the first face-to-face interview, this one did not start on time. Had to wait in the lobby for nearly 15 minutes before someone showed up to bring me inside. No one seemed to know what was the next step in the hiring process.
