    A/R Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Charleston, SC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charleston, SC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McKesson.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and a week later received an email to set up a telephone interview with a recruiter. After the telephone interview, I received another email to set up an onsite interview with two managers.

    Interview Questions
    • The telephone interview were basic questions related to the position. It was to see if you knew basic things.

      The onsite interview was disappointing. The two managers I interviewed with were different than the ones I was told. Most interviews you receive a handshake but I did not. Only one person asked questions while the other just sat there reading my resume'. My resume' really isn't that long. They didn't smile much or seemed excited about the company which made me feel out of place.

    Received a call from one of their recruiters (looks part of the talent acquisition is outsourced) and
    after a few minutes of questions to get information about my background and experience, he said
    he would get pass that information on to the hiring manager and have him talk to me.

    Vice President Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at McKesson.

    Interview Details

    I was networking with a few people and one of them said I should check out McKesson. I got him my resume and was fast tracked through the system. The interview process was very easy for me, I went through HR twice, 2 sales people, and 2 managers. It took about month with some negotiation on salary and PTO days. I was looked at for 2 positions but ended up only applying for the sales role.

    Interview Questions
    • I didn't have anything whacky or odd... the weirdest thing was when one of the managers interviewing me sat on the same side of the desk as me as if we were have a conversion... it was odd but overall pretty straight forward   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Not a lot of negotiation was going to happen, as it was a new role. I did get a few thousand more in my base and upped my PTO days to what I had at my last company.

    Business Process Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at McKesson.

    Interview Details

    Interviewers beware! I first received an email from a recruiter in Atlanta for a Business Process Consultant position either to be in Dallas or Olive Branch. I proceeded with a phone screen interview with the recruiter and then was passed onto the hiring director for a one hour interview. Being successful, I was passed to the manager of the department for a 1/2 hour interview. The recruiter then emailed me to come into a onsite interview for six hours. I explained that I work FT and with a heavy workload I would have trouble giving that much time during the day and asked for alternative options. I was told No and that I would have to use PTO. I explained I was taking all the risks and didn't want to give up my personal time for my family if there wasn't any guarantee at the end. I then asked if there was an actual job and the recruiter never answered my question- essentially dodged it. I checked the website and there was no listing. Essentially I was about to take PTO for a role that didn't even exist.
