    Technical Trainer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at McKesson.

    Interview

    Very lengthy. Four separate interviews. One with HR which is just general interview questions. Strengths and weaknesses type deal. Then ride along with a sales rep to make sure you want to do their job, pretty straight forward. no hard questions. Then with a Sales leader who would be your immediate supervisor which asks you to prove your self and asks very detail oriented and situational questions. Finally with the Regional VP of sales, a little more relaxed but still along the same line of questioning, that might be why it was more relaxed....already had time to think about most of the questions.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you sell "this" to me if this was your nth attempt and I never give you my attention?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Offer was much more than I know most were offered so i jumped on it.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at McKesson in March 2014.

    Interview

    I was screened by a recruiter who explained that she was just the first step and if I "passed" her screening then my resume would be forwarded to the local office for review. The interview included all of the typical questions. When the interview was finished, the recruiter replied, "Well, you obviously made it to the next round." But then shortly after she offered, "If you do not hear anything in the next week, just forget about the job."

    Interview Questions

    • None of the questions were difficult however, the recruiter typed significantly more than I actually spoke, which made me conscious of not only what I was saying but my tone and speed of speaking. I could not guess what else she was typing, unless she was a bad typist and needed to go back to fix mistakes. It was intimidating to listen to her type long after I was done answering a question.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at McKesson in January 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview, then went to f2f interview. After that had to complete a 3 hour case study. 2 hours to prepare and 1 hour to present. Very difficult, a little confusing. Will have to present a case study that is very ambiguous. Ask lots of questions to be sure the interviewer instructions and instructions on the case study are consistent.
