    Vice President Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed 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

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at McKesson.

    Interview Details

    Recruited via on campus event/job board. Phone interview then in person at McKesson headquarter in San Francisco. As part of my interview, they gave me a presentation topic for me to prepare in advance and present to the hiring manager. Everyone I came across was very nice, though seems hard to meet/network with people as the company is so big and decentralized.

    Corporate Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Remote, OR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Remote, OR
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at McKesson.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interviewing process is incredibly slow. About 4 different interviews then about a 3-6 months wait for an offer. I have heard even worse for others. The communication is near horrible and the follow-up is awful. Definitely keep applying other places while this whole process takes place because the hiring process may fall through or they may forget about you.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Be honest what you are requesting so there are no surprises upon final interviews. That way if you are low balled you can quickly tell them you aren't interested in the position and they may increase the salary given their interest in you.

    Hiring manager was a new manager and did not ask one interview question. My next interview was with another business analyst who asked the appropriate interview questions.

    Interview Questions
    • That the hiring manager did not ask even one interview question. That should have been a red flag for what was to come.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The negotiations were verbal and not written in a contract. Therefore what I negotiated for was not upheld since it was not in writing.
