Software Engineer (Medventive, Waltham, MA) Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at McKesson in June 2010.
Interview Details – The phone conversation were intelligent and cogent and organized.
The interviewers were unorganized, uninformed, and not qualified for interviewing. The interviewers flailed at asking questions without any regard to finding anything relevant. They simply were not interested and were going though the motions.
My advice: if you are not one of the first candidates to be interviewed, do not go to the interview.
Interview Question – Some sql questions were good Answer Question
Corporate Account Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 6 months - interviewed 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 Question – nothing out of the ordinary. Answer Question
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.
Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at McKesson in August 2010.
Interview Details – Meet and Greet at McKesson in Atlanta, followed by a few rounds of interviews. After some negotiations, was given verbal offer. Later I was told the hiring manager was no longer with McKesson and they asked that I start the process over. I said no thank you, and moved on.
Interview Question – Would you be willing to work a little from home each night Answer Question
Software Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at McKesson in August 2010.
Interview Details – After applying online, the interview process started several weeks later with a phone interview where I was asked a bit about my background. I was then asked a few softball questions about C++ which gradually got more difficult, until I could no longer answer any questions (compiler specific questions about the implementation of virtual functions via v tables).
I was brought in for an in person interview about a week later. The interview lasted about an hour and consisted of a number of questions from a panel about C# syntax, SQL, and database internals. I thought I did pretty well, but drew a couple of blanks with regard to simple concepts in C# that I typically don't think about or use in depth (in particular, I was asked to review some code using boxing/unboxing semantics and I couldn't tell if it would behave as expected or even compile, I am used to having a compiler and an IDE tell me that).
After the panel interview I was thanked for my time and never heard from them again.
