    Interview

    Takes about 3 weeks. People were friendly, up front, gracious and sort of busy doing their jobs, so there was a good mix of interaction. Culture seems more in the passing time mode than actually looking enthusiastic.

    Reasons for Declining

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at McKesson in December 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was just a basic phone interview they asked all the basic questions like about job history, education and qualifications. The interview was short it lasted about 10 minutes, after she asked all the questions she explained what the job entailed and what the responsibilities were. Unfortunately they had placed a freeze on hiring the day after I was first contacted.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at McKesson (San Francisco, CA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    One quick (5 minutes max) call with a recruiting screener. Then I spoke to a recruiter who advised me that there were strong internal candidates for the role. I was advised to apply for another role, which was of much less interest to me. Not one to turn down opportunities, I applied!

    My in-office interview for the marketing role was split across two days and when I met a manager on the first day, she was baffled that the recruiter recommended me for the job. (I have a master's degree and the manager was obviously miffed since she had requested an entry-level candidate for the role.) I was very grateful for the honesty and openness when discussing the role with the manager and colleagues.

    I did a 30 minute phone interview with the manager for the rotational development program.

    In the end, I never heard a final decision about the rotational development program and I withdrew my candidacy from the marketing role.
