    Interview

    Applied on McKesson website for Operations Supervisor position. I was contacted about a week later by a recruiter. Telephone screening lasted about 30 minutes. Recruiter seemed very distracted...I could hear his car door opening and closing as he was driving his car. I feel as a military vet I was simply used as a number for the recruiter. Recruiter said he would call back within a week but never did.

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at McKesson in June 2015.

    Interview

    The recruiter was responsive throughout the process and after months of attempts to reach me I decided to give it a go:a mistake. The director and I had a hour or so phone interview. I was scheduled for an in person interview with him and two managers. I arrive and it was clear they were not prepared. One of the mangers( I had an invite to speak to three Relay Health/Mckesson Health mangers was not even present, and the other manager was not sure of his whereabouts(Then someone said he had a work from home day). There was confusion over where to conduct the interview. The director was clearly distracted as he kept leaving, finally after they wasted( I could tell they just wanted to be done with the whole thing) two hours the process was brought to an end. The director never returned. However I spent the next 30 minutes trying to get my parking ticket validated at the 2100 Powell location -it never happened so I paid 15 dollars at the auto ticket machine to get out off the parking lot. The only good thing is that they were polite throughout the whole process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at McKesson (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    There were multiple phone interviews and several in person interviews. Total was close to 6 trips to the McKesson building. A very ridiculous process. There is too much growth in the company for them to keep track of what is going on, the right hand never knows what the left is doing.
