    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

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

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at McKesson in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with a recruiter. They asked about, how you heard about the job, some basic background about yourself, and then briefly go through your resume. The conversation lasted about 30 minute. There were no major technical questions, they were pretty easy to answer. When the interview ended, they say they will have the hiring manager contact you.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at McKesson in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter called the day after I submitted my application and resume. Secondary interview with one of the supervisors within a week and I knew that I was hired after the second interview was over. Very easy process. Apparently they were seeking to fill these positions very quickly.

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions were related to nursing practice and what you would do in a certain situation, those were the most difficult due to the nature of triage. Otherwise very little difficulty.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No real negotiation.

    Technical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    They set up 30 minutes interviews with at least 5 managers and directors. When I say 30 minutes, I mean exactly 30 minutes. Each person asks basically the same questions, so you end up repeating yourself 5 times. Many of the questions were not related to the position's duties. I didn't have a good idea of what the exact job duties were. Each person explained it differently, including the recruiter.

    Interview Questions
    • Teach me to tie a shoe. One person was asked to demonstrate how to dance.   Answer Question
