    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McKesson in May 2011.

    I applied for this position and within 2 weeks I received an email for a phone screen. The interviewer was very nice and honest. Questions were, "What do you know about McKesson?", Tell me about your background..., and tell me what you feel you can contribute to the role?" also...make sure you review the job description and share the details of how your skill set is transferable. Ask about the starting date and follow up in terms of notification to hire.

    Associate Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at McKesson in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    After being emailed by a recruiter, I had an initial phone interview/screening. The screening lasted 20 minutes and was as much learning about me as it was telling me about McKesson. The recruiter was very nice and it was left that she would send my info on to the hiring manager and then be in touch. After two weeks, I followed up and she replied that the hiring manager had been swamped with a large project over the past few weeks and had not had time to meet to discuss candidates at that point. I again followed up two weeks later, at which point she said they still had not reviewed candidates. I believe the position was never-filled and canned by corporate since it was removed on the job board after a few months with no submission status in their applicant tracking system.

Sat down in a conference room and had a one on one personal interview. He looked over my resume, but I really do think he had read it before the interview. He asked me standard interview questions and I responded accordingly.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Carrollton, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Carrollton, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McKesson in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied through the company website and received a call the following day. First a phone interview, and then an in-person interview with another recruiter. I then received a call for another in-person interview with the hiring manager. During the interview, she told me that she had been interviewing for months for this role and had repeatedly changed and reposted the position. I called and emailed HR afterwards, but no response. I called my recruiter again and she didn't bother calling back- she just sent me a ding email. I wasn't surprised to see the exact same position listed as a 'new' position on their website a week later.

    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at McKesson in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview prior to this interview. I was flown to the Phx location on their dime and given a rental car. The interview was not difficult, the personnel on the panel were prompt, courteous and positive. This was one of the most relaxed and pleasant interviews I have ever had. I did not get this position as they went with another candidate. However, they called me back to let me know of their choice. That way I wasn't waiting by the phone wondering. Good experience.

    It was an all day affair. Several students from my college were brought in that day and we took tours of the day and night operations. Also, having a total of 4 separate interviews through out the day. 3 interview were behavioral based and read from a script that the Mangers had to stick with. However, the last interview was the Operations manager and he just wanted to talk to you as a person and get a feel for your personality and what you could be to McKesson. Also, the people interviewing us were the actually managers and not just HR personnel.

    Data Auditor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at McKesson in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    I meet with the hiring manager who was real nice. He did not have a list of prepared questions nor did he write down any of my answers. He talked about the job mostly. He introduced me to another manager who I would not report too. He made it out like I had the job. I never heard back nor did I get a rejection letter either. Very strange.
