I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at McKesson (King of Prussia, PA) in January 2015.
Overview discussions with the managing director followed by technical interview with architecture and Sr. developers. That was followed by a "coding" test which involved modification of a poorly put together java program. The program had many mistakes and in the real world would need to be refactored before making any modifications. The quality of the code mode it very difficult to modify and in my opinion could therefore not be an accurate evaluation of the programmers skills. It could be just me but I found that very distracting. The coding example was also conducted with two developers staring over my shoulder. I personally found this a difficult situation to work under.

My time wasted my time a was completely unprofessional. A total of 8 interviews in 3 days and not even a phone call or email to say (we are not moving forward ). Complete waste and disrespect of my time.

I applied through other source. I interviewed at McKesson.
It is important for anyone interviewing to know about "targeted selection" process. They are trying to see if you hit the target - meaning describe how you can do the job.

I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at McKesson.
After three months and 9 interviews - (3 phone interviews/6 in person) and hours spent following up with them: they decided they were going to cancel the position and not hire anyone. I have heard other people that I know say that it was a 6 month interview process for them before they were told they were not going forward with the position. Don't waste your time on Mckesson.

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.
- What would you do if you were asked to work with a difficult customer that was faced with a difficult buying decision on one of our products? Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
Things were working out that I was going to have to move on another job more quickly.

20 minute screening interview then referred to the main internal recruiter. Screener said cannot guarantee the next recruiter would contact me but she would recommend me. Waiting to see if I get to the next step.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at McKesson (Moorestown, NJ) in December 2014.
I was contacted within 2 weeks of completing the online application process. The two interviewers were professional and the process was not pressured. I was advised that they don't drag out their hiring process for months. A week after my initial interview, I was called back for an interview with a VP. I was even more impressed after hearing more about this divisions beginnings and vision for the future. It's been a couple of weeks without a response, but I remain hopeful as McKesson appears to be aligned in the booming field of healthcare product distribution. They are already a leading player in the industry and posed for greater expansion with recent mergers.
