Very Easy Interview

Manager Interview

Manager
Richmond, VA

I interviewed at McKesson Medical-Surgical in May 2009.

Interview Details – The interviewers didn't seem to have enough time to interview me. It was an easy interview, with basic questions that asked me to think of examples from previous employers of how I achieved certain goals. It would have been nice to been able to know more about the lack of culture that this company has during the interview process.

Interview Question – It was all, give an example of when you led a team to solve a problem?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – they only negotiated the signing bonus, not the base salary.

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager
Richmond, VA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at McKesson Medical-Surgical in March 2011.

Interview Details – Initial communications w/ company recruiter who already determined I was a good fit for the position. The hiring manager talked through the interview, would finish my sentences, spoke very fast, and I felt like he was trying to hurry through the interview. The second interview was with a team member who had never done an interview (read off a standard list of questions). The recruiter keeps reaching out to me every 6-12 months for positions. I am always one of the top candidates; however, I feel like they are disorganized and not focused on the key factors that are essential for the position.

Interview Question – What were your 3 greatest professional accomplishments?   View Answer

Inventory Analyst Interview

Inventory Analyst

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at McKesson Medical-Surgical in September 2011.

Interview Details – I was already with the company. The HR rep who had interviewed me before knew my skill set and knew what I was looking for. He reached out to me and let me know of this opened position I might be interested. I had to do an internal interview process. I applied for the position, a week later got a call from HR for the first interview. It consisted a serious of behavior interview questions, my skill sets and etc. Then got a call for an interview with hiring manager about a day or two later. Went through a serious of behavior interview questions, technical questions, etc. Both interviewers were very pleasant.

Interview Question – How do you handle troubleshooting?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was offered the position, but I didn't like the salary. I presented my case for why I think my skill set where within a certain range and the offer wasn't meeting my requirement. The hiring manager and the HR team worked together and came back with a different offer. They were very open when I suggested the new range and came back within 2 days with a new offer.
