    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at McKesson in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview went really well.
    A simple programming test and 4 -5 1:1 interviews after that. Overall they concentrated more on the technical skills and the experience. Also, there was some emphasis on what they are expecting from you/what their future plans are...
    One awesome from the office. Looks like office culture is very friendly in nature.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at McKesson in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    After applying online, the interview process started several weeks later with a phone interview where I was asked a bit about my background. I was then asked a few softball questions about C++ which gradually got more difficult, until I could no longer answer any questions (compiler specific questions about the implementation of virtual functions via v tables).

    I was brought in for an in person interview about a week later. The interview lasted about an hour and consisted of a number of questions from a panel about C# syntax, SQL, and database internals. I thought I did pretty well, but drew a couple of blanks with regard to simple concepts in C# that I typically don't think about or use in depth (in particular, I was asked to review some code using boxing/unboxing semantics and I couldn't tell if it would behave as expected or even compile, I am used to having a compiler and an IDE tell me that).

    After the panel interview I was thanked for my time and never heard from them again.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview was relatively easy, HR that asked all the basic questions one might expect. Tell us about a time that you face a challenge and how did you overcome it. I felt very comfortable during the entire process, and must admit that HR did a good job explaining the position responsibilities.

    Interview Details

    Initially had an on campus interview scheduled online which led to an office tour / interview at the company. The tour was informative but long. Lunch was provided and I interviewed with the same employee I interviewed with the first time as well as one other person. They asked similar questions to the first interview's questions.
