    Poor Management and will write you up if a mistake is made

    Driver (Current Employee)
    Portland, OR

    ProsGreat Benefits. Poor pay. Average equipment.

    ConsManagement, minimal training, Over-time now that McKesson has purchased us. They want to cut overtime. I was trained for two days. This group flies by the seat of their pants.. The top manager loves to swear alot!

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire the management out of Auburn WA. and use your own management in Wilsonville OR. Management in WA is a bunch of bullies!!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great company

    Help Desk Coordinator I (Current Employee)
    Skokie, IL

    ProsWork environment is good. Great benefits and pay. They believe in work-life balance have a lot of opportunities

    ConsWorking offsite at another company so I don't always get the McKesson experience. Would like McKesson to visit or check in with their employees that are off site

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Terrible Management in Tempe,Az!!!!

    Material Handler (Current Employee)
    Tempe, AZ

    ProsCompensation is good,Business is growing,Fast pace enviorment timesflys by never boring

    ConsNever say anything to management cause all employees will know your personal issues,No teamwok,Promotions based on favoritism, Work balance is poor,Keep all issues to your self and you will be fine.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI feel that you should treat everyone equal and let employees give feed back they do the process everyday and know what works best sense you don't have a procedure. You need to have a Lead in the warehouse, HR have a one on one with each employee,respect from employees in professional manner not as friend, Hire enough employees so your employees wont be so tired working 12+ hrs

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Extreme pressure, little training

    Reimbursement Specialist (Former Employee)
    Tulsa, OK

    ProsVery good benefits, above average compensation

    ConsInconsistent training, high pressure, high expectations

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more time in hands-on training. It's beneficial to the employee and the company to invest time in the employee before expecting complete job knowledge and possible sub-par performance.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Safe and sterile

    Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsGood work life balance
    Low stress
    Typical big company with decent benefit (vacation, healthcare, etc.) and pay.

    ConsNot recommend for anyone with any drive or ambition. McKesson is a sea of mediocrity. Extensive measures are taken to bring under performers up to speed while high performers are generally unappreciated and not supported.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on promoting talent from within. Good people leave and the mediocre ones rise to the top.
