    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at McKesson (New York, NY).

    Interview

    This company obviously needs more recruiters. I've interviewed for 2 positions and each time the recruiter (different ppl) took 2+ weeks to get back to me with definite interview times. Each time the recruiter would say they were coordinating with the hiring manager or the office or something else and "would get back to me." This second interview the recruiter gave me a date but not a time (TWICE). After repeated calls and emails she finally emailed me back and blamed the office stating they actually had to reschedule (who knows if that's true). For the second time it happened again. It's been a week since that scheduled date and she literally still hasn't responded to anything. I don't personally know where the office is or I'd be proactive. Thankfully I've accepted another job but I wonder how much this company is missing out on. Each recruiter said I was a top candidate but they need to get it together. It's not efficient to take 1 1/2+ months for an in-person interview. Each recruiter would apologize and state they have soooo much going on but it's simply ridiculous. It takes 2 weeks to get a email response and longer for any actual coordination. If you can get through it does seem like a really good company with great pay.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McKesson (Irving, TX).

    Interview

    3 hour in person interview session at the Irving office.
    They were confused on their own schedule and two people called into the conference room I was in 15 mins late instead of walking into the room. Then a panel interview with 5 people to discuss a case study they had me prepare for ahead of time. Then one on one with one person that was also on the panel. Then with two others that were on the panel. Then a wrap-up discussion with VP who was also on the panel.

    I normally don't do reviews on social media but feel obligated to alert/warn other job seekers and colleagues who may consider this company. They admitted they are in a "state of flux" with their move from San Francisco in February. But, they still don't have key players in place and didn't even have a hiring manager for this role yet. In fact, they couldn't tell me exactly what the product/program was that I would be working on and just said it hadn't been determined yet. At the end of the interviews, they told me even before I left the building that they didn't feel like I was a fit. Pretty amazing since they didn't even tell me what I would be doing so I could truly know if I was a fit or highlight the areas of my background the were related to the specific role. I was very surprised they were interviewing someone without a hiring manager or a specific job as well as what seemed like a disjointed interview approach since they are a Fortune 5 company. Maybe that will change soon too. Unfortunately, this was a waste of time for them and myself since I can't say I learned anything through the process except that I am I did not join this particular group at this time.

    Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McKesson (San Francisco, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Terribly unprofessional phone interview - had an appointment scheduled, they auto cancelled a few minutes after it was scheduled to start, and then called me a few minutes later to ask if I had a piece of experience. When I said I didn't, the recruiter effectively told me they couldn't move forward. While it didn't seem to be her fault, that's a piece of information you can clarify in an email rather than scheduling a phone screen, canceling it last minute and then calling a few minutes later to ask the question.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at McKesson (Atlanta, GA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, received a email requesting for a telephone interview with a recruiter. I scheduled a time and received confirmation of my telephone interview. The day of my phone interview the recruiter called almost 30 minutes late. She explained time got away from her and she wanted to set another time. We set up another time and day. I was ready and waiting for her to call and she never called again. I sent her an email stating that if this is how McKesson conducts business, I don't want any part of it and to take my name off the list for consideration.

    I applied online. I interviewed at McKesson.

    Interview

    Condescending and Aburpt: Only apply here if you are an exact match to role and their salary range, even though you don't know what range is.. You have to really want to work for them, versus exploring the opportunity. ALL initial questions all seemed about screening people out, rather than looking for a skills to the position that was posted. Never even discussed the posting after 11 mins the leading questions got me to " NO " pile.
