    Pharmacy Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Worth, TX

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at McKesson (Fort Worth, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I received a phone call from a recruiter who did a phone interview/pre-screen for the position. She then passed my resume on to an HR person who then (about 2 days later) scheduled me for a face to face interview with the hiring manager. From the time I had the phone screen to the time I actually had the face to face was about 2 weeks. So once I arrived at the building I was greeted by a receptionist who gave me a visitors badge and took my ID. I was escorted to a conference room where I patiently waited for the manager to arrive and interview me. To my surprise, 6 people showed up and I was given a panel interview (I was under the impression it would be just the manager) the interview was pretty intense, all 6 people asked 2 or 3 questions a piece and it lasted about 45 minutes. After the interview, the manager gave me a quick tour of the facility and explained more in detail what the job would entail. After the tour he took me back to the conference room where I thought I would grab my purse and leave.... to my surprise however, the Director of Operations wanted to interview me as well. So I was interviewed by him and that lasted about 15 minutes. Before leaving, He told me I could expect hear something back within a couple of days.... it has been 2 weeks and I have not heard anything from anyone. I can only assume I did not get the position, which is fine. I just wish they would let you know instead of leaving you hanging and wondering. That alone lets me know they aren't a company I would want to work for.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McKesson.

    Interview

    Hr and then a technical phone interview. I applied for a senior role and they interviewed me like a new grad. I was hoping for challenging questions like how would you solve a problem, what algorithms you use and how do you validate your model sort of things. Instead, the interviewer asked me what is the difference between bayesian and frequentist, what is Naive bayes classification and its assumptions etc.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Walpole, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at McKesson (Walpole, MA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Received email from HR requesting phone interview. The phone interview with HR was simply a monologue on their part- very few questions were asked of me. The interviewer seemed fully disinterested and in a hurry.
    I then received a request to phone interview with the hiring manager. I was sent an email with the date and time- very challenging to meet their time constraints. The manager interview was more of the same- a monologue.
    I've not heard back, and frankly this isn't the company for me. It seems there's a lot of turnover- and judging by the way both HR and the hiring manager acted, I can see why.
